Huh... uh... intersting.

Also, Paul Gilbert > Richie Kotzen (I don't actually know who Richie Kotzen is, but y'know... Paul Gilbert pretty much owns every other human anyway).

Racer X and Mr. Big were never good. According to the book of Awesomeness (3:16).

Just because a member of the Mars Volta was in another band doesn't mean it's good. De Facto SUCKED, and so does Free Moral Agents.

That is of course my own opinion.

Uh... I wasn't really saying that because of Alderete (who is a very good bassist while we're on the subject). I was actually just talking about Gilbert himself, but whatever.

P.S.: If you don't think Paul Gilbert is good, well uh, just try playing some of his Racer X songs like Scarified and Technical Difficulties. You might have a give it more than one try.

Most interesting indeed. I have always liked Gundam music so hearing it redone by these people should be worth the listen

Okay between this and a thread involving Devo, alot of people I'd either assumed were dead/retired keep getting mentioned around here lately.

I agree with you! But their last album with Kotzen, Actual Size wasn't too bad. Anyway, this sounds interesting! I'll have to look into it when I get the oppurtunity!
