The Best Guitarists Ever
Check out who made Alanna Evans' Top 10 Guitarist slot ...
"EDWARD PURSINO - Overshadowed by the impressive presence
of David DeFeis, Edward Pursino has been mucking about in Virgin
Steele since the band's first serious incarnation with "Noble
Savage". He's dazzled us for over fifteen years but rarely
recieves the nod he deserves. He rips, shreds and inspires. Hot
Spots: Virgin Steele: "Noble Savage", "The Marriage
of Heaven and Hell II", "The House of Atreus Act II"
out the whole Top 10 Here.

Q: What can we expect from this CARNIVAL OF SOULS gig on May
A: Total bedlam, pandemonium and other assorted chaos! It's
really a wing & a prayer sort of thing, but to which God
or Goddess...I have no idea!
Q: What songs are in the Set at present?
A: Who knows!!! Last night we touched upon some Led Zeppelin,
Tony Iommi, The Cult and Iggy Stooge to name just a few. But
the end result is still way up in the air....beyond the stars....It
is still developing. Ask me next year.
Q: Will there be any VIRGIN STEELE in the Set List?
A: Yes Edward & I will do some acoustic stuff, and maybe
with the full group we'll try one or 2 things that we've never
actually done live with VIRGIN STEELE. But remember..it isn't
VIRGIN STEELE, it is a totally different animal.
Q: What about any EXORCIST songs?
A: Yes indeed! Most likely QUEEN OF THE DEAD and hopefully something
What does Frank Gilchriest think about this?
A: Frank has been at both of the previous Carnival Of Souls
gigs and he will be at this one too. Frank is always doing something
musical. That night he is performing in a classical recital,
and then he will be down at our gig. He's very into what we
are doing. I've been to gigs he has done with other groups and
he reciprocates. It's totally great! He is also very good friends
with Geoff Fontaine, and if he wants to come up onstage &
join in, he knows that he is always more than welcome to do
so. So in effect we will all be in the House so to speak.
What is the latest on the VIRGIN STEELE front?
A: Preparing for a few Summer Festivals and working on a new
VIRGIN STEELE album. I am writing and recording and sorting
through songs. We will be laying down further tracks over the
next weeks. The work on the new album proceeds bit by bit and
should hopefully be wrapped up over the next months. Once it
is... I will discuss it further. Until then... stay Invictus!!!
And hey... see you on the 8th of May.
