Bernie Torme: “White Trash Guitar”

Bernie Torme, legendary cult guitarist, uses his 60’s Fender Stratocaster and Marshall 100 watt amp like he knew them in a previous life.

Above is the description of Bernie which you will find if you enter his name into one of the leading world wide search engines. In a career spanning three decades in the music business, highly regarded guitarist Bernie Torme has played with some of the biggest names in rock. “White Trash Guitar” containing 14 totally new songs all recorded in 1999, features more of Bernie’s unmistakable guitar pyrotechnics and piledriver sound than ever before. Coupled with the thundering rhythm section of ex-Anti-Nowhere League members John Pearce and chris Jones this makes for a unique and uncompromising album. The CD also features Dee Snider of Twisted Sister guesting on lead vocal, as well as a blistering live version of “Purple Haze,” a firm favorite at Electric Gypsies live performances. If you can picture an album that has all the guitar feeling and excitement of late 60’s acts such as Hendrix or Cream, but is also full of the raw energy of late 70’s punk, yet also hints at more diverse recent influences, then “White Trash Guitar” is that album. Bernie Torme’s best to date and not to be missed. Bernie torme has sold more than 3.5 million units worldwide in the course of his career. or
