This is due to, in no small part, the band’s bark being twice as vicious as their bark. But with 48:13, the bark has been reduced to a whimper and they […]

Stairway: A Masterpiece or Socially Unacceptable?

As a guitarist, it is ridiculously cliché to sit down and play “Stairway to Heaven” by Led Zeppelin… or even reference it, for that matter.
