As a member of both the 80s premiere guitar band Racer X, and the million selling Mr Big, Gilbert has gained the reputation as one of the most melodic and powerful guitarists in rock.
Determined not to be pigeon-holed as a guitar shredder, Gilbert's solo work has allowed him to exercise his deep appreciation for the more song-oriented side of rock music.
The 'Fuzz' live tracks includes guitarist and singer Tony Spinner, who adds some amazing vocals, and some killer guitar battles and harmonies. Roundabout is especially impressive in that all the keyboard parts are played on guitar. Jeff Bowders (drums) and Craig Martini (bass) also perform on the live tracks.
One of the instrumental tracks on the album is Dave Brubeck's 'Blue Rondo A La Turk'. Its groundbreaking odd-time instrumental classic from the 60s is supercharged by Gilbert's electric guitar playing the saxophone parts, backed by his ridiculously tight band.
