Guitar Heroes #9 – Jake E Lee

by on Dec.03, 2008, under Guitar Heroes

This is Jake E Lee, Axemaster extraordinaire. His credentials include 80′s metal monsters Ratt and Rough Cut, as well as shredding it out for Ronnie James Dio and Badlands. He is probably most famous for salvaging Ozzy’s Diary of a Madman tour after Randy Rhodes untimely death. No small feat, filling those shoes. He stayed on with Ozzy and recorded the killer Bark at the Moon album. Without further ado, here’s Jake slaying them on a 1983 tour with Ozzy.

    This guy was WAY ahead of his time, and this is one of my favorite videos of him. He had the best sound, technique, and a very creative and intense guitar style.

    Your site is an excellent resourse and good “reading”. It strikes me as FUNNY how it seems like so many people are taken by the music craze these days. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s great. As the saying goes, “its a universal language”. It’s just funny to me at the number of people that are interested at becoming musicians. I’ve always been a guitarist. I think I was born playing but as a youngster, you just didn’t hear of alot of people playing instruments outside of the High School band format. We were out there (so to speak) but the number was few. These days, it seems like everybody you know either plays guitar OR they have a family member that plays. I love it! It brings so much more growth to it all for everybody. I just hope that the folks that are just getting involved with ANY instrument will realize this… You do NOT have to dive yourself insane learning music theory to get started playing good music, guitar licks, blues licks, solo’s etc. Theory has its place but in my opinion, it is NOT in the mind of a beginning (budding) musician. It tends to over-complicate things and discourage. My view is that if a person can be taught to make some cool music come out of an interest (and I’m not talking about playing something mundane and boring), they will generate excitement and a desire to learn more — including theory. Welcome all beginners. we all started at the beginning. Together we all grow as musicians. Jerry

    Finally, I located the information I was looking for. I have been doing research on this subject, and for two days I keep entering web-sites that are supposed to have what I’m searching for, only to be disappointed with the lack of what I needed. I wish I could have located your website sooner! I had about 30% of what I needed and your web-site has that, and the rest of what I need to complete my research. Thank you and I will report back on how it goes!

    If you are thinking of leaving a guitar like the one in the video in your will, then please consider me!

    Anything that includes the name Ozzy in music has gotta be good :)

  • das
