Ex-Alice Cooper Guitarist Steve Hunter Releases New Album

Steve Hunter, the journeyman guitarist featured on recordings from Alice Cooper, Lou Reed and Peter Gabriel, has released a solo album of blues material called The Manhattan Blues Project.

The LP features an impressive list of guests including Joe Perry, Joe Satriani, bassist Tony Levin, and actor Johnny Depp.

In an interview with ABC Radio, Hunter said his album is a departure from the pack of New York-themed records:

"Most albums I hear in regards to New York generally [are] jazzy, which is cool, but I wanted to do something different. I wanted to do something in a bluesy way, because I kind of saw the more soulful part of Manhattan."

Hunter played on Cooper's Billion Dollar Babies, as well as Reed's Berlin and Rock 'n' Roll Animal.
