Nita Strauss has been very busy this week at the annual NAMM music convention in Anaheim, CA making various apearances throughout the event, but the biggest moment for her was the announcement that she has become the first ever female Ibanez Signature artist. Nita has endorsed Ibanez guitars for years, but becoming a Ibanez signature artist obviously means a huge mount to her. So much that she streamed the announcement live on facebook yesterday and was almost crying when saw her signature 'Ibanez Jiva' guitar for the first time. You can check out the video on Nita's facebook page and the full specs on the new guitar will be posted shortly. Congratulations Nita!
Also at NAMM this weekend were Alice himself at the Sure Microphone stand, Michael Bruce and Tommy Henriksen.
The new Beasto Blanco 'Live In Berlin' CD is now out and has been arriving worldwide. It's excellent and highly recommended. Rockbladet.se have a new interview with Calico Cooper talking about Beasto and her career.
