PAUL GILBERT on MESHUGGAH: “I’m Not Ready for This Kind of Harmony”

Paul Gilbert with Captain

Paul Gilbert was recently a guest at Captain Anderton‘s, and he talked about growing up, picking a guitar, influences and more. He’s also played along. You can watch the full video below.

Gilbert also expressed his opinion on Meshuggah, saying:

All heavy metal past about 1989, I don’t know anything about it. The band I play with, my solo band, the bass player is a younger guy so he knows a lot of these things.

He tells me like, ‘Oh, Meshuggah will blow your mind! You gotta go see ‘em!’

And I listen to it and I just go like, ‘I’m not ready for that kind of harmony.’ My musical DNA was shaped around The Beatles and ’70s pop hits.
