Uli Jon Roth: on 70000 tons cruise line up

Imagine starting the year in style. In January 2011, 40 Heavy Metal bands and 2,000 fans will go to the Caribbean to take over the luxury cruise ship "Majesty of the Seas" for a 5 day and 4 night trip of a lifetime.

Make no mistake, this is not one of the cruises where you share the ship with regular cruise guests... This is 100% Heavy Metal! Tons of onboard live shows on several in and outdoor stages, open mic nights, bars that never close, a fun-and-sun-filled day on the beautiful island of Cozumel (Mexico) and an opportunity to mingle side-by-side with the artists in this incredibly fan-friendly scenario that has no comparison. It's like everyone has a backstage pass!

What are you waiting for? You might even need a vacation from this vacation when all is said and done! Book your cabin NOW!

Hendrix’s death affected the young Satriani in a deep way. “It was a very traumatic, cathartic event for me,” he said.

To this day, Satriani carries with him part of Jimi’s spirit whenever he performs. You can hear it in the frequent Hendrix tributes during the epic show-closing jams of Satriani’s semi-regular G3 tours, where he trades Jimi licks with peers like Paul Gilbert, Eric Johnson, Steve Vai and John Petrucci. You can also hear it in the free, loose spirit of Satriani’s self-titled 1995 album, where he laid down funky grooves live in the studio with a crack band of skilled improvisers. more

Garrett Peters: tribute to Elias Viljanen

My cover of Sonata Arctica's Flag In The Ground Solo.

Guitarist: Elias "E.Vil" Viljanen
Album: The Days Of Grays (2009)
Tuning: D Standard
(Not sure if that's correct. But that's how I'm playing it) He has a 7 string so I kinda had to guess.

As most of you may (should) know, I am a huge Sonata Arctica fan. I know this isn't a Jani Liimatainen song/solo but don't you worry, I will DEFINITELY have more Sonata videos in the future. And maybe some of Jani's new stuff from Cain's Offering! (If you haven't checked them out, I suggest you do so). But yea I really liked this solo and it was well written, so please no hating on Elias or comparing or any of that. Thank you!
