John Petrucci: live seens from New York

As the United States pays tribute to those who were lost and injured on Sept. 11, 2001, the country also remembers what it was doing that clear morning when it learned the World Trade Center had been attacked. Daily routines were suddenly, shockingly halted as the news spread. Parents pulled their children from schools, and educational facilities closed early because of the day’s uncertainly. Planned commutes into Manhattan were aborted when bridges and tunnels were shut down.

It was no different for the music industry, especially with New York being one of its meccas. Sept. 11 fell on a Tuesday that year, the day that albums are traditionally released. Normally the community would be abuzz with promo activities like last-minute interviews and release parties. Now, news of which titles debuted that day and who was outselling who was practically forgotten.

Despite the chaos that was unfolding, rock band Dream Theater couldn’t ignore the fact that its record “Live Scenes From New York” hit the streets that day. That’s because, in an almost unbelievable coincidence, the artwork on the album’s cover contained a picture of the Twin Towers. And they were on fire.

“We wanted to illustrate New York, so we had the iconic World Trade Center,” Dream Theater guitarist John Petrucci says of the concept behind the album cover, “and another thing we’d used in the past, starting from [our album "Images and Words"]; it’s the heart with the fire.” more


Alex Skolnick: relives 9 11.. like me... Everyone figured it must be a small private plane...

As I trudged up the streets of Manhattan away from the two spheres of smoke, black serpents in the sky, I saw scores of fellow New Yorkers filing out of buildings like one of those school fire drills from my youth. But this was no drill, this was real. We were all grown up now.

It was a fluke that I’d even been downtown. Jury Duty: 8:30am, Tuesday, September 11, 2001.

On the tenth floor of the Lower Manhattan courthouse, while watching an orientation film for prospective jurors, we’d heard a distant explosion. The rumble lasted a little too long.

A few among us had been disinterestedly ignoring the film. Like naughty schoolkids, they’d been listening to their portable radios with headphones, hoping not to get caught. These disobedient fellow jurors suddenly became ministers of information, whispering to those seated next to them that New York’s morning radio shows were being interrupted by breaking news. Soon, quiet murmurs had spread throughout the courtroom: a plane had crashed into World Trade Center.

Everyone figured it must be a small private plane... more

Stephan Forte: Adagio's finest joins Jason Becker stunning line up

Stephan Forte: Adagio http://www.adagio-online.com/ has been added to the bill for Jason Becker in Amsterdam. The stunning Frenchman is in the process of releasing his long awaited CD feature state of the art guitar and guest appearances from other players attending the gig. "De Praestigiis Daemonum", Forté said, "This is probably the most shredding song of the album. I guess it is not the easiest one to listen to, but since it's the very first song we're offering to the guitar fans, I wanted to give them an 'in-your-face' kinda track. This is also a song I've made as a tribute for Jason Becker. He is one of my biggest guitar influences ever and it's been a while since I wanted to do it, so I am very glad to share this track with you guys!"

"The Shadows Compendium" features several other guests, such as Jeff Loomis, Glen Drover, Daniele Gottardo and Derek Taylor.

Bill Lubera: "Global Warning" review

Review of Bill Lubera "Global Warning"

by Ben Kuzay

I just got done listening to Bill Lubera "Global Warning" and I am very impressed! Intricate compositions that are woven together in a very tasteful way; dominant and multiple guitars in each song (except the last one, which is a string quartet piece); and, very noticeably, a theme throughout- which is VERY uncommon in the instrumental genre.

Every track on this cd is the name of a weather catastrophe or natural extremity. Sound effects combine with the music to take you on a ride through all of the horror that Nature has to offer. You get no "Sunshine" or "Pleasant Rain" on this cd. Instead you get track names like "Hurricane", "Tornado", and "Icebergs". When I was over at his house, Lubera made several mentions of the weather calamities that residents of my state (Wisconsin) are faced with on a regular basis. He shuddered at the thought of our weather predicaments. The sincerity of this album is evident in (among other things) the fact that the album's theme is one which he expresses through dialogues in his daily life, as well. The message he preaches is one of warning: Natural calamities are coming our way, and we'd best beware and take precautions. A mad composer, obsessed? Or a musical prophet attempting to illuminate the world with true wisdom?

Progressive from the very beginning, this cd holds no bars in the area of composition. Lubera did not put in any "filler" tracks; nor did he attempt to lower the quality of his product to make it more mass-marketable. Instead, he created an album that will only appeal to the elite listener- the connoisseur of progressive music. Changes in time signature, and the use of extremely odd time signatures are some of the hallmarks of "Global Warning". I had the treat of hearing a few segments of a purely classical-metal flavor, as well. All-in-all, diversity in style- both of playing and of genre- run rampant throughout this work.

Produced by George Bellas, the sound-quality is excellent. Bellas also created the album art and design, which look great and are a very fitting visual accompaniment to the music. Is Bill Lubera the new force in progressive instrumental music? Some say it is so.

Wilko Johnson: former Dr. Feelgood guitarist announces UK tour

Wilko Johnson, guitarist and founding member of Dr. Feelgood, who has influenced everyone from Joe Strummer, Mick Jones to Steve Albini, starts his nationwide UK tour at the Edinburgh Caves on Thursday September 15th. Johnson will be accompanied by Norman Watt-Roy (bass), and Dylan Howe (drums). Special guest is award-winning blues guitarist/singer Ian Siegal. 24 Hour Box Office: 0871 230 1101, www.seetickets.com.

In 1971, Wilko first made his name when he formed Dr. Feelgood; a British pub rock band from Canvey Island, Essex. Known for their electrifying concerts, their first two albums, Down by the Jetty (1974) and Malpractice (1975), were immensely popular. In 1976, their live album, Stupidity went to No.1 in the UK’s official album chart. By the time Dr. Feelgood released their fourth album, Sneakin’ Suspicion (1977), Johnson left the group and to pursue a solo career, and joined Ian Dury and the Blockheads in 1980.

In 2009, Johnson starred in Julien Temple’s “Oil City Confidential,” a feature film documentary about Dr. Feelgood, and recently starred in HBO's fantasy TV series “Game of Thrones.”
