Update From The Road: Poland and Siberia

May 10, 2014

Hey folks,
We had the good fortune to have a stop on our tour in Wroclaw Poland. This city is a secret jewel. It’s historic architecture, lush botanical gardens and rich culture has made it one of my very look forward to cities when touring. This year we performed at the “Thanks Jimi” festival and I was able to take part in breaking the World Record for the most guitar players to play “Hey Joe”. Haaaa, What will they think of next.
It was a blast and here are some vids and photos.
That night we played at the festival along with Michael Angelo Batio, Uriah Heep (one of my favorite bands as a teenager) and Eric Burden and the Animals.
There is a beautiful park across from the hotel that I was walking through and the folks there were all getting ready for the concert with their guitars.

Danielle Gottardo

April 25, 2014

Hey Folks
Every now and then, perhaps I would even say once in a blue moon, (and a blue moon is very rare) I come across a guitar talent that is truly stimulating to me. This young Italian guy Daniele Gottardo is one of those people. His technique is stunning but his choice of notes and the harmonic/melodic atmospheres he creates have unique qualities to them. For me his music has a way to scratch an itch that’s very hard to reach.

These are from around 1984 and were shot by Marco Llanos.
This was when we were living in Sylmar and I was working out of my Stucco Blue Studio after the Zappa tours and before the Roth thing.
During the Flex-Able period. Life seemed so simple. Almost as simple as it is now.
