MIMI GALBIERZ AND JAKE ORRALL NAMED "BEST GUITARISTS UNDER 30" October 10 2013, 0 Comments
"Jimmy Page. Lita Ford. Jimi Hendrix. Prince. Annie Clark. Sonny Sharrock. Billy Corgan. Thurston Moore. Carrie Brownstein. Jack White. Slash. BB King. Pete Townshend. Marnie Stern. All of these guitarists are amazing – they are legends. But none of them made this list because they are either too old or too dead (RIP). The guitarists here are under 30 years old." So says Red Bull in their recent post "Meet The 30 Best Guitar Players Under 30". Citing Mimi's "Overblown buzz-saw rock riffs that ooze venom and attitude via her band Heavy Cream" and Jake's "Weezer-inspired slacker rock" (and citing all 7 JEFF The Brotherhood albums as "essential listening"), the article also lauds friends-of-the-label Ty Segall, Marissa Paternoster of Screaming Females, as well as Kevin Parker from Tame Impala and Joe Trohman from (the Erin Zins-approved) Fall Out Boy. Congratulations to two of the 30 Best Guitar Players Under 30 in the world! Mimi Galbierz and Jake Orrall, you've done us proud.
