Update: The Super Bowl may have more gals (and gays) watching than ever before today thanks to Her Madgesty Madonna’s much touted half-time performance. We’ll be watching and live tweeting (follow us @L_in_A)…. and not just the superstar. Her guitar player, Monte Pittman (also known for his work with Adam Lambert) will handling rhythms and riffs for the set. He was on our Moheak show last month and though he wouldn’t spill any details about the game show (we tried!), he did say it was going to be very BIG. Can’t wait.
Check out this big acoustic jam Pittman did for us in studio:
Though he actually taught Madonna how to play guitar, Pittman is probably best known for his Glambert collabs. The latter apparently became the source of some controversy late last year: a record he did the American Idol fave was released in October and Lambert’s people were reportedly not happy, probably because he has a brand new one coming out soon. We actually quite liked the release, Beg For Mercy, as it recalls the glam rock feel that Adam brought to his A.I. performances (and LA spectacles like The Zodiac Show, which we caught the singer in way before he was a pop sensation).
Regardless, Pittman’s own music is just as dynamic and diverse. Check out his new album Pain, Love & Destiny and see what he’s up to on his website.
