Check out this energy-packed video of Pantera's classic "Cowboys From Hell" performed as a violin and cello duet. The title track of Pantera's fifth album, "Cowboys From Hell" was the band's first single. Here violinist Rachel Barton Pine and cellist Mike Block play Rachel's arrangement of "Cowboys From Hell" for a faculty concert at Mark O'Connor's Strings Conference in San Diego.
I recently stopped in at the Fillmore to check out the fabulous lads in Noah and The Whale. While I was drawn in by the charisma and talent of the entire band, it was violinist Tom Hobden that really caught my eye. Hobden often took the role as the lead player, playing memorable riffs with dramatic flare.
