Shawn Lane: Throwing Elephant and Wrestling

Here is Shawn Lane, Jonas Hellborg and Anders Johansson playing "Throwing Elephant and Wrestling", at Frankfurt, Germany, on the 3rd Sept 1995.

Shawn plays a great Keyboard solo in this track, sandwiched between 2 guitar solos. :-D

The date for this gig may be slightly wrong, as they 'apparently' played a gig in China on that same day, where they were on tour opening for Wei Wei at various locations around China during Sept 1995.

I had to give this track a very sneaky (probably unnoticeable) edit to fit it here on YouTube... just a minute and a half or so. :-)

Brian Setzer: rushed to hospital

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Three-time Grammy Award-winner Brian Setzer was rushed to an Albuquerque-area hospital after cutting short a concert.
Setzer, former frontman of the Stray Cats, had performed three Christmas-themed songs with his Brian Setzer Orchestra when he left the stage Monday night during a sold-out concert at Isleta Resort and Casino.
A publicist for Setzer didn't immediately respond to phone and e-mail messages left by The Associated Press.
An announcer came on stage about 9 p.m. and announced that Setzer had been taken to an undisclosed hospital.

Charly Sahona: new cd details

Charly Sahona is best known as the guitarist in the modern French progressive metal band Venturia. Late 2008 saw Charly begin work on what has become his debut solo album entitled “Naked Thoughts From A Silent Chaos” set for release on February 19th 2010 on Lion Music. This 8 track release is built around heavy riffs, catchy vocal lines and crazy solos. Comparisons can be made if one was to fuse Dream Theater with Muse and 30 Seconds To Mars. This album offers a fresh sound, modern and direct, heavy and begs to be heard.

“Naked Thoughts From A Silent Chaos” sees Charly Sahona not only perform all guitar and keyboard duties but also step up to the microphone for the first time. The rest of the trio of musicians are Venturia band mates Diego Rapacchietti (Drums ) and Thomas James-Potrel (Bass) who have created an ultra powerful power trio format.

This 8 song collection sees Charly Sahona show again his abilities as a talented multi-instrumentalist and as a songwriter as well. "Naked Thoughts From A Silent Chaos” delivers an exceptionally high quality with immense crossover appeal.

Track Listing
1. Relieved.
2. Raise the Shadow .
3. Away From Our Sins.
4. Forgotten Past.
5. River of Lies.
6. Living In A Dream Is Not Right.
7. It Will Fly Away.
8. All That Can't Be Said

Full album info coming soon and video for "Relieved" coming soon.
