SOME OF THE best musical collaborations are those that on first glance look a little “off.” I don’t mean weird linkups like Jimmy Page, Tom Morello and P. Diddy reworking “Kashmir” for the 1998 Godzilla film, or Metallica and Lou Reed teaming up to make Lulu. I’m thinking more along the lines of Eddie Van Halen laying down the solo on Michael Jackson’s “Beat It,” Omar Rodríguez-López and John Frusciante connecting for their self-titled album, David Gilmour and the Orb conspiring on Metallic Spheres…and most certainly this issue’s cover stars Les Claypool and Sean Lennon reuniting for South of Reality, their new, and second, full-length album. The musical union of Primus bassist Claypool and multi-instrumentalist savant Lennon is inspired, entertaining and, on first glance, a little surprising. You might not immediately…

Raid Dana’s Gear Stash! The coolest part about my role as Guitar Player’s Gear Coordinator is ending up with tons of awesome products that our editors have evaluated throughout the year. Occasionally, when the reviews are complete, some generous manufacturers offer up their wares to our community, giving our loyal readers a chance to “Raid My Stash.” This month, we’re offering BAE Audio’s Hot Fuzz distortion pedal. This groovy hybrid pedal is essentially two effects in one. The left side is a high-frequency boost, and the right side is a fuzz box designed in the spirit of British 1970s-style units. For a chance to win this pedal, simply send an email with “Hot Fuzz” in the subject line to nbmgearcoordinator@gmail.com. Keep in mind that all review pedals have been used and come “as…

north star

COUNTRY ARTIST LINDSAY Ell made a big statement when her debut album, The Project (Stony Creek), landed on Nashville’s Music Row in 2017. In “guitar town,” where some of the most capable guitar-playing stars have session pickers play on their records, Ell challenged the status quo by writing, singing and playing her own songs and solos. On the cover, she’s pictured holding one of her Stratocasters. “I felt like it wouldn’t be my record if I didn’t play on it,” she says. “Playing guitar on my record is so important. It’s the other half of the song.” A native of Calgary, Alberta, Ell started out on piano but switched to guitar after hearing mainstream country stars like Shania Twain. She quickly fell in love with her new instrument and the playing of…

endless summer

IMAGINE IT’S THE Summer of Love in San Francisco’s storied Haight-Ashbury district. Hundreds of people have spontaneously gathered in Golden Gate Park to listen, dance and vibe to a five-piece combo onstage, whose members are deftly playing a bewitching blend of rock, blues, folk and psychedelia. Those with even a basic knowledge of rock and roll lore might rightly envision the Jefferson Airplane or the Grateful Dead as the artists at this historical cultural epicenter. But on any given afternoon, the band in question was just as likely to be the Ace of Cups, a pioneering all-female outfit that was as prominent on the scene as its more famous peers but which has, until recently, been nearly lost to history. The Ace of Cups were formed in 1967 by guitarist/bassist/harmonica player…

vivian campbell: my career in five songs

“I CONSIDER MYSELF to be in a very unique and privileged position,” Vivian Campbell says. “I can’t imagine there are too many people who have had as colorful and as varied a career as I’ve had.” Campbell has been on quite the journey since he formed his first group, Sweet Savage, in Belfast, Ireland, at just 15 years old. From there, he achieved international prominence in the early 1980s as the hotshot young shredder in Ronnie James Dio’s band before going on to play with everyone from Whitesnake to Thin Lizzy to the Riverdogs. These days, Campbell is the guitarist in Def Leppard, which he joined in 1992 following the death of original member Steve Clark. He also just released his sophomore effort with Last in Line, a project that was first…
