Reid Laurence Lalonde

In yet another guitar ad that inexplicably crops the guitar in question, here’s Larry LaLonde of Primus with a beautiful Paul Reed Smith. This was scanned from Guitar Player, March 1996, squarely between that band’s albums Tales from the Punchbowl and Brown Album.


The Kansas Speedway just played host to the first ever Kanrocksas Music Festival, a two-day gathering of bands and artistic enterprises. Upwards of 50,000 fans were baked alive over the course of the event. We, of course, were looking out for guitars. Here are a few with the guitarists who hold them.

Alex Turner of Arctic Monkeys.

Ler: Larry LaLonde of Primus.

Mickey Melchiondo: Dean Ween playing "Transdermal Celebration."

Christian Bland of Black Angels.

Billy Howerdel of A Perfect Circle.
