Alex Lifeson: Guitarist interview

Alex Lifeson: "The documentary changed a lot of things with people's perception of the band and its history. We're seeing so many different people coming to shows and I have to say the most noticeable thing is the number of women that now come to shows. Traditionally we've been a guys' band and the only females we would see – mostly not all – were the ones that were dragged by their husbands or boyfriends.

"I think we had our smattering of actual fans but now, and I think it's been due to the documentary, probably a quarter of our audience is female. But true fans – they know the material, we can see them singing and they'll come in groups; three or four girls coming to a Rush show is crazy."

Do you think outsiders can see what the band are about more now because of the film - your sense of humour as much as your musical integrity...

"It's created a curiosity, particularly for people that thought of us in a certain way and had no interest in our music before. Suddenly this has piqued their interest – they see us as people but also, everybody in their secret heart wants to be in a rock band and here we are living the dream.

"We're older guys now but we've been doing it since we were teenagers and along the way there's this story about who we are as people. Not only as musicians but the way we function in our world, what friendship and family means. And I think a lot of people relate to that, whether they're a fan of ours or not. Suddenly there's this story that they find compelling." more

Greg Howe: India interview

Thanks to Rich Murray from guitar channel for spotting this
To say that meeting guitar legend Greg Howe was among the greatest moments of my life would be an understatement. To say that interviewing above mentioned legend was an honour would be another understatement. I caught up with guitar virtuoso Greg Howe on the eve of his debut gig in India and apart from speaking about India’s weather and the traffic regulations here, we also spoke about Michael Jackson, Planet X and VSTs. Read on for more…
HB: Hi Greg, I’m Madhav from Headbangers India and we’re the online partners for your India tour.
GH: Great!
HB: Is this your first time in India? How do you like the place?
GH: Yeah, this is our first time here. Everything’s been great, I’m looking forward to seeing more of the place as the tour goes on.
HB: We’ll start with a basic question. What music do you listen to?
GH: Hmm, I listen to everything but surprisingly, I listen to a lot of mainstream music that can be considered pop. Top 40 stuff. I’ve done so much listening to so much complex music over the years that I really welcome music that’s relatable to a lot of people. And I actually enjoy a lot of the stuff. I like the ‘hook’ element that a lot of the music has. But honestly, I listen to everything. Jazz, rock and metal, country, hip-hop; you name it, I listen to it. more

Rune Berre,David Locke,Nikolay Karageorgiev: T-Rex Blue Bug winners announced

Man this was a tough one to pick for those fantastic T Rex pedals. I would like to thank T-Rex for supplying the amazing prizes without which this type of competition would not be possible. T-Rex... you guys rule! If you are at NAMM, don't forget to check out the demo booth where they will have all the pedals


NAMM 2011: T-Rex launches Reptile 2, Twister 2, and Tonebug Sustainer

Reptile 2:
Originally conceived to offer the killer delay tone and certain controls found on its 'big brother' Replica pedal at a more affordable price, the Reptile gets a facelift for 2011. It now features a convenient Tap Tempo function, allowing the user to quickly and easily get in sync in a live setting. The Reptile 2 also features an enhanced set of Flutter controls, providing great retro-sounding, tape-delay 'warble'.

Twister 2:
Another classic T-Rex pedal updated for 2011! We gave the Twister a face-lift based on user feed-back, and it has been completely updated with new hardware and software. The Light / Heavy switch has been removed and the Twister 2 covers a wider tonal range than the original Twister. The new software update does the trick - by adjusting Depth, Tone and Rate, you can make Twister II deliver both old-fashioned vintage sound as well as a more modern chorus sound.

Tonebug Sustainer:
The Tonebug Sustainer joins this growing line of T-Rex pedals built with a simple philosophy in mind: to offer the classic T-Rex tone found in our higher-end pedals, with intuitive, uncomplicated controls, at a price that any guitarist can afford. The Tonebug Sustainer first compresses the signal, and then applies gain to keep your tone playing. The result is gorgeous, natural-sounding sustain for long-lasting power chords. Your tone is preserved, with no artificial colouring. Features Compression, Sustain, and Attack controls.

The Winners:
The backing track lends itself to be played over in so many ways and styles. I had to listen to the first round entries at least 3 times to decide who would go through on my list.  Each judge had their own list to complete but it was great to see that we ended up with similar lists at the end. Getting that down to the final 3 was super hard.... but here they are
