Bernie Marsden

Unread post by slinger »

I know we've got a few blues fans, and fans of great guitar playing, so it's a pleasure to let you guys know that Bernie Marsden has a new album out on July 23rd, called "Kings." If you hadn't already guessed, it features the songs of B.B., Albert, and Freddie King. The Pre Order price of the CD on Amazon is £12.95 or you can order a signed copy for a few bob more from Bernie's website. https://berniemarsden.com/

Bernie is one of my favourite players, and has one of the greatest guitar tones around, in my opinion. One of my "dream" guitars is his Paul Reed Smith SE Bernie Marsden Signature. I wish I could justify spending six or seven hundred quid on a used model. :naughty:

The "impossible dream" is the Gibson Les Paul 1959 Custom Shop model, known as Bernie Marsden's "The Beast" and which, if you could actually find one, retails for around £12,000.00+

Obligatory blurb...
In summer 2018 Bernie was invited to join Billy Gibbons on stage, and Billy said to him, “Bernie, wouldn’t it be great if we could all record the songs we grew up with as we learned to play the guitar?” Rather than suffer the usual fate of great ideas that are left to litter the dressing room floor, Bernie immediately set about making a list, and the “Inspirations” Series was born. “KINGS” is the first album of Bernie Marsden’s “Inspirations”. Featuring 10 songs that were originally recorded by Albert, B.B. & Freddie King, and recorded in a studio in Oxfordshire with a band that just locked into a groove, “KINGS” is chock full of blues and soul. Two Bernie Marsden penned instrumentals inspired by The Kings appear as the final two tracks on the album.
I've got a signed copy on the way.

Whitesnake are one of my favourite bands and Marsden is on what I consider to be their best, before Coverdale decided to target the American market.
