Also New On Spotify

Also on Spotify is VG’s “Have Guitar Will Travel” podcast, hosted by James Patrick Regan. The twice-monthly episodes feature guitar players, builders, dealers, and more, all sharing their personal stories, tales from the road, studio, or shop, and their love of great guitars and amps.

Dave Miner

In Episode 49 of “Have Guitar Will Travel” features host James Patrick Regan speaking with Dave Miner, chairman of the board at Benedetto Guitars. A noted collector who appreciates vintage Gibson archtops, pre-war Martins, and early D’Angelicos as well as Benedettos, his passion for the instrument started in his youth. He and James touch on an array of topics including Dave’s primary business, Miner Family Winery, how he started playing and collecting guitars, and some of the fascinating people he has come to know in the business.

Mike Varney

In the new episode of “Have Guitar Will Travel,” host James Patrick Regan speaks with the legendary Mike Varney, founder of Shrapnel Records. After discovering Yngwie Malmsteen in a record store, Mike started Shrapnel when he was just 22 years old. The label became home for a bevy of shredders in the ’80s, including guitar heroes like Leslie West, Rick Derringer, Pat Travers, and Michael Schenker. He digs deep into the philosophy that has made Shrapnel so successful under his guidance, explains why he’s so fond of Gibson and Epiphone guitars, and gets into his recent work with Gravity Amplifiers.
