Hey Rob! Welcome back! How have you been? What you’ve been up to lately?

GREAT TO BE TALKING TO YOU AND ALL THE FANS OF VENTS MAGAZINE. ONCE AGAIN I’M SO EXCITED TO TELL EVERYONE ALL THE DETAILS OF THE ROB CARLTON BAND. I’M DOING REALLY WELL.

THE FIRST NEWS I WOULD LIKE TO TALK ABOUT IS THE TWO NEW PRODUCTS THAT ARE OUT RIGHT NOW WITH MY NAME ON THEM. NUMBER ONE IS THE RE-AXE GUITAR HANDLER GUITAR STAND. BIG THANK YOU TO THE INVENTOR, JEFF CUTLER. THIS PRODUCT FITS RIGHT INTO YOUR GUITAR CASE. YOU CAN TAKE IT ANYWHERE! ITS VERY PORTABLE. YOU SET IT UP ON YOUR AMP OR TABLE AND PLACE YOUR GUITAR IN IT AND IT KEEPS YOUR GUITAR SAFE FROM FALLING OVER. IT’S JUST A COOL PIECE THAT ALL GUITARISTS SHOULD HAVE. MORE DETAILS ON THE ROB CARLTON VERSION CAN BE FOUND AT RE-AXE.COM

SECOND PRODUCT IS THE NEW SONIC FUSION PEDAL CALLED “THE ROB CARLTON SEVEN THUNDERS FUZZ PEDAL.” THIS PEDAL ROARS LIKE THE HENDRIX PEDALS ROGER MAYER MADE FOR JIM BACK IN THE 60S. IT’S OUTSTANDING  AND GETS YOU THAT JIM VIBE WHEN YOU TURN IT UP AND ROCK OUT WITH IT. I’M SUPER PLEASED WITH THIS PRODUCT AND GUITAR PLAYER MAGAZINE HAS SHOWED INTEREST IN A POSSIBLE REVIEW IN GUITAR PLAYER! MY HAT’S OFF TO THE INVENTOR, ED, FROM SONIC FUSION PEDALS. I’M SUPER GRATEFUL TO AND FOR ALL OF YOU. FANS OUT THERE WHO WANT A GREAT FUZZ PEDAL LOOK NO FURTHER! THE PEDAL ALSO LOOKS GREAT! THE COVER OF MY CD SEVEN THUNDERS IS ON THE PEDAL. FOR MORE DETAILS GO TO: HTTP://WWW.SONICFUSIONPEDALS.COM.

AS FAR AS WHAT THE ROB CARLTON BAND IS DOING, I RECENTLY GOT TOGETHER WITH AMAZING ROCK VOCALIST, PAUL ANTHONY YEATON.  WE HAVE ABOUT 70 NEW SONGS AND THIS FALL, WE STARTED RECORDING 8 SONGS IN “THE STUDIO” IN PORTLAND, MAINE, WITH JIM BEGGLEY THE ENGINEER, AT THE HELM. THIS ALBUM HAS BIG SOUNDING GUITARS AND TONS OF HOOKS; A MIX OF PEARL JAM, THE CULT, LED ZEPPELIN AND QUEEN IS THE BEST WAY I CAN DESCRIBE THE SOUND. IT’S ALSO GOT A VERY TODAY SOUND GOING FOR IT AS WELL. I’M PICKING AND CHOOSING THE GUITAR SOLOS. THERE WILL BE SOME SURPRISES IN THE MIX AS WELL. MY SINGER IS GOING TO ENGLAND IN JAN. WE ARE PLANNING ON MIXING SOME OF IT THERE AT THE FAMOUS BEATLES STUDIO, ABBEY ROAD, SO WE ARE VERY EXCITED ABOUT THIS WHOLE ALBUM! NO TITLE YET, BUT HERE ARE A FEW SONG TITLES:  DIAMONDS, BETTER DAYS, LONELY ROAD, HOW MANY TIMES.

I’M ALSO VERY EXCITED ABOUT TOURING AND PLAYING THESE CITIES IN 2013: BOSTON, NEW HAMPSHIRE, PORTLAND MAINE, CONN, NEW YORK CITY, NEW JERSEY, AND LONG ISLAND, NEW YORK. WE ARE ALSO SET TO DO A PBS TV BROADCAST OF 3 SONGS AND INTERVIEW ON A BOSTON STATION ADDED TO THE MIX.

I’M SIGNING WITH TIN MAN MERCHANDISING BEFORE THE YEAR ENDS. THEY ARE THE SAME MERCHANDISING COMPANY THAT TAKES CARE OF AC/DC, RATT, DEF LEPPARED, DOKKEN, FOREIGNER, GEOFF TATE, METALLICA, STEVIE WONDER, LA GUNS, LIVE NATION AND SO MANY MORE.

I’M ALSO EXCITED BECAUSE RECENTLY I ACQUIRED AN HISTORIC 1958 GIBSON LES PAUL THAT SOUNDS AMAZING. PICTURES TO FOLLOW SOON. HEY, ITS ONLY ROCK N ROLL AND I LIKE IT.
