It wouldn't be a stretch to claim that Valery Gaina is one of the Top Ten virtuoso guitarists in the world (and I have no idea who the other nine are). A Soviet heavy-metal and hard-rock legend that quickly rose to fame and still hasn't lost his touch to this day. His music is entrancing, his speed and precision is mesmerizing and his birthday parties rock LA putting to shame San Andreas Fault (no offense, Fault). A rock idol from my childhood and a dear friend of mine for over 10 years, he is also one of the kindest, purest and most generous souls I've met in a long time. Happy birthday, man! You rock this world.
