Former Guns N' Roses Manager Discovers New Act on YouTube

(Rock AAA) Alan Niven admits he wasn't interested when his wife Heather told him to check out an up and coming guitarist showing off his skills on YouTube, but it only took one look at Chris Buck's clip to realise he was seeing something special.

The ex-Guns N' Roses manager is now the star-maker behind up and coming blues rockers the Tom Hollister Trio and their remarkable opportunity is all down to the viral video site. After spotting the teenager's potential, Niven was also blown away by the vocals of Tom Hollister, who joined Buck in his Abercarn bedroom. The pair soon joined forces as a band with drummer Adam Roberts, and were signed up by the man who helped steer Gn'R to the top of the rock n' roll world.

In an exclusive interview with RockAAA, Niven revealed the Trio have been working on their debut album with legendary producer Chris Kimsey and will be heading back to America next month, but he says they won't be rushing their work.
