Abby Clutario,Mico Ong: Fuseboxx stick.com interview

Abby Clutario of Fuseboxx

Fuseboxx is a 4-piece Pinoy (Filipino) Progressive Rock Band formed in 2001.
Their existence became an inspiration that opened the doors to progressive music in the Philippines.

Members:

Abby Clutario - vocals/Chapman Stick/Keyboards
Mico Ong - 6 and 7 String guitars
Eric Tubon - synthesizers/Keyboards/Keytar
Les Banzuelo - Drums


A musical pioneer on so many levels, Stickist/vocalist/keyboardist Abby Clutario fronts the powerful Filipino progressive rock band Fuseboxx.

feature and interview by Greg Howard

There aren't many progressive rock bands in The Phillipines, nor are there many prog bands in the world that are fronted by a woman vocalist (singing in Filipino and English at that). And though the number of women playing The Stick continues to rise, they are still a definite minority.

Novelties are not what you'll notice about this band, but rather their unique sound and powerful performances. It's great to hear a compelling vocalist, weaving her own bass and melody lines into such a lush and layered sound. Fuseboxx's chemistry is undeniable. Though Abby's move to The Stick is fairly recent, her visual and sonic presence with the instrument is as natural any veteran player's.

Fuseboxx has just launched their second release, ANIMATED, to enthusiastic reviews and fan reaction. I was able to chat via Facebook with the Abby about her new role in the band and future plans with The Stick. more : http://www.stick.com/features/artist/

Michael Dolce,Levi Clay: Live4Guitar in depth interview


I’m still trying to digest the beauty of the first one! So let’s talk guitars and gear, you’re holding a Mustang on the cover of the album, but you’re rarely seen without one of your teles – how long have you been a tele man?

The tele was never my thing, I was always into Strats and I have some PRS style guitars. I never thought I would play them, but I have a friend who built this tele, he called me up and said “you have to try this one out!” and I was like “no, I don’t like teles at all, no chance..” but he kept at it and eventually I took it home to play for a few days and that was it. It has a beautiful maple neck that just brings out this whole percussive nature to the sound. It sounds like I’m hybrid picking when I’m not, so acoustically this guitar is just the way forward for me. Now I struggle to play any guitar with a middle pickup, I had one on another tele so I could get the strat tones, but it’s coming out!

Plus the tele isn’t all that common in fusion!

Yeah, I love that I play a tele because everyone seems to play the strat style guitars, teles are so understated. People see it and expect me to be a country player, but I’m not! (laughs) more

Kostas Karamitroudis: Gus G Guitar Master - 2010 Remaster



Gus G is the new guitarist for OZZY and is the driving force behind his incredible power metal act FIREWIND!! Gus has played in MYSTIC PROPHECY, NIGHTRAGE, ARCH ENEMY and DREAM EVIL. Gus is one of the brightest hopes to keep shred guitar alive in the years to come.

This Cd is the 2010 Remastered version of the original Guitar Masters. This version is much better sonically and is highly recommended. This is the only full instrumental Cd that Gus has recorded to this point in time. This Cd was originally recorded in the early 2000s and shows Gus' amazing technical and melodic playing. There is no Cd available with more Gus G solos than this one!

Gus G, along with many other top notch guitarists all recorded Cds that start out with the same bass and drum tracks. Then each guitarist lays down his own unique and original guitar tracks over the bass and drums. No player hears the other tracks before they have finished with their own Cd. Each player has his own Guitar Masters Cd. It really is an eye opener to hear how each player attacks these tracks.

John Hahn: working on new CD


A chance to pick up some earlier material: John Hahn, "Mind Games" - John Hahn, along with many other top notch guitarists have all recorded Cds that start out with the same bass and drum tracks. Then each guitarist lays down his own unique and original guitar tracks over the bass and drums. No player hears the other tracks before they have finished with their own Cd. Each player has his own Guitar Masters Cd as well as compilation Cds that has each player playing against the same tracks. It really is an eye opener to hear how each player attacks these tracks. buy

This CD, like its predecessor features John’s unique guitar voice and approach as he attacks the tracks; from tasteful melodic passages to blazing high-speed shred combining structure, freeform jamming and elegant modal phrasings, he tears up each track

Plus John is working on a new release

John Hahn:
I am thrilled to announce that all tracking, mixing and mastering has been completed for my next instrumental CD titled "Darkness Falls". I'm shooting for a mid 2011 release. The vibe of this CD is a bit darker, heavier, and more progressive and than my previous releases with tons of guitar. I've managed to capture some of my best tones and performances on this release. This disc nails all the characteristics that I look for and love to hear in an instrumental guitar release and was lots of fun to write and record.

David T Chastain: "Civilized Warfare" new CD

Guitarist DAVID T. CHASTAIN's 2011 new all instrumental release, Civilized Warfare has just been released via Diginet Music.



