Generation Axe (Vai, Malmsteen, Wylde, Bettencourt, Abasi) Release Song Off New Live Album
If you missed the Generation Axe tour featuring Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen, Zakk Wylde, Nuno Bettencourt and Tosin Abasi, well, you messed up, but there's still a chance for you to feel like you were there with the new live album, The Guitars That Destroyed the World (Live in China). If you caught the tour, you can relive the experience when the record drops on June 28. For now, listen to the Citizen Cope classic "Sideways," below.
The instrumental cut, which gets extended with furious soloing, is one of 11 tracks that will be featured on the live record. See the album art and track listing at the bottom of the page.
"Personally, 'Sideways' was part of these connections we'd have with two of us from time to time throughout the show," said Bettencourt, who played with Wylde on the live version. "It was great to see intimate numbers like ‘Sideways’ and ‘Black Star’ with Vai and Malmsteen," he added.
