    Probably my biggest influence as a player. He builds and mods his own gear. He mostly relies on a preamp he built himself and runs it into a solid state power amp. Theres a ton of info in the link Karmadave gave. I'm a member of that forum also. Ask a question... and FRANK answers it!! And to quote a phrase that applies... He did it his way.

    GREAT, unique player!
    ("Very Rock Melodic" -? Not sure what that means, but I sure wouldn't rope Marino in w/ the "melodic rock" brethren - w/ all due respect, guitarman1956)

    Real Live is one of the best live albums (CDs) to released in some time.

    Is that the double live released in the early 80's or the new live release? I have double live, not sure if I've heard Real Live. If not, i'm sure it's awesome.

    RWE333, I agree to a point. Sure he's known as a super fast pentatonic guy but he goes into fusion jazz and blues where he does display his melodic side. An example would be Poppy or tales of the unexpected.

    I could go on for days about Frank. He always had a killer band too.

    It's a newer release(post 2000), and fantastic. I saw him last year and he was mind blowing, with monster tone. He uses gear that for the most part he built or tweaked(preamp and modded Marshall, along with a solid state power amp).

    I remember listening to Land of 1000 Nights in high school, and realizing that anything was possible with a guitar, amp and studio.

    I think you have Frank Marino and Mahogany Rush Live (1978)...I played it to death.

    Love listening to Frank Marino he's one of the best I have seen, I got to see him once back in the day when he opened up for Ted Nugent at the Boston Garden....probably the late 70's!

    It is absolutely fabulous to see Frank Marino championed here at TGP.
    He has my very best wishes, and so do you FM fans.

    For pure melodic phrasing with a nod to blues, jazz, fusion and straight out off the cuff strident soloing..Frank has few peers.

    One of the best guitarists alive, as far as I'm concerned.
