Her marriage to Warren DeMartini

Kathy Naples is married to American musician Warren Justin DeMartini, who was born on April 10, 1963. She is most known for being the lead guitarist for the glam metal group Ratt, which rose to fame worldwide in the 1980s. Kathy Naples’s husband Warren DeMartini, the youngest of five sons, was born in Chicago, Illinois, on April 10, 1963. His early years were spent in the Illinois suburb of River Forest. Later on, the family moved to San Diego. The rock band that practised in the family basement, led by DeMartini’s older brothers Bernard and James, influenced him to take an interest in the genre. In Preston, Minnesota, his grandmother was also a musician, providing piano accompaniment for silent films.

When Kathy Naples’s husband, Warren DeMartini, was about seven or eight years old, his mother gave in to his desire and purchased him a guitar. Because the tuning pegs were inexpensive, Warren claims he had difficulty learning to play it at first because the instrument would frequently go out of tune. He became angry and broke the guitar, much like he had witnessed Pete Townshend of the Who live. That was the last guitar he would be given as a gift. He had to obtain a job at 14 to save enough cash for a new electric guitar—a replica of Cimar’s Les Paul. DeMartini learned the song “Sunshine of Your Love” by Cream by ear for the first time.

At age fifteen, Warren performed for the first time in front of a small audience at La Jolla High School in San Diego with his band, the Plague. At this point, he was recognized as one of the San Diego region’s most gifted and in-demand young guitarists. He earned “Best New Guitar Player in San Diego” at Guitar Trader on Clairemont Mesa Blvd. the year he first registered. In 1981, he received his high school diploma. After enrolling at a nearby college, DeMartini was invited to join Mickey Ratt. This band would later transform into the hugely popular 1980s metal group Ratt in Los Angeles during the first semester of studies.

Kathy Naples’s husband, Warren DeMartini, was named one of the top 10 “hair metal” guitarists of the 1980s by VH1. Warren occasionally uses a finger vibrato that is reminiscent of George Lynch. Rather than bending the string across the frets, Allan Holdsworth frequently employed a similar method, which involves sliding the fretting finger longitudinally, back and forth along the string, to accomplish the periodic rising and lowering of the note.

For the fingertip to create friction on the string and enable such pushing and pulling, therefore lowering and increasing the pitch, as well as frets to halt the strings, moderate downward finger pressure and relatively light strings are required.
