By George Dionne, Podcaster

“[Kerrang! Magazine] called me the fastest guitar player in the world, which by the way I hate. It’s not true.”

Until now, a good amount of the IMPELLITTERI back catalog was only available in Japan and select parts of Europe. Thanks to Global Rock Records and frontman Chris Impellitteri, the entire IMPELLITTERI catalog from 1987 to 2010 can be enjoyed on your favorite music streaming platform.

In addition, on September 30, 2022 Global Rock Records marked this momentous occasion with the physical release of Wake The Beast: The Impellitteri Anthology. The 3CD collection encompasses tracks from their 1987 debut ‘black’ EP to 2009’s Wicked Maiden, plus features both IMPELLITTERI vocalists Rob Rock and Graham Bonnet.

I had the chance to speak with guitarist Chris Impellitteri prior to the album’s release.

Highlights include:

-Discussion of The Impellitteri Anthology
-Bringing his back catalog to Global Rock Records
-IMPELLITTERI ‘big in Japan’
-Why vocalist Rob Rock left after debut EP
-Graham Bonnet being recruited for Stand In Line
-Bonnet out, Rock back in the band
-Upcoming tour plans
-Why Chris is not a fan of side projects
-Have other bands tried recruiting him
-Future work on the production side of things
-How many guitars in his collection
-And much, much more
