From: Nickelback - "All The Right Reasons" - 2005
> Nickelback is a Canadian rock band from Hanna, Canada. - Since 1995 the band has included guitarist and lead vocalist Chad Kroeger, guitarist and back-up vocalist Ryan Peake and bassist Mike Kroeger.
The band's current drummer and percussionist is Daniel Adair who has been with the band since 2005, replacing drummer Ryan Vikedal who was with the band between 1998–2005.
> Nickelback has always defied conventional norms; they've pushed boundaries and marched to the beat of their own drum. Call it wisdom or stubbornness, but the band's tenacity has paid off in droves.
Billboard magazine named Nickelback "Group of the Decade" and their 2001 breakthrough hit "How You Remind Me" as "Top Rock Song" of the decade. They've achieved a remarkable five Grammy Award
nominations, three American Music Awards, a World Music Award, a People's Choice Award, and 12 Juno Awards. Their 2005 album "All The Right Reasons" remained in the Billboard Top 30 for over
two years, was certified 8-times platinum in the U.S. and sold a staggering 11 million copies worldwide, spawning five Top 20 singles.
They - so far - have played to well over five million fans across the globe. With 15 radio hits charting at #1 since 2000, Nickelback has earned the unique distinction of being the second best-selling foreign act in America...
right beside the Beatles.
> Not bad for a group of guys who as teens simply dreamed of one day performing "to more than just the steering wheel” as Kroeger so famously sang in his nostalgic confessional "Photograph.” "Geez, I remember playing every night in a cover band in these small clubs and maybe making $300 a week and thinking to myself, 'This is so awesome! What am I going to do with all this money?'" chuckles Kroeger, reflecting on his humble beginnings as a musician. His brother, bassist Mike Kroeger, remembers those early days well. "We would always think, 'God, wouldn't it be cool to play our songs for someone other than just our roommates or family - somewhere where people actually showed up to watch music?' But believe me, none of us as kids were learning how to play the pentatonic scale going, 'Yup, Wembley Arena here we come!" says Kroeger with a huge laugh.
From: "Revelator" - Tedeschi Trucks Band - 2011
Revelator is the long-awaited, song-oriented debut
album by the husband-wife team of singer/guitarist
Susan Tedeschi and guitarist Derek Trucks. Filled
with smoky, blues-dipped rockers and heart-stilling
ballads that show off, respectively, the gutsier and
softer side of Tedeschi's vocal ability, plus a series
of emotive, story-telling solos shaped by Trucks's
uncanny agility on slide-guitar, Revelator also serves
to introduce the couple's new, 11-piece ensemble
Tedeschi Trucks Band. Understandingly hailed as a "Masterpiece"...I know I can't quit listening or playing along with this one since it's release...Awesome !!

From: "The 20/20 Experince" - Justin Timberlake - 2013
I really wanted to add my favorite track from the album
'Mirrors' - which I loved the first time I heard it when
Justin joined the legendary 'Five Timers Club' as host & musical guest on SNL - 030913 - but all of the tracks on the entire 10 track album (including Mirrors) are too long, (most 7-8 mins) except this one. (Here's the Mirrors Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uuZE_IRwLNI - c.f.

At the age of 12, his mother got a call from a local promoter, Richard Thornton asking if he wanted to be the opening act at a concert at which King was the headliner. After hearing the gifted adolescent play, King was so impressed that he invited Bonamassa to tour over the summer with his band.

I heard Gin for the first time performing this song on The Tonight Show w/ Jay Leno - promoting her new album "Gravel and Wine" and was quite impressed with her entire performance. Her vocals are different than anything I've heard, although she does remind me of Joan Jett, and was surprised when she first started this song, but by half way through - she made a new fan and a believer out of me !! - c.f.

From Lionel Richie's multi-platinum, Grammy winning Album "Can't Slow Down" - 1983
Not only does this song instantly motivate one to move if not dance, it also contains one of the greatest one-take guitar solos ever recorded. The electric guitar solo was performed by renowned guitar slinger Steve Lukather, best known as a member of the rock band Toto. Lukather sat down in the studio and the engineer played the basic tracks of the song, for him to hear for the first time, so he could plan his part. As the music played, he jammed along on his instrument. At the conclusion of tune, he said to the engineer, "okay, I'm ready for a take." The producer replied, "That was a take."

Lynyrd Skynyrd had already fulfilled a good deal of
its promise on definitive Southern-rock albums such as
'Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-nerd' and the live 'One More
From the Road' when they stepped up their ambition a few more notches for this October 1977 release. Fueled by new member Steve Gaines, the Florida band produced its best album.

- 1998 - What an awesome song !! Another song I didn't know existed until I dropped in on a Jennifer Marriott & Odd Sheep Out gig one night - already half way through the song,...and loved it instantly.

"Shot to Hell" is BLS's 7th studio record & 9th overall release.
Zakk Wylde is known for his use of Gibson Les Paul Custom model guitars with a "bulls-eye" graphic on them, a design he used to deliberately differentiate himself visually from Randy Rhoads - who was also frequently identified by his white Les Paul Custom. Interestingly, one of Wylde's favorite stage guitars of late is a replica of Rhoads' Flying V.
The "bulls-eye" paint job was originally supposed to look
like the spiral from the movie Vertigo, but when it came
back incorrect from the luthier, he liked the result and
stuck with it.
- Practice: Zakk uses Marshall MG Series practice combos
ranging in wattage levels from 10-30W during tour/private use especially in hotels and buses. Zakk also has an extensive relationship with Marshall Amplification due to his love for their amplifiers, both solid state and valve powered.
- Live: Zakk exclusively uses Marshall JCM 800's with twin
4 X 12 Cabinets loaded with EVM12L 300W Black Label Speakers.
His usual signal path consists of his guitar > Dunlop Wylde Wah > Dunlop Rotovibe > MXR EVH Phase 90 (*Soon to be replaced by the new MXR Wylde Phase) > MXR Wylde Overdrive > MXR Black Label Chorus > split signals, one to each distorted amp.
My Friend Becky Brooks (OldHippieChick) introduced me to this band just last week...(100412) - they've been described as "Imagine a mini-skirted Tina Turner wailing into a hot mic with the Rolling Stones playing behind her."
