Marty Friedman: auctioning my last Jackson guitar left!!

Marty Friedman:
Also, later this week I will be auctioning my last Jackson guitar left. But this is for a different charity, this is for my bro Jason Becker`s medical bills. In all these years, Jason has never once asked me for charity, I`m just doing it this time because it feels good and because this guitar was special to the both of us. This is my first Jackson, which I recorded all of Dragons Kiss, most of the Cacophony albums and my parts on Perpetual Burn, as well as a lot of the first 2 Megadeth albums with. I will put the link up here soon- so bid high, my friends!!

Joe Satriani, Steve Vai: Cliff Cultreri benefit show II



(Los Angeles, CA) Legendary guitarists JOE SATRIANI and STEVE VAI announce plans for a benefit concert supporting music industry veteran and friend, Cliff Cultreri. "A Benefit for Cliff II" will take place on Sunday, July 10th at the House of Blues, Hollywood, and will feature performances by both Satriani and Vai, as well as special guests, to be announced.

Cliff Cultreri is the A&R executive who "discovered' both Satriani and Vai, as well as many other popular recording artists, while working at Relativity Records. Cultreri is suffering from a host of Auto-Immune and Connective-Tissue disorders that are simultaneously attacking his immune system, a 1 in 100 million occurrence that causes severe pain and physical debilitations. In 2006, Satriani and Vai joined forces for the first Cultreri benefit show. They raised money as well as attention to the devastation this disease takes out on both the patient and their family. Satriani and Vai hope to raise even more funds with this year's benefit to help Cultreri and his family's financial needs.

Cultreri was most recently VP of A&R at Koch Entertainment where he worked with such artists as RZA, B.G., Turk, Ying Yang Twins, Corrupt, Death Row, Big Gip & Good Mob, Master P, and many others. During his years in the industry, Cultreri has served as A&R for a number of top names, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Allan Holdsworth, Billy Sheehan & Talas, Peter Frampton, Megadeth, Corrosion Of Conformity, Exodus, Anthrax, Death, Venom, Slash's Snakepit, Cradle Of Filth, Godflesh, Our Lady Peace, My Bloody Valentine, The Cure, Modern English, Gene Loves Jezebel, Fat Joe, Common, Bone Thugs N Harmony, 3-6 Mafia, KRS 1, Beatnuts, C Murder, Kurupt, Soulja Slim, RZA, and many others in all genres of music. In addition, he has received 18 Grammy nominations, 13 Gold and 14 Platinum, and Multi-Platinum awards for albums on which he was the executive producer, co-producer or A&R. He won Grammy's for "Song of the Year" and "Album of the Year" with Bone Thugs 'N Harmony for which he served as A&R.

"Cliff has been a musical force and guiding light in my career and my life for two decades. He introduced and championed my music to the recording business. He is a dear friend and musical ally and quite the guitar player himself," said Satriani. "Steve and I wanted to help Cliff and the idea of a show in LA with other members of the guitar community seemed to be the obvious way to celebrate and help him."

Tickets prices start at $75 for general admission and are set to go on sale Friday, May 6th at 10:00 am PT. A limited number of VIP and Platinum VIP packages will be available through satriani.com and vai.com. Doors will be at 7:00 pm with the show set to begin at 8:00 pm.
