DRAGONFORCE's HERMAN LI Joins TONY MACALPINE On Stage In San Pedro (Video)

DRAGONFORCE guitarist Herman Li joined guitar legend Tony MacAlpine on stage on October 28 at Alvas Showroom in San Pedro, California to perform two songs: "Tears Of Saraha" and "The King's Cup" from Tony's 1987 album "Maximum Security". Video footage of Li's appearance can be seen below.

Tony's band features Brazilian drumming powerhouse Aguiles Priester and bassist Bjorn Englen.

MacAlpine is widely known as a guitar virtuoso who is just as skilled on the keys. "Edge Of Insanity", one of his fourteen solo albums, is still considered as one of the top ten shred guitar albums of all time. Aside from his solo work, Tony has also been part of several rock supergroups, including PLANET X with Derek Sherinian and Virgil Donati, PSMS (Portnoy / Sheehan / MacAlpine / Sherinian), as well as the Grammy-nominated CAB with bassist Bunny Brunel and drummer Dennis Chambers. MacAlpine also spent seven years playing guitar and keys in Steve Vai's touring band.

Earlier this year, DRAGONFORCE began recording the follow-up to 2014's "Maximum Overload" album at Fascination Street studios in Örebro, Sweden with producer Jens Bogren, who has previously worked with OPETH, THE DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT, AMON AMARTH, KATATONIA, SOILWORK and SYMPHONY X, to name a few.
