time to hit the (abbey) road

EVERY YEAR, ONE of my bands plays an entire Beatles album (plus another full set’s worth of Fab Four tunes) at the historic and insanely ornate St. George Theatre in Staten Island, New York. The for-charity event pays tribute to whatever Beatles album happens to be turning 50 that year, and this past June 1, we honored the band’s 1969 masterpiece, Abbey Road. Playing Help! in 2015 had its moments. Playing Revolver in 2016 was fun and challenging in its own way. Playing Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band with a full orchestra in 2017 was otherworldly, and playing the White Album in 2018 was, you know, not without its charm. But in terms of a Beatles album that gives an electric lead guitarist plenty of fun stuff to do, song…

sounding board

Time for Some New Blood! All of your recent cover artists have been classic rock, other than John Petrucci, who is 30-plus years into his career. I love the old guard, but how about some young blood? The guitar scene is going to need to support the young musicians going forward to sustain itself. Devin Townsend, John Baizley, Ben Savage, Mark Lettieri, the Periphery guys, Alexi Laho, Mark Morton and Olavi Mikkonen all have new stuff out. Let’s put them on the cover and not let guitar rock die with the old guard! —Andrew G. An Invite to the Tea Party Love your magazine and I really look forward to every issue. Petrucci again? I know he sells issues and he is awesome, but there is a bigger picture! I urge you to continue…

quite the organization

WHEN THEY FORMED as teenagers in 1982, San Francisco’s Death Angel strived to play complex, unconventional thrash influenced equally by Metallica and Rush. “Right off the bat, we were trying to be progressive when we barely even knew three chords,” says main songwriter and guitarist Rob Cavestany, with a chuckle as he and his bandmates prepare for the release of their ninth album, Humanicide. “We couldn’t play cover tunes because we weren’t good enough, so we just wrote our own songs. We had no idea what we were doing.” Through constant practice and unerring determination, the band members became more proficient and in 1987 they released their first full-length album, The Ultra-Violence. The band’s iconic thrash combined rapid-fire tempos with unusual time signatures, abrupt rhythm shifts and off-kilter riffs that sometimes…

1 Scherzo Fantastique Op. 3 Igor Stravinsky This piece is always a source of musical inspiration. Tonality at its limits, luminescent orchestration and the freshness of a genius composer in his twenties. 2 “Let Me Go, Rock ’n’ Roll” Kiss Probably the first solo I learned on the guitar! I always loved the genuine energy of Ace Frehley in his prime. 3 Nenie Op. 67 Anatoly Liadov The real Russian sound from a relatively unknown composer. Perfect and colorful harmonies give his music a visionary and evocative sound. 4 “Bloodshed” Gretchen Menn Gretchen showcases her compositional skills in this quasi-atonal piece that blends distorted guitar and a string quartet. 5 “Oblivion” Pasquale Grasso Pasquale (playing Bud Powell) shows his knowledge of the classic-jazz idiom, combined with an incredible technique nurtured by his classical background. He’s my favorite bebop guitar…

“I STILL FEEL like an imposter when I hang out with the shredder guys,” says Big Wreck frontman and guitarist Ian Thornley. “I think of myself as a writer, a singer and a guitarist.” That said, a cursory listen to the Canadian rockers’ new album, …But for the Sun, reveals that Thornley is doing himself a serious disservice. In reality, he has the kind of chops that leave most guitarists quaking in their boots. Then you need to factor in his ability to write and sing instantly memorable songs. “I find the shredding thing can be a quick high,” he says. “I can spend so much time chasing down a technique to nail it, but in the end the greatest reward is to be able to chase down the connection with…
