Monte joins Madonna in the streets of Paris for acoustic gig!

It was a magnificent, yet touching show in Paris last night where Madonna invited her son David on stage to perform the “Redemption song” with her but the Queen of Pop also did a special mini acoustic gig in the streets of Paris with Monte and David to sing “GhostTown”, “Like A Prayer” and “Imagine”.

Monte is featured on the new Confrontational album

Confrontational is a European darkwave project that is turning heads with ass kicking new record A Dance Of Shadows.

How did Monte Pittman become involved? He is so busy but seems like such a great dude. And you and I were talking at length earlier about liking his days in PRONG.

Yes, Monte is really busy recording and touring with MADONNA these days. I am a really huge PRONG fan, and I’ve had my first taste of Monte’s guitar playing through his fretwork on SCORPIO RISING.

His latest release, THE POWER OF THREE, is one of the best metal albums of these recent years and truly kept me sane during some tough times in 2014. When I wrote a song that I thought was fitting to his style, I sent it over to Monte and asked him what he thought. He came up with some really perfect riffs and one hell of a soaring solo for “Like A Curse”, turning it into an instant favorite of mine. I find Monte’s attitude truly inspirational. I’m forever grateful for his contribution and I’m looking forward to seeing him performing live someday soon, hopefully.
