Episode #125: Jimmy Gnecco (OURS)
Our guest this Episode is Jimmy Gnecco!! Jimmy is Is a mythical creature, A rock God , A humble servant, An interesting artist, And a family man, He’s been traversing these strange waters of music industry round abouts since the 90’s when he walked along side Jeff Buckley’s rise in the industry.
He was there (spiritually) when Jeff disappeared in the Mississippi and in some kind of way locked in an ethereal brotherhood that looms on still now. Jimmy was tapped to be in Velvet Revolver and Stone Temple Pilots, but had too many of his own ideas to be an easy fit. They he could have been, had his soul allowed him more puppet like abilities . Some of us make it hard on ourselves. Jimmy’s one of those, but that’s what makes him great! And that’s also what makes this episode a real winner. Our 2nd longest ever! And never felt like that. Enjoy!!!
Great work guys, keep it up!
Such wonderful insightful natural feeling podcast. A combination of living life, art and music with a conversational tone that makes the time go by fast.
Self aggrandizing with no end
But enough about you (guest), let’s make it about me (Host)
Has its faults…
I appreciate this podcast for its vast lineup of unique guests and when the conversations are good, they’re pretty incredible. The guests often seem comfortable in Joseph’s company (which is great) and that allows them to dig a little bit deeper into topics of discussion. This podcast certainly has its faults though, it has kind of painted Joseph Arthur in a whole new light for me. Joseph has a true knack for interrupting his guests while talking over them. Joe’s constant belittling of Ehud throughout the episodes grows a bit tiring also. He sometimes seems much more interested in talking about himself than he does hearing what his guests have to say and that can be a bit of a turn off. However, guests such as Barrett Martin and Alejandro Escovedo tend to make the listening aspect so much better.
