TONY MACALPINE On 'Rock Dogs' Internet Radio Show; Audio Available

Progressive guitar virtuoso Tony MacAlpine was a guest on the "Rock Dogs" Internet radio show this past Wednesday, October 1. You can now download the program as an MP3 audio file at this location.

MacAlpine began his musical education as a classically trained pianist and violinist. His subsequent rock recordings retained a pronounced classical influence, incorporating elements of jazz and fusion as well. He debuted in 1986 with the instrumental album "Edge of Insanity", recorded with an all-star lineup including bassist Billy Sheehan and ex-JOURNEY drummer Steve Smith.

For the follow-up, "Project: Driver", MacAlpine formed the band M.A.R.S. with drummer Tommy Aldridge, vocalist Bob Rock and bassist Rudy Sarzo. MacAlpine soon returned to his solo career, additionally forming his own label, Squawk.

DEVIL'S SLINGSHOT, the band featuring bass legend Billy Sheehan (STEVE VAI, DAVID LEE ROTH, MR. BIG), Tony MacAlpine and Virgil Donati, released its new album, "Clinophobia", on October 22, 2007 via Mascot Records.
