Orianthi is a 31-year-old Australian guitarist known as one of the most spectacular and dynamic guitar shredders presently in business. She had featured in the re-make of “We are the world” and appeared on American Idol. Story has it that king of pop Micheal Jackson selected her as his on-tour guitarist because of her talent after she played the “Beat It” solo made famous by the legendary Eddie Van Halen. She has worked with artists like Alice Cooper, Carrie Underwood, Steve Vai and Carlos Santana.
In 2009, when Carlos Santana was asked about Oranthi in an interview, he said “If I was going to pass the baton to somebody, she would be my first choice.”
