Featuring collaborations with B. Slade, Doyle Bramhall II and Beth Hart, Eric Gales’ album ‘The Bookends’ was released via Provogue/Mascot Label Group earlier in 2019.
Gales says of making the album: “As a guitar player it’s been established that I can play a little bit, just a little bites.
“But for this album he not only wanted to push himself as a musician, but also as a vocalist, to build up his vocal discography. What spearheaded that was the artists that I have on the record.”
Heralded by many guitarists as their favourite guitarist, Eric Gales counts Carlos Santana, Dave Navarro (Jane’s Addiction, Red Hot Chili Peppers), Mark Tremonti (Alter Bridge), Joe Bonamassa, Tony Rombola (Godsmack) and Tosin Abasi (Animals as Leaders) as among his fans.
