Interview Paul Gilbert (@PaulGilbertRock)

Une super-star de la guitare électrique dans cet épisode avec Paul Gilbert, un musicien qu'on ne présente plus et dont le talent n'a d'égal que la passion pour l'instrument.

Un grand merci à Olivier de Replica Records qui m'a permi de profiter de cette opportunité.

Quelques photos prises par mes soins:

Le matos de Billy Sheehan (impressionant hein??) :
Ma chronique en anglais du concert publiée sur le blog de Jenn (http://metalichicka.wordpress.com/):

  • Le Bataclan is a nice venue in Paris, not too big (cap. around 1500 people) with a clear view of the scene from all the places (standing or seated).
  • Solid performance right from the start with a nice build up of the energy toward the end.
  • As expected from such great musicians, the band sounds very tight.
    Paul’s solo was good but even better was the double neck “duel” with Billy and his double neck bass. The piece they play together is not only incredibly impressive but, more important, very nice.
  • Billy’s solo was great but the bass sound at the venue did not do credit to his performance.
  • Really excellent last 30 minutes of the show with what seemed a surprise cover of Highway To Hell by Paul Gilbert doing all the singing. They did a shortened version of the song. The rest of the band, especially Eric and Billy seemed actually surprised about this.
  • Superb version of Baba O’Riley (The Who) as can be heard on the Back To Budokan live CD. This was the last song of the show if I am not mistaken.
  • Great singing from Eric Martin but also from all the band members. We can actually hear some really rich vocal harmonies with no articifial enhancement I was able to hear at least!
  • The crowd really loved the show and participated a lot.
