Greg Koch: Shreds The New Reverend Pete Anderson Eastsider T NAMM 2013Greg Koch

NAMM 2013 • Greg Koch Shreds The New Reverend Pete Anderson Eastsider T
Coming to you all the way from the Reverend booth at the 2013 Winter NAMM convention -- we bring you the one and only Greg Koch defiling the one and only Pete Anderson Eastsider T!
~ Greg Koch ~
Hailing from the frigid wasteland of northern Wisconsin comes a beast the likes of which the world has never known. Greg Koch, a beast of both persona and guitar-mastery, couples his sickeningly magnetic personality with the guitar to create a style of playing that is both completely unique and deplorable at the same time. As a huge fan of the legendary Big Jim Hendricks Greg has taken all that is good and righteous about blues guitar and warped it into a ridiculously fantastic amalgamation of melodic defilement and mind-blowing creativity. Over the years Greg has shared the stage with everyone from Joe Bonamassa to Les Paul himself, never relenting, never ceasing to bring the ruckus.

News: Amplitude Orange - win a free copy

http://www.ikmultimedia.com/orange for more information - Welcome to the tone orchard of your dreams

Crank back the clock some 45 years to the swinging London music scene of the late 1960s, and you'll find a young Cliff Cooper contemplating the creation of amplification of a different sort — amplification that wouldn't just stand out tonally, but visually, too. Back then, musical instrument amplification was, well, boring, to say the least. Everything looked the same... black. Cliff saw opportunity and decided enough was enough — thus Orange Amplifiers were born.

Flash forward to 2013. AmpliTube Orange® gives you the best of the best of Orange amplifiers and cabinets for your Mac or PC, in a new collection for AmpliTube Custom Shop from the leader in amp and effects modeling, IK Multimedia.

Before the concert in Lantaren Venster in Rotterdam on March 17 2013 we spoke for about half an hour about his career in general, the business side off it, different projects, management, marketing, Mike Stern, Miles, Billy Cobham, teaching, rhythm, harmony, apps, etc.

Joe Satriani: unveils track listing and artwork for new album

Joe Satriani confirms the release of his 14th studio album, “Unstoppable Momentum” in the UK onMonday May 6 (U.S. release is Tuesday May 7) through Epic Records/Sony Music UK.  The album was recorded at Skywalker Sound in San Francisco and was produced by Satriani and Mike Fraser (AC/DC).

Unstoppable Momentum dovetails Satriani’s UK Tour which starts a month later on Saturday 8 June at the Manchester Apollo.

Includes limited edition numbered & signed "Joe's Art 2013" 98-page art book featuring never-before-seen drawings, doodles, & sketches.
"This book represents my first effort to finally compile my oddly drawn friends into one place, a wildly colorful portfolio of sorts. A collection of drawings meant to inspire and entertain." - Joe
This bundle also includes an exclusive T-shirt, a 19x13 poster of exclusive Joe art, the digital album (delivered on release date in 320kbps MP3 format), the Unstoppable Momentum CD & autographed CD booklet, and an early download of a digital single before release date.
special $150 (only 300 available)  http://www.satriani.com/presale/

After returning from the South American G3 Tour in October 2012, Satriani got down to writing new music over the next two months. As he recalls, “A very prolific and cathartic two months followed resulting in a bundle of new music I was very excited to get recorded.”  Click HERE to download the album artwork and read the official web press release.  

Eleven songs were selected to record, all of which were “heading in different directions and touching on a variety of musical influences.”  With that in mind, Satriani assembled a new studio band, including Vinnie Colauita (Sting, Jeff Beck) on drums, Chris Chaney (Janes Addiction) on bass and Mike Keneally (Dethklok) on keyboards. “The idea was to crank up the energy level of the sessions, and allow for more individual expression from each player. The chemistry with Mike, Chris and Vinnie was fantastic and we blazed through the tracks with everyone laying down amazing performances.”

2.       Can’t Go Back
