Over an incredible 25 year career Tony MacAlpine has been recognized as one of the world’s great guitarists. He he has produced, written and arranged twelve solo instrumental studio albums and recorded with many more bands and projects making his one of the more prolific careers in the instrumental guitar arena. Tony MacAlpine has contributed both guitar and keyboards to a long list of records by other artists, and then in the late 90s, joined forces with Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater, Billy Idol) and Virgil Donati (Steve Vai, Scott Henderson) to form progressive rock band Planet X, regularly touring Europe and South America. In 1999, bassist Bunny Brunel (Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock) tapped MacAlpine to join his jazz-fusion band CAB, along with drummer Dennis Chambers (John McLaughlin, Carlos Santana) and keyboardist Brian Auger (Tony Williams, Jimi Hendrix). This lead to the release of their self-titled album in 2000, and their GRAMMY-nominated CAB2 album in 2001. Two further CAB albums followed and the band toured the world, including Europe, Asia and Russia. In 2015, MacAlpine suffered a Cancer scare. A benefit concert headlined by the likes of Steve Vai, Paul Gilbert, and Mike Portnoy was put on to support the guitarists recovery, to which he eventually did and returned to the stage shortly after, even releasing a new album in 2017.
