Axel Rudi Pell
Axel Rudi Pell (born June 27, 1960) is a German guitar player, playing melodic heavy metal. He started off with the band Steeler (1984–1988) before leaving to start his solo career in 1989 with the eponymous band Axel Rudi Pell. During this time, he has played with such drummers as Jörg Michael, Mike Terrana and singers Jeff Scott Soto and Rob Rock. He plays a classic traditional melodic heavy metal, predictably guitar-heavy but less flashy than Yngwie Malmsteen, with an emphasis on softer ballads as evidenced by three separate ballad compilations over the years.
Axel Rudi Pell's latest album is Tales of the Crown.
SPV Records released a live DVD on February 25, 2008, titled Live over Europe, which includes the full performance from the Rock Hard Festival in 2007, and comes with a bonus disc which includes live footage from Pell's own archive.
