He’s the guitarist who’s influenced pretty much every other guitar player, but he’s the one guitarist everyone else aspires not to be but to just be in the same league. He’s Joe Satriani! With a new solo album out called Unstoppable Momentum and his first full scale North America tour under way we have a lot to talk about including where a such distinct style like his comes from.
Then we will go In The Vault with the legendary singer of Black Sabbath Ozzy Osbourne. This is right after he left Black Sabbath and launched his extremely successful solo career. He goes on a little bit of a tirade about the ethics of Sabbath in the late 70′s.
For this week’s Power Set we pay our respects to a fallen hero of the metal family. Allen Lanier the guitarist and multi-instrumentalist from Blue Oyster Cult lost his battle with C-O-P-D on August 14th. In memory of the man we crank up four Blue Oyster Cult classics.
Also on this week’s Then and Now it’s the very underground, but very influential Trouble. A band that almost single handily created the Doom genre of metal. With their new lead singer Kyle Thomas from Exhorder and a new album they are ready for world domination again.
Finally our Heavy Metal Movie and Soundtrack Recommendation features music from Motley Crue and Queensryche and it stars comedian Andrew Dice Clay, it’s Ford Fairlane.
