Axe-Bangers: The Guitarist Showcase
A Profile Report Featuring Some Of The World's Most Talented, Accomplished & Upcoming Players.
David T. Chastain
Somewhere around 30! Time flies when you are rocking!!
All it seems. Metal, Hard Rock, Fusion, Blues Rock, Acoustic and Improvisational. All with the David T. slant to it.
Karmer guitars through either a Marshall Valvestate with Marshall cabs or recently I have been using a POD for recording.
Kramer guitars and Dimarzio pick ups although on the new Kramer guitars they have quadrails and seymour duncan pick ups.
Over 50 Cds released is my main accomplishment. (http://www.leviathanrecords.com/chasdisc.htm) Have toured around the world and of course extensively in the US. (Everywhere from someone's garage to the major arenas) Appeared in nearly every rock/metal magazine around the world. (Except Rolling Stone!!) Video aired on MTV numerous times in the 90s. Owner/operator of 2 record companies. Producer for bands such as Firewind, Vainglory, Kenziner and others. Cool instructional video.
Never had to wear a suit and tie to work. Never ran over a cat in my car.(My main goal in life to accomplish.)
CURRENT & UPCOMING PROJECTS:
Next up is the new SOUTHERN GENTLEMEN "Double Your Pleasure"
In the can and ready for release over the next 18 months:
Too many to mention but some that come to mind are Holdsworth, Uli Jon Roth, Rhoads, Trower, Hendrix, Billy Gibbons, Duane Allman, Jeff Kollman, Stevie Ray, etc.
MOST UNDERATED PLAYERS:
Joe Stump, Corbin King, Jeff Kollman, Michael Harris, Uli Jon Roth, Holdsworth and Angus Young.
BEST MUSICIAN YOU'VE EVER SEEN:
I guess Holdsworth. Hard to say. I don't go out much anymore!
FOUR WORDS THAT BEST DESCRIBES WHAT YOU WANT TO GET ACROSS IN YOUR PLAYING:
Original, classy and heavy.
I guess Hugh Hefner if he didn't run cigarette ads in Playboy. Of course I have to also say my father.
To be happy and to be able to continue to be involved in the music I believe in whether as a player, producer or record company.
