Chris Francis - Studs n' Sisters
Sounding inspired by Van Halen and Steve Vai, on his 2006 CD Studs N' Sisters U.K. guitarist Chris Francis rolls a blend of instrumental guitar rock enhanced with his freewheeling heavy metal guitar licks. It's not all hard rock and there's some tasty melodic work especially on his refreshing anthemic guitar instro cover of the Madonna classic 'Material Girl' while the moog-like guitar groove of '2nd Base' gets it right with trancelike Jan Akkerman sound. The colourful liner booklet serves as a program guide for Chris' cinematic, retro-flavored electric rock and jazz guitar instrumentals.
