Hollywood Drumshow

Just got back from a long day at the Hollywood Custom & Vintage Drums Show... imagine many, many drum solos being played at once in the same room for 9 hours. Friends Frankie Banali (Quiet Riot), Glen Sobel (my drummer) and Todd Sucherman (Styxx) were in attendence, and Todd gave a great clinic/performance.  Also, it looks like Todd will be playing drums on my next CD, keeping my fingers crossed that he ends up having time from his super busy schedule, as he will be doing Styxx dates as well as sessions for a new Brian Wilson recording. All right time for dinner.

LA Amp Show

Hey folks,

I attended the LA Amp Show today. Just a couple blocks from the house at the Airtel Hotel next to the Van Nuys Airport. 70+ companies attended, lots of great sounding AMPs and some interesting guitars, and some familiar faces and friends.

Up first was a preamp FX pedal called the Skull Crusher by Tone Box. This monster is made of solid metal and shaped like a human skull, with glowing eyes. 4 channels, and tone knob and boost... delivered a nice rich, clear tone - nicely overdriven too. Check them out at www.thetonebox.com

The most interesting Amp of the day may have been the DAR Powetone amp. With a clear window in the from of the chassis, the player gets a nice view of the glowing 6C33 power tubes, the same tubes used in Russian fighter jets, like the MIG, made to withstand EMP bursts from nuclear war. The sound and volume was huge and impressive. www.daramps.com

Also of interest was the Fractal Audio programable, modeling preamp/pedal board. Great, realistic tones for recording and live performance, and not a bad price $1499-$1999 for the main preamp/unit. Check out http://www.fractalaudio.com/

Egnater was showing their beautiful vintage inspired line including the Tourmaster, Rebel, and Renegade.

Even Peavey was showing their new Custom Built Amplifiers, with Celestion Speakers. -Nice. The Masterpiece 50 handwired, 2 channel head looked incredible. - Didn't get a chance to hear it, but take look for yourself: www.peavey.com

Guitar buddies such as Carl Verheyen (on the "Tone Panel"), Rick Brannon, and Doug Doppler were in attendance. While no purchases were made, all and all a good hang.

The 70s

Just had dinner with the wife at an Italian pizzeria in Woodland Hills - good deep dish pie, try it at Paoli's. Anyways, we were talking about what music our parents listened to. Mine - not sure, but they bought a few vinyl records like Pink Floyd's The Wall, ABBA, Village People, ELO etc... not that they listened to them much, I think my brothers and I pretty much took them to the basement and listened to these records, fascinated by them, or anything we put on the turntable. Melinda's parents listened to Alice Cooper, Zappa... neither were into the Beatles, hmmm. Not sure why, but what a time the 70s were for music. I was born in '75, but boy the tunes resonated with me, as I discovered them growing up. If you think about how much music has changed, or not changed in the last 10 years, 1999-2009...then think about how music transformed in the ten year period from '69-'79, its amazing. You went from Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, psychedelic music, and Sgt. Peppers to Van Halen in just under 10 years. Hell, by '78 disco was in, and Deep Purple was broken up, if not just considered dinosaurs.

Music hasn't changed that much recently, just seems to be more of it.

Blog number 1 - Music Lessons

Hello folks,

I have been teaching guitar lessons again. Its been a while, but I have started up again this past year. I find the right teaching situations to be very satisfying. With recent stints teaching at the National Guitar Workshop, Duquesne University's Summer Guitar Workshop, and now at the Hollywood School of Rock, it has been great to be teaching enthusiastic, passionate students - rather than baby sit. I have been having great luck, getting good results, by teaching music as if it were a language, building my student's vocabulary one word, phrase, and sentance at a time. Pretty soon, I'll post some video lessons. Till then!
