I might as well leave my jaw on the floor because every time I see Nita Strauss perform, it falls anyway. This rock chick proves that shredding is not for the faint of heart. See how she rips through that guitar? Well, legend has it her axe retires after every concert which I have no doubt, is what happened at the end of this show. At 29 years old, she has already made a name in the music industry — not just as Alice Cooper’s guitar player or Orianti’s replacement. She’s making waves because she’s so dang good. If you need any proof, just watch the video.
In an interview with the Rolling Stone magazine, she said:
“A lot of being a guitarist, especially in L.A., is being in the right place at the right time. But more than anything, you have to be prepared — be better than anyone else out there, and leave no doubt with your playing.”
Amen to that!
