Attention Deficit Delirium – Marty Friedman

Bryan Reesman of Attention Deficit Delirium has interviewed legendary guitarist Marty Friedman.

Here is an excerpt:

Guitarist Marty Friedman is a rock musician who truly follows his own muse. After playing with Megadeth during their most successful period in the ’90s, he went on to a successful solo career in Japan, where he has lived for over 10 years. Not content to just be a metal axeman — although his latest solo album Inferno, which has been reissued digitally with two bonus tracks, is often a heavy, lightning speed affair — he has embarked on a number of other musical projects, one of his most recent being an Astor Piazzola concert with Argentine tango-jazz group Escalandrum down in Buenos Aires. Married to classical cellist Hiyori Okuda, Friedman speaks Japanese in his adopted home, but he breaks out the English for interviews, chats with friends and family, and his current U.S. solo tour, his first in over a decade, which begins tomorrow night in Baltimore.

A.D.D. spoke with Friedman about his latest work and tour, his wild musical adventures in the East, and his approach to six-string playing.
