Go Behind the Scenes Making the Song “From Can to Can’t” with Corey Taylor and Dave Grohl [VIDEO]

Playing the song "From Can to Can't", reminded me that I was watching the making of the song video on YouTube this morning, and if you haven't seen it, check it out! It's from the Sound City Soundtrack, Dave Grohl's documentary about the legendary recording studio called Sound City. There's a DVD you can get, of course, and here's some cool behind the scenes footage from the making of the music for the soundtrack.

You get to see how good a singer Corey Taylor is, and how other parts of the song come together to make this amazing music!

Megadeth Shred a Live Version of a New Song “Kingmaker” from Brussels [VIDEO]

The new Megadeth album Super Collider comes out on Tuesday! I've heard two songs from the album so far. The first one, "Super Collider", I wasn't over the moon about. It's a straight-forward rock song, something you might find on Risk-era Megadeth. Not horrible by any stretch of the imagination, but probably not a song that will be high on my playlist.

But the second song they even let out in a really cool way.

Some Great Local Musicians Who Kicked Ass at Balloonfest on Sunday [VIDEO]

You know by now that I'm a huge music fan, and I love original music from local guys. As long as you're doing what you love to do, I'm down. Even if it's not something I'm really interested in, I still respect and dig that you're doing your thing. Keep at it! We need more people creating and doing new stuff.

Some of the people around town that I really like are all different, and range from jazz to reggae to rock to blues to metal...I'm down with all of it! Check out these guy, who are two of my favorite local musicians.

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.

Tony began his classical training at five years old, and trained on classical piano and violin at the Springfield Conservatory of Music in Massachusetts.

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.
