Seymour Duncan Artist and Their Pickups
Rock In Rio Festival
In May 2010, Rock in Rio, one of the world’s largest Brazilian outdoor music festivals, made Lisbon Portugal its home for a week of some of the best concerts from the world’s biggest acts. Over five nights, the festival featured names as varied as Shakira, John Mayer, Elton John, Muse, and Miley Cyrus. The last night in Lisbon was “Metal Night” with an all-star lineup that featured Megadeth, Motorhead and Soulfy – all bands that rely on Seymour Duncan for their tone.
Evan Skopp, our Head of Artist Relations, was on hand to spend some pre-show quality time with Megadeth’s front man Dave Mustaine (LiveWires Mustaine Model) and bassist David Ellefson (Quarter-Pound for Jazz® and P-Bass®). Afterwards he relaxed with Motorhead’s Phil Campbell (Custom Custom). Also in attendance was Soulfly’s Max Cavelara (Duncan Distortion). Said Evan, “Whether they’re playing our active or passive pickups, it’s always great to see the biggest pros in the metal world embracing Seymour Duncan.”
