Ex-MEGADETH Guitarist MARTY FRIEDMAN: New Audio Interview Available

Shockwaves/HardRadio Podcast #17 is now available for download at this location (20 MB). Host Bob Nalbandian interviews former MEGADETH guitarist Marty Friedman. Friedman and Nalbandian discuss the good old days hanging out in Hollywood, Marty's early years with HAWAII and CACOPHONY, Friedman's years in MEGADETH, and Marty's current mega-success in Japan.

Marty's "Live in Tokyo" DVD and "Live in Europe" CD will be released simultaneously in Japan on August 22 by Avex. These feature different setlists, but with the same band members: Jeremy Colson (drums), Ron Jarzombek (WATCHTOWER, SPASTIC INK; guitar) and Chris Catero (bass).

Video footage of Friedman and his solo band performing in Zoetermeer, The Netherlands on April 6, 2007 has been posted on YouTube:
