    In a perfect world, but he doesn't even give autographs.

    Frampton for sure. Really loved his interview with Rick Beato. I like him that much more now.

    Gordie Johnson from Big Sugar. He signed my partscaster Strat after a killer gig.

    No, they wouldn't. George likely spent at least 5 hours a day to achieve that level. I don't know if I could reach that level practicing 16 hours a day.

    The first one who came to my mind was Ry Cooder. He seems to have such a wealth of interaction, experience, knowledge, and insight. Richard Thompson came up, as well, as I started to mull over the question. I've met him, a couple of times. He's so sharp and so funny. He'd be a great hang! My one encounter with Bill Frisell was a bit disappointing. I felt he had much more to say through his guitar than in conversation. Socially awkward, maybe? Wayne Krantz is also a very interesting guy. I live in his hometown. When I met him, he treated me like an old friend. He's another deep thinker. Bonnie Raitt was one I kept coming back to. First, I have an enormous crush on her. Second, she's been in such close proximity to so many greats. She seems like a terrific person.

    As for the departed, George Harrison and Duane Allman, without question.

    Skunk Baxter - if we ever run out of music stuff to discuss (unlikely), we can talk missiles!

    So many who have already been mentioned would be fun to hang out with, so I'll say Sammy Hagar. Aside from being a big fan (both solo and with VH), he comes across as a really cool person who'd be fun to hang out and chat about anything that came up. I'd probably steer the conversation to cars pretty quickly.

    Hard to pick just one, but, for me a toss up between Marty Stuart and Nels Cline.

    I would love to ask Jimmy page how he makes his solo playing so loose.
