Celebrating Queen Guitarist
Chris Gordon - Lead Guitar
"It was the first time I heard Brian May's guitar bit in We Will Rock You" says Chris when asked what brought him to the guitar. "I remember hearing that sound, I was nine years old and I asked my sister what I was hearing. She said it was a guitar, and I said I want to make those sounds!" ... So began the journey that has been his life pursuit.
The pursuit of creation through the art of music. Bands such as Queen, Kiss, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Black Sabbath, UFO, MSG, and Yngwie Malmsteen became his early inspiration. Putting his first band in High School Chris began playing throughout the Philadelphia area, soon becoming a sought after guitarist for the area's top Rock Bands.
At 21 Chris Gordon relocated to LA where he recorded for Warner Brother's artist Urban Gorilla before moving to Nashville where he landed the lead guitar slot with Michael Mason touring the country for five solid years. In early 2000 Chris joined the Rasputin Musical Production performing alongside Vocal sensation Ted Neely and contributing his guitar histrionics to the Rasputin album. In 2009 Chris was on the road again with various Tribute Acts including a return to his early roots with a Tribute to Queen and an Yngwie Malmsteen Tribute Trial By Fire.
In 2017 Chris and his band The Mad Trio landed the coveted House Band position for Philadelphia Classic Rock station WMGK 102.9, who would hire Chris as an evening DJ spinning the very music he has grown up learning! In 2020, as the world went into Quarantine, Chris wrote, recorded, and produced his two albums The Adventures Of Princess Sparkle Fingers and the brand new Chronicles Of Chaos.
Chris Gordon is hard at work rehearsing his new band and hoping to get back to the stage with CELEBRATING QUEEN!
