Bruce Brucato: Gamalon and Buffalo Hall of Fame guitarist passes away. RIP



RIP Bruce Brucato

It was with great sadness I learned today of the passing of Bruce Brucato, guitarist with Buffalo NY area fusion group Gamalon. Releasing a string of albums with them in the late 1980's into the 90's, he was known for his clean chording, volume swell technique and incredible soloing on the albums "Gamalon", "Ariel View", "Held to the light", "High Contrast" as well as "Project activation earth" with sax player Ernie Watts. I saw Gamalon over 200 times (really) and loved every note the guy played. After a succession of line up changes the band ceased in the 00's, but he was a constant member contributing playing and writing skills throughout their existence. They performed a reunion gig in December of 2012 that had one of the largest capacity clubs in the WNY area packed to the rafters. RIP Bruce Brucato



Nori Bucci
Lost my best friend in the whole world today. Bruce Brucato was a great musician and a kind, loving human being. He made everyone laugh and was the most giving person I'd ever known. He will be so sorely missed by all. Your thoughts and prayers are so very appreciated.

Nori Bucci,Bruce Brucato: live acoustic performance - scintillating stuff!



Dug these up from my video archive while reflecting on the passing the late great Bruce Brucato. I believe this was 06 but might have been 07. I don't remember.
I experimented with the audio, cleaned up the crowd noise, and there was no lighting at this place, so did what i could.

Lita is a founding member of The Runaways, one of the first girl groups who unexpectedly broke down barriers in the punk era as well as the male dominated world of rock music, causing a stir with their six rebellious releases.

Following the demise of The Runaways, Lita Ford concentrated on her own career and now looks back on many memorable hits including: the chart topping duet with Ozzy Osbourne” Close Your Eyes Forever”, “What Do You Know About Love”, “Shot Of Poison”, “Larger Than Life”, “Gotta Let Go” and “Kiss Me Deadly”. With the June 2012 release ofLiving Like a Runaway, expect many more songs to be added to her list of hits.

Michael Kelly Guitars Unveil New Guitar Tribute 50's
HEBRON, KY – Michael Kelly Guitars announces the new 1950’s Series line of single cut guitars. The new body shape will debut this January at NAMM and will be available in five distinct models. Following their unique “Boutique Within Reach” approach of producing instruments, Michael Kelly Guitars builds with the features, fit, finish and playability of those respected high end, low quantity builders but at key price points critical to a dealer’s success and obtainable to the masses.

The electric guitar dramatically changed the world of popular music during the 50’s and this new line pays tribute. The 1950’s Series offers features and sonic capabilities of those memorable sounds but with modern day appointments and production techniques. All five models feature an exotic wood top and contoured arm cut, master volume and master tone controls, a three way pickup selector, and coil taps for sonic range and versatility.

The highlight of the series is the 1955. Besides being one of the first guitars under $1000 to have real flamed maple body binding, the guitar offers the unique pickup configuration with a Rockfield humbucker in the bridge and mini humbucker in the neck position. The swamp ash body with quilted maple top includes a white pickguard and chrome hardware. The maple neck features a six inline headstock and a compound 10.5” to 16.5” radius. Black wash and amber translucent finishes come with a maple fretboard and the caramel burst finish comes with a rosewood fretboard.

The 1952 is a basswood body with flamed maple top outfitted with dual humbuckers, chrome hardware, white body binding and no pickguard. The maple neck features a six inline headstock and 12” radius, maple fretboard. Available finishes are deep cherry red and natural gloss.

The 1953 is an alder body with flamed maple top outfitted with a stacked single coil pickup in the bridge and a tele-style pickup in the neck position, chrome hardware, alder body binding and a white pearl pickguard. The maple neck features a six inline headstock and 10.5” radius. The caramel burst and black vapor finishes come with a rosewood fretboard while the blue jean wash finish comes with a maple fretboard.

The 1954 is an alder body with quilted maple top outfitted with a Rockfield SWC humbucker in the bridge and tele-style pickup in the neck position, black hardware, white body binding and no pickguard. The maple neck features a six inline headstock and 10.5” to 16.5” compound radius, rosewood fretboard.

The flagship is the 1957. This guitar is also one of the first under $1000 to have real flamed maple body binding. The swamp ash body is topped with a quilted maple top, chrome hardware and a white pearl pickguard housing a Seymour Duncan Little ’59 in the bridge and a Rockfield humbucker in the neck position. The maple neck features a six inline headstock, a 10.5” radius and maple fretboard. Available finishes are black wash and amber translucent.
