Rick Vito
Rick Vito Rick Vito is one of the few guitarists who didn't just put his name on a guitar as an endorser; as his own guitar designer, he came up with the art deco Streamliner, then the Slingshot for the Reverend company, and Reverend's Rick Vito Signature model. A glance at the roster of artists Vito has recorded and/or toured with makes you wonder how he found time to monkey with guitar designs. Other than drums and sax, Vito plays virtually all of the instruments, although "Help Me Lord" finds him playing solo on acoustic slide - with his feeling as deep as the guitar's tuning.

Rick Vito - Rattlesnake Shake
Covering the Peter Green title track may be a subliminal (or subconscious) way of reminding listeners of his early-'90s stint with Fleetwood Mac, but Vito was a Green devotee well before Green had vacated the band 20 years prior, let alone before joining the group himself. As the list above suggests, Vito can adapt to a multitude of situations, but here he and his Lucky Devils don't stray far from roadhouse blues - the tone set by the opening Elmore James-inspired "My Baby's Hot. As evidenced by his original "The Lucky Devil," Magic Sam is another of Rick's heroes; he's put words to Sam's boogie instrumental "Lookin' Good" - no mean feat, since playing the thing is hard enough, forget about trying to sing at the same time. He reverses the formula on "A Change Is Gonna Come," a moving instrumental arrangement of Sam Cooke's timeless classic, featuring Vito's haunting slide. The CD includes two other instrumentals: the relaxed, self-explanatory "Slide The Blues" and another Mac cover, "Albatross. Even transferring parts of the melody to slide, as with "Rattlesnake," Vito stays close to the original - perhaps a bit too much, instead of injecting more of his own personality. As if merely playing guitar so well weren't enough, the multi-faceted frontman also designed the Rick Vito Signature Slingshot axe he uses here, for Reverend Guitars.

Reverend Rick Vito
Naylor's latest creation is a collaboration with Rick Vito, the renowned guitarist who has worked with Fleetwood Mack, Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, Todd Rundgren, Bob Seger, and others. The Vito's simple design and clean lines share all the elegance we've grown accustomed to with Reverend, while the custom sandblasted graphics (designed by Vito himself) add a high degree of funk.
