News: Summer NAMM guitar player wrap up for day one!

Traveling to Nashville from the San Francisco Bay Area for the summer gear extravaganza can be a bit of a slog — stopovers, late flights, connections, etc. -- but I never expected to get a "severe weather alert" text, as soon as I stepped off the plane in Music City, warning me that flash floods were possible. Odd. I understood as soon as my taxi left the airport's covered lot because a barrage of merciless rain slammed against the SUV. Even the 3.5 seconds it took me to open the taxi door and dash under the hotel's front canopy left me soaked. Twenty minutes later, all was dry. Strange weather this year.

George Marios: adds a special Sofia and gets Peppermint!

Hi guys,

Peppermint here!  We've uploaded a little promo of the material we've been working on.  Make sure to 'like' our facebook page and get in touch if you want us to play in your local bar,event or any other occasion. Thank for watching, Sofia and George (aka Peppermint)
" ...hits with a twist"

Peppermint's journey began in November 2012, with a little help from a thing called the internet...
George came across a recording of Sofia's work, through an email sent by a producer they were both working with at the time. Blown away by Sofia's powerful yet soulful vocal performances,George got in touch with her straight away in order to form an acoustic duo.
After an afternoon of music banter and ham sandwiches they decided to take over the world…or for now, just London…by spicing up well known songs. Into a couple of rehearsals, Peppermint started to shape their funky sound full of vocal harmonies and groove-tastic Guitar chops.
Peppermint are currently gigging all around London and, if you are lucky, you can catch them busking in Camden whenever the sun is out….
If you would like to have Peppermint play at your House, Bar, Pool, Theatre, Arena or any other event just drop them an email -

"Amazingly brilliant and complex work...A progressive rock masterpiece!"

Hemispheres is the sixth studio album by Rush. In many ways, it was the final album in a major chapter of Rush's career. The 1978 release was their last release of the '70s and their last LP that's unambiguously prog. Hemispheres was also the final album in Rush's grandiose period, which included "2112" and "A Farewell To Kings." Hemispheres has a brilliant concept to it, the brain hemispheres, reason and emotion, its complicated and smart - the music here is simply incredible, not your typical rock band and totally Rush.

Vinnie Vincent: Heat - Vinnie Cusano in West Coast fusion mode in 1981

Heat -- an early '80s West Coast R&B/rock/fusion collective led by bandleader/principal songwriter Tom Saviano -- are set to release "Heat Revisited" in Japan on July 17. In advance of the release, KissFAQ has the exclusive online premiere for "What Does it Take," an infectious up-tempo rock shuffle dusted off from the Heat vaults. Recorded circa 1981, the track features lead guitar by a then-young hotshot guitarist named Vinnie Cusano, who would later be rechristened Vinnie Vincent in KISS.

Listen to the track HERE

"I thought [Vinnie] played real melodic on this track," says Saviano. "He played like a studio musician."

Lorenzo Favero: Hyoshi - whole guitar precussion for this hands' clapping style song

Lorenzo Favero - Hyoshi
Original tune by Lorenzo Favero.
Hyoshi is a japanese ideogram: it literally means "hands' clapping", but it is used to indicate " rhythm" in a lot of different meanings: the rhythm of the seasons, of heart, of waves, the alternation of day and night, the rhythm of music. Everything and everyone has got his own inner vibration, and if we listen carrefully we can hear Hyoshi everywhere.
