Country Music Hall of Famer Vince Gill ponders songs, favorite guitars, his path to joining the Eagles, and his new solo album. We also sit with Nashville session ace Jedd Hughes – today’s greatest “heard him even if you never heard of him” guitarist. Plus, we reveal the reality of being John D’Angelico, and tell the stories behind Benson amps and the “lawsuit” all-star Apollo Deluxe!
We talk new music with Steve Van Zandt, Samantha Fish, Reza Khan, Anders Osborne, Joe Restivo, bassist Mike Watt, and Stephen McBean (of Black Mountain).
Dan Erlewine teams with renowned guitar builder Roger Fritz to restore a glorious vintage Kay Thin Twin. We also revisit the compelling first album by Spirit, Wolf Marshall digs into Gary Moore’s landmark 1990 album, Still Got The Blues, and we speak with Janglebox founder Steve Lasko.
Learn why we recommend the Reverend Greg Koch Gristlemaster, Fuchs Audio’s ODS Classic, the Eastman SB59v-G, Kay’s K8700VTS Jazz Special, the Guild F-512 Maple, and James May’s Ultra Tonic Pickup! Finally, our “Hit List” reviewers tell you why the latest by Vince Gill, Traffic, Samantha Fish, Johnny Hiland, Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Anders Osborne, The Police, Joe Restivo, Pure Prairie League, Johnny Thunders, Willie Nelson, and others is worth a listen. Also, fans of true folk will not want to miss Dan Forte’s “Check This Action” deep dive on Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger.
