Back in 2014, Paul McCartney had a great idea for an album. He just needed a world-renowned guitarist and singer to make it happen. Enter John Pizzarelli, whose musical interpretations of such legendary artists as Frank Sinatra, James Taylor and McCartney’s former band, the Beatles, have received critical acclaim. Pizzarelli even worked with McCartney on his 2012 album, Kisses on the Bottom.
The Beatles were such talented songwriters that it’s easy to overlook the fact that their music has some great—and occasionally groundbreaking—guitar work. With that in mind, Guitar World celebrated the 10 best guitar moments from the band's hit-making history.
Paul McCartney has premiered a newly remastered version of "Take It Away," a track from his 1982 album, Tug of War. The song, which also was released as a single, features Ringo Starr (and Steve Gadd) on drums and was produced by Beatles producer George Martin, as was the rest of Tug of War.
Phish guitarist and singer Trey Anastasio has announced a new solo album, Paper Wheels. The album, his first solo studio offering in three years, will be released October 30. Recorded last year with co-producer Bryce Goggin, this is Anastasio’s 10th solo album so far. You can check out the complete Paper Wheels track listing below.
David Gilmour, who used to be a member of Pink Floyd, has premiered his new cover of the Beatles' “Here, There and Everywhere." The guitarist's faithful cover of this Revolver track will appear—exclusively—in the new issue of Mojo magazine, which happens to feature Gilmour on its cover.
The guys in Blessthefall have posted a new "in the studio" update for their new album, To Those Left Behind. You can check out the video, which features Blessthefall's Beau Bokan, Eric Lambert, Matt Traynor, Elliott Gruenberg and Jared Warth, below.
