Guitar Therapy Live

Mike Keneally Band

Mike Keneally Band - Guitar Therapy Live: Like the Rush Replay X3
DVD release a couple weeks back, I can't even begin to pretend to
be impartial here. Keneally is absolutely one of my all-time
favorites. But that doesn't mean I'm going to steer you wrong —
if I thought this wasn't an easily palatable platter of fine
phonic fun, I would have little problem saying so. And that is
most definitely not the case here.

With Guitar Therapy Live, guitarist Keneally has whittled the
results of several seemingly spectacular shows down to one solid
disc. I usually have problems with multi-show &quot;live&quot; documents,
but sometimes they're just done right and luckily I can say
that's how this one turns out. Instead of feeling like it's been
edited together and suffering from being the sum of many parts,
GTL becomes the greater whole. Even longtime fans who may have
traded with other fans (with Keneally's consent) for dozens and
dozens of his shows will find this a pleasing set. There isn't a
dud moment in the entire runtime.

For those new to Keneally, he is best described as the heir to
the Zappa throne, and don't take that lightly. While many may
toss out the obvious names of Steve Vai and Zappa's own son,
Dweezil, Keneally is the only guitarist who possesses the skills
and taste needed to pull off what Frank himself could. Because
Keneally is humble, you'll probably never see him mount a project
such as Zappa Plays Zappa (also because he wouldn't technically
fit the bill) but he absolutely deserves to be the one playing
those solos. The spirit of Zappa lives on in Keneally — except
maybe not as vulgar (you actually can play Mike's music for your
entire family without fear of needing to skip over anything!)

Those interested in obtaining a session of Guitar Therapy are
HIGHLY urged to do so via Keneally's official site
<a href="http://www.keneally.com/" target="_blank">http://www.keneally.com/</a> where they can purchase the deluxe
edition, which will not be available in stores and which features
a bonus DVD of a full, uncut performance shot live last summer
(some of which was used for the audio disc.)

Actually, I believe the DVD is *slightly* cut. According to the setlist
archive, part of &quot;Communication Breakdown&quot; was played, but it's absent
from the disc, and there's a slightly awkward looking cut at that point.

Still, what I've watched rocks. And I was at the Sellersville, PA show
used on the live disc. I anxiously await the release of that show on DVD
as well.

Mike Keneally is tremendously gifted, but that paragraph is really
over-the-top. Questioning Dweezil's taste and humility is a cheap shot
and are not relevant criticisms, IMO. Mike Keneally can do what he wants.
I am not a Dweezil &quot;fan&quot;, but he's Frank's kid. If he doesn't have dibs
to the heritage, who does?

Mike Keneally?

Beside the point. He doesn't have to be a snot-nosed little prick about it.
