Starr Ackerman Interviews Fuel’s lead singer/guitarist Brett Scallions at Winter NAMM 2011


The cool part of my job? Meeting really cool rock stars and talking to them about music production- and it doesn’t hurt when I’m also a major FAN of the band…so I was especially stoked to interview Fuel‘s lead singer and guitarist, Brett Scallions at the Winter 2011 NAMM Show about using IK Multimedia products. From our short time together, (I also met up with Brett at the ArtistRelations.com Gear Preview two days prior to the show) I learned that:

1. Brett is a music producer, plays several instruments- including bass, guitar and of course, he’s a great singer.

2. Brett is friends with the guitar player from Anthrax (who he introduced me to at the show!) and likes using IK’s AmpliTube software to record guitars and bass.

3. Brett would prefer NOT breaking any bones this season while snowboarding…lol. I’m looking forward to seeing Brett on the Fuel tour this year, and hearing songs from his new music production project.

Here is the video interview with Brett Scallions on IK’s YouTube, thanks a lot Brett! You Rock!!! (Literally)

Fuel Band info from Wikipedia: “They are well known for their hit songs “Shimmer” from Sunburn, “Hemorrhage (In My Hands)“, “Bad Day” from Something Like Human, and “Falls on Me” from Natural Selection.”

Here is a video I found on YouTube for a live version of Fuel’s “Shimmer”.
