Interview: Bret Michaels Band Guitarist and Producer Pete Evick Talks About Get Your Ride On
posted on 2012-02-07

excerpt from guitarworld.com article
In his work as a solo artist, Bret Michaels' right-hand man is guitarist Pete Evick, a multitalented musician who, in addition to playing guitar in the Bret Michaels Band, has also served as a co-songwriter, producer, mixer and musical director for the group. On the rare occasion he finds himself with some free time, the guitarist also pursues his own projects, which include studio work for a variety of artists as well as recording and performing with his long running band, Evick.

Recently, Evick took a few minutes from his always busy schedule to chat with Guitar World about the newest Bret Michaels Band song, "Get Your Ride On," which is currently being used as the opening song to the new season of Monster Energy AMA Supercross on SPEED TV, and features guest guitar spots from Def Leppard's Phil Collen and My Darkest Days' Sal Costa. Evick also discussed how he came to play with Michaels, and what he and the band have on tap for the future.

What gear did you use on the track?

Guitar wise, I used my Dean Soltero and Bret used his Dean Z - Bret is actually playing throughout the song, basically everything but the lead and what I call texture parts. And that's him killing it at the beginning. I don't know what guitars the other guys used, though I know Phil's tracks were recorded with GTR from Waves. Otherwise, I'm a big tech guy, so I use emulators and plug-ins, and I also used AmpliTube 3-the Orange amp model. We recorded the song at the studio on Bret's ranch, and also flew in some vocals that were done at my house on the east coast, which is also where I mixed it. Sal and Phil did their parts in their home studios.
