Contrary to what you may have seen in the film Deliverance, bluegrass music is more than a bunch of good ol' boys picking banjos and clogging on the porch. It’s a style that boasts some of the most impressive instrumental musicians and guitarists of any genre.
Escape the Fate was formed in 2004. Guitarist Bryan Monte Money, vocalist Ronnie Radke, bassist Max Green, drummer Robert Ortiz and rhythm guitarist Omar Espinosa met through mutual bands in preceding years.
As lead guitarist for Sixx:A.M., DJ Ashba has played for thousands of fans worldwide. The band’s first album, The Heroin Diaries, launched them to success with “Life Is Beautiful,” radio’s most-played rock song in 2008. Their recently released sophomore disc, This Is Gonna Hurt, is likely to surpass its predecessor, having already charted a No. 1 rock single, “Lies of the Beautiful People.”
When you think of albums from 1982, it's difficult not to think of that certain "biggest-selling album of all time." But, of course, that was a pop record, and although it contains one of guest guitarist Eddie Van Halen's most celebrated solos, Michael Jackson's Thriller isn't exactly what guitar fans gush over when they look back to 29 years ago.
