Michael Angelo Batio
Interviewed by EvilG
Thanks to: Lord of the Wasteland for providing extra interview questions, Drew for hooking us up, and to Deb for making the interview happen.
Just about every metal guitarist knows at least something about Michael Angelo Batio. He is best known for his twin-necked, left and right-handed double-guitar which he both invented and was the first to play. This ambidextrous virtuoso is not just a one trick wonder however. He is arguably the fastest guitar player you’ll ever hear and when he wants to, can play some slow yet engaging leads. Non-guitar freaks might remember Michael from his stint with the outrageous band Nitro which seems to have garnered the band a sort of cult-like and legendary status. In this interview we talk to Michael about his new solo album, HANDS WITHOUT SHADOWS, guitar playing, Nitro, and more.
