    well i guess everything he relesed was under band named Impellitteri not Chris Impellitteri. that may be why there's not much listeners.

    He's from CT? I still think Blues Saraceno is the best player from CT. Impellitteri comes in second, but he still rocks.

    TRY his "Tonight i fly" ,or "Paradise" songs: they are cool, and there are also insane solos.
