“The type of thing I do is not simple music,” Marty Friedman says. But, he adds, “it should be simple to enjoy.”

As if to illustrate that point, the guitarist has put together a new release, One Bad M.F. Live!! that goes a long way toward demonstrating just how enjoyable the onstage Friedman experience can be. Recorded at an April 14, 2018, gig at Centro Cultural in Mexico City, the album finds Friedman blasting through tracks from his solo shred career, in particular from his last two albums, 2014’s Inferno and 2017’s Wall of Sound
