OK to everyone who reads the blog, your going to get the inside scoop, a behind the scenes look, the art of the deal, the inside track!(that's why you should read the blog) on which artist that Rock House is secretly trying to secure for our next programs. Check it out this is way cool. We are very close and should be completed with a deal any day now to have Alexi Laiho founding member of the band Children of Bodom join Rock House's growing roster of talented young musicians.
Alexi is a monster guitarist and was recently feature on the cover of Guitar World Magazine along with Steve Vai and Zack Wylde. Alexi is the little guy in front, but his technique and playing are anything but little.
Alexi hails from Finland, he started playing when he was about 11 years old and has dedicated his life to creating music and developing his technique. He is known for his incredible six string momentum and melodic speed along with stern vocal strenght.
DEAL POINTS: If all goes well, we could be in the studio as early January 2008. He has basically agreed to the deal, it's just that we are now sorting out the use of the COB music for the backing tracks and working at integrating ESP Guitars into the mix. We're doing this for a few reason. One they can help the Rock House army grow, they make a custom Alexi guitar that we want as a give away for a Live Chat we'll do with him at some point and if they agree to handle his travel expenses we 'll produce an entry level DVD they can use for ESP guitar packs. In addition there is also the issue of Bea who is his manager that must travel with him. We have to sort out who will pay for her. I don't really think we should have to becuase he'll be with us the entire time. However, at the end of the day I think Rock House will end up having to do it just to keep things moving along. As you can see see a lot of stuff goes on behind the scenes to make these programs come together.
THERE's MORE: So while Joe P. is working on the front end to make all this happen, John McCarthty is fast at work with his team going over the music and picking out all the "technique goodies" and dveloping the examples that he is going have Alexi show you guys in his program.
