Michael Angelo Batio: Hands Without Shadows - A Tribute to Rock Guitar

Michael Angelo Batio's "Hands Without Shadow's - A Tribute to Rock Guitar" show is a multimedia extravaganza featuring the music of some of the greatest rock guitarists of the past 50 years.

Guitar legend and virtuoso Michael Angelo Batio takes you on his 90 minute auditory and visual journey to the different eras of rock music while playing guitars with incredible speed and musical precision. Michael begins by first playing guitar right handed, then left handed, then playing two guitars at the same time on his Double-Guitar and ending the show by performing on a four necked, mechanized, laser equipped, "Quad" guitar. This chronological tribute features Michael's incredible arrangements and medley's from the different eras of rock beginning with Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton, then moving on to Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, Metallica and more.

The "Hands Without Shadow's - A Tribute to Rock Guitar" show entails an awesome display of guitar wizardry, supported by Emmy award winning drummer Gregg Potter, singer Warren Dunlevy, Jr. who can literally change the sound of his voice to match any of the singers from the various era's plus Ryan Johnson, an equally talented bass guitarist/vocalist.

The show is a multi-media experience complete with multiple video screens, lasers, incredible lighting, on stage theatrics and of course the amazing guitar work of the "#1 Shredder of all time" (Guitar One Magazine) Michael Angelo Batio. You will be introduced to Michael's "MAB over -- under" the neck technique, his Double-Guitar as well as his four necked "Quad" guitar. (Michael invented the Double-Guitar as well as the Quad Guitar and is credited with being the first person ever to play both left and right handed at the same time!)

The excitement of the show stays with you long after the performance is through. It is hard to envelope it all at one single show with all of the activity that is happening onstage. You will need to come back more than once just to believe that someone can play as well and as fast as Michael does, not to mention the other equally talented musicians who are on stage.

Tom Morello: The Gibson Interview

Tom Morello: The Gibson Interview
Is it true that a talent show at a homeless shelter helped inspire The Nightwatchman project?

Yes. That was very impactful in the sense of pushing me out of the nest, and making me want to do more than just strum around the fireplace at home. It was a Thanksgiving event at a teen homeless shelter called Covenant House, in Hollywood. Each year they have a talent show and a dinner, and I would go there and emcee. There was a 19-year-old kid there who was really down and out, with a troubled past and a potentially troubled future. He didn’t have a great voice, but he stepped up to the mic and sang as if the soul of everyone in the room was at stake. He obviously just thought, “I’ve got some ideas in my head, and I can put three or four chords together.” What he was doing felt important in a way that a lot of music on the radio doesn’t. I thought, “Man, I really want to get involved in something like that.” It made me want to go out and do this in front of people. more

Mike Orlando, Mike Portnoy: Adrenaline Mob tour and EP release details


Band To Hit The Road on First Ever Tour Starting August 14th

Also Opening for Godsmack on Select Tour Stops

The hard rock music genre is finally getting a long overdue injection of aggression when Adrenaline Mob releases their self-titled debut EP on August 9th. The EP will available via iTunes as well as sold in physical form at the band’s upcoming shows and online store. Self-produced by the band, Adrenaline Mob features 4 original tracks as well as a blistering cover of the Dio-era Black Sabbath classic, “The Mob Rules.” From the opening riff of “Psychosane” through the over 6 minute epic sounding “Hit The Wall,” it is clear that Adrenaline Mob are in class all their own as musicians.

"Releasing the EP gives fans around the world a chance to get a taste of the Mob NOW without having to wait until the full length album comes out at the beginning of next year,” states Portnoy.

Comprised of some of rock music’s most notable faces and names, one thing Adrenaline Mob is not is a side project. The band is made up of the powerful and soaring vocals of Russell Allen, the shredding guitar attack of Mike Orlando and the rock solid rhythm playing of Rich Ward, the driving bass groove of Paul DiLeo and the legendary drumming of Mike Portnoy.

Hot on the heels of the release of Adrenaline Mob, the band will be heading out on their first ever headline tour on August 14th, which runs through mid-September. The tour kicks off in Allentown, PA and will be making stops in various markets including Chicago, Denver and San Francisco to name a few. A live video of the band performing “The Mob Rules” from their debut live show can be viewed here and is approaching 120,000 views since it was put up a month ago. The band has also been tapped to open for Godsmack on select dates of their upcoming tour.

Adrenaline Mob formed in 2011 when Orlando approached Allen with some song ideas. Allen and Orlando refined those ideas at which time Allen reached out to long-time friend Portnoy to see if he had any interest in playing with them. Portnoy jumped on-board and soon thereafter, DiLeo and Ward were recruited to join the family. From the very first note, the chemistry was apparent and the beast that is known as Adrenaline Mob was born.

A full-length release is planned for 2012.

Plus an interview with Bob K
Are you glad now to some extent that he is back and you can finally support the album the way you would have if he hadn’t been working with Ozzy?

Yes we are and the main tour starts here in the UK on September 9th in London I think, I’m not too sure where it starts but we do four dates with one in Glasgow which you better be at! [Laughs] In Firewind we consider, this is true by the way, not interview shit, we consider the UK as our second home. We’ve played here a lot of times and we always have a great time when we are here with our family and fans. For us it is really special when we do shows like this because it is not like going to any other country, the market is different but it still holds something really special to us. Hopefully starting here in the UK will lift us for the European leg of the tour. more
