(Rock Guitar Daily with Tony Conley ) Tony received a guided tour from producer Fabrizio Grossi of the Deep Purple classic track Highway Star as performed by Glenn Hughes, Steve Vai, Chad Smith, and Lauchlan Doley for the soon to be released Re-Machined: A Tribute To Deep Purple album.
Tony asked Fabrizio about tracking the guitars: "We recorded for, I would say about a couple days in total. All the guitars were done at the Melody Hut, Steve's new studio, which is nothing less than a guitar sanctuary! I love his work on this because it was respectful enough with Ritchie's landmarks parts, but able to turn the whole thing around and make it sound just like Vai.
"For long time I've wanted to hear him on a power vocal track, and this was just the confirmation of why I've always been drawn to his music. It's not just the guitar playing, but it's the overall orchestration concept of guitar overdubbing behind this man, that makes him who he is." Read the full interview here.
