Chasta talks to Al Pitrelli of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, who is also known for his work with Megadeth and Alice Cooper, to talk about COVID, remote concerts and much more.

Over the last year and a half, artist around the world over have found ways to adapt to the new world that COVID has formed. Pitrelli says even being a well-known artist doesnt make it any easier.
