Phil X solo and Blaze of Glory lessons on Guitar Jamz

This one's for the guitarists.

I think most people who learn guitar these days check out videos on YouTube. And if you do, you've probably come across Marty Schwartz, who runs Guitar Jamz and has a very popular lesson channel. In fact, his Blaze of Glory tutorial was shared by Bon Jovi's Facebook page last year.

Anyway, Phil X recently joined Marty for a rock soloing lesson using the pentatonic scale.

Phil also demos vintage guitars on the Fretted Americana channel and is pretty amusing while doing so.

Wanted Dead or Alive at Night of Too Many Stars

Comedy Central's Night of Too Many Stars is an autism benefit show, in partnership with the not-for-profit organisation New York Collaborates for Autism. Here's a video of Jon Bon Jovi performing "Wanted Dead or Alive" at the event, while actor/comedians Will Forte, Gilbert Gottfried, Al Roker, and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog do their best to butcher the song.

Jon's previous encounter with Triumph (on the Bounce Tour, if I recall correctly) was probably a bit funnier. Here are some snippets from that:
