Yoko Ono seems to have become too generous in giving permission to use her late husband, John Lennon’s songs. Amnesty International is an institution with some dubious affairs under their belt, yet Yoko decided to allow them take “Imagine” for a human rights education campaign to start in October. It won’t be an original version though, the song is to be recorded by a children’s choir.


Well, yes, it’s hard to escape the word “another”, because “The Songs Of Pink Floyd” is another PINK FLOYD tribute (though with not so original title) and another tribute album to emerge from Bob Kulick’s cutting table. So there are all the usual suspects:

1. Shine On You Crazy Diamond – Steve Lukather, Marco Mendoza, Vinnie Colaiuta
2. Money – Tommy Shaw, Ritchie Kotzen, Tony Levin, Mike Baird, Edgar Winter
3. Comfortably Numb – Billy Sherwood, Chris Squire, Alan White
4. Welcome To The Machine – Doug Pinnick, Gary Hoey, Mike Porcaro, Greg Bissonette, Derek Sherinian
5. Have A Cigar – Bobby Kimball, Bob Kullick, Bruce Kullick, Mike Porcaro, Greg Bissonette
6. Us And Them – Jeff Scott Soto, Jimmy Haslip, Scotty Page, Pat Torpey
7. Run Like Hell – Jason Scheif, Tony Franklin, Aynsley Dunbar
8. Any Colour You Like – Robben Ford, Tony Franklin, Aynsley Dunbar, Scott Walton, Steve Porcaro
9. Breathe (In The Air) – Robin McAuley, Jeff Baxter, Phil Soussan, Eric Singer
10. Young Lust – Glenn Hughes, Eliot Easton, Tony Franklin, Aynsley Dunbar
11. Another Brick In The Wall Pt. II – Fee Waybill, Ronnie Montrose, Mike Porcaro, Greg Bissonette


In a hushed tones, but finally Steve Howe and Martin Taylor collaboration have resulted in an album called “Masterpiece Guitars” and is out now. For all the guitar aficionados, there’s a collection of originals and all-time classics:
