    Racer X




    01-17-2009 20:00 at NAMM Show 2009
    Sheraton Park Ballroom, Anaheim, California 92802

    As announced on the racerxband.com website, Racer X will be playing their first live show in the US since May 2001.

    Unfortunately, it will be a private showing for Ibanez, so hopefully you know somebody, who knows somebody, who knows a cousin, who knows someone at Ibanez. Good luck!

    yeah that was sick!

    I have the Technical Difficulties CD and MY GOD IT ROCKS! Paul Gilbert is the most underated metal guitarist out there. He can be as heavy as anybody out there if he wanted to and the difference would be that it would sound more musical than anybody else. I also think that of Zakk. His riffs arent heavy for the sake of being heavy but heavy in a musical way. Its raw talent.

    Umm, isn't the purpose of a headset mic to NOT have to use your hands to hold it???

    Anyways, yes, these guys do rock pretty hard. I like the whole package...

    Gilbert is very underrated, just started geting into his stuff in the last few years (other than Mr big , which I love).

    He has some great lessons on you tube and seems like a great guy and a funny mofo.

    I've seen some of those lessons on youtube, good stuff. This will definitely sound gay, but his pinky finger is really long. wtf? It looks the length of his ring or middle finger.

    Paul's GREAT. His website is one of my all-time faves. He's got the best sense of humor. It'd be awesome to hang with the guy for a bit and shoot the shit.

    Oh, man. I LOVE Racer X. I remember reading an article somewhere in high school that proclaimed them "the next Van Halen". I ordered Street Lethal from the Shrapnel ads that were always in Hit Parader and the guitar magazines, and I was hooked.

    Back when Mr. Big was popular with To Be With You, I'd pop in Racer X for friends and they couldn't believe it was the same guitarist.

    ...just...don't...get...me...started. Period.

    One of the two MOST UNDERRATED "common" guitarists of all time, imo, along with the Reverend Willie Gibbons.

    I think I'd sell my soul for only 5% of EACH of their talents.

    Across the spectrum (talent, humor, personality), two of the coolest cats to ever strap on a six-string.

    Nah, not really. Have you seen Ed's pinky finger? Same thing. Anyway, Paul Gilbert can shred. Great guitarist.

    Those vocal lines don't age as well as the guitar licks, do they?
    A 45-year old man singing those high notes looks a little...well...not as cool as it used to be.

    Yeah, that's pretty gay. Looking at another man's pinky.

    Paul is a really big guy, for a guitar player, and he's got big hands. Most guitarists seem to be shrimps.
