Dave Kilminster

Dave Kilminster

Dave Kilminster shot to fame when he won the original Guitarist of the Year contest in 1991.

In recent years Dave was on the road with Roger Waters as lead guitarist and vocalist in the extraordinary global staging of Dark Side of the Moon. Fans know Dave from his work along side rock luminaries John Wetton, Carl Palmer, Ken Hensley, and John Young, among others. Dave was a founding member of Qango, the band that featured Wetton, Palmer and Young and which introduced him to Emerson. Before helping form the Keith Emerson Band, Kilminster joined Emerson in a highly regarded reunion of Emerson's The Nice. The reunion resulted in the live recording Vivacitas and launched the the Keith Emerson Band.

His place at Licklibrary was secured very early on when he demonstrated mastery of advanced techniques and knowledge of Steve Vai material. Away from this he's a respected teacher with a series of lessons and transcriptions in Guitar Techniques magazine, and a period teaching at Guilford's ACM
