Scali is a guitarist from The Hague. He has been playing since the age of 16, is mostly self-taught, and inspired mostly by 80s/90s guitarists such as Joe Satriani, but also interested in various other guitarists, such as Shawn Lane or Les Paul. After about 2 years, he and a friend got together and started writing and recording songs, and performing them on occasion. When starting university, this creative cooperation came to an end. But now Scali finds himself with a renewed interest in playing and writing music. Jamming along with fellow musicians through the internet, writing and recording songs, and trying to put a new band together.http://www.myspace.com/scalibq

Los Angeles, CA, July 15, 2009 — To commemorate a million CUBE amplifiers sold, Roland U.S. has launched a new contest where enthusiasts of the legendary CUBE-Series can win one of every CUBE amplifier currently being made.
CUBE amplifiers are known for packing a sonic punch in a portable package, and Roland wants to know how players use their CUBE. This can be any Roland CUBE-Series amplifier, from the original CUBE-40, to the newest member of the CUBE family, the CUBE-80X. To enter, all contestants have to do is register online and upload a photo of them and their CUBE. Contestants can register as many photos as they would like.
Photos are encouraged to be as innovative and creative as possible, since the photos with the most interesting concepts will win. First, second, and third place winners will be selected by a panel of judges at Roland. First place will win one of every CUBE amplifier Roland currently manufactures, 14 in total. Second place will have a choice of five CUBE amps, and third place will have a choice of three CUBE amps.
“The CUBE-Series has been the workhorse of guitar amps for decades,” says Peter Swiadon, Product Marketing Manager. “We are excited to have a contest to celebrate the many ways in which our customers use their CUBE amplifiers. With over a million sold, we’re sure there will be a lot of diversity.”
Entries for the “One in a Million” CUBE amplifier contest will be taken from July 15th - September 30th. Contest is for U.S. residents only.

EUROPE - "LAST LOOK AT EDEN"
UK Album Release: 14th September 09
Europe, Sweden's biggest selling hard rock band, are pleased to announce the 14th September release of their eighth studio album "Last Look At Eden" - the first studio album since 2006's critically acclaimed "Secret Society". The album will be released by Edel Germany's international rock music label earMUSIC.
To coincide with the band's headline appearance at the Bloodstock Festival on August 16th (www.bloodstock.uk.com), Europe will release the 'Last Look at Eden' 5-track mini album on Monday August 10th, featuring the album's title track as well as a previously never-before-released live version of the Led Zeppelin classic 'Since I've Been Loving You'.
After shooting to fame in 1986 with the hugely successful single 'The Final Countdown',Europe spent the next 10 years touring the world and released two further albums 'Out of this World' and 'Prisoners in Paradise'. After taking a break from the limelight for most of the 1990's, a break which many fans thought would be the end of the band, Europe got back together for a one-off new year's eve performance in Stockholm in 1999 and announced their official reunion in 2003 by welcoming back original guitarist and founding member John Norum. Since then, Europe has released two studio albums - 'Start From The Dark' (2004) and 'Secret Society' (2006).
Now back and stronger than ever before, Europe gear up to release 'Last Look at Eden' - a monumental hard rock album packed with undeniably skilled song writing and musicianship. The album features John Norum's signature guitar tones and proves that Joey Tempest still has one of the most powerful and gifted voices in rock music today.
From the epic title track to the melodic ballad 'New Love in Town' this album is on another level, less extreme than previous offering 'Secret Society' and with matured sound, 'Last Look at Eden' is a mix of all the elements that have made Europe famous the world over.
"This time we're taking a new direction with out songs, and we're exploring different styles," says Tempest. "There is a definite classic rock vibe on several tracks on this album - a tip of the hat to groovin', funkin' 70's rock songs, with a modern twist."
Adds Tempest - "We've got a couple of great ballads, plus some thundering rock tracks that will put you flat on your ass! We've taken the best bits from our recent albums and taken it to a new level 'Last Look at Eden' is more of a Europe album than 'Secret Society' or 'Start From The Dark'. We had to make those albums in order to do this."
