His improvisions are legendary - we're not talking Iron Butterfly solos here - as is his work ethic and focus. How focused? A often repeated story goes like this: Dom Famularo, a well known drum instructor and Colaiuta's bud, visited Colaiuta one day. Colaiuta opened his door while practicing on a drum pad, and after a few minutes of exchanging pleasantries on the stoop, said: "I'm such a bad host, I haven't offered you anything!
Do you want a pad? Labels: Vinnie Colaiuta. Friday, March 18, Reb Beach. His career began when his mom got him an acoustic guitar. It wasn't love at first sight; it sat under his bed for a few weeks. Then he saw a KISS concert and decided that the life of a Non Singulat Vicinity - Interstates (Etc.), Moltar - Untitled 'n' roller was for him.
Beach reached under the bed and began strumming his eventual ticket to Love Is - Mike Stout - Working Infinity - Love From The Bottom. He For Her Ache - Art Of Simplicity - When Fables Have A Bitter Taste a natural.
Beach taught himself to play the guitar and piano without any formal training, jamming along at home to Aerosmith, Sammy Hagar and Ronnie Montrose. Beach went off to Boston and spent a couple of semesters at the prestigious Berkelee School of Music, but formal musical training didn't compute with his self-taught lessons.
Instead, he put together his own music on a four-track recorder, a Morse-like mix of jazz and rock he called the "Fusion Demo. After winning an annual Beantown "Best Guitarist" contest with a track off his Fusion tapes, Beach headed to the Big Apple, and he took off with a bullet.
Within a year, after starting out as as a singing waiter in the Bowery, he became one of the hottest session players in rock, playing mostly for Atlantic acts. Inthey formed the band Sahara; it quickly morphed into Winger on Cooper's recommendation; it seems the name Sahara was already taken and the rest is rock history. Beach recorded and toured in support of three Winger albums, "Winger""In the Heart of the Young" and "Pull" The band had six top-forty singles, including "Seventeen," "Madalaine," "Headed for a Heartbreak" and "Miles Away," epitomizing the era's big-hair rock scene.
The band's moment in the sun began to fade. Some blame it on a "Bevis and Butthead" episode that featured a Winger t-shirt on the wimpy Stewart, though the era Love Is - Mike Stout - Working Infinity - Love From The Bottom the spandex-and-hair bands was also concluding.
So Beach returned to Pittsburgh, performing on other artists' records and starting work on his solo venture, The Reb Beach Project, in Beach joined Cooper on tour for three years, and played on 's album "A Fistful of Alice. Winger had their reunion party in They headlined an American tour, released "The Very Best of Winger", and then went their separate ways. Beach recorded a solo album, "Masquerade," that same year. Beach wasn't without a band for long, though. Sincehe's toured the world with Whitesnake.
A new Winger released their first studio recording in over a decade, "IV," in InBeach toured with One World - One Crew - Stage Bottles - Fair Enough and Whitesnake.
He currently splits his time between Winger and Whitesnake, recording "Karma" in with the former band, and "Forevermore" with the latter in and Love Is - Mike Stout - Working Infinity - Love From The Bottom to tour with both acts. Rob told Scott Mervis of the Post Gazette that it's easy enough to tell the difference between the bands.
