Delta Rose

Delta Rose! That is the band that I am hoping that you already know by now. We featured them last year during our Golden Gods Awards Coverage, Warped Tour Featured band as well as them being our Day 5  of our 12 Days of Bands You Have to Know. So I am hoping you have been paying close attention and are already familiar with these bad ass rockers… Delta Rose!

These guys not only bring the old school rock and roll back to life with their young vibrant personalities but are also one of the hardest working bands on the scene.  They are not only busy playing shows all over Southern California but we even caught them performing at the Gibson booth during NAMM 2014.  They are an awesome band  that you can’t help but fall in love with them.

Last weekend, we headed down to see Delta Rose perform at Lara Gladstone’s Gutter n Grind event at the Troubadour. This would be the first time we were able to catch a full set from one of our favorite bands. Well, let me tell you, we have seen 26 bands perform since the first of the year, and Delta Rose just might take home our top honor of BEST PERFORMANCE FOR 2014! It is going to be really hard for a band to impress us as much as Delta Rose has.  They have an incredible energy, magnetic stage presence and they can ROCK!

Last year we brought you an interview with Delta Rose in front of The Viper Room and this time we got to catch up with the guys after their amazing performance at The Troubadour. Check it out here:

 

In case you haven’t watched their highly entertaining Epiphone videos, head over and check them out here:  Epiphone Vlogs here.  Also make sure to check out the KICK ASS Tribute Video that Rockin Ryan put together with footage and photos of their set at The Troubadour:

 

You can also check out a slide show of the photos of the night by Rockin Ryan:

Now that I got you all revved up and ready to rock, head over to their social media sites and Like Em, Follow them, Buy Them, See them Live, etc. Also if you are in the SoCal area make sure to head out to their upcoming concerts and show them some Delta Rose love! You will definitely agree that they put on the Best Live Show. We are hoping that they take home LA Weekly’s top honors for Best Live Band in LA! Hope you all got those votes in!

This is it! Our last day of 12 Days of Guitarists and it goes to  none other than the MOST BAD ASS GUITARIST…… Zakk Wylde!!!  Zakk shreds like no other!!!

Zakk has been very busy this year. He released with Black Label Society, “Unblackened”, the new live DVD/Blue Ray and CD.  The double disk release not only featured a stripped down approach to all the classic hits like “Stillborn,” “The Blessed Hellride,” “In This River,” “Throwin’ It All Away,” “Losin’ Your Mind,”  but fierce guitar solos that you love from Zakk. There is also bonus material that includes photo gallery, music video and Interview with Zakk.  Make sure to pick up your copy to add to your Zakk Wylde collection.

Zakk also teamed up with Death Wish Coffee to bring you their newest addition, Valhalla Java!! This is the kind of the coffee that you need after one of those nights when you think nothing can wake you up! Death Wish Coffee Co. known as The Responsible Coffee Company with an Irresponsible Product Try at Your Own Risk! Check out this fun video about the new coffee:

 

Black Label Society have been busy working in Zakk‘s home studio, The Black Vatican, on their new album! Zakk mentions that the new Black Label Society album should be out in April 2014 and will include more of the heavy-riffing Les Paul-roaring that Black Label Society is known for.

Zakk is amazing with his blistering licks and most notably about his style is his huge vibrato! He has lightning speed and precision alternate picking style. You can try to emulate Zakk‘s guitar playing style, but he  has so  many tricks in  his bag, you will never come close to his AMAZING guitar work!!!

Zakk also came up here to EMG to celebrate their 25th anniversary with Zakk Wylde and the release of Metal Works. To celebrate EMG released a Zakk Wylde Limited Edition Set. We ran in to Zakk when he was up here at EMG and the boys had a great time talking with him.  Check out the picture of Rockin Ryan and Brandon here with him.

Check out the release video here for the EMG pickups from earlier this year:

 

Now let’s kick back with a cup of Valhalla Java, play some songs from Unblackened and dream about the new Black Label Society album and tour!  I will leave you with a couple music videos from Zakk‘s visit to EMGtv which includes an acoustic performance by Zakk of Lovin Woman and another of his smokin solo work over an Andy James track provided by Jam Central Track.

Enjoy, Marisol
