An unlikely yet awesome collaboration on Lost Symphony III. From my name, and an owner/player of the Washburn N4 signatures (Padauk & Vintage), no secret that Nuno Bettencourt is my greatest influence of all-time and I am relishing this. Album is due for release on July 9th, and will also feature Jeff Loomis and Angel Vivaldi among others. Marty and Alex are gods to me as well, so seeing this happen is a joy. I'm not so familiar with Richard Shaw or Oli Herbert whom this is a memorial for, so apologies in advance for that.

Just listened to this yesterday.  Very nice collaboration from top notch guitar players. These guys could easily make their own version of a G3 type tour.  :metal
 
I wonder why some guitar players feel the need to paint their fingernails black?  Bettencourt and Hammett come to mind..  ???
You can do a lot in a lifetime if you don't burn out too fast, you can make the most of the distance, first you need endurance first you've got to last....... NP

LOL the black nail polish. I know Nuno has done that since Pornograffitti. If I remember correctly it had something to do with either a homage to Queen or seeing his finger positions on the fretboard better when gigging. At the end of the day that's rockstars for you. Fearlessly wearing cosmetics the mere mortals wouldn't or selling them to us. Whether its Cover Girl or interplanetary beard oils for the unkempt amongst us.  :laugh: :laugh:

Perhaps Nuno took it to Extreme levels and slammed his fingernails in a car door instead of using black nail polish..  :eek
