Vinnie Moore,Tony MacAlpine: Vinnie donates his Dean VMS Mind’s Eye guitar to be auctioned for the Benefit for Tony

Dreams are made of this
Vinnie Moore has donated his Dean VMS Mind’s Eye guitar to be auctioned for the Benefit for Tony. The guitar’s body features art inspired by Mind’s Eye – Vinnie’s stunning debut album with Shrapnel Records in 1986 (with Tony MacAlpine on keyboards!)

The body is alder, with a bolt-on maple neck. The fingerboard is rosewood and the 12th fret is marked with a pearl “VM Eye” inlay. Special DMT design pickups in an HSS configuration provide plenty of powerful sonic options to explore. Elegant black hardware includes precision Grover tuners and a Floyd Rose 1000 bridge.

Vinnie will sign the backplates for the winning bidder of this guitar!

Vinnie Moore is one of the most influential and important guitarists to emerge from the virtuoso boom in the mid to late eighties. In a 2009 article by Guitar Worldmagazine, his album Mind’s Eye was ranked 3rd on their Top 10 Shred Guitar albums of all time.

Vinnie’s guitar will be auctioned on Ebay beginning December 12, 2015 Pacific Time and ending on December 19. Check back soon for a link to the auction.

Vinnie is on tour with UFO supporting Judas Priest at the moment:

Vivian Campbell: Last In Line - Devil In Me - featuring original members of DIO

On Friday 19th February, Frontiers Music SRL will release one of the most highly anticipated Hard Rock releases of 2016 - the debut album from LAST IN LINE, "Heavy Crown".

Formed by three original members of DIO including Def Leppard’s Vivian Campbell (guitar) Vinny Appice (drums) and Jimmy Bain (bass) and named after DIO’s 1984 studio album "The Last In Line", the new band are on a mission to bring classic Hard Rock to fans who can’t get enough of the real thing. The album will be released on CD, CD/DVD (including a bonus track) and Digital formats. Pre-orders can be made HERE.

First single, Devil In Me was premiered on Planet Rock (UK) and SiriusXM (U.S.) on Monday, November 16th and today, November 17th, the official music video for the track is now available for

Says guitarist Vivian Campbell, "When we started this project a few years ago, the initial idea was to reunite the original Dio band to play the songs we wrote and recorded with Ronnie in the early 1980’s. Joined by Andrew Freeman on vocals, we played a handful of shows in southern California, the UK, and Japan. It was a limited ambition, but it brought us great joy in reconnecting to this great music, to each other, and to our collective history."

The new songs featured on the debut Last In Line album are all co-written by the four band members.

"When we first got together as the Last In Line line-up, our ambition at that time didn’t extend to writing and recording any new music, says Campbell, "but when we were offered the opportunity to do so by Frontiers, we decided to enter the studio to write this new album in the very same spirit as we did theHoly Diver album; Back in 1982 Ronnie, Vinny, Jimmy and I went into Sound City studios to kick around ideas and riffs, and about six weeks later we started laying down the tracks for what was to become the Holy Diver album."

The new material was written after the band toured the classic Dio songs. During the tour, when the band started really connecting with each other musically, that’s when they decided the time was right to start writing new material for what was to become the Last In Line debut album.

Vivian Campbell will also be putting time aside to go on tour with Last In Line when not touring with Def Leppard. Expect 2016 tour dates and festival appearances to be announced in the coming weeks.

Paul Gilbert: getting the Shred out of music and putting the groove in! for

http: // ...
Paul Gilbert says the most common mistake of many guitar players too focused on shred: forget that what they sound should work applied to music. Instead they play for hours just lick, without music or, worse still, as a pretext to build songs sciorinare lick hell. Sins of youth, that the same Gilbert today is criticized.
