Paul Allen and the Underthinkers' 'Six Strings from Hell'

Paul Allen is more than a tech head. The Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist also rocks out with his band the Underthinkers, and the group is almost ready with their debut album, Everywhere at Once. Allen teamed up with artists like Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart, Derek Trucks, Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders and more for his new record, and on "Six Strings From Hell," Allen digs into mean guitar riffs with Joe Walsh of the Eagles. Allen curls some twang and grit into the blues-rock track while Walsh's weathered vocals relate the immense power of an electric guitar.

Everywhere at Once will be out tomorrow. All proceeds will benefit the non-profit EMP Museum in Seattle, Washington.
