Icon33 Luis Carlos Maldonado

For those of you who have had a chance to listen to GLENN's latest voice message over at his MySpace page, you would of heard him make reference to a guitar player that will be joining the ranks for the upcoming recording sessions for the next solo record, by the name of Luis Carlos Maldonado.

Hailing from the San Francisco Bay Area, he is a gifted guitar player having grown up in a musical family, playing guitar since he was 7 and studying it since he was 12. He attended classical guitar master classes at the University of Arizona and later graduated from College in CA. with 5 different certificates in recording, recording production, live sound, midi, keyboards, and engineering. All before the age of 21.

Although he has had a heavy latin and jazz background from an early age, rock is also a stable in his musical bag of tricks and so some of the bands that have had a huge influence on his playing style include Automatic Man, Isley Brothers, Argent, Sly and the Family Stone, Heart, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Terry Reid, Lucifers Friend, Free, The Nazz, The Sensational Alex Harvey Band, Stray Dog, The Faces and The Sweet to name just a few!!

He has quite a resume/CV:

He has recorded and toured with Pat Monahan (Train), Anna Nalick, John Waite (Baby's, Bad English), Tremolo, Michael Schenker, UFO, Holly Palmer, Tim Alexander (Primus), Buck Johnson Band and many more. He has collaborated with producers Patrick Leonard (Madonna, Jeff Beck), Charlie Midnight (James Brown, Hillary Duff), Jamie Houston (Macy Grey, Jessica Simpson), Steve Fontano (Santana) and many others. Luis currently plays guitar for recording artists Fata Morgana, Emma Burgess, Arie Shine, Pat Monahan, Glenn Hughes, Anna Nalick and Cindy Alexander.

Luis is also completing work on a soon-to-be-released album of his own.

Meantime, you can find his full discography and lots of other info about him at his web site, plus he has a couple of different MySpace pages.

Can't wait to hear his contributions to the new GLENN solo record
