Tony Macalpine

Progressive metal guitar virtuoso Tony MacAlpine began his musical education as a classically-trained pianist and violinist; his subsequent rock recordings retained a pronounced classical influence, incorporating elements of jazz and fusion as well. He debuted in 1986 with the instrumental Edge of Insanity, recorded with an all-star line-up including bassist Billy Sheehan and ex-Journey drummer Steve Smith; for the follow-up, Project: Driver, MacAlpine formed the band M.A.R.S. with drummer Tommy Aldridge, vocalist Bob Rock and bassist Rudi Sarzo. The group quickly dissolved and MacAlpine returned to his solo career, additionally forming his own label, Squawk; after 1987's Maximum Security, he founded another group, dubbed simply MacAlpine, with singer Alan Schorn, keyboardist Mark Robertson, bassist Mike Jacques and drummer Billy Carmassi. The band's lone record, Eyes of the World, appeared in 1990, and MacAlpine returned to instrumental projects for the remainder of the decade, issuing a series of albums including 1992's Freedom to Fly, 1995's Evolution, 1997's Live Insanity and 2000's Cab. Cab 2 followed in 2001. ~ Jason Ankeny

There is a whole lot of awesome Tony MacAlpine that is not on the Tony Macalpine Collection. This one album is not enough to do this artist justice.

I was just watching a video with his fro mullet. lol

Despite that he only has one album on Pandora, Macalpine is easily one of my most favorite artists ever.

Guess I'll just keep yammering away until Pandora expands their Tony Macalpine discography.

Common Pandora! You can do better than 1 Tony MacAlpine disc. Allmusic say Tony has 16 albums between his solo career and his work with CAB . Where are these albums? They are great music, and deserve more exposure!

Pretty much can't go wrong with Tony MacAlpine, whether its his solo career, Planet X, C.A.B, or Ring of Fire - he delivers the goods.

He's an incredible talent.

I met Tony before he became a rock star and was able to see him play locally in our home town of Springfield Mass and was always in awe of his talent. He plays a mean classical piano also. Better than Yngwie

I met him in person twice. He is as ridiculously talented on the keyboard as he is on guitar and one of the nicest cats you will ever meet.

A very talented guitarist. His compositions are masterpieces . The only problem is the production quality of his works.Most of them have low sound qualities.

Thats some hair alright

Not my style too heavy metal...I requested Vivaldi...no t sure how this popped up??

His guitar gets so hot that it's specially liquid cooled. The heat transfer can keep 2500 homes in Montana warm during the winter.

He did a keyboard solo when I saw him with Vai that was pretty impressive.
