:::Erotic Cakes:::

Posted: Thursday, 24 July 2008 by jazzlover in Etykiety:

"Erotic Cakes" is a listening and inspirational jewel. Guthrie's exquisite playing will undoubtedly become the benchmark for Guitar. Equally Seth Govan and Pete Riley have raised the bar with their Bass and drum virtuosity. The performances here are truly amazing. The one thing that will separate this recording from the mainstream is the musicality of the song writing and the production.
Here are some kind words about Guthrie from some amazing players we really respect and whos music we love.

Joe Satriani:
Totally freakin awesome!!! this CD put a grin on my face a mile wide.

Richie Kotzen:
Guthrie Govan can do anything he wants as a guitarist. He has total command over the instrument; I love to watch Guthrie live as he always plays something new that the rest of us would never have thought of. He is truly a gifted musician and I am honored to be a part of Guthrie's 1st album. (Guest solo from Richie on "Ner Ner")

Greg Howe:
Guthrie is a brilliant guitarist whose super high level of proficiency does not seem to be limited to any one particular genre or style

Dweezil Zappa:
Every time I hear Guthrie play I feel like I have to fasten my seatbelt. He is an alien. His technique and execution is staggering. Ultimately what is most impressive about him is his musicality. He has total freedom on guitar...


Rob Balducci:
Guthrie is the most versatile guitarist/musician I have ever heard. His music reaches new heights and he can be one scary technical monster or be the sweetest thing you tasted.

Bumblefoot, a.k.a. Ron Thal:
I've known Guthrie since the days before email, when we'd write each other trading riffs. In the past years, we'd have long jams at NAMM conventions in California, and gigged together in the UK. And for all these years, I, and the rest of the world-wide guitar community have harassed him incessantly to please please release a full-length CD. Well, he's done it, and it's inspiring and mind-blowing and beautiful, as expected. Guthrie is the most-talented guitarist I've ever known,a great friend, and I'm honored to havecontributed to his album. Thank you Guthrie, for the wonderful music and all you are. (Guest solo from Ron on "Rhode Island Shred")

Doug Aldrich:
"I just recieved Guthie's new record Erotic Cakes and I am floored! Its been a long time since I heard playing and a record that cool. Amazing songs and sick playing from the whole band on every track. The song Waves is on my daily playlist now. Its one of those melodies that you wont forget and you will crave to hear again and again. I had the pleasure to meet Guthrie on tour in '05 and aside from being one of the most gifted players I have heard, he is just a top guy. Nice one Guthrie!....Thank you bro!"

Steve Stevens:
"Steve Stevens salutes you." For a whole new generation of geetar players...Guthrie's got the ball and he's off and running with that sucker!

Reb Beach:
“The 'Erotic Cakes' CD is excellent. It doesn't get much better than that, does it? I stopped trying to improve years ago because of people like him. I love his melodies, which is rare for me when I hear other guitarists: so effortless.
He is the most well rounded yet stunning guitarist I've ever heard.

Lyle Workman:
"Guthrie is an unbelievable guitarist, especially in light of his depth as a musician who is clearly inspired by various genres, harmony and rhythm extending far beyond technique-driven guitar music. The man is cooking with a lot of ingredients. He is supremely gifted and simply astounding. Once again, I have been reduced to guitar OWNER."

Brett Garsed:
"An amazing debut! I can't wait to see where Guthrie will go with future projects as I'm sure it'll be a great and unpredictable ride!"

    With all respect!
    Come on man, what is this fuss about? We both are contributing in something called collective inteligence(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collective_intelligence).
    Therefore, music you posted is not "yours" as well as pictures and info.
    I suggest, you spend some time relaxing and chilling out to think over what you can consider as "yours". Sometimes we need to look from a distance to ballanced ourselves out and get fresh view on things ans stuff.
    Take it easy Dude!
    Best Regards!
