Following the release of his latest solo album The Power of Three, last month via Metal Blade Records, MONTE PITTMAN has been working non-stop. After various appearances, clinics and signings at the NAMM convention in Anaheim, CA, MONTE invaded the East Coast. As part of the trip MONTE filmed an appearance for the daily cable music news show Fuse News.
MONTE‘s appearance will air tonight on the Fuse network at 7:30 PM EST. In the segment, (which was filmed on location at Ludlow Guitars in New York City), MONTE treats Fuse News host Georgie Okell to a guitar lesson of his song “On My Mind”. MONTE then goes on to tell Okell about the evolution of his career from aspiring guitar player, to guitar teacher, to becoming Madonna’s lead guitarist and of course his solo work.
“I had a great time with Georgie on Fuse News. I gave her a quick guitar lesson and showed her part of my song “On My Mind”. Music, as we know, is a universal language and I appreciate Fuse allowing me to perform for them”, said PITTMAN of the Fuse appearance.
MONTE has lined up select dates for March as part of “The Delusions of Grand Tour” including an appearance at SXSW in Austin, TX. He will also return to the Whisky in Los Angeles on April 5th for a headline show with Holy Grail and Gypsyhawk providing support. A complete list of dates can be found below.

The Power of Three, features PITTMAN, along with band members Kane Ritchotte on drums and Max Whipple on bass. Flemming Rasmussen, famous for Metallica’s seminal album ‘Master Of Puppets’, produced the album. The last track, “All Is Fair In Love And War”, features a guest guitar solo from Alex Skolnick guest vocals from Chris Barnes.
Artist Cam Rackam created the artwork for the cover of The Power of Three, which represents Monte’s musical journey from what he has done before and where he is now with The Power of Three and beyond.
