    What Makes This Song Great : Whole Lotta Love

    I'm not sure his evaluation changed anything for rock music aficionados, but if you're a casual listener there was some really interesting stuff. The drums, the bass, just how good Plant was, the theremin and recording tricks, doubled voice track, panning guitar and reverb opposite, all eye...

    Dean Guitars - Quality or Lack Of (my Rant)

    I've had two Deans, a korean 79v and a czech Evo. The V was well made, sounded good, played awesome. The Evo was outstanding top to bottom but too heavy to be perfect.

    What’s some of your favorite 80’s Pop Guitar playing?

    Two bands I forgot to mention earlier are Huey Lewis and the News and Night Ranger. I heard I Wanna New Drug on the radio today and it turned on a light. Songs like Don't Tell Me You Love Me can always be playing imho.

    What’s some of your favorite 80’s Pop Guitar playing?

    I'm gonna omit all the awesome hair metal because that is about my fave genre. Bowie's "Let's Dance" record with Nile Rodgers is a fave.

    What was the best 'surprise' concert you've been to:

    Two come to me mind. First, went to see Metallica/GnR in Seattle. The original opener cancelled so Motorhead took the spot. Loud, fast, awesome. Second, Staind opening for Korn. I took my younger bro, his first show, because he was a korn fan. Staind was outstanding.

    Hardcore Honky Tonk - give us your best one-two punch

    Maybe not the right genre, but this says honky tonk to me. Side note, Exene Cervenka and Los Straitjackets cover this and it's awesome, maybe better.

    Ibanez RG 550 is the go to. Not too spendy, decent stock pickups, killer floyd style bridge, shred thin neck.

    5 songs to learn to become better.

    Stray Cat Strut -Stray Cats. Classic rockabilly with some deceptively clever choices. Wind Cries Mary - Hendrix. Both notes and delivery force you to concentrate Curse of Castle Dragon - Paul Gilbert. Mix of shred, patterns, and right/left hand cohesion. Crazy Train - Ozzy. The fills and solo...

    First Garage Band Hit?

    Dude, you can listen to that recording and not imagine them in a garage with a 4-track? Even though they were in a "proper studio" they didn't use it like one.

    I played a kamikaze and it must have been set up poorly because I had to fight that thing.

    Pre-Slide It In Whitesnake - generally overlooked stuff?

    Whitesnake wasn't Whitesnake until Sykes imho. Yes, previous work was solid, but Sykes writing and playing pushed them to superstardom in the 80s.

    Anger Rising. Holy hell what a riff.

    Very talented, often overlooked as an influence.

    Are y'all hip to Southern Culture on the Skids?

    Daddy was a Preacher was the breakthrough song for me. Fun, great tune, fantastic imagery. That song got me into them, which led to others like Horton Heat and Robbie Fulks.

    If music was your job would you lose interest?

    While I love music and playing I don't love teaching, or running a store. The job would need to be on the creative end, or maybe talent acquisition.

    The only Godin I haven't liked is the radiator. The one I had was a noisy mess. Loved my lg-90 though, and would like a Montreal.
