Tremonti Rocked Balloonfest Day 1 – See the Video Proof Here!

I've been looking forward to Balloonfest Saturday ever since I found out about Tremonti being signed to play. I think he's an underrated guitar player, and a fantastic songwriter.

Mark and his band didn't disappoint, either! They hit the stage with some serious chops, and ferocity that I love to see a heavy band have. They really enjoy playing these song, have a lot of skill on their instruments, and really work on bonding with the crowd, trying to make sure the people watching are as big a part of the show as they are.

Your Guitar Shredder of the Week – Tony MacAlpine for Wednesday – Tears of Sahara [VIDEO]

Wednesday on the Shredder of the Week brings us a trip back to big hair and lots of reverb. Guitar master Tony MacAlpine plays one of the songs that he released on his 1987 album Maximum Security on PolyGram...whoa, there's a name from the past, PolyGram. They died a horrible label death...eventually being absorbed into Universal Music Group.

Balloonfest Sunday is Going to Be a Really Cool Acoustic Rock Day

At first glance, an acoustic day at Balloonfest 2013 seems kind of weird. But the more you think about it, the better the idea gets! It's something we haven't done since Zakk Wylde came down and performed songs from his then new album Book of Shadows. (Anyone else remember that?) That was a really cool show, and something people really didn't expect from Zakk at the time...heck, it's still odd to think of Zakk on an acoustic guitar, even though he's just done an acoustic tour.

Your Guitar Shredder of the Week – Tony MacAlpine for Tuesday – The Violin Song [VIDEO]

Day two of Tony MacAlpine week features a song from Tony's album Premonition, called "The Violin Song". This is one of the tracks from the album that features keyboard master Jens Johansson. The melody on this one is really good, and grabs you right away.

Your Guitar Shredder of the Week – Tony MacAlpine for Monday [VIDEO]

Some of you might remember this guy's name from the 80's, when the guitar shred boom really began in a big way. Steve Vai and Yngwie Malmsteen really opened the door for a lot of guys to get known widely for instrumental music.

Kirk’s Crypt at Orion Music + More Will Be Bigger and Better This Year [VIDEO]

In case you'd need another reason to sign up for the Orion VIP trip package we're giving away, here's something I'd love to check out at the festival this year. Last year, each band member had his own "tent" with things that reflect that guy's hobbies or interests. James had cars and bikes, Lars had movies, Robert had skating stuff, and the whole band had their museum.

The part I really want to see...

A lot of people really like Yngwie, and no one can really deny the guy has a lot of talent as a shredder. Depending on your views on the blues, and ideas on note value, you may or may not enjoy what he does over this bluesy groove.

Black Sabbath Crank Out Another New Song in New Zealand – “End of the Beginning” [VIDEO]

This is an exciting time for Sabbath fans, with the first song from the new album "13" coming out last Thursday...all NINE minutes of it...and the new album not too far away. We also have a good clip from yesterday's show in Auckland of another song from the new album, called "End of the Beginning". It sounds oddly familiar, doesn't it? Still cool, though, and Tony can still play his ass off!
