Need for Speed: The 50 Fastest Guitarists of All Time
GW exceeds the legal limit with this roundup of the 50 fastest masters of the fretboard.
The Great Kat
SIGNATURE SONG: “The Flight of the Bumble Bee”
ALBUM: Beethoven on Speed
It’s hard to know whether the Great Kat’s thrash metal interpretations of classical music compositions are meant to be taken seriously—especially when her albums have titles like Beethoven on Speed, Bloody Vivaldi and Rossini’s Rape—but when this Juilliard-trained virtuoso plays it’s certainly no joke.
With a heavy leather dominatrix persona so over the top that she makes Yngwie Malmsteen seem like Tony Randall, the Great Kat would make a fine role model for young ladies who want to shred if she didn’t scare the living shit out of them.
