Win A Ticket To Extreme Guitar @ B.B. King’s On 2/8/2015

Poster - Extreme Guitar at BB Kings - 2015

The Details: Uli Jon Roth is a certified master of the electric guitar and while most heard of him first from the legendary Scorpions he has been on an incredible solo journey for decades. For this year’s visit to our side of the Atlantic, he has assembled fellow greats of string in Vinnie Moore (UFO) and Craig Goldy (Dio/House Of Lords) and will deliver The Extreme Guitar show. This is going to be nothing less than an educational experience for anyone that has picked up a guitar and I am stoked that thanks to the fine folks at B.B. King’s Marketing, that PiercingMetal will be putting several fans into the show for free as a part of our second great contest for this music year of 2015. Read more below.

When and Where: Sunday, February 8th @ B.B. King Blues Club (237 West 42nd St. NYC)

To Participate: Since there are three incendiary guitar players I am going to ask to give me three reasons that Uli Roth is a must see guitar player in your humble opinion and of course give me one more about either Craig or Vinnie for good measure. Make them good because this is a hot giveaway and there are not a lot of tickets to dish out.

  1. 1) Uli Jon Roth was in the 70s version of Scorpions which, in my opinion, is actually better than the more well known 80s Scorpions. All the Scorps records that Uli is on are excellent….Fly To the Rainbow down to Taken By Force ( and don’t forget godly live album Tokyo Tapes). Would love a Scorps reunion with Uli but i am definitely in a minority as far as that is concerned.
    2) I am also a big fan of Uli’s Electric Sun efforts. Very Hendrix influenced and not as commercially accessible as those Scorpions records. Being a guitar player myself, i found these records very influencing.
    3) Uli had to be as close to the sprit of Hendrix as possible that he dated the girlfriend Jimi was with at the time of his death. How cool is that?

    4) Craig Goldy had the hard task of replacing Vivian Campbell on DIO’s Sacred Heart tour. Guess what? He exceeded with flying colors. Apparently Ronnie James Dio rescued Goldy from homelessness by letting him join his band. He continues the legacy of Dio today by performing in Dio Disciples.

    1. Congratulations Phil, you have won a ticket to see this Extreme Guitar extravaganza. Please stay tuned for the comment I make that closes the contest and lines out the details for the winners to follow. This is going to Rock for sure.

  2. 1. Uli Jon Roth is in my opinion a top 5 guitarist ever, hearing him play is nothing short of magical.

    2. Uli helped shape the sound and character of Scorpions, one of my favorite bands.

    3. Uli is not getting any younger and the day when he’ll hang it up will come soon, so I wouldn’t miss an opportunity to see him live (especially as the last time he had to cancel the tour because of visa issues)

    4. Vinnie Moore is another fine guitarist that brought something very refreshing to the sound and live performances of UFO. I am glad he is on the same bill with Uli.

    1. Uli was my favorite Scorpions period for music.

      Vinny Moore is amazing as a fusion guitarist.

      Available to go ( Howie too).

  3. 1. Want to get Scorpions reworked. Hope he has it at show.
    2. Never saw a bad Uli show. AU contraire. ALL HAVE BEEN SUPERLATIVE.
    3. STEAMROCK FEVER, which he won’t play.
    4. Vinnie Moore. Love him in UFO. Hopefully great solo.
    5. Goldy is friends w/ V from Benedictum

  4. Uli Jon Roth was in my favorite version of The Scorpions. Uli is arguably the father of neoclassical metal guitar. Uli’s tone is the best of Hendrix mixed with a futuristic classical conception. I saw Craig Goldy with Dio in the 80’s. He’s a master guitarist that fell under the radar. I would love to hear what he’s doing almost 30 years later. Vinny Moore is another master shredder!, These three together is an incredible combination!

    1. Congratulations Larry, you have won a ticket to see this Extreme Guitar extravaganza. Please stay tuned for the comment I make that closes the contest and lines out the details for the winners to follow. This is going to Rock for sure.
