Alastair Greene started playing guitar at age 15. Originally inspired by Hard Rock guitarists such as Jimmy Page, Jake E Lee, and Eddie Van Halen, his life and musical course was altered when a friend loaned him B.B. King’s ‘Live At The Regal’, Buddy Guy’s ‘A Man and the Blues, and Stevie Ray Vaughan’s ‘Couldn’t Stand The Weather’. Alastair attended the Berklee College of music from 90-’92 and has since been performing and recording around Southern California since the early 90s. His playing can be heard on his own CDs as well as recordings by Alan Parsons (Alan’s 2004 release ‘A Valid Path’), drum legend Aynsley Dunbar, Mitch Kashmar (Delta Groove recording artist), Bad Astronaut, world renowned Blues guitarist Frank Goldwasser, as well as a number of CDs by many independent artists.
This is a LIVE CD from Winter of 2002 recorded direct to CD from the mixing board at an LA Club.
"We hadn't planned on releasing a Live Record, however after I listened to the recording of this show I felt that the overall sound, energy level, and playing would be enjoyed by anyone looking for some raw, live, blues-rock."
-From The Liner Notes
"Greene is a fantastic blues guitarist with a preference for less well-known material, But, even in the midst of legendary tunes, he stood out and depicted a signature classic-rock sound. In fact, he's so good, his mentors would certainly approve."
-Music Connection Magazine
"Alastair Greene is a guitarist I enjoy listening to. Over the years I watched his playing mature into a distinctive style many try to achieve which contains the fire of Texas Blues. You will enjoy both his music and his energy."
- Seymour Duncan
"Alastair's a great cat. One of the best young rocking blues guitarists
I've seen in a long time. Watch out for him."
- James Shane, Canned Heat
"Greene is a wonderful blues/rock player."
