    Guitar-muse.com has done an interview with Bryan Beller and Guthro Govan, to coincide with the upcoming release of Culture Clash.

    Here's an excerpt:

    "The Aristocrats were born out of serendipitous happenstance back in 2011, when bassist Bryan Beller and drummer Marco Minnemann approached guitarist Guthrie Govan to be a last minute fill-in for a one-off gig at NAMM. The chemistry between the three was so undeniable, later that year they recorded and released an album."

    I found this great WIKIPEDIA article on the history and usage of the Musical Clefs. Here's an excerpt:

    A clef (French: clef; “key”) is a musical symbol used to indicate the pitch of written notes. Placed on one of the lines at the beginning of the stave, it indicates the name and pitch of the notes on that line. This line serves as a reference point by which the names of the notes on any other line or space of the stave may be determined. Only one clef that references a note in a space rather than on a line has ever been used.
