Guitarist Nita Strauss Drops By Sam Ash Music NYC w Blackstar Amps

Earlier today, Alice Cooper guitarist Nita Strauss dropped by the NYC location for Sam Ash Music to do a signing for fans in support of the Blackstar Amplication gear that she was currently endorsing. She did a session on this equipment back in February at the NAMM convention as well I was told. On Friday night she made an appearance at the Carle Place Sam Ash out on the Island where there was a little bit of a performance included for those in attendance.

“Girls Got Rhythm” by Various Artists

Artist: Various Artists
Title: “Girls Got Rhythm”

To celebrate their third anniversary the label has taken the idea of presenting 13 tribute acts to some of the greatest Rock bands of all time. Yes, there is KISS, Cheap Trick, Iron Maiden, ACDC and Black Sabbath and a few more – to mix it up a little bit they made sure that each of the cover bands were comprised entirely of women. Part of you might be saying, WHAT, an Iron Maiden tribute made up of women, well yes my Friend and The Iron Maidens are one of the standout presentations on the recording with their version of “Run to the Hills”. Thundherstruck (ACDC) does a great job on their track, but the lead singer sounds like she belonged in a Heart tribute since her vocal is so dead on.
