    160 - Celebrating Jeff Beck with Steve Lukather

    160 - Celebrating Jeff Beck with Steve Lukather

    For fans of guitar, it’s hard to imagine a world without JEFF BECK. To help us process this unfathomable musical loss, we “land the ‘copter” in front of STEVE LUKATHER’s house, where we go inside and join the Toto/Ringo Starr guitar ace by a warm fire and get his take on his friend Jeff Beck’s life, legacy, and music, as well as his thoughts on the profound influence Beck has had on how most of us play electric guitar. And, yes: Luke has had plenty of exciting adventures with Jeff Beck, which he relives here.

    Tip: For a deep dive into Steve Lukather’s playing, music, and career, go back and listen to him plug in with us on Ep. 64 of this show: No Guitar Is Safe, “The guitar show where guitar heroes plug in.”

    Hosted by JUDE GOLD. Presented by GUITAR PLAYER magazine.

    158 - Deep Purple's Simon McBride Shares His Mesmerizing Guitar Approaches

    Ready to “fly the ‘copter” all the way to Germany? Well, being that I was just on tour opening shows for Deep Purple all over Europe (so cool!), you know there was NO WAY I was not going to land an interview with their brilliant new guitarist, Simon McBride.

    This exciting episode takes us all the way to the KP Arena in Oberhausen, for an inspiring backstage guitar hang with the Irish 6-string virtuoso, who plugs in his custom Paul Reed Smith and demonstrates for you many of the captivating guitar approaches he employs each night on stage with his legendary bandmates — Ian Gillan, Ian Paice, Roger Glover, and Don Airey. (Bonus: Concert clips from the show later that night!)

    Simon also reflects on what it means to take over the guitar chair from longtime Deep Purple guitarist Steve Morse — who, after 28 years in the band, stepped down earlier this year — as well as what it’s like follow in the footsteps of Deep Purple’s founding guitarist, Ritchie Blackmore; trade licks each night with the band’s formidable keyboardist, his good friend Don Airey; and start off one of the world's most iconic rock songs each night by playing the mega famous riff that opens "Smoke on the Water."

    Thank you for listening!

CjO APPLE ,

it was interesting but now… need more.

« At first sight it was interesting but often it just sounds exactly like the GuitarPlayer magazine, full of sound patches and gadgets publicities, full of effects and full of " topics in the same higgledy-piggledy bag. After more than three years to try to listen this show, i think i went around the house and have nothing more to discover. »

This is the one

I listen to podcasts all day at work, I have like 17 in my library, I learn more from this podcast than any other guitar theory cast or anything. Jude got it right. Just getting to hear these masters play and describe their thought process is like a mini masters class every episode.
