Yngwie Malmsteen: Autobiography - Relentless

Yngwie Malmsteen Autobiography - Relentless
The rock-and-roll memoir of one of the world's greatest guitarists
Yngwie Malmsteen's revolutionary guitar style—combining elements of classical music with the speed and volume of heavy metal—made him a staple of the 80s rock scene. Decades later, he's still a legend among guitarists, having sold 11 million albums and influenced generations of rockers since. In Relentless, Malmsteen shares his personal story, from the moment he burst onto the scene seemingly out of nowhere in the early 80s to become a household name in the annals of heavy metal. Along the way, he talks about his first bands, going solo, his songwriting and recording process, and the seedy side of the rock business.

Craig Goldy: Dio - Scared Heart - 1986

"Finding The Sacred Heart -- Live In Philly 1986" was filmed at The Spectrum in Philadelphia on 17 June 1986 during the second leg of the "Sacred Heart" tour, which featured new guitarist Craig Goldy. The show was issued in an edited form first on VHS and then DVD. Now for the first time the full concert is being released in the original running order, restored from the original 16mm film and with remastered sound. It's an extraordinary live show with a giant animatronic dragon towering over the stage and spectacular lasers and pyrotechnics. Ronnie James Dio is in fine voice as ever and the band deliver a blistering live performance featuring tracks from their first three albums alongside Black Sabbath and Rainbow classics. This will be a must-have release for any Dio fan!

News: Unexpectedly High Demand Prompts GJ2 Guitars To Expand Facilities

Guitar Builder Goes Big: Unexpectedly High Demand Prompts GJ2 Guitars To Expand Facilities

Laguna Hills, CA — Orange County-based guitar maker GJ2 Guitars has expanded its headquarters to meet increased demand by adding a fourth unit, bringing its total space to over 10,000 square feet.

GJ2 added space to its current paint facility building—which now includes assembly, quality control, packing and shipping— to accommodate the need for greater production capacity.

CEO Jon Gold explains the reason GJ2 decided to expand sooner than expected: “Our sales started to escalate dramatically during the fourth quarter of 2012 and we could foresee the need for far higher levels of production. But even with projected increases, the incredible success of our new Glendora model at January’s NAMM Show made the need for additional space greater and more immediate than we could have anticipated. As it turns out, the opportunity to extend our facilities couldn’t have come at a better time.”

About GJ2 Guitars
Founded in 2011 by Grover Jackson (formerly of Jackson Guitars and Jackson/Charvel fame) and Jon Gold (former VP International Sales for Fender), GJ2 Guitars manufactures superior-quality electric guitars from its facility in Laguna Hills, California. The company designs and performs all its own wood-crafting and creates nearly all of its instrument components in-house, including pickups. Only the best woods and materials are used. Great attention is paid to playability, tone, and build quality. Grover Jackson personally oversees the production of each instrument.

For inquiries, including new dealers, please contact Jon Gold at or 949-325-4584. Visit for additional information.

Alan Morse,Ted Leonard: Spock's Beard - new album and tour details

Prog Legends Spock's Beard Film New Video In Support Of Newly Released Album 'Brief Nocturnes And Dreamless Sleep'

Los Angeles, CA - Prog legends Spock's Beard, in support of their newly released and critically acclaimed album, 'Brief Nocturnes And Dreamless Sleep', are filming a video for the track “Submerged.” The three-day shoot is based in Los Angeles, and inside sources say it is a full-on music spectacle! Released on April 2nd, 'Brief Nocturnes And Dreamless Sleep', marks the return of Spock's Beard to the InsideOut Music label, and the two-disc set has been garnering rave reviews from fans and critics alike worldwide.

Founding band member Alan Morse comments about the video: “'Brief Nocturnes And Dreamless Sleep' is a new and exciting direction for us, and when we read the director's treatment for the video, we immediately knew we had found the perfect person to help us bring our musical vision to the screen. It is equal parts performance and concept, and  there will be as many twists and turns in the video as there are in our music. You'll never hear 'Submerged' the same way again.”

In their 20 years together, Spock's Beard have built a reputation for invention, musicality and sheer restive energy. Yet perhaps nothing they have done before can properly prepare you for their 11th studio album. 'Brief Nocturnes And Dreamless Sleep' is an album that will constantly surprise. Featuring the recording debut of long-time tour drummer Jimmy Keegan (Santana), and vocalist/guitarist Ted Leonard (Enchant, Thought Chamber), it also sees the return of a familiar name to the song-writing credits - Neal Morse, who has co-written two tracks, his first since leaving the band more than a decade ago.

Gary Brown of Classic Rock Radio Dot EU raves about Spock's Beard's 'Brief Nocturnes And Dreamless Sleep', “Perfect album from start to of the best hard rock/mainstream prog albums I've heard in a long time!” Ytsejam touts, “In the end, it is the Spock's Beard album we all have been waiting for, as Morse, Meros, Okumoto, Leonard and Keegan have produced another excellent offering of musical mayhem. A true testament to what progressive rock is in the 21st Century and beyond.”

Co-produced by Alan Morse, Rich Mouser and John Boegehold, 'Brief Nocturnes And Dreamless Sleep' is described by Meros as, “quirky, edgy, and reminding us a little bit of older times in the band, but also taking us further forward.” In regards to the song the band is filming the video to, “Submerged”, Dave explains, “Ted had originally written and recorded this for his solo album 'Way Home' (released in 2007), and it's a real stadium rocker. We've adapted it to our own sound but stayed faithful to Ted's original arrangement. I wouldn't say it's strictly Prog Rock, but fits what we do and is a great song.”

Spock's Beard Is:
Alan Morse - guitar, vocals
Dave Meros - bass guitar, vocals, keyboards
Ryo Okumoto - keyboards, vocals
Jimmy Keegan - drums, vocals
Ted Leonard - vocals, guitar

In closing Dave has this to impart about 'Brief Nocturnes & Dreamless Sleep', “I am proud of what we've done. I believe this is the way Spock's Beard should sound in 2013.”

2. I Know Your Secret 7:42
3. A Treasure Abandoned 8:56
4. Submerged 5:00
