Judging in the light of recent times, Adil Rashid may be looked upon as one of the youngest and fast-growing guitarists of the Indian music circuit.
Just 27, he has already cultivated on various styles, experienced a bit of the lime-light and has had the great and rare honour of being associated with the Gibson franchise.
Having the dreams and aspirations of becoming a successful and innovative musician, he had wanted to be linked with the Gibson name ever since his days in the St.Thomas’ School Band.
It was a happy co-incidence that the very first electric guitar that he owned was but an Epiphone Special II, which he received as a gift from his uncle from the USA.
Driven by rigorous hours of hard-work and the urge to explore the unknown depths of music, he set out on a path which the general crowd would classify as rather ambitious and uncertain.
From his early years as a guitarist, the music fraternity of Calcutta realized that he was not just another guy with a guitar, winning almost every competition and bagging the "best guitarist" in almost all the competitions he had participated in.
