Loads of Kevy Metal in next month’s Gitarist!

If there is something like a favorite issue of a magazine I contribute to, next month’s issue of Gitarist, which will be in stores this week, is very likely to become this year’s entry. This issue counts three interviews and I’ve conducted and two photos taken by yours truly. Sami Yli-Sirniö from Kreator spoke to me about ‘Phantom Antichrist’ and the equipment used to record the album. Belgian-Dutch Rock sensation Drive Like Maria – check them out if you haven’t already, you must! – told me about the years between their debut ‘Elmwood’ and this years sensational self-titled album and Metal/Fusion bassist extraordinaire Steve DiGiorgio gives a lesson in fretless vs. fretted and claiming your place in Heavy Metal as a bassist.

Besides that, there’s a cool interview with Slash about the recordings of ‘Apocalyptic Love’ – last week’s album of the week on this weblog – and a special on Surf guitar. Legendary Strat player Eric Johnson is interviewed and my good friend Vincent van der Horst had a chat with Mastodon’s Bill Kelliher. As for photography, both live photos of Drive Like Maria included in the magazine are mine. All this and more in issue number 256 of Gitarist!
