Paul “Slow hand” Gilbert!


My favorite guitarist is hands down Paul Gilbert. I’ve been an early Racer X fan, I’ve been a Mr.Big fan (first album only), and I’ve been a Paul Gilbert fan. Over the years he’s done pretty well for himself. He got his start when he submitted a demo tape to play in Ozzy Osbourne’s band after Randy Rhodes had died. Ozzy passed on him, which in the long run was probably for the best otherwise he would not have teamed up with Bruce Bouillet to create Racer X. I will be posting a lot of Gilbert’s stuff on this side. However for those who do not know who he is, the above is just a small taste of what he has done. For a block of three years, he’s put together a band of heavyweights and each year the theme would be for instance, one year it was The Who, another year, Beatles tribute, etc. I think there is a Led Zepplin one as well. Either way I’m hoping he does this again. He is just a fun guitarist to watch. Much MUCH More to come.
