Paul Gilbert Recommended Steve Howe Replacement To Asia

(Classic Rock) New Asia guitarist Sam Coulson says replacing Steve Howe hasn't changed him. The 26-year-old guitarist, who was hired after Howe surprised fans by announcing his departure in January, has vowed to remain true to his predecessor's approach although he'll apply his own character to the music.

In a recent web chat with fans Coulson says: "Steve has a great classical-style vibrato which sounds great. My own method has always been the sort of Eric Clapton approach, moving the string more horizontally. I feel technical changes like this will give the band perhaps a heavier edge.

He reveals he got the job after Asia had asked Paul Gilbert to consider taking it. "Paul put my name forward," he explains. "When he told me, I was over the moon." more on this story
