    So, if we ever elect an Emperor in this fine country, I vote for Greg Koch.

    That is all.

    He scares me. In a very good way.

    'Emperor Gristlemeister'? Seems redundant.

    I remember seeing him many years ago (before his "Fender gig.) He was playing a blond 335 at a club called Bunkers in West Allis. Even back then he was a monster player. Years later the band I was in played the slot before him at Summerfest. After Greg came Buddy Guy. That was a gig I'll always remember!
    still dont get the "Gristle" thing though. Gristle is something that I bite into and dont like.......

    I was watching a bunch of the NAMM interviews he did for Wildwood Guitars - an amazing player and one hell of a funny guy...

    Right after I bought "From The Attic", I saw him at Summer Fest. Great player and great entertainer with a hell of a sence of humor.

    Well, he obviously doesn't post here much since he first came on board - just checked - but his screen name is none other than "Gristleman."

    The best thing about Greg is that he doesn't take himself, or even his enormous talent and technical abilities, that seriously.

    That's a rare quality, my friends.

    That said, I'd rather watch Greg "goof around" any day, than watch 95% of the "great" guitarists make guitar faces and "be" geniuses.

    [Check out his Wildwood demo clips.]

    He posted this clip to his Facebook page about a half hour ago- the drummer is his 17 year old son, filling in for Tom Brechtlein, with Roscoe Beck on bass.

    For those who aren't familiar, Roscoe and Tom are The Blue Line, as in Robben Ford & TBL.

    Not bad for no rehearsal as a three-piece.

    Greg Koch is all that and a bag of chips. Amazing player, and a hilarious guy. Check out his interviews with Davy Knowles and Johnny A from the NAMM show this year - dude is like the Robin Williams of guitar humor.

    Here's some video of Greg throwing down on a blonde 335.

    Funny, I was just watching some of Greg's videos for the first time this week. He is killer! Could you guys suggest some albums of his to grab?
