What I’m Listening To – Derek Sherinian

Hiya all!

It’s been a while since I last posted.

I thought I’d write about someone who featured on my last album.

Derek Sherinian is someone you might have heard without realizing it. He’s played with some of the biggest names in the industry, including Dream Thearet, Billy Idol, Alice Cooper, and Yngwie, just to name a few. What you might not have heard is his solo stuff. If you’re into guitar, then his solo material is certainly worth checking out.

 

His albums regularly feature stellar guitarists (Yngwie, Zakk Wylde, Steve Lukather, and so on), and killer playing. Just check out this song with traded solos between Zakk and Yngwie.

 

That’s quite heavy stuff but Derek also does mellow and fusion and all sorts of other things. Here’s a more mellow thing with one of my favourite guitarists, Steve Lukather.

 

Here’s one more, even more mellow.

 

There’s a lot more, so do check it out. I was lucky enough to get Derek to feature on my last album, and listening to him play on my song was the greatest feeling, since I was already a fan. Hope you enjoy the music. I know I do.

Cheers,

 

Elmo
