A one-minute promotional skit for Jackson guitars starring MEGADETH‘s Chris Broderick can be seen below.
The Colorado-bred Broderick is not only a formidable shred guitarist, but also an extraordinary musician in a much wider sense. He started playing at age 10, studying guitar, voice, violin and piano, and eagerly devoured a wealth of diverse musical influences extending well beyond rock into classical, jazz, blues and country forms. He earned a degree in classical guitar performance from the University of Denver’s Lamont School of Music, and he himself has taught guitar for more than a dozen years.
Broderick joined MEGADETH in early 2008. His molten guitar work has contributed to the band’s current revitalization, including 2009 album “Endgame”, 2011’s “THIRT3EN” and 2013’s “Super Collider”; the “American Carnage” and “Rust in Peace” 20th-anniversary tours, and the summer 2010 Sonisphere festival shows in Europe that featured several metallically historic “Big Four” shows.
