Barragan Goes Inside His Rig

October 15, 2011


Larry Barragan keeps his rig simple, but that doesn’t mean he can’t get ample sound out of it.

With an arsenal of a Jackson RhoadsRR24s, a Phil Demmel Signature Jackson King V and a few other guitars, Barragan has been helping Houston metalheads Helstar rock hard since 1982.

“You can see I’m a Jackson guy,” Barragan told the camera in this behind-the-scenes interview, focusing on several familiar axes.

Having just finished up a 2011 tour off 2010’s Glory of Chaos, Helstar vocalist James Rivera has said in interviews that the band’s latest offering is “heavier” and thrasher.”
