Chris Bullen, Sam Coulson: Interstellar Groove Machine new cd and jamm time

Chris Bullen
Learning the guitar is an ongoing study for Chris. He continues to try new processes and look for ways to break with traditions. I am a perpetual learner and love to analyze what makes things work.

It became apparent early on that Chris had something special when at a very early age Chris began winning numerous guitar competitions. To this day he proudly still uses the guitars he won along the way.

Chris quickly earned the reputation of being one of the areas most notable players and gained the respect of players nationwide. Although Chris loved the guitar, he felt that there was more he wanted to do. He looked to computer graphics and stepped out of the music scene to pursue another passion. Chris went back to school to get his degree in pure and applied mathematics and applied his knowledge to develop cutting edge visualizations for architects and developers worldwide. Life experiences and the love of music and the arts lead Chris back to the instrument he was so devoted to long ago, but this time with a new perspective.

After his long hiatus, Chris Bullen is now venturing back into music as an instrumental rock performer, he wishes for what all musicians' desire, for those who listen to enjoy what they're hearing. ''It is important to me to create music that can be enjoyed at all levels, from those who do not play any instruments through to those who are well accomplished''. ''Music is a gift that is all around us, and a great gift can bring a lifetime of enjoyment. I can only hope that there are others who connect with, and enjoy what I've created. It's with a humble heart that I offer my gift of music to anyone who will listen''.

Tom Quayle, Rick Graham: luke luck likes lakes

I'm here at Rick's doing some recording and jamming. We just set the camera rolling and played for a few hours. Here's a few choruses of Lakes by Pat Metheny with some cool moments and many screw ups but it was loads of fun! It's incredible how Rick tackles these crazy changes after only seeing them for the first time a couple of weeks ago! Thanks for listening,

I'm playing my Suhr Standard into Rick's Splawn clean channel and Rick is using a POD XT Live with his Suhr Modern.

News: Dream Weaver's 'Gary Wright' on tour with 'Ringo Starr's All Starr Band'

Gary Wright, known by millions for his internationally acclaimed singles ‘Dream Weaver’ and ‘Love Is Alive’, will perform with ‘Ringo Starr and His All Starr Band’ on an extensive 27-date European tour from June 4-17th. This will mark the third time Wright will tour with Ringo’s All Starr Band (following tours in 2008 and 2010).
This year marks the 35th anniversary of Wright’s multi-million selling album ‘The Dream Weaver’. When the album was originally released in 1976, and the single ‘Dream Weaver’ became a huge success, Wright toured extensively with Yes, Fleetwood Mac and was special guest on Peter Frampton’s ‘Frampton Comes Alive!’ tour.
Now, with the release of his first album in 20 years, ‘Connected’, Wright showcases a breath-taking collection of songs that capture the joyous magical transcendence of his all-time classic hits. The single ‘Satisfied’ includes performances from Ringo Starr (drums), Joe Walsh (lead guitar), and Jeff “Skunk” Baxter (rhythm guitar).
Former lead singer of the British progressive blues rock band Spooky Tooth (1967-1974), American born Wright embarked on a solo career in 1975. He was one of the first classic rock musicians to combine synthesizers with rock and funk. Gary’s music has inspired generations of musicians including Jay-Z, Eminem, Mya, Salt-N-Pepa, Busta Rhymes, and Anastacia.
The UK leg of Ringo Starr and His All Starr Band’s UK tour includes Hampton Court (June 17), Liverpool Empire (June 18), Birmingham Symphony Hall (June 20), Manchester Opera House (June 22), Glasgow Clyde Auditorium (June 23) and Bournemouth BIC (June 24). The All Starr Band features Rick Derringer (guitar), Richard Page (bass), Wally Palmar (guitar, harmonica), Edgar Winter (sax, keyboards), Gary Wright (keyboards) and Gregg Bissonette (drums).
