Behind the scenes of Devin Townsend's 'Deconstruction'

Behind the scenes of Devin Townsend's Deconstruction. Devin says "This is a record I have been working up to for some time, and while doing it, I realize that not only am I in control of it (totally) but that this newfound control allows me to take it to places I would have never been able to a decade ago. I pretty much believe that this will be one of our finest hours, and although there is some funny moments, it's a pretty 'pointed' record (if ya know what I mean)...
Anyways, any stuff you hear on these clips are either demos with drum machine, scratch vocals and demo guitars etc... but at least it illustrates the process in the beginning."



[Video] Light Years Away - Joe Satriani

Satriani's 14th studio album, Black Swans and Wormhole Wizards, was produced and recorded by Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Metallica) and Satriani. Joe is joined once again by veteran bandmate Jeff Campitelli on drums, and newcomers, keyboardist Mike Keneally (Frank Zappa, Steve Vai) and bassist Allen Whitman (Mermen) also adding to the sound. The first single from the album was Light Years Away.

3 Fingerstle Legends Unite Onstage - Emmanuel, Mckee, Jung

Tommy Emmanuel, Andy McKee and Sungha Jung meet onstage to play Ebony Coast. An amazing meeting of guitarists Im sure you will agree!

To tell the truth though it looks like there was no rehearsal of any kinda so the guys float around without any clear direction. Tthe only time anyone really takes the bull by the horns is Tommy for his solo at 1:30. Regardless great to see these guys onstage together.
