Rockstar Brad Gillis of Night Ranger Reinvents Himself
with TV Broadcasting and His Much Anticipated Solo Album
Meet World Renowned Rockstar Brad Gillis who is most known for being lead guitarist for Night Ranger. Some of Night Ranger’s greatest hits include “Don’t Tell Me You Love Me,” “(You Can Still) Rock in America”, and “Sister Christian”. Night Ranger’s music has also been featured prominently in dozens of films, from Sixteen Candles to Boogie Nights.
Brad Gillis is also well known for filling the shoes of the recently deceased Randy Rhoads on tour with Ozzy Osbourne in 1982 and his stunning renditions of Black Sabbath classics on Ozzy’s live Speak of the Devil album.
Over the past 20 years Brad has been placing music and has recorded hundreds of music themes that are regularly heard on ESPN, Fox Sports, and Fuse TV broadcasts. Today he is still touring and recording with Night Ranger, but his gig in broadcast music has become his “regular” job.
As an avid collector of vintage guitars since the 1990s, it was only a natural progression that this new chapter of Brad’s musical career coincided with his passion for both collecting and playing on them.
In addition, he continues to have his vast library of solo music placed into video games, TV and Film and as well as continue to share his music with his dedicated fans.
Brad’s innovative use of his floating Floyd Rose tremolo on Night Ranger’s early recordings helped define the vernacular of modern shred guitar, including using the bar to pull notes up, drop or raise notes to pitch, and create buzzing warbles by flicking the bar.
Brad Gillis is also using many of his vintage guitars on a long-awaited solo album that will be released soon as well as working with Night Ranger on their next studio album.
