PAUL GILBERT To Appear On VH1's 'Hottest Pets'

On Monday, October 23, guitarist Paul Gilbert (RACER X, ex-MR. BIG) will be appearing on the new VH1 show called "Hottest Pets". "I can't get on TV by playing guitar, but I can get on playing with my alligator lizard," jokes Gilbert.

Paul Gilbert recently released his new all-guitar instrumental CD, entitled "Get Out Of My Yard". He commented, "There is more concentrated guitar power on this CD than any I have done. More screaming solos, more thunderous riffs, more wall-shaking chords, more imagination, more passion, more, more, more!

"'Get Out Of My Yard' was recorded in Los Angeles. I played electric guitar, acoustic guitar, and bass. Jeff Bowders played drums. Mike Szuter played bass on tracks 8, 10, and 11. My wife Emi played piano on track 6 and Hammond organ on track 8. Tom Size engineered and mixed.

"The first 38 seconds of 'Get Out Of My Yard' are impossible to play. But I played them.'

Gilbert recently teamed up with DREAM THEATER drummer Mike Portnoy, Billy Sheehan (MR. BIG, DAVID LEE ROTH, TALAS) and Gary Cherone (VAN HALEN, EXTREME) to pay tribute to THE WHO by playing three very special shows across America.
