This one of a kind panoramic oversized print, photographed by Dustin Jack and signed by both Phil X and Dustin Jack gives an almost 3D electric appearance.
Here is a chance to own a very rare conversation piece of The Drills frontman and Bon Jovi guitarist, the amazing Phil X.
Philip Eric "Phil X" Xenidis is a Canadian musician, singer and songwriter. He replaced Richie Sambora as Bon Jovi's lead guitarist in 2013 after his departure from the band and will be featured on the band's upcoming 2016 album.
Phil X is a prolific session guitarist, having played on albums by Tommy Lee, Methods of Mayhem, Avril Lavigne, Kelly Clarkson, Orianthi, Rob Zombie, Chris Daughtry, Alice Cooper, Thousand Foot Krutch and many others. He wrote the song "Tired" and also played guitar on Tommy Lee's Tommyland: The Ride album. He has appeared with Tommy Lee and Bon Jovi on Ellen and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Phil X was featured in the "making of" video for the movie Josie and the Pussycats. He acted as a music coach and taught the young actresses to appear as if they were actually playing their instruments.
In 2011 Phil X substituted for Bon Jovi's lead guitarist Richie Sambora, who missed 13 dates after entering rehab, and filled in for Sambora on the US and Europe leg of the 2013 tour, after Sambora dropped out due to personal reasons. In mid-2013 he filled in for Sambora during a number of dates of the Because We Can tour, including their only Italian date in Milan, the entire British leg of the tour including the Isle of Wight Festival and Hyde Park, the South African leg, the South American leg, and the Australian leg of the tour. In November 2014, Jon Bon Jovi finally revealed to a reporter that Sambora had officially left the band, saying "He's quit. He's gone. No hard feelings." Since then, Xenidis has played with Bon Jovi on their 2015 World Tour including concerts in Kuala Lumpur, Abu Dhabi and Tel Aviv.
Xenidis has used a vast range of guitars during his session and live work. His most notable guitars are his ESP LTD Viper, which he refers to as the "sticker guitar". In 2012, Xenidis received a signature guitar from Yamaha, in 2015 followed the release of a signature model made by Framus.
Phil invented the ‘Flip Stick,’a specially modified replacement for the usual whammy bar on Floyd-Rose-equipped guitars.
His demonstrations of rare and vintage guitars have had nearly 50 million views on the frettedamericana YouTube channel.
