A Flock of Seagulls FREAKIN' ROCKS!!!

That's right, you heard me.

I'll say it again: the guitar player for A Flock of Seagulls FREAKIN' ROCKS!

That is to say, it turns out that the band's current guitar player, Joe Rodriguez, is a shredder on the side. Who would have guessed? I know we all may have some preconceived notions about A Flock of Seagulls, and I wouldn't ever mean to diminish anyone who has used their creative talents to achieve any level of sustainable pop success. But I would never have thought of them as being virtuoso instrumentalists. Check out Rodriguez's playing on his solo album, Antares: The GranDesign. The writing is powerful and the guitar playing expressive. See, it always pays to dig a little deeper. | Derek Lauer
