Kim Monroe’s Music Minute September 5th

Whitesnake’s self-titled album turns 30 this year.  In honor of the ocassion, “Whitesnake: Super Deluxe Edition” will be available in early October.  The album has been remastered and included live and studio recordings, videos a new interview with singer David Coverdale and more.  A teaser trailer is available on line now.

So, if you have ever wondered what Maynard James Keenan does when he’s not working with Tool, or A Perfect Circle or Puscifer, he can be found in Jerome, Arizona.  The singer and author keeps himself busy making wine from his very own Caduceus Cellars vineyard.  He said that if he were just doing music, he would run out of actual life experiences.

If you are going to cover a song, it’s best to make it your own!  And that is exactly what Russian pianist Ron Minis did with the Metallica classic “Master Of Puppets.”  Minis wanted to play guitar but his parents insisted on piano, so he pretty much turned his piano into a guitar.
