          That little jazz thing he did there was pretty cool. He ought to ditch the wig and go with that.

            I feel bad cuz he’s one of the nicest dude’s I’ve ever met and you totally get that “This is clearly a genuinely good human being” vibe immediately from him, but man, he kind of played himself into a hole. If he started djenting, editing the shit out of his guitar tracks and maybe called himself Captain Dingleberry or something, he could probably have a revival, but he’d have to switch to a $4500 custom ERG double neck and he’s going to wrong direction with this one.

                I was so surprised to see him attached to this weird cash-grabby outfit. They're selling $1800 boo-teek combos on Amazon and have a shitty Wix website... I wasn't trying to belittle the dude, it's just such a weird image.

                  I wonder if he's got a financial stake in it. It's a weird move, otherwise.

                  I have to say, the Division guys and I saw him play at a small NoVA place a few years ago, and it was rather disappointing. I was all ready for a couple of hours of ridiculous guitar technique, and it...wasn't that. Maybe he was just having a bad day; he's obviously a talented player.

                  At this point, the wig is part of his schtick, but it looks even worse on an old guy than it did when he was younger.

                    saw him at a clinic around 2006 or so. he seemed really highstrung and nervous kinda like he does here. guess thats just his personality? seems like he was never really in a big famous band at any point in his career. idk how popular nitro was but I first heard of him from his instructional videos and videos about his crazy double/quad necked guitars. Idk why didn't ever get into a higher paying band gig. hes got chops for days.

                      It's funny. Everybody my age seems to remember Nitro, and I just don't. I think I saw the band name in rock magazines, and that's about it.

                      They never broke through, and for good reason--they were awful. Everybody had chops, nobody had songs. And Jim Gillette's vocals sounded like a guy being tortured.

                          yeah makes me think he would have been better off in a band with a killer song writer like Steve Harris/Iron Maiden. berhaps a lot of shredders guys would.

                            Eh, it's not like Nitro had any fans. Metalheads just know who they are because they were ridiculous. I actually had the tape as a kid and used to listen to it w/my BMX buddies. I swear I actually know all the lyrics still. It was fucking terrible then and it's terrible now.

                              Now this is a sig I can get behind. For sale now at a local (to me) guitar store in Pennsylvania. I forgot Dean made these, came with color stains as well with EMGs.

                                That reminds me of the pre Ball Steve Morse guitars a bit.

                                  You're kidding right? That thing is awful looking and the only way I'd pay $2k+ for anything that says Dean on the headstock would be if it came with a free JEM.

                                    Maybe it's just me and the fact I didn't get into music until the 90s, but what was the draw of this guy other than the dual-neck thing?

                                      pretty much. he is a legit shredder, but Nitro did not get big off of their songwriting chops.

                                        Nitro never had a draw other than ridiculous singer, over the top everything and the double neck thing. People paid attention because it was like watching a car crash, not because anyone ever thought their music was great.

                                              100%

                                              I do like Dean USA fiddles, but that thing almost wants to be a crabclaw!

                                                also idk how i meant this, but nitro released a new song a few years back. it's the exact opposite of old Nitro, but is just as bad:

                                                  ^ That sounds like a bad parody of that recent-ish Alice Cooper song. Which wasn't particularly good either.
