That show has been on for almost 10 years now. I always like when John 5 is on.
Something intelligible. Clear notes and/or chords with some expression and technique.They give them 10 seconds to rip before a commercial break, what do you expect them to play in so little time?
This is my impression of the show as well. Can't stand the hosts, and the dumb games they play. Most of the guests on the show have had pretty interesting lives, it would be cool to get a good interviewer on there to get a little more in depth.I wish it was. It's a much better show. Right now it's Jersey guys with low brow humor who think hard rock never got better than UFO and Kiss.
I don't think they've got EVH on there, but they did get Yngwie and Michael Schenker. The guests guitarist are very impressive.I used to always see John 5 at NAMM with a crowd around him, waiting for autographs. I had no idea who he was or even his name until I saw him play on TMS. I was well impressed. When the hell are they gonna get EVH on there?
I'm pretty sure that was Tom Keifer from Cinderella. I thought he did a fine job. I agree with many of these posts that John 5, Steve Stevens, Joel Hoelkstra, Billy Sheehan, and Frank Hannon were highlights. Oh yeah, and Yngwie brought the fookin fury too.I mentioned the show I just watched where the guy was playing the Trussart.
