About this artist

Guitarist Paul Nelson’s talents have helped shape quite an impressive resumé. After attending Berklee College of Music (he was one of future guitar hero Steve Vai’s first students there), Nelson played with the group Liege Lord, issuing a pair of albums, Burn to My Touch and Master Control. He’s also auditioned for slots in such renowned groups as Ozzy Osbourne, Slaughter, Dio, and Anthrax, penned his own instructional column in several different guitar publications, as well as appeared on numerous radio and TV spots. In addition to session work for other artists, Nelson issued his very first solo album in 2001, the all-instrumental Look (on the Orchard label). ~ Greg Prato
