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.

Acclaimed Bleeding Through guitarist Dave Nassie is hitting the road for another round of clinics showcasing the new Charvel Desolation series guitars.
At these free guitar clinics, Nassie will guide fans through the axes with shredding in-store performances. In addition, Dave and Charvel will host meet-and-greet sessions at each clinic.
