About Michael Angelo Batio
Batio was voted the "No. 1 Shredder of All Time" by Guitar One Magazine in 2003. He was also listed as one of the "Top 100 Greatest Metal Guitarists of All Time" by Guitar World Magazine, for which he writes the column Time to Burn, and one of the "20 Greatest Shredders of All Time" by Total Guitar Magazine, both in April 2008.
Batio is a self-taught ambidextrous, able to play two guitars at the same time either in synchronization or using separate harmonies, as shown when he plays his famous Double-Guitar. Though naturally left-handed, he plays as right-handed when playing one guitar. Batio invented the "Over-Under" technique, which involves flipping his fretting hand over and under the neck, playing the guitar both regularly and like a piano.
Batio taught guitarist Tom Morello (of Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave fame) while at college. Morello has credited MAB with teaching him in a feature article in Guitar World Magazine in 2005. Michael also gave lessons to guitarist Mark Tremonti after Creed broke up and Tremonti wanted to learn more techniques. Batio is also widely known for his rather unusual picking technique: He sweeps, using his thumb and pointing finger, with his three other fingers planted at the bottom of all six strings on the body of the guitar.
About Carmine Appice
Besides his meticulous timekeeping skills, Appice is known for his showmanship, which includes stick tosses and twirls, power fills, and double bass drum bombs. He is best known for his associations with Vanilla Fudge, Cactus and Beck, Bogert & Appice. Appice was the first rock drummer to conduct "Drum clinics" held at college campuses, theaters and drum stores.
He also wrote The Realistic Rock Drum Method, a best selling drum book.
Batio & Appice...two legends in Liverpool!
