Steve Stevens Roland demo webcast

Here’s something cool that is bound to at least partially cheer up some of us Aussies who were bummed out that Steve Stevens’ planned Australian clinic tour was cancelled: he’ll be broadcasting his first hands-on public demo of Roland’s V-Guitar series of products at Guitar Center via GuitarTV. The event takes place at 7pm Pacific time on November 8 – click here to figure out what time that is if you’re in a different time zone.
I’ll be tuning in. Can’t wait to check this out. I messed around with the Roland GR-55 for about half an hour a while ago and utterly fell in love with it.
Here’s the press release.
Live Broadcast From Guitar Center Hollywood

WHAT: Roland Corporation U.S. and Guitar Center bring guitar legend Steve Stevens to Hollywood for his first hands-on public demonstration of Roland’s innovative V-Guitar series of products. Roland will also be giving away a Powered by Roland G-5 Strat® autographed by Steve Stevens.

WHO: Steve Stevens is perhaps best known for his nearly 30-year association with ‘80s icon Billy Idol and his pyrotechnic playing on Idol tracks such as “Rebel Yell” and “Eyes Without a Face.” Additionally, Stevens boasts an impressive resumé of achievements as both a solo artist and sideman, working with a diverse range of artists, including such greats as Joni Mitchell, Michael Jackson, Vince Neil and many others. In 1986, his contributions to the Top Gun soundtrack earned Stevens a GRAMMY® Award. Join Roland, Guitar Center and Steve Stevens for an evening of insight, discussion and live performance.
