Another Summer NAMM Show has come and gone! As always, Guitar World was there in force, shooting photos and videos, gathering endless gear news and trying out (and gawking at) all the new cool stuff being introduced for 2014.
They played a 90-minute set comprising a large chunk of their latest studio album, 9 Dead Alive, along with choice selections from the previous three albums. These included a cover of Metallica's "Orion" that got the crowd off its feet, and Radiohead's "Creep."
Most guitarists at one point or another in their development have gone through some sort of “I want a custom guitar” phase. Whether it’s a funky paint job or a radical new shape, a custom ax presents the opportunity to express yourself. Or, in the opinion of some, the opportunity to say, “Hey, look at me, I’m a horse’s arse!”
The Allman Brothers Band played 10 nights at New York City's Beacon Theatre before having to postpone their final four shows of the run due to Gregg Allman’s ongoing struggle with bronchitis. They played the final two nights, Friday and Saturday, March 21 and 22, without Allman.
