So heres where it begins...

I was googling Paul Gilbert and started reading one of his interviews with someone. Over on the right hand side there appeared another artist. He played a 6-string music man like petrucci does, he was bald, has a neoclassical sound, his first name starts with an "A" (about 60% sure) and he is not from the US. I clicked on the pic, and it took me to his myspace. He was a great player, and i want to learn more about him.

I wish i could remember the name of the people interviewing Gilbert but i dont.

I know this is fairly impossible, and its like finding a needle in a haystack. I know one of his top friends was actually Gilbert, thats why i kept looking.

Anyone have a clue?
