Down In The Valley - Music, Movies, Minneapolis & More

Despite the shower of praise that inevitably comes with being a heavy metal guitar icon it's surprising how little coverage is given to a man of the talents, dedication and musicality of Axel Rudi Pell. Many guitarists are lauded these days as great guitar players because they treat the fret board like a burning light saber. Technically they may be fine musicians who can play all the notes, often in the right order, but can they produce memorable riffs or soaring solos? In short the answer, for the vast majority, is no. Not even close. This is brought into focus more sharply when listening to Pell. A man who has paid his dues several times over and by rights should be right up there with the legends of the six-string. Too many people he is a legend and their steadfast views will be validated on Game of Sins.
