Sevenstring.org Interview: Misha "Bulb" Mansoor of Periphery
Interview with Misha Mansoor, aka Bulb, guitarist for Periphery. Questions submitted by all the sevenstring.org members.
Interview: Misha "Bulb" Mansoor of Periphery

Misha Mansoor

Sevenstring.org: How long have you been playing guitar, and what has been the major footstep in your playing that helped you get to where you are now?

Bulb: I first picked up a guitar when i was about 14, but I really was into drums back then so I pretty much just strummed on it for about 3 years making songs that would showcase the drums more than anything (mainly becaues I couldn't play more than a Drop-D powerchord back then!). But when I went to college, I couldn't really play drums anymore so I focused my attention fully on the guitar. I think the big jump in playing skill happened when I was trying to become John Petrucci. I was seriously practicing anywhere from 4-8 hours almost every day just learning Dream...

Damn, that's gotta be the best interview I've seen on this site! If only all the interviewee's could go into such detail. Awesome!

Another member of the ever-growing Bulb fanclub!

Mr Blub, I totally dig your stuff... you are among my top 3 favs of all time (Meshuggah & Nevermore being the other 2).

Really looking forward to that EP.

Awesome interview.

Bulb, if you're a fatass then you need to start using Rockfield Fatass pickups!

Love your tone Misha. You have the best sound. I'd give both my nuts for 1/8 of the gear you own. AxeFX is sounding fatAssery. I dig your electro side as well. Hope to meet ya one day.
