Warren Cuccurullo
The Story
"Roadrage" is guitarist Warren Cuccurullo's 1998 live project featuring tracks recorded live in Los Angeles, New York City, London, and Asbury Park, N.J. This CD, essentially, is a sequel to the fantastic "Thanks 2 Frank" album, providing the rest of the songs Warren played in his solo shows from 1994-96 (except for Zappa's "Chunga's Revenge"). "Road Rage," "The Beating" and "Whatever You Say, Mac" were all brand new in the March 1996 shows. A few Zappa covers are included ("Transylvania Boogie" and "Willie The Pimp") and a positively scalding, amped up instrumental take on Duran Duran's "Ordinary World". Also included on "Roadrage" is "Suddenly Spring", a live solo acoustic piece performed for VH-1 in London. "This is the most emotional, spirited, fiery guitar playing that I've ever done,"Cuccurullo enthuses. "You have never heard it like this. This sounds like it was recorded in a studio."
