Catching Up With Ethan Brosh

1493247_10152331980466779_1280893659_nEthan Brosh is a guitar player of extraordinary talent. His heart and soul lie with such greats as Lynch, MacAlpine, Becker, Freidman and Vai. “Live The Dream” will prove to the world what Brosh has to offer and trust me it’s a shredder’s wet dream. I caught up with Ethan prior to his CD release party at the Hard Rock Café in Boston on May 31, check out what he had to say below.

Interviewed by: Roger Scales

Tonight (May 31) is the CD release party for your new album Live The Dream out now on Carmine Appice’s new record Label Rocker Records. Tell us a little about the record itself and how you found a home with Rocker Records?
The record took me two years to complete. I had been writing this material for quite awhile now. Some of the music was from years ago and I just had to complete certain tunes. I had some ideas and I just had to actually just finish them off, which is really the hardest part. But I’d say the actual writing process from the time I got on it and to finish recording it, then mastering it and getting the packaging completed took two years. Another year and a couple of months before it found a home on Rocker Records. Being on tour with Yngwie (Malmsteen) in 2013 distracted me from focusing in on the release of “Live The Dream”. It ended up working out just fine because Carmine Appice started his own brand new record label (Rocker Records) and it was just perfect. In fact I believe I’m the first artist on his new label. It was through my connection with my publicist that I came to the attention of Carmine’s business partner and somehow I was the type of artist they were looking for.              Read more

If you didn’t know any better, a quick glance at Orianthi’s resume would have you believe that she’s a seasoned musician who is well into a 20-30 year career. The fact is that at 28 years of age, Orianthi’s accomplishments put to shame those of musicians many years her senior. She’s received the guidance and praise of guitar legends Steve Vai and Carlos Santana who became award of her talent when she was still a teenager. Read more

George Lynch

June 20, 2011 by  
Filed under Interviews

When George Lynch started digging into the writing process for his latest solo album Kill All Control, the intent was to write a new Souls of We album however, what would follow is a solo album with contributions from four different lead vocalists and a bevy of guest appearances.  On vocals the album offers up tracks with London LeGrand (Souls of We), Will Marten (Earshot), Marc Torien ( Bulletboys), and Keith St. John ( Montrose) – why pick one lead singer when you can showcase four of the best!

Kill All Control also features “Son of Scary”, a song that follows up one of Lynch’s most beloved instrumental tracks written during his time in Dokken, “Mr. Scary”.   “Son of Scary” also has a guest appearance on it, Cinderella drummer Fred Coury offers up his skin-bashing for the recording.

With a new solo album, a new Lynch Mob album in the works and a Lynch Mob tour on tap, you’d think that George would be short on free time, but somehow he’s managed to launch his own custom guitar company called ” Mr. Scary Guitars” selling custom, hand carved, guitars he creates – each one like a piece of art.

We recently had the opportunity to catch up with George to talk about the new solo album, Lynch Mob, his career and his new guitar company.

George Lynch To Release “Kill All Control” On June 21st

May 10, 2011 by  
Filed under Daily Music News

The shredder George Lynch is back!  He’s announced plans to release his eleventh solo album in nearly twenty years.  Kill All Control is set for release on June 21st through Rocket Science, Inc.  Fans can check out the track “Wicked Witch” here.

What began as a follow-up to the Souls of We debut, Let The Truth Be Known, George quickly realized the project was taking on a new direction with the addition of Powerman 5000 drummer, Adrian Ost.  While writing with Souls of We singer, London LeGrand (Brides of Destruction), George noted, “The creative juices flowed and we wrote most of the CD in 10 days.”

Kill All Control combines many of Lynch’s varied styles and histories, including a reflection back to earlier days which spawned a follow up to the instrumental Dokken track, “Mr.Scary”, called “Son Of Scary” featuring Fred Coury of Cinderella on Drums.  Additional guests on the album include a variety of known singers.  Will Marten (Earshot),  Marc Torien ( Bullet Boys), and Keith St. John ( Montrose) all joined in on the new album in which George hopes he was able “to create an eclectic listening experience for my fans.”

In 2009, George re-formed Lynch Mob and released Smoke and Mirrors, which resulted in an extended tour and the reuniting of the original Lynch Mob Line-up, to the delight of many fans.  Lynch Mob are currently also working on a new album, due out later this year.  

The track listing for Kill All Control is: 

1.       Kill All Control                                        7.   Voices In My Head
2.       Brank New Day                                      8.   Resurrect
3.       Done                                                     9.   Here Comes The Sun
4.       Flys on the Wall                                               10.   My Enemy
5.       Wicked Witch                                       11.   Son of Scary
6.       Man on Fire
