And now for something completely different..

There’s something special and different about this podcast. I’ve only listened to the Bottle Rock series so far. Jimmy is a genuine, relatable host and interviewer. That he shares a lot of the touring and musical hard knocks experiences with the artists he’s interviewing brings a great perspective. That he talks guitars and amps is great, but the touring road stories are fascinating. “Are you making any money?” “Traveling by car, van or bus?” “What do you do on your off days?” I just like it. I always make a point of listening to each of the artists he’s interviewed - mostly because he so positive and enthusiastic about each act! And it should be noted I’ve bought some of the music because of what I heard.

It’s a hard world out there people. The road is tough, tough, tough. Thanks for sharing the spotlight with some fine guitar players who aren’t rolling in dough and flying from gig-to-gig. They’ve earned our respect and the least a lot of us could do is give this podcast a listen and check out the artists.

Thanks to Vintage Guitar for hosting. We all love the magazine already....but thanks for doing it.
