AD: Alex Masi for Crate

Straight from Venice to you

Alex Masi was Italy’s answer to the shred craze of the late ’80s/early ’90s. He was probably best known in the U.S. right around the time this ad was running in Guitar for the Practicing Musician, February 1990. By that time his band Masi had released Downtown Dreamers and Alex’s solo album Attack of the Neon Shark, cited in the ad, had been nominated for the Best Instrumental Rock Album Grammy. Who knew?
