Uli Jon Roth
Born in Düsseldorf, Germany in 1954, ULI JON ROTH rose to fame as a teen-ager in the early 1970s as the lead guitarist for the SCORPIONS.
During his five-year tenure with Germany’s most famous band, Uli developed a unique and revolutionary approach to guitar playing, incorporating classical music and advanced improvisational techniques. He went on to form his own band, ELECTRIC SUN, and continued to push the boundaries of guitar playing with his innovative use of the six-octave Sky Guitar that he invented.
Uli Jon Roth is mainly known for his ground-breaking contributions to the vocabulary of electric guitar playing. He is regarded as one of the last living protagonists of pure, classic melodic rock guitar from the era of the Sixties and Seventies. Uli Jon Roth is now widely acknowledged as belonging to a rapidly dwindling handful of notable players who are still active and can still transport the magical aura of that glorious era of rock in live concerts on the stages of this world. Over the years, Uli has influenced generations of younger guitarists – including many name players such as Eddie van Halen, Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Billy Corgan, and Kirk Hammett – and he is seen as one of the great innovators in his genre. Uli revolutionized the scope of expression of his favorite instrument by being the first to introduce sophisticated virtuoso violin techniques and many other new ideas into the guitar vocabulary.
Uli Jon Roth is also a prolific composer who has written and performed symphonic music with orchestras. He has also released several important solo albums throughout his career, featuring a diverse range of musical styles. He continues to tour the world and record, inspiring generations of musicians with his unparalleled creativity and passion for music.
