Ben Woods’ Same Day Cover of Yngwie Malmsteen’s “Wolves At The Door”

 

“Wolves at the Door was released this morning (May 7 2021) by the Maestro Yngwie J. Malmsteen. I instantly fell in love with it, so I just had to learn it and post my Flamenco guitar version this same day! A tribute to the Maestro! Of course, it’s not a Spanish guitar but a Nylocaster (nylon string electric guitar made by me). http://nylocaster.com

Ziggy Marley’s Live Tribute to Bob Marley Kicked off Season 2 of Concerts In Your Car at Ventura County Fairgrounds April 17, 2021

Photos by Alex Kluft

Once the Covid-19 pandemic began in the U.S. in March 2020 concerts began to be postponed and ultimately cancelled as well as any kind of in-person event. With any kind of gathering being put on hold live-stream concerts became the new normal until live concerts could resume, however to be able to make it work with social distancing guidelines drive-in concerts kicked off. Concerts in your car had a great season last year at the Ventura Country Fairgrounds including 311, Bush, Snoop Dogg, Cypress Hill, and the Beach Boys. 


Concerts In Your Car is back, as the season kicked off Saturday night with none other than Ziggy Marley paying tribute to his father, the great Bob Marley. Last year would’ve been Marley’s 75th birthday and
May 11 this year marks the 40th anniversary of his untimely passing at the age of 36.

Bob Marley left behind an incredible legacy and is known to be the greatest Reggae artist of all time. Ziggy Marley, the oldest son in the family is an 8-time Grammy winner, played two back-to-back shows in Ventura to capacity crowds.

Safe and socially distant, this concert promotion offers something truly special to people of all ages with nice afternoons and evenings enjoying fantastic music with the beach as a backdrop.

Ziggy kicked off the show with “The Heathen” and ended with “Exodus” with a large portion of the songs from Bob Marley and The Wailers, along with a few Ziggy classics:

The show was full of fantastic musicianship, sound, sight lines and a very memorable performance that truly honored Bob Marley’s legacy. Everyone onstage and in the crowd looked so happy to be there as music and love filled the air.  It was a truly special event at just the right time.   Ziggy Marley and his band have a few more dates coming up and put on a show you won’t want to miss: https://www.ziggymarley.com

Gibson and Rock Icon Gene Simmons Enter Joint Venture to Launch G²

G² To Introduce New Electric Guitar and Bass Collections and Streaming Entertainment Content

You live and die by the instrument in your hands. You can stick your tongue out only so many times, but you have got to deliver the goods.” 

–Gene Simmons

Gibson, the iconic American guitar brand, has entered into a joint venture with Gene Simmons, international rock legend and co-founder of KISS, America’s #1 gold record award-winning group of all time, in all categories (RIAA), to create G². G², from Gene to Gibson, will introduce new collections of right and left-handed electric guitars and basses across Gibson’s Gibson, Epiphone and Kramer brands, and develop new entertainment content that will be streamed to millions of fans worldwide on multiple online and social platforms.

 

To kick off the collaboration, G² will release the new G² Thunderbird Bass later this year. The G² Thunderbird Bass, which will be available in ebony with silver appointments and ebony with blood red, made its worldwide debut on stage with Simmons recently during KISS’ epic New Year’s Eve concert in Dubai.

“I have been designing and trademarking bass guitars for decades, and when I heard Gibson’s vision and learned about their creative process, it just made sense for us to join forces to take things to the next level,” said Simmons. “Gibson is an outstanding company and has earned its place as a leading guitar brand with fans around the world. These guitars and basses will all be handmade, with a sound that is off the charts. The design is so beautiful and collectible that they are simply works of art.”

 

Following the launch of the G² Thunderbird Bass, G² has plans for a Flying V bass and Flying V guitar.

 

“Gene is not only one of the most celebrated musicians and rock stars of all time. He is also an entrepreneur, record producer, actor and overall creative person. His brain is always working, and I love that about him,” said Cesar Gueikian of Gibson Brands. “When we first connected, we immediately engaged in the most interesting conversations about guitars, entertainment, and business. Our shared vision compelled us to explore a partnership that would include developing instruments and creating a new platform to entertain and inspire new generations of Gibson and Gene Simmons fans to create music. Expect epic things.”

Steve Vai An Earth Dweller’s Return Fathom Gallery 12/14/2019

STEVE VAI: An Earth Dweller’s Return showcases the musician’s hand painted guitars and artwork, created often in airplanes, tour buses, hotel rooms, backstage, and his own home studio. Steve allows his unconscious to guide the process and because of this, he is able to create unique compositions, informed by his unique life experiences and the visual information he’s been absorbing since childhood.

Some of the work is freeform with an almost psychedelic residue and others, have a more hieroglyphic vibe that feels connected to the layout and mathematics of music charts. Steve Vai’s work has an unmistakable rhythm that comes from a creative process born in the recording studio and applied to the visual arts.
