Jonny Barvo: ViK Saviour 7 String Demo and unboxing

Total randomness. Just testing a few presets and tones on my AXE-FX with beast of a guitar. It really sounds unlike anything I've ever heard. You don't get the full impact through a video camera, but I'll be recording a song with it for sure sometime soon!

Snowy White,Denny Newman: Snow White's Bluesdrivers

Smooth distinctive guitar solo by Snowy White, when he and his Bluesdrivers band performed at the Lakei venue, in Helmond, The Netherlands on Sunday, March 17th, 2013

Among Snowy's achievements, guitarist with Thin Lizzie, Pink Floyd, toured with Roger Waters. From Snowy's website: In 1974 he toured the east coast of America, getting as far south as New Orleans and discovering that he thoroughly enjoyed being 'on the road'. He had by then become friendly with the now legendary English blues guitarist Peter Green and they spent a lot of time jamming together. In 1979 Peter Green decided to head for the studio once more and invited Snowy along to jam. The result was the album entitled 'In the Skies', now something of a collectors item.

Snow White's Bluesdrivers featuring:
Snowy White -- guitar, vocals.
Ruud Weber -- bass, vocals
Denny Newman - guitar, vocals
Jeff Allen - drums

Lalle Larsson: background magazine interview the likable keyboard maestro

A new interview with Swedish keyboard virtuoso Lalle Larsson has been published on the Background Magazine. A short clip of the interview is given below:

What can we expect from you music wise in 2013?
“At the moment I'm writing material for my next solo album written for keyboard, bass and drums. These compositions have a lot of chords and structures that work as vehicles for improvisation. The album will focus a lot on my solo playing. This will be recorded live in the studio to get a real live energy. I don't feel that I have really managed to capture the way I play live on any albums since most of them are recorded with overdubs, so I hope to be able to capture that feeling. I have been practising a couple of hours every day now for two months, so I feel a bit of progress and new ideas are beginning to take shape. Two months ago Richard Hallebeek released his album Pain In The Jazz on which I play all the keyboards. It's a great guitar oriented jazz-fusion album that features players like Sebastiaan Cornelissen, Frans Vollink, Randy Brecker, Greg Howe, Guthrie Govan, Andy Timmons, Eric Gales, José de Castro, Kiko Loureiro and Alex Machacek. It's highly recommended to fusion fans out there. Later this year we will also release a DVD with Karmakanic, a live show that we recorded in 2012 at RosFest, USA, which also features the great drumming of Morgan Ågren. There will also be a DVD with AOM from that same festival; you can probably expect that DVD to be released at the end of 2013. I'm also playing a few guest solos on different albums. So there's some exciting music in the pipeline. As usual I'm open to any kind of projects or tours and studio work if something comes along.”
