THE BAND: The Fratellis HOMETOWN: Glasgow, Scotland PLAYERS: Jon Fratelli (vocals, guitar), Barry Fratelli (bass), Mince Fratelli (drums) WHAT TO BUY: Costello Music (March 2007, Interscope), the trio’s debut album, is jam-packed with rowdy garage riffs and addictive pop melodies, not to mention lyrics about the best topics—girls, girls, girls. Produced by Tony Hoffer (Beck, Air, Dave Gahan) and recorded at Los Angeles’ Sunset Sound (Bob Dylan, the Beach Boys), the album towers over all the other punky British pub rockers that have come out in recent years. GUITARS: Gibson Les Paul Standard, Gibson J-45, Gibson B.B. King Lucille, Gibson Hummingbird, Epiphone Rivoli Bass

Band of Horses' Ben Bridwell: Don't Fix What Ain't Broke

Ben Bridwell has a burly beard and a mass of tattoos, creeping up his neck, down his arms, everywhere. He wears oversized Ray-Bans, smokes up a storm, and typically sports some pretty mean cowboy boots. It’s not surprising he’s the frontman for a group called Band of Horses. He might be the indie rock version of the Marlboro Man.

The 10 Most Influential Albums Featuring Gibsons

There are good albums. Then there are really good albums. And then there are those special albums. The ones that kick down the door, knock you on your back, and have their way with you. They rewrite the rules, spawn countless imitators, and no matter how much you play them, they grow better with each passing year. Each one of these albums fits these criteria. But they have something else in common: Each was crafted using a Gibson guitar or two (or three or four) in the studio.

Think that you’re a hardcore Gibson fan? Well, All-American Rejects guitarist Nick Wheeler has probably got you beat. Aside from owning more Firebirds than he can count (he literally has a spreadsheet to keep track of his guitars, but estimates that he owns about a dozen ‘Birds), he recently had the iconic Firebird logo inked onto his inner arm as a tribute to his favorite axe.

You would think you were at a live concert what with all the clapping and singing along. But no, it was just the New York City premiere of Pearl Jam’s live concert film, Immagine in Cornice(Italian for “Picture in a Frame”) at the famous Ziegfeld Theatre. Between Pearl Jam fan club members, friends of filmmaker and photographer Danny Clinch, and more casual fans, the theatre felt as packed as one of the city’s bigger venues.

A Hundred Dollar Junior and Thirteen Great Songs: Grand Mal’s Reluctant Indie Rock (Download Free MP3!)

Formed the same year St. Johnny imploded, Grand Mal has, for 13 years, essentially been a solo vehicle whereby the New York City-based Whitten can exercise his love for writing great songs steeped in '70s rock traditions. The fact that he's made and released these albums largely on his own--or on tiny indie labels--testifies as much to the misguided machinations of a fashion-driven record industry as it does to Whitten's perseverance. Tops on his list of influences are the New York Dolls, Mott the Hoople, T. Rex, early Lou Reed, and the Ramones--all of whom lurk at the fringes of his distinctive songcraft. Think Marc Bolan's elegantly fuzzed-up riff rock, Reed's wry outlook (albeit in a sweeter and wittier form), and a DIY-pop aesthetic akin to vintage Todd Rundgren, and you get a good idea of Whitten's style.

Them vs. The World: Finger Eleven Take on the Road with a New Album and Several SGs

The good ideas are plentiful on Them vs. You vs. Me, ranging from the Aerosmith-styled boogie of “So-So Suicide” to the waltz-time “Change the World.” The disc is split pretty evenly between contagious pop-rock numbers (characterized by the chiming “I’ll Keep Your Memory Vague”) and darker, progged-out pieces like the album ending “Easy Life,” both of which trade on the fluid interplay between James Black and Rick Jackett (who plays Gibson SGs almost exclusively and at last count owned at least three of the sleek double-cutaways: the SG GT, SG '61 Reissue, and SG Standard).
