And you think your guitarist is a show off? Try backing this dude....
Sometimes you just gotta ask, "why?" then you think "well, why not!"
lol. Yeap, if you can do, go forth and do. It would be a nightmare trying to back him though.
I think I would have pooped my pants if he had a bass on one neck and a guitar on the other.
I'm still stuck on .."Why?"...
In his case, the answer is because he can.
Batio is a technical monster. His career is built on the goofy guitar hero character.
Needs more cowbell.......and a better wig.
That's just his double guitar: have you seen his quad guitar?
He might be one of those archetypal shredder show-offs, but he is pretty darned good at what he does.
And from what I've seen of the guy, he seems like a pretty chill dude, unlike many other shredders from the day.
And to answer your question of who could back up such insanity, well... check out his band, Nitro:
lol. Exactly the band I would imagine him being in.
Dude has chops, no doubt. Him being grounded and a nice guy is honorable. Him having to refret his guitar after every performance is pure insanity.
Funny fact: The super goofily big haired lead singer from the band I linked the vid to was(is?) married to Lita Ford.
