He has been suggested a couple of times before (last time was in 2007), and it was taken to JRF for evaluation, but I'm not sure what happened with the case:

I merely post these old locked topics for reference purposes:

I think the question is: Has he made a studio album with own compositions that are like this? If so, then by all means he should be added.

I had a look at the JRF chart - he's already cleared for addition. I also added the album to PF ... looks interesting judging from reviews, but unfortunately it's out of print and not available as a download.

I'll ask the JRF team. If they're OK with the addition, would you want to help with the bio and the discography Anthony?

Bio:


Guthrie Govan is a jazz-fusion guitarist from Essex, England. Drawing from a wide range of influences, Govan plays a dynamic form of jazz-rock that combines elements of blues and shred guitar with the creativity of Steve Vai and the virtuosity of Joe Satriani. Thus, his music is eclectic, creative, and technically proficient.

In 1993, Govan won a "Guitarist of the Year" competition in Guitarist magazine. This publicity landed him a job as a contributor to another magazine called Guitar Techniques. He has also worked as a guitar instructor at various institutions. He played with Asia on their 2001 album Aura, as well as the tour that followed its release. Subsequently, he formed GPS with John Payne and Jay Schellen. He's also played with the British electronic group The Young Punx and is a member of a jazz-fusion band called The Fellowship,

Govan's first solo album, Erotic Cakes, was released in 2006. It's recommended for fans of instrumentally-driven, guitar-centered, jazz-influenced rock.

My bad if it's on a to-be-added list. But it seems like some bands that have been suggested after this have been added.

Long queue of viable candidates and few volunteers there to add them properly. You are more than welcome to write up a biog and discog, and somebody will upload it for you acknowledging your efforts.
