Lorenzo Venza: stunning tribute to the late Jeff Buckley

Lorenzo Venza- Lover,You Should've Have Come Over(Buckley)
One of my favorite tune ever...enjoy it.
Thank you Jeff.
Jeff Buckley
On the evening of May 29, 1997, Buckley's band flew to Memphis intending to join him in his studio there to work on the newly written material. That same evening, Buckley went swimming in Wolf River Harbor, a slackwater channel of the Mississippi River, while wearing boots, all of his clothing, and singing the chorus of the song "Whole Lotta Love" by Led Zeppelin. Buckley had gone swimming there several times before. A roadie in Buckley's band, Keith Foti, remained on shore. After moving a radio and guitar out of reach of the wake from a passing tugboat, Foti looked up to see that Buckley had vanished. Despite a determined rescue effort that night, Buckley remained missing. On June 4, two locals spotted his body in the Mississippi River near a riverboat, and it was brought to land.
Buckley's autopsy showed no signs of drugs or alcohol in his system and the death was ruled as an accidental drowning. The following statement was released from the Buckley estate:
Jeff Buckley's death was not "mysterious," related to drugs, alcohol, or suicide. We have a police report, a medical examiner's report, and an eye witness to prove that it was an accidental drowning, and that Mr. Buckley was in a good frame of mind prior to the accident.

Martin Miller: talks about his Ego Electronic signature pedal

Martin Miller
These babies from Ego Electronic should be here anytime soon. In the meantime let me share some details on my signature pedal (the one in the middle). More info plus web page will be revealed soon.

"This monster is designed for guitarists like Martin Miller, who love real tube amp sound and need versatile tone to cover anything from jazz to metal.

This pedal has 2 subminiature tubes inside and 3 channels: clean, crunch and lead.

Clean channel combines 2 sound ideas: Vox and Dumble! Martin loves Vox cleans, but I know Vox type tone controls are not suitable for a pedal, so I REDESIGNED the tone stack part to a Dumble-like one.

CRUNCH tone is based on a Landau lead tone - open, detailed and dynamic tube overdrive tone, no matter whether you're a fan of single coils or humbuckers, if you love classic Marshall tone, this crunch channel will be your favorite!

LEAD channel : I designed this channel for a high gain lead sound, but you can find a great modern rhythm tone, just like a modern high gain all tubes amplifier. Some of these modern tube amplifiers are not good in conjunction with single coil pickups, but this channel is not one of them. It's goal is a tight, focused and non-compressed tone."

Joe Satriani,Jon Bloomer: Mr Guitarnoize gives the new Satch album a strong positive.

Jon Bloomer: I have bought almost every album Joe Satriani has ever released, yes I'm a bit of a fanboy and have been since I picked up the guitar back in 1988 so I'm trying to be as objective about this review as possible. In answer to the question is this his best work in years, I would say it is as good as other albums he has released in recent years but I actually preferred Black Swans and Wormhole Wizards overall as an album as I felt it had stronger and more memorable tracks. This album definitely gets better with each listen and grows on you but it didn't have the same blown away factor that I had with Black Swans and Wormhole Wizards where I love every track from start to finish.
