“Secondhand Smoke – A Tribute to Frank Marino” CD Officially Released
Frank Marino, the 70’s rock guitar guru from the band “Mahogany Rush” has long been held in high regard by his peers for many years and now they get a chance to prove it. The mere mention of his name to many of the world’s top guitarists like Steve Vai, Zakk Wylde, Marty Friedman, Steve Lukather, Paul Gilbert, Ronnie Montrose and George Lynch will evoke the responses of “Amazing”, “Phenomenal”, “Un-copyable”, “Relentless”, “Legend” and of course “Superhuman”!
This Frank Marino tribute CD features 10 tracks from 10 top guitarists such as Ronnie Montrose, George Lynch, Jennifer Batten, Rick Ray, Jeff Cloud, Audley Freed, James Byrd, Karl Cochran, Randy Hansen and John Norum. The uniqueness of this tribute is that each artist was given full reign over their selected track and not by just throwing a solo over some backing track. What you hear is their version from start to finish. The music varies from Rock to Jazz to Symphonic Metal to Tribal Rock and all points in between.
Secondhand Smoke – A Tribute to Frank Marino, is an internet release only and it is available now at WildMess Records (www.wildmess.com
