MICHAEL ANGELO BATIO's 'Double Guitar' On Display At Blue Rock Guitars in Iowa

November 3, 2005

World-renowned progressive rock guitarist Michael Angelo Batio's famed Dean Mach 7 Jet Double guitar (photo) will be on display at Blue Rock Guitars in Perry, Iowa on a promotional tour to celebrate the release of Batio's "Hand without Shadows" CD. The display also coincides with the Dean Owners of America (DOA) Midwest meeting 2005. The Double Jet will be on display until November 13.

As previously reported, "Hands without Shadows" features guest appearances by legendary heavy metal bassist Rudy Sarzo (QUIET RIOT, OZZY OSBOURNE, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, DIO) and Doug Marks (man behind the Metal Method series of instructional videos for guitar).

"Hands without Shadows" or "HWS" (M.A.C.E. Records) is Michael's most ambitious work to date featuring additional guest appearances by Mark Tremonti of ALTER BRIDGE and CREED, and virtuoso guitarist Bill Peck, and more. Bobby Rock (VINNIE VINCENT INVASION, NELSON) played drums on the entire CD. The primary bassist William Kopecky is a six-string and fretless virtuoso. Chris Djuricic engineered and mixed the CD, Dean Guitars graphic designer Stephen Jensen designed the "HWS" artwork and the disc was mastered by Trevor Sadler.

"HWS" is a blend of Michael's own originals and classic covers requested by his fans. Michael's unique guitar tone and technical abilities are prominent throughout the entire CD while featuring guest performances from the above mentioned "master musicians." The title track "Hands without Shadows" promises to be his new signature song with a feel and skill level that listeners have come to expect and enjoy from Michael Angelo Batio.

Tracks on the CD include "Burn" (DEEP PURPLE),"Zeppelin Forever" (described as "a LED ZEPPELIN medley like no other"),"Wherever I May Roam" (METALLICA),"Pray On, Prey", "Tribute to Randy" (Ozzy with Randy Rhoads),"Dream On" (AEROSMITH),"All Along the watchtower" (Jimi Hendrix-inspired) and more!
