Maestro Alex Gregory
SIGNATURE SONG: “Heavy Metal Mandolin Boogie”
ALBUM: 12 Jokes for Heavy Metal Mandolin
Maestro Alex Gregory probably earned more enemies than fans in his time.
He sued Ibanez over the seven-string guitar (he patented and developed a seven-string Strat with Fender in 1987, three years before the Ibanez Universe hit the market), took the title of “Maestro” (allegedly bestowed upon him by Queen Elizabeth in 1983) and released an album depicting himself pissing on the graves of Yngwie Malmsteen and Steve Vai.
Even so, he’s earned the respect of many heavy friends, including drummer Matt Bissonette, bass player Dave LaRue and guitarist Albert Lee, all of whom have participated in musical projects with the Maestro.
