Al Pitrelli

August 24, 2017

Al Pitrelli is known for his incredible guitar work with a myriad of groups including Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Megadeth, Alice Cooper, Joe Lynn Turner, Asia and Savatage.

What you may not know is that one of his first recordings was with Kathy Troccoli in 1991 and continued on his path recording with Asia, Expose, Taylor Dayne, and Widowmaker the following year.

While Dirty D was chatting with Phil during Memphis Metal Mondays, they got a phone call from Al Pitrelli while he was out towards the end of his last Trans-Siberian Orchestra tour (December 2016) and wound up discussing how this musical-director-extraordinaire got his start in the business and about his on-going career and influences plus what advice he would give to the up and coming artists.

In case you missed it catch the conversation right here.
