Please send Jason Becker some good vibes and love.

"Jason has requested prayers from all you wonderful folks out there. He can feel your prayers, and is experiencing shortness-of-breath and a rapid heart rate which is pretty scary stuff.

He has not been able to communicate his gratitude and love for all the recent donations and support, but he is so grateful to you all and hopes to get back to a level of energy that makes it possible to let you all know, personally, how much he appreciates you. We are in constant contact with his doctors and will keep you posted.

Thank you all."

Very sad to hear...talented player and so young

One of the most renowned guitarists in the world, Alexi Laiho, has passed away. The musician, most notably known as the front man of Children of Bodom, died in his home in Helsinki, Finland, last week. Laiho had suffered from long-term health issues during his last years.

More than 25 years of friendship. We lost a brother. The world lost a phenomenal song writer and one of the greatest guitarists of all time. Memories and Alexi’s music will live forever.

Our thoughts are with Alexi’s family during this difficult time.

-Henkka, Janne and Jaska

Lee Kerslake, Ozzy Osbourne and Uriah Heep Drummer, Dead at 73

Yah we loved Randy but the solid band behind him for those 1st 2 albums brought it all together. While Bob went back and forth with Ozzy over the years contributing bass and lyrics Lee never got his due. He finally was presented his platinum record a few years ago at NAMM at the Randy Rhoads remembered gig. RIP Mr. Kerslake...long live the intro to Over the Mountain!

Drummer played on Blizzard of Ozz and Diary of a Madman

Wow!! Amazing!!

I know I get really excited about posting and sharing great experiences with y’all, as I’m always grateful for all these opportunities.

But this one?
This is a big one for me.

This is beyond my wildest dreams, in so many ways.

If you had told my younger teenage self that I’d be Performing one of most iconic songs in the history of Rock and Roll, Bohemian Rhapsody AND attempting to replace all the vocals including the vocal opera with an ALL GUITAR version AND with 3 out of 5 guitarists being my true guitar heroes that changed my life, Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen AND the 3rd being Brian May himself, who recorded and performed this historic song and passionate guitar solo with his Legendary band Queen. AND THEN throw in one of my generations ripping guitar peers, Zakk Wylde, and top it off with this generations innovative guitar wizardry of Tosin Abasi...

The young ME would’ve said... get out of my f**king room and shut the door so I can get back to studying the entire Queen catalog, Vai’s Passion and Warfare and Yngwie’s Rising Force.

Yeah, this is just special.

Not only for me , but for the sake of music and guitarists.

You see, this proves whilst we can all do amazing solo things on our own, these monster virtuoso players and guitar icons are willing to put their own history and ego aside to pull off something bigger than themselves.
Something we know we are incapable of doing alone.
Something that can only be done with 6 of us coming together.

Something special.

Humbly, all the video performances you’ve seen from the AXSTV show, I edited myself.
Not cause I wanted to, but because I had to.
I wanted you to see them the way I saw them in my head and heart.

Unfortunately, I ran out of time on this one right before it aired, as editing this monster was like climbing Mount Everest, Hard. But once you’re up there worth every sleepless night getting it done.

So I guess this is the “world premiere”of the Directors Cut.

Brian... on behalf of the Generation aXe boys, thanks for making our dream come true.

Gretchen Menn

Check out Gretchen Menn rockn with Dweezil Zappa!

Last week I was invited to sit in with Dweezil Zappa and his formidable band at The Regency Ballroom. Some of you realize just how much this means to me. As a teenager, I became obsessed with the music of Frank Zappa. I imposed it on my friends and anyone who would listen. I bonded with others over the shared love… it was like being part of a secret society of those who “got it.” I even managed to convince a particularly open-minded professor in my college’s music department to approve and oversee a special studies project I concocted on the music of Zappa.

So these precious moments on stage last week really felt like a dream. I am grateful beyond words. Thank you, Dweezil, for your immense graciousness and kindness… and for keeping your father’s music alive with all the respect, authenticity, and brilliant musicianship it deserves.

Apologies for the video quality. If anyone got better video of this, please let me know!
