Monte Pittman (Monte Pittman)

Interview with Monte Pittman from Monte Pittman
by Jeff Legg at 16 September 2016, 3:08 PM

With a pretty descent “day job” as lead guitar player for one of the biggest names to ever adorn the Pop Music landscape, Monte Pittman disguises his inner metal tendencies well. By day, Pittman has been MADONNA’s lead guitar player for more than 15 years, flashing his unassuming sidekick smile to millions of adoring fans, while accompanying the “Material Girl” on five world tours. By night, he is a seasoned Rock Star with a mean streak. For the better part of the 2000’s, he returned to his heavier roots, handling guitar duties for PRONG, writing, recording and touring, a gig that prepared him well for a run at a successful solo career. And after making a well known, highly respected name for himself in the shadow of someone else’s light, his solo career has put this multifaceted Heavy Metal Guitar God front and center as the lead vocalist and the face of the franchise.

Following up the hard and heavy, “The Power of Three” (2014), Pittman releases “Inverted Grasp of Balance” on September 23rd, via Metal Blade Records. This well-crafted slab of lead is genius and is currently sitting atop my list for “Album Of The Year”. I (Jeff Legg) recently spoke with Monte about the new album and stepping into the role as a lead singer, how a Metalhead ended up playing with Madonna, and what the future holds for his career. I must say, besides being one of the most talented artists I’ve ever met, he is one of the nicest, most accommodating musicians that I have ever had the pleasure of speaking with. Thanks Monte.
