Attention, Orianthi fans! The Women's International Music Network is giving you the opportunity to bid on a rare piece of rock and roll memorabilia: a Paul Reed Smith Orianthi Signature guitar autographed by the queen of shred herself.
Today, GuitarWorld.com presents the exclusive premiere of a new video featuring Walter Trout. In the video, the venerable blues guitarist discusses his new album, Luther’s Blues: A Tribute to Luther Allison, which will be released June 11 by Mascot Label Group's Provogue Records.
Nineteen hundred and seventy-three is one of those rare years — like, say, 1968, 1969, 1971 and 1991 — that saw the release of an impressive assortment of seminal rock albums. As we wrote two years ago in our 1971 roundup, "Even for a year that falls squarely in the heart of the 'classic rock' era, it was a particularly classic year."
Yes have announced their first-ever rock festival — Yestival — which will take place August 3 at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, New Jersey. The band, which will be performing 1971's The Yes Album and 1972's Close to the Edge in their entirety, will be joined by the Musical Box, Renaissance featuring Anne Haslam, Carl Palmer's ELP Legacy and other acts (TBA).
