Castellano has blended into the band virtually seamlessly. For example, at the "Hawgs of Texas" Show at Somerville Lake near Brenham, Texas on 28 April 2007, Castellano demonstrated quick thinking when his bandmate Buck Dharma experienced a sudden failure of the battery pack for his Steinberger guitar (the "Cheeseberger"). Without missing a beat, he plugged into Dharma's effects unit and proceeded to play the first part of Dharma's solo, then handed his guitar over to Dharma as lead singer Eric Bloom passed his own guitar over to Castellano.

And I have to say, this is a pretty good job of a remake..

I was ready to get pissed, but this was actually very impressive. Perhaps title it tribute instead of remake. I was expecting some awful rap lyrics or something thrown in.
Really cool. Any idea how much time was put into this project? My guess is a ton.

I love that he plays a Brian May guitar and probably used a sixpence for a pick as you can hear the metal - on -metal sound. The solo is a trifle more distorted than the original but played very tastefully with much of the same emotion that May put in to it.
Big props for not resorting to any studio tricks or pitch modulation on the voices.
He got really, really close to getting the Roger Taylor high "for MEEEEEE!" part too.
Dunno why Alpha has to find fault in everything.
One word for it:.
ETA: I got to hear BOC twice as a young kid. We lived next to a corner tavern in Upstate NY and I would hang out with friends and play with the owner's puppies while listening to the bands play. They were amazing even back in "71. Buck Dharma = guitar god.edit on 17-6-2013 by Asktheanimals because: (no reason given)
