Former Windows chief Jim Allchin on life as a blues man

We’ve enjoyed following the musical pursuits of Jim Allchin, the former Microsoft Windows chief, since he left the company a few years ago.

Allchin, an accomplished guitarist, recently released a new rock-blues album called Overclocked, a nod to his roots in the computer industry.

And we just came across this video about the making of the album, which also provides a behind-the-scenes glimpse into Allchin’s post-Microsoft life.

Our big takeaway: This sure looks a lot more fun than trying to figure out the nuances of User Account Controls in Windows Vista.

Watch the video above, and get more info on Allchin at his official website.
