PACKAGES ON-SALE NOW  AT THE G4 EXPERIENCE

Los Angeles, CA (November 30, 2016) JOE SATRIANI reveals the details for Joe Satriani’s G4 Experience: Surfing with the Alien 30th Anniversary July 24-28 at Asilomar Center in Carmel, CA. Packages are available at the camp’s official site starting today— http://g4experience.com/

For its fourth installment, the G4 Experience enjoys a game-changing and historic first. The camp will celebrate the writing, recording, and performance of SATRIANI’s seminal GRAMMY Award-nominated, platinum-selling 1987 epic, Surfing with the Alien – one of the most successful instrumental guitar albums ever made. Recognizing the record’s 30th anniversary, campers will enjoy the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to pull back the curtain on the album with the visionaries behind the music.

SATRIANI will be joined by longtime co-conspirator and Surfing with the Alien co-producer John Cuniberti in addition to other special guests. His original live band during the record’s tour cycle, Stu Hamm and Jonathan Mover, return for the first time since 1995 for the evening’s performances.

About Joe Satriani’s G4 Experience: Surfing with the Alien 30th Anniversary, SATRIANI says, “To this day, every fan conversation ends up referencing Surfing with the Alien. We thought the best way to celebrate its 30th birthday would be to devote the 2017 G4 Experience to all things Surfing. It’s such a special moment for me, and I can’t wait to see everyone there so we can relive this album together and create new memories in the process.”

Sign-up is encouraged immediately as the event will sell out soon!

Frontiers Music Srl Signs THE NIGHTS – Melodic Rock Band From Finland

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on November 24, 2016 by Metal Odyssey

the-nights-2016-publicity-pic-frontiers-srl-mo99ilmfso333

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of an extremely promising Melodic Rock band from Finland, THE NIGHTS.

THE NIGHTS was formed in the summer of 2015 by Sami Hyde (vocals) and Ilkka Wirtanen (guitar). Both Sami and Ilkka have successful careers in music, in Finland and abroad. Sami has been a singer for many acts and projects, including the Tony Mills Band (SHY, TNT) in 2008 which also included Geoff Nichols (Black Sabbath) on keyboards and Neil Hibbs (SHY) on guitar. He has also written songs for many artists, including The Magnificent (“If It Takes All Night”, “Lost”, and “Drive”).

Ilkka Wirtanen is best known for his work as a producer with international acts like glam metal band Reckless Love, for whom he has produced four albums and co-written many of their popular songs, including “Hot” and “Night On Fire”. He has also produced several other rock bands (Baton Rogue Morgue, Hellcity Punks) and worked as a mixer for international acts (S.E.X. Department).

THE NIGHTS was formed because Sami and Ilkka felt a common need to write songs that “make you feel good and also give tribute to our everlasting heroes in music, for example TNT and Yngwie Malmsteen.” Frontiers interest was piqued by their songs featuring a superb mixture of classic pop melodies and modern melodic rock/metal production and the band was signed!

BLACK SABBATH “THE END” – Look At The Merch My BEST Metal Buddy Bought For Me From The Concert! Whoa! Amazing!

__________________________

I first met Scott Coverdale back in 1988, while we were both attending the same Community College together. Our relationship has bonded into a legit brotherhood ever since. Scott has been a tremendous Metal researcher for Metal Odyssey these last several years, as well. In other words, Scott is my very BEST Metal Buddy. ‘Nuff said.

Scott Coverdale was hugely fortunate to attend the Black Sabbath concert at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut, back on August 27th of this year. This of course was one stop for Black Sabbaths’ “The End” Tour.

Above: My autographed CD digipak (left inner side of duofold) – Tony Iommi & Geezer Butler.

I never thought in a million Metal years that Scott would purchase for me, as gifts, a tour tee and autographed “The End” CD for me, while he was at this show! Then again, this type of generosity from Scott is nothing new to me either. From everything that Scott told me about this Black Sabbath concert, he had a grand Metal experience!

Take a look below and above at the autographed tee and CD gifts I received from my Best Metal Buddy Scott! I still cannot believe I have this incredible cool and historic Black Sabbath concert merch! Thank you again, Scott! A brother like you I can never take for granted. Metal Be Thy Name!
