    I was not expecting that! I am wondering if I like it or not, no doubt about the talent though...

    Feels like a hostage video, waiting for one of them to hold up a newspaper.

    Wow....technical chops they got.
    All seems rather joyless though.... Anyone have any idea of what piece they are playing? I'd like to know. So, if I ever saw it in the program nots of a concert, I could save some money by not buying a ticket. My hats off to the guys for all the impressive hard work and practice time they have put in ! I am impressed by just the memorization of the (to my ear) confusing score.

    The piece is "The Dog's Bollocks," "the first electric symphony in history". Nice name for a piece.

    Hmmmmmm... didn't Frank Zappa compose some symphonies with electric instruments?

    I think they are also practicing saying "Orchestral Junior Master" and "Gibson Les Paul Tenorblaster."

    Personally I would rather hear them play without so much distortion. I know they have a special pedal board to imitate the brass section of an orchestra but I have never heard brass sections sound that distorted.

    Is this sponsored by Gibson. Very strange.
