Antonio Soncina: Carl Martin FX Guitar Competition - great solo work

Being the background track quite simple (not easy - simple) all is demanded to the lead guitarist to spice it up, so this is was quiet challenging to me. Here it is, I hope You appreciate it :^)

Kostas Karamitroudis: Gus G Seymour Duncan FIRE Blackouts

Gus G. FIRE Blackouts
"This system combines the massive tone, kick, and distortion of Blackouts with the rich tone and expressive feel of my favorite passive pickups. It responds perfectly to all my picking techniques, and more of my personality comes through than with any active pickup I've tried." —Gus G.

Doug Aldrich: Doug's SteamRoller will be touring across Europe this coming September.

Doug Aldrich's SteamRoller ready to flatten Europe!
Doug Aldrich' SteamRoller will be touring across Europe this coming September.

Where hard rock meets electric blues, where guitars are played with gritty fingers, where the hot iron meets the pavement, this is where you’ll find SteamRoller.

After a yearlong world tour promoting the latest release of multi-platinum selling band Whitesnake, guitarist and songwriter Doug Aldrich, bassist and singer Michael Devin and drummer-percussionist extraordinaire Brian Tichy decided to come together and form a homegrown band during Whitesnake’s 2012 hiatus.
Word quickly spread. Crowds gathered to hear the band lay it down during their initial brief run through Europe in early 2012. It comes as little surprise the power trio creates a sound as big as a six piece.

Doug Aldrich spent years rippin’ his guitar alongside metal master Ronnie James Dio before moving on to Whitesnake, where he has co-written the last two albums with legendary frontman David Coverdale. Bassist and singer Michael Devin spent years on the road, playing bass with Kenny Wayne Shepherd and George Lynch, before joining Whitesnake.

As original drummer Brian Tichy was unable to join SteamRoller this time around, due to his involvement with Sass Jordan, monster drummer Matt Starr will join Doug and Michael. Matt sits behind the kit for Ace Frehley and is also one of the talented players in Doug’s band Burning Rain who released their third album on Frontiers earlier this year. SteamRoller celebrates their unique individuality both as musicians and personalities. Their brand of music is raw and full of essential rock spunk.

Now for their European tour which will rock & roll through Austria, Italy, Switzerland, Holland, Northern Ireland and Poland in 2013. Bring it on !

12.9. AUSTRIA – Velden/Bluesiana Rock CafĂ©
14.9. ITALY – Genoa/Angelo Azzuro
