Uli Jon Roth

As stated by Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins “Uli [Jon Roth] is easily one of the top five guitar players in the world.” Uli Jon Roth is best known as lead guitarist for the band Scorpions (1974-1978) and the creator of the Sky Guitar which has some unique features not found on any other guitar. As the Scorpions were becoming world famous in the late 70’s, Uli decided to leave the band in pursuit of a highly creative and musically rich solo career, writing his own concertos and recording several albums under his own name and the band name “Electric Sun.”   Uli’s guitar style can be described as a mix between Jimi Hendrix and Randy Rhoads with a masterful blending of traditional classical guitar precision along with the emotion of soulful blues riffs.
