Ron Jarzombek: Prosthetic Records set to release Watchtower's recent digital-only tracks on LP and CD

PROSTHETIC RECORDS will be releasing legendary progressive metallers WATCHTOWER’s recent digital-only tracks on LP and CD. The four tracks will be combined with one brand new song, creating the EP “Concepts of Math: Book One” and will be released on limited edition vinyl and digipack CD later this year.

Guitarist Ron Jarzombek further remarked on the partnership:
“I’m psyched to be on the same label as my old friend Marty Friedman! Prosthetic has also been home to great bands like Gojira, Animals As Leaders, All That Remains, as well as my fellow Texans, Scale the Summit. It’s nice to know we are in good company on this label. The music we’ll release later this year picks up right where we left off with ‘Control And Resistance’.”
WATCHTOWER was formed in 1982 in Austin, TX and has been hailed as the first jazz inspired progressive metal band. They have released two full length albums to date: “Energetic Disassembly” in 1985 and 1989’s “Control and Resistance”, which is often hailed as the benchmark for progressive metal and has influenced a countless number of heavy, technical bands. “Control and Resistance” was inducted into Decibel Magazine’s Hall of Fame in 2010.

Brett Garsed: thinking of selling my Brian Moore MC-1 serial # 346

Brett Garsed guitarist

I'm thinking of selling my Brian Moore MC-1 serial # 346. It has the composite back and neck, Dimarzio pickups, Wilkinson bridge and also has all the guitar synth stuff installed. It also has the rocking nut which was only ever used on a Steinberger GS. Only has a few minor bumps and marks on it. The inlays alone are a work of art.

This is the guitar I used when TJ and I played at Musicians Institute so there's quite a few videos on Youtube of the guitar in action. Does anyone have an idea of what sort of price this guitar would be sold for? They're quite rare so I don't see many others offered for sale that I can compare it to.

Steve Vai, Zakk Wylde, Yngwie Malmsteen, Nuno Bettencourt, Tosin Abasi: Generation Axe tour dates

Generation Axe, featuring Steve Vai, Zakk Wylde, Yngwie Malmsteen, Nuno Bettencourt and Tosin Abasi.

Beginning April 5 in Seattle, Generation Axe: A Night of Guitars is hitting the road for 26 performances in North America. Tickets for all shows go on sale February 19.
"The Generation Axe show is a unique performance of five fiercely talented guitar players coming together to create a six-string extravaganza that is sure to amaze and delight,” Vai says.

The Generation Axe fan experience will go way beyond simply gathering five guitar greats on one stage to jam. Each tour stop will include a variety of collaborations by the five players, including everyone performing together as one cohesive band with a rhythm section including Pete Griffin (Dweezil Zappa, Stanley Clarke, Edgar Winter) on bass and Nick Marinovich (Yngwie Malmsteen) on keys. Vai, Wylde, Malmsteen, Bettencourt and Abasi will perform songs from their various catalogs and join forces on some well-known songs (as well as probably a few unexpected, unearthed gems).

Making this rare tour experience even more special, Generation Axe VIP packages will be offered, giving fans access to these guitars masters and exclusive one-of-a-kind memorabilia. A front-row package (including a meet & greet), a meet & greet package and a VIP tour package will be available. For more information, visit

Chantel McGregor: UK Telegraph interview - still struggling against sexism in 2016!!

Chantel McGregor: There’s a lot of sexism in the industry. I walked into a guitar shop the other day with my father. The guy working there ignored me and just said ‘hi’ to my dad.

So I told him exactly what I wanted - the precise specifications, using all the right jargon. He was dumb-founded that a girl could discuss music and knew what she was talking about.

I’ve had people in shops ask me, ‘do you know what a plectrum is?’ It’s pathetic.

I still get people at my gigs wanting to know why I look 'girly' and wear dresses. They ask: ‘Why isn’t she wearing leather pants?' or 'Why doesn’t she have her boobs out?’

Men can't get their heads round the fact I play rock music but like to look feminine. I wish they’d open their minds.
