Here some ‘Ripping’ from Gary Dranow:

Gary Dranow shares his guitar loving inspiration on “Jimi’s Song” as an ode to the late Jimi Hendrix. The steady beat once again allows a focus on the well-written lyrics of the songwriter. There is a harder rock feel to “Shimmering” but the passion and emotion to the craft remains. These are songs that you can dive into fully and let them sing deep into your soul.

The album closes with the fastest and hardest track “Ripping” and that is just what Gary Dranow does on his guitar here. If he was taking it easy with the early songs, he lets it all out here to show off the multi-talented artist that he is. You get a taste of all he has to offer, almost begging you to dive deeper into his catalog.
