Amps & Axes - #213 - Johnny Balmer
Hello 'Cast-a-holics and welcome to another dose of your favorite audio imbibe-ment, the Amps and Axes Podcast. In this installment the guys bring back a previous guest. A guru of the stomp; a master of the pedal-mod; someone who knows just what your pedal needs. He has also had some pretty cool build agreements to build some very unusual pedal-type devices, so please welcome back the man that puts his name on things you step on, Mr Johnny Balmer of Alchemy Audio. Enjoy.
Amps & Axes - #214 - Kyle Cook
Hey Hey 'CastFans and welcome to another offering in the episodic adventure known as Amps and Axes. In this installment the guys bring you a guitarist/singer/songwriter that has toured the world multiple times with a band that was a radio mainstay in the mid ,90's and early 2000's. Taking a bit of a hiatus so that their front man could become a ubiquitous radio voice as well, the group reunited to record yet another release in 2012. They recently completed their Brief History of Everything tour with The Counting Crows, so even if you have a Disease, feel Unwell, or it's 3AM, turn down the Bright Lights, find your happy place and please welcome, from Matchbox Twenty, Mr Kyle Cook. Enjoy!
Amps & Axes - #215 - Tim Rossi
Greetings Podcastonians and welcome to the infotainment vehicle that is your Amps and Axes Podcast. In this episode, the guys bring you a guitarist that hails from Southwest Florida, via LA, via Massachusetts. Being reared on vintage Rock N Roll via Aerosmith, Boston and later Extreme, primed him for his arrival in Florida and his eventual meeting with a classic rock icon who was resurrecting his old band's moniker. Place yourself in your favorite Podcast environment and please help us welcome guitarist and vocalist for the New Blackfoot, Mr Tim Rossi. Enjoy!
Amps & Axes - #216 - 2018 Winter NAMM Recap
Greetings listeners and welcome to yet another infotaining installment of your Amps and Axes Podcast. This week the guys are just back from the huge music trade show known as NAMM, so they bring back with them NAMMonia and other wonderful germs, as well as some ranting and oh yeah, a few nice words about some people and gear. Enter your Podcast listening environment and get ready for a little Jeff and Mick. Enjoy!
Amps & Axes - #217 - Rickey Medlocke
Greetings enjoyers of the 'cast world and welcome to the coolest one around, your Amps and Axes Podcast. In this week's offering the guys bring you some Rock N Roll Royalty. His band was among the Royalty of Southern Rock in the days when bands played Loud N Proud. Having eventually moved on from that band, he has occupied one of the guitar spots in THE biggest Southern Rock band for quite some time now, a band who are finally coming to the end of their road. That said, it's doubtful he's slowing down any time soon, so pop a cold one or pour a shot of Jack if you're so inclined and please welcome founding member of the original Blackfoot and guitarist for Lynyrd Skynyrd, Mr Rickey Medlocke. Enjoy!
Amps & Axes - #218 - Tribute to Tom Wheeler
Hello Amps and Axes fans. This week the guys bring you a repeat of an interview they did back in October of 2016. They do this as a tribute to a man that was at the helm of THE most influential guitar magazine, at a time when guitar was King. A magazine that influenced all that came after it. The episode is preceded by many who have contacted us with their own personal tributes to the man, so please help us remember and pay respect to the past editor of Guitar Player Magazine and an author of books that became bibles of the guitar world, Mr, Tom Wheeler. RIP Tom and thanks for all you did.
Was a great podcast, and It will be missed.
I can remember discovering Amps and Axes right before the Joe Barden stories. Wow, I was hooked. Turned me on to some great gear and great players. Not sure what happened at the end that ended the show, But I've suspected that Jeff didn't like that the show wasn't turning a profit (podcasts generally don't unless you're in the top 5) and so would rather focus on his tiny amp business. There were some great guests, and some not so nice guests, but it was nice to have a show that wasn't so focused on gear.
I host a podcast on guitar as well, but out of respect I won't mention it hear--hopefully it'll come back, but I'm not holding my breath.
Where did you guys go?
I loved this podcast; great hosts, great guests, great content. It seemed they were going strong, then they just stopped.
Where did you guys go?
Good podcast but Mick should really lay off the internet.
