West asked Chuck "Fast Strat" Williams to track guitars to "Stevie Ray" after West saw Williams' famous guitar solos on Youtube. Williams has millions of views of his solos and won Epiphone's 2007 Best 'Guitar Solo Contest.' The other "Stevie Ray" guitarist, James Baker (War / Edgar Winter), used Steve Lukather's (Toto) "Hold The Line" Fender amplifier to track guitar. In the studio Tommy Shannon (Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble) uses a P-bass that is the only instrument in the world ever played by both Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimi Hendrix.
Following the video release of Standing On The Moon by Scott West & Sex On Sunday, West's band was the top ranked band on MTV's "Best Music On Campus" for 36 straight weeks from the week ending January 12th to the week ending September 13th. West's upcoming solo album AUSTIN will be released in 2009.
