QUEENSRŸCHE guitarist Michael Wilton will make an in-store appearance at Raptor Guitars in Phoenix, Arizona on May 19 from 6 to 8 p.m.
Michael will sign autographs and the store will also have a few of Michael's new signature "Demon" guitars for sale.
For more information, see the poster below.
Wilton recently made his official miniature guitar replicas available through Rat Pak Records' Whipwear web site.
The item is described in the following way: "Menacing, glowing skulls and stunning detail! Our signature Michael Wilton miniature model guitar is a great collectible and tribute to QUEENSRŸCHE. Stand included. Miniature replica is not a playable guitar."
The guitar comes with "American Soldier" guitar picks from Michael's personal collection!
Wilton is continuing work on his solo CD, which is tentatively due later in the year via Rat Pak Records and Century Media distribution.
Michael makes a guest appearance on a couple of songs on the new solo album from METAL CHURCH vocalist Ronny Munroe, entitled "The Fire Within".
QUEENSRŸCHE's twelfth studio LP, the epic concept album "American Soldier", was made available from Atco/Rhino in March 2009 for a suggested list price of $18.98 (CD) and $9.99 (digital). The ambitious album encompasses a dozen songs inspired by numerous interviews with veterans conducted by Geoff Tate, the group's singer and chief songwriter, who was intent on telling their story using their words. After speaking with soldiers who served in various conflicts — from World War II to Iraq — Tate turned their firsthand experiences from the frontlines into an unflinching musical examination of the life of a solider and the consequences of war.
