    - By Arend, Jun 12, 2005 12:00 AM
    Tone Center, Mike Varney’s fusion-only label, is not only helping to keep the genre in good shape—it’s pumping it full of steroids. Last year the label released A Guitar Supreme: Giant Steps in Fusion Guitar. Such guitarists as Mike Stern, Larry Coryell, Eric Johnson, Steve Lukather, Greg Howe, Jeff Richman, Frank Gambale and others paid stringed tribute to the spirit of John Coltrane. This time around John McLaughlin and the legendary Mahavishnu Orchestra receive the treatment. Many of the same guitarists appear on this very impressive and important release. The music of the Mahavishnu Orchestra, first played over thirty years ago, provides the perfect material for some of today's greatest guitarists to test their mettle.

Lukather: "When we played those songs, people thought they were great, but they also thought we’d written ’em (chuckles). We were like the Junior Steely Dan; Landau played the part of Denny Dias and I was Jeff Baxter. Donald [Fagen] and Walter [Becker] actually came to one of our high school gigs, and we freaked out! They’re still one my favorite bands."

    - By Arend, Oct 6, 2004 12:00 AM
    Recently Simon Badham interviewed Steve Lukather for EssentialGuitarist.com. We're happy to present a sneak preview of this hilareous interview. Luke: If I stop, I really don't know. I just love the live scedule. I love the life. It seems insane, I’m a middle aged guy… I'll be 47 in October and I'm still like a little kid... it keeps me young. Jetlag... I don't even know what that is anymore, I’m terminally jetlagged! I'm on the road 9 months a year; I have a great bunch of people around me to hold me up... I’m a small part of a big team. I think if anybody has a life worth a shit, they have people around them to help prop them up. I can't imagine anybody who's ego is that big that they'd say “I did it all myself”.
