Alex Lifeson: Rush guitarist on steampunk, solos and Moving Pictures

Alex Lifeson interview:
"To be honest, there's nothing I'd rather be doing," Lifeson says. "What's going on with the band right now is so fantastic, and the acceptance we're getting from the audiences - I've been saying this for a few years now so I should probably stop, but it really feels like the best time to be in Rush. The three of us are enjoying every second of it."

And with good reason: even without the benefit of a new album (although they recently released two songs, the rifftastic Caravan and BU2B), Rush are experiencing the kind of banner year that most bands, veterans or newbies, can only dream about. There's the sold-out Time Machine tour (sure, doing their beloved 1981 album Moving Pictures in its entirety hasn't hurt ticket sales, but packing 'em in hasn't been a guarantee for any act during this tough economic year). There's the universally well-received documentary Beyond The Lighted Stage, which details the history of the group but also exposes a rich and humanistic (and, at times, wildly funny) side to their story rarely seen in rock docs. more

Joe Satriani: ask Joe at musicradar

Joe Satriani's upcoming release, Black Swans And Wormhole Wizards, ranks with his greatest of works. An absorbing, enthralling and altogether mind-blowing artistic statement by one of rock's most gifted instrumentalists, it's sure to thrill music fans across the globe. (Be sure to check out MusicRadar's exclusive album preview, with commentary by Satch himself and streaming audio of his newest single Light Years Away, just to get yourself up to speed.)

And guess what? In a little over a week, Joe Satriani is sitting down with MusicRadar for an interview. But this won't be just any Q&A. No sir. This time, Satch is going to answer your questions!

What to ask? Well, you can grill him about the status of Chickenfoot if you like. Or you can ask about the recording of Black Swans and what plans he has for his imminent tour. Want to know something about his line of Ibanez guitars or Vox products? Ask him! This is your shot, so make it count. (Of course, you can always ask him that most burning question of all: "So Joe, what is Michael Anthony really like?" But we won't put words in your mouth.)

News: Guitar Toy Box, so long and thanks for all the fish...

Chris Watson describes himself thus:
Chris is a washed up has been grunge god trying to find redemption in the blues, but being side tracked by progressive metal, real life, and fantasies of composing professional wrestling theme music. He has a very out of date website at and a home studio still in pieces one year on from moving house.He also tweets @chrislwatson.

His guitar blog has always been well worth a read, but like many other bloggers, Chris has found out that the blogging process takes a considerable amount of resource, and Chris came to the conclusion that the blogging was getting in the way of his real passion... guitar. Read the full account and reasons why he quit blogging.

I need to be making music with my guitars again. I need to be musically creative. I need to play. To this effect, I have relaunched Chris Watson Music. This is a site about my music, making music, loving music, performing music. Not that you would know it as there is basically no real content on there just yet, but it is growing. This is my new focus. I plan on documenting what I learn, what I create, what I enjoy. And that does not leave time for GTB.

News: Nation Guitar Workshop 4 day review!

"From The Wood shed blog" has given a very interesting account of their time at the Nation Guitar Workshop, including:
I'm at the National Guitar Workshop in Los Angeles this week. It's held at the Loyola Marymount campus from this Sunday through Friday. I always wanted to attend the Seattle camp when I was a kid, but it conflicted with my favorite annual family trip every summer. This year I was offered a job as RA for the week. (I was in a combo at SDSU directed by Nate Jarrell; he's been involved with NGW for years.) I took it, knowing I'd be able to sit in on classes and meet a ton of musicians. There are about 100 students, half kids, half adults, mostly dudes.

Yesterday's check in was crazy, and left me no time to write this post. Orientation started with a warmup band, featuring faculty on guitars and drums, and one of my three fellow RAs on bass. Rules were laid down with a stern delivery, and the teachers were introduced: Toby Ahrens, Reggie Chavez, Blake Colie, Tom Dempsey, David Ellis, Baba Elefante, Jody Fisher, Adrian Galysh, Todd Johnson, Dave Martone, Martha Masters, Jared Meeker, Neil Nagaoka, Cameron Peace, Nick Tocco. The featured guest artists, each giving an afternoon clinic, are Paul Gilbert, William Kanengiser, Pat Martino, and Duke Robillard. I am PUMPED to see Pat Martino.
