Around these parts Destructod have always dug the work of guitarist and artist Chris Kline, better known as "vertexguy." Even in our earliest days they rocked out to his kickass versions of songs from Lords of Thunder and Contra, and they were also there to watch him shred at Video Games Live at GDC last year. And they loved his return performance at the E4All Expo's VGL too.
Chris continues to rock, both professionally and musically. Destructoid caught up with him to talk about his new job at PAIN developer Idol Minds, his new music in Pinball Hall of Fame: The Williams Collection, and his upcoming performance at the Iron Man of Gaming festival. Oh, and they hear that he's just finished up a negotiations with a major publisher to do a song for an upcoming AAA title.
