Craig, thanks for this wonderful peek inside the life of Guy, who’s my favorite bass player. As a 75-year-old, sixty-year-old bass hacker, I’m staggered by Guy’s diversity, not to mention his playing. I met him briefly in ‘94 on a Floyd tour, and now I know what a terrific guy he is.
Great interview. Thanks.

Great guests, great interviews!

Recently discovered and fell in love with this podcast. The guest list is spectacular, a who’s who of guitarists’ guitar players. Keep up the great work, Craig!

Great podcast!

I've listened to the Audley Freed, Frank Sardonis and Ty Tabor episodes so far. All were excellent! I am very familiar with Audley and Ty but had not heard of Frank. I've enjoyed his episode the most so far. Mature beyond his years and a great variety of musical tastes. Craig does a great job asking questions not just about guitars and music, but life in general. Thanks for what you do!
