Charvel Q&A: Andy Williams of Every Time I Die

Posted on November 26th, 2013 by MDuffy


Currently on tour with Letlive and Code Orange Kids, Andy Williams of Every Time I Die has been hard at work igniting sold-out crowds with his searing fretwork.

The Buffalo, N.Y., native has been doing it for a long time, too.  Founding the metalcore band in 1998, Williams marvels at the fact that Every Time I Die continues to chug along 16 years later.

Charvel.com recently caught up with Williams to chat about the guitar he’s taking on the road with him and the secret to keeping a band together.

Charvel.com: What drew you to Charvel guitars originally?

Williams: I’m not really into guitars with a Floyd Rose on it, but I noticd that Joe [Duplantier] of Gojira has a stop tail piece on his.  I thought, “Holy shit, they have stop tails, hard tails.  This is going to work.”  I’m a guy that has always loved Strats, and so what I ended up using is one of the super Strats, the Pro Mod San Dimas with a hard tail.  It’s what I’ll bring out with me on the road.

Warren DeMartini and Jake E Lee Wow Fans in Japan

Posted on November 20th, 2013 by MDuffy


Hundreds of fans in Japan were recently treated to a rare meeting of rock royalty, as the legendary Warren DeMartini and Jake E Lee came together for a series of clinics in Osaka and Tokyo.

In each location, DeMartini and Lee participated in two clinics per day – one for area dealers and one for fans.

During the clinics, DeMartini and Lee shared stories from their days living in a house together in Los Angeles, writing some of their bigger riffs – such as DeMartini’s “Round and Round” with RATT and Lee’s “Bark at the Moon” with Ozzy Osbourne – under the same roof.

Then, as a special treat, the guitarists demonstrated what being that room would have sounded like, playing both songs at the same time.
