Jordan Rudess: Brazilian Dream Theater fanclub in depth interview

Exclusive interview for the brazilian Dream Theater fanclub, YtseBR (by the fans, for the fans). Brasília, 31/August/2012

Sorry for the sometimes shaky footage (it was worse, trust me). This was all improvised, I didn't have any tripod with me and was really worried about some frigging huge ants not eating me alive. Awesome night though :)

An Evening with Jordan Rudess

Brian May: even the regal sanity of the great one can't save the humble badgers

Sad to find that even with Brian May's sane and rational debate, the badgers lost and the farmers won. I was fortunate to see Brian talking on Bristol's very own College Green.

Alex Skolnick: Planetary Coalition

Go to: & our FB page:

An ethnically flavored collective of diverse musicians from all over the world, Planetary Coalition is driven by the acoustic guitar of Alex Skolnick, whose work spans jazz (Alex Skolnick Trio), metal (Testament), and world music (Rodrigo y Gabriela).

Through the universal language of music, Planetary Coalition intends to bridge the gap between different cultures, increase ecological awareness and explore the threads that connect musical expression with regional identity.

Marcel Scherepenzeel: Oosterout Blues 2012

Classy finale by Marcel Scherpenzeel and Wolfpin, when the band played at the Oosterhout Blues festival on Friday September 7th, 2012. The show was provisionally the last gig in the current line up, as Marcel is now committed to playing with international group 'Band of Friends', performing together with Gerry McEvoy and Ted Mc Kenna, musicians from the original Rory Gallagher band line up.

Marcel Scherpenzeel - guitar, vocals
Maarten Witsel - drums
Henk Schutten - bass

From the Wolfpin website:
Marcel Scherpenzeel was born in Amsterdam. He started to play drums when he was 10 years old. When he was 12, Marcel got a guitar from his older brother, and from that point Marcel takes off. He listened to a lot of great records his Dad had, like John Lee Hooker, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Rory Gallagher, Jimi Hendrix and many others. When he was 21 years old he started singing and messing around with rock, texas-blues, pop, soul and rock and roll. Marcel has played with: Gerry McAvoy & Brendan O'neill (Rory Gallagher Band - IE) Dave Gonzales (The Paladins - USA), Ron Hacker (USA), Tineke Schoenmaker (NL), The Juke Joints (NL), The Marble Tones (NL), The Hoax (UK) and more. Marcel performed on big festivals like: Jimi Hendrix Revival Festival (Germany), Enniscorthy Blues Festival (Ireland), Open Air Am Bergen (Germany), Harley Davidson Super Rally (Belgium), Paaspop (NL), Bospop (NL) and more. WOLFPIN can also be booked as a Rory Gallagher tribute.

About Band of Friends: The Band Of Friends is not a tribute to Rory Gallagher, more of a celebration of his life and music. Rory's music reached a massive audience, covering all parts of the globe and producing some of the greatest rock/blues albums of the 60's, 70's and the 80's. Gerry McAvoy's Band Of Friends is the closest lineup to the original band. Gerry McAvoy played bass guitar with Rory for 20 years; from 1971 to 1991 and Ted McKenna (drums) played with Rory from 1977 to 1981. The lineup is completed with Marcel Scherpenzeel (guitar) who Gerry is quoted as saying 'This is the closest guitarist to Rory you will ever hear'; fine praise indeed.

Jason Becker: Not Dead Yet UK release date and review

At the outset of Not Dead Yet, Vile presents us with what appears to be family footage of Becker and a friend, jamming a fun version of The Byrds' Mr. Tambourine Man on guitar which is then cut abruptly to footage of the man shredding riffs on a stage. This drastic change speaks volumes about the nature of the man and the abruptness of the transformations that have taken place in his life, whilst also managing to highlight the style of filmmaking chosen by Vile. In addition, he manages to tell the story of Becker's life with an undercurrent of the same optimism as its subject, and for that reason the film has a genuinely uplifting feel, regardless of the sad events it documents.

Vile ensures that Becker's true personality comes through in the film, allowing for funny anecdotes from friends and fellow musicians, and even leaving-in some of the hilarious banter that takes place between him and his father. With Jason Becker: Not Dead Yet, Vile delivers an account of his subject's disease, whilst devoting more time to documenting the amazing story of Becker and the loved ones around him.

Jason Becker: Not Dead Yet is released in UK cinemas on 16 November 2012.