David T. Chastain's 2011 all instrumental release "Civilized Warfare" showcases David's varying influences and styles. While "Heavy" it is still full of "Emotional intensity" and terrifying technique. This release is not instrumental "noodlings" but it is based around actual song frameworks. In last 5 years David's music has been used in literally 100s if not 1000s of TV shows and films and this work is geared towards his "Metal In TV" ideology. David states: "While I never sat out to provide music for TV and Films I have found that they can take my music and use it very easily in a wide range of shows from Oprah to the NFL Network and everything in between. While no one is necessarily getting rich from it, there is gratification in hearing your music on TV! I would classify this as more of a Hard Rock release than a straight ahead metal recording. I hear some 80s in this one!" Mike Haid once again provides a strong foundation with his drumming and bassist Steven Taylor provides the consistent bass playing that allows David to go to places he might not otherwise venture.
The release is also part of the Diginet Guitar Masters series. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B005998FDQ/leviathanreco-20

Rick Tedesco: 'A Light In The Attic” new cd


New CD Release By Guitarist Rick Tedesco With Special Guest Appearances By Rock Legends Ian Hunter and Dennis Dunaway
8/15/2011 - Westport, CT - Guitarists around the planet are buzzing with excitement about the debut solo CD release by guitar maestro Rick Tedesco titled 'A Light In The Attic”. Known for his guitar and studio work with Rock n Roll Hall of Fame inductee and original Alice Cooper Group founding member Dennis Dunaway's group the Dennis Dunaway Project, as well as Mott the Hoople legend Ian Hunter, Rick Tedesco's new CD promises to deliver a heavy dose of hard driving rock and roll!
“I met Dennis through Ian Hunter actually,” Rick explains. “Ian was helping BDS with their album 'Back From Hell' and Ian pulled me in to help get their sound together. I met Ian years ago while working in a music store and ended up setting up a studio in his house and then started working with him. I have been on every record since 'Rant' in one capacity or another: engineer, producer, background vocals, guitars, piano...comedian.”
“Rick explores the darker recesses of his attic and confronts a lot of honest emotions. And with this moving rock album, he turns the light on for all to see.” Dennis Dunaway, founding member of the Alice Cooper Group
Rick Tedesco began playing guitar in the early 1970s with musical influence's deeply rooted in the Glam Rock movement of that decade; Alice Cooper, David Bowie and Ian Hunter served as early role models. Also the second wave of British rock bands of the '70s were of particular interest to the young musician. As far as guitarists go, Mick Ronson was a huge influence on Rick, as well as Randy Rhodes and Ace Frehley. In the past 15 years Rick Tedesco has played guitar, piano, bass, sang and engineered on Ian Hunter's last several releases. He also played many instruments, sang, produced and engineered the Dennis Dunaway Project's critically acclaimed CD 'Bones From The Yard'. Rick also runs his own successful business www.GuitarHangar.com where he sells vintage and rare musical instruments. “The Guitar Hangar was established in 1999 and we cater to the higher end guitars and amps,” says Rick, “boutique stuff...a collector's paradise as well and really quality stuff for the working musician.”
"Rick and I have been mates for a long time. He's a bit 'heavier' than me in his musical taste and style but we get along great and he's been of significant help to me over the years." - Ian Hunter
And now with Rick Tedesco's debut solo release, the music world will be able to experience his fascinating musical vision “ 'A Light In The Attic' is really a metaphor for looking around in the dark, eerie, questionable areas of the mind and shining a light on them,” Rick explains. “Sexual taboos, obsession, life, love, death, the end of the world etc... it's all there.”
As far as plans for the future, Rick divulges, “I play out with a good friend of mine, Doug Wahlberg, and we are already out there playing songs from the CD. Doug co-wrote a couple songs with me on the CD as well. My studio is always busy... Dennis is always busy... I'm sure at some point we will be busy together again. I'm always doing stuff with Ian...he's in my studio every week it seems. I've already started plotting out my next album and have the first song recorded for it already. I just want to keep going and stay focused on being creative. That's when I'm the happiest.”

Tony Iommi: Sabbath not happening

I'm saddened that a Birmingham journalist whom I trusted has chosen this point in time to take a conversation we had back in June and make it sound like we spoke yesterday about a Black Sabbath reunion.

At the time I was supporting the Home of Metal exhibition and was merely speculating, shooting the breeze, on something all of us get asked constantly, "Are you getting back together?"

Thanks to the internet it's gone round the world as some sort of "official" statement on my part, absolute nonsense. I hope he's enjoyed his moment of glory, he won't have another at my expense.

To my old pals, Ozzy, Geezer and Bill, sorry about this, I should have known better. more

You know that Ozzy Osbourne has made a career out of discovering amazing guitar players and putting them on the map. Is there any artist (Ozzy or otherwise) that you would love to play with?

No kidding. Gus G has such a great gig playing with Ozzy right now. Joining a band that is known for having really good guitarists would be such a dream come true. Ozzy’s had such a slew of awesome guitar players so that would be awesome. There are bands out there that I would love to join. Nevermore would be an awesome band join. Any of “The Big 4” bands would be killer [laughs]. There are even smaller bands who I think would be killer to join. Hell, if Paul Gilbert wants to reunite Racer X I would totally jump on that one [laughs]. http://thegreatsouthernbrainfart.com/?p=7597
