S03 Ep04 (Part1 of 2)- Being happy and proud of what I do with John McLaughlin Special Guests: John McLaughlin: McLaughlin started his career off as a 19 year old trailblazing guitar master, blowing away audiences just as the British blues was exploding on the scene. Bands like Cream and the Yardbirds were just starting to take shape, and guitarists like Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, and Jimi Hendrix were just starting out and hoping to cut their teeth. My next guest had a different calling, going on a different tangent and taking his sound away from the blues-rock world of guitar hooks and classic rock solos and instead schooling himself on some of the most beautiful but also technically challenging music styles known to music. He delved into playing styles like: flamenco guitar with Al Di Meola and Paco de Lucia; world music with people like Carlos Santana and Trilok Gurtu, and straight ahead jazz with too many jazz legends to mention. John McLaughlin was a major player in helping take jazz on one of most extreme and fun rides ever with the sub-genre 'jazz fusion." He is so respected that Miles Davis immortalized him in two songs, one of them on his landmark album, Bitches Brew, the honorary titled "John McLaughlin." Currently, McLaughlin and his band, The 4th Dimension have a brand new album out called “Now Here This” - an album about which McLaughlin has been quoted as saying “It’s the best thing I ever did, from the beginning until today.” In this podcast John McLaughlin and I talk about about the atmosphere in the studio while recording the songs: "Echoes From Then," "Take It or Leave It," "Guitar Love," and "Not Here Not There." You can hear the excitement in John McLaughlin’s voice when talking about this new album and the band he has put together.

But besides that, look into the music they've done. Give them a listen. These guys are pioneers in the field and have pushed the frontiers of music beyond conception. While we can't cover every guitarist that should be mentioned, which often leads to objections and bitterness from fans, take note of the ones listed here, and wait for the rest to be mentioned in a later episode. Jim Hall. Innovative and constantly pushing the boundaries, he takes a unique approach to his music and believes music is a ways to peace. Pat Metheney Innovative primarily in sound and always challenging himself Metheny has evolved into new forms and a passionate fan-base. I recommend starting off with his album "We Live Here." Charlie Christian One of the first jazz guitarists to use an electric guitar, he influenced many others. Phenomenal skills, he apparently could match Django Reinhardt note for note. Tal Farlow Nicknamed "The Octopus" for his incredibly large hands and clean playing style. He only started playing guitar at age 21, but soon was playing guitar professionally. Known for only playing publicly very rarely. George Benson Said to be the best guitar players Joey DeFancesco played with. Benson was a child prodigy, and can play a multitude of styles. He posesses impeccable technique, and can mimic his heroes perfectly at will. Allan Holdsworth A jazz guitarist of a different vein, this jazz fusion guitarist is known to have influenced players like: Eddie Van Halen, Joe Satriani, and even Frank Zappa. Like John McLaughlin, Holdsworth played with drumming legend Tony Williams. Django Reinhardt Django Reinhardt deserves all the prestige placed on him. After he injured his hand in a fire, he developed a new way of playing to accommodate losing the use of his last two fingers.

S03 Ep03 (Part1 of 2)- Having some lunch with David J Interview Date: September 12, 2012 @5pm EDT Halloween Special Guests: (Audio) David J (of Bauhaus and Love and Rockets): is an indie legend and a Goth Rock icon. David John Haskins (aka David J) was a key member in the band Bauhaus, as well as the band Love and Rockets, and now is forging a solid solo career. He is someone I can easily say is a person who formed the soundtrack of my high school years with classic songs like?: "No New Tale to Tell,:" "Ball of Confusion," "Ziggy Stardust," "So Alive," and "Bela Lugosi's Dead.” At that time I knew him as the sunglass and suit wearing bass player who had a fantastic Dub quality; as the years have gone on, my respect for him and his musical legacy has only grown. In this podcast we talk about David J`s new album "Not Long for this World," using Kickstarter, the song "Because You're Gone," “Hank Williams to the Angel of Death," and what it takes to do a great cover song, and much more. http://www.davidjonline.com Halloween Special Guests: (Written) Zia McCabe of the Dandy Warhols: is the keyboard player, percussionist, song writer and bass guitarist, for the Dandy Warhols. Zia McCabe of the Dandy Warhols Interview - 'This Interview Kills Fascists' (Part 1 of 2) GTV - I kind of see the Dandy Warhols as the vanguard of the MTV video generation. How important are videos today and do you see a new future for the music video? Zia McCabe - One of the first places people go to check out a band they’ve never heard is Youtube. If you don’t have songs on there with actual videos then the viewer/listener is going to get a live version filmed on someone’s phone with the speaker distorting or a still shot of the album cover or something that a fan has put up to get the song onto Youtube. While these versions are fine for the hardcore fan. A video that gives you proper visual stimulation while the song plays goes a lot further. So yes, I believe videos can be important, though I don’t see the big budget ones being as necessary. Oh but I do love that M.I.A. dessert one with the cars on their sides. Dang, that thing was worth every penny! GTV - In my discussion with Anton Newcombe, we got on the topic of bands getting discovered (half way through the interview). He said that being discovered and promoted by a major label as the only route to success is a farce, and he stated that no one needs to get permission to be successful. After I saw the movie "Dig!" it seems to be the direction you took (signed to a major label and well promoted.) Do you think a band can "make it" outside of the regular channels today? If so, what would a band need to do to be successful outside of the regular channels? Zia McCabe - I don’t know if being signed to a major label can even be considered the “regular channels” these days. Now it’s all about the niche. The Dandy’s have done it all. The major label (just before they, for the most part, crumbled), then we made up our own label (kinda) and self released an album and now we are on an indie. It was a helluva good time having all that money spent on us but ultimately a drag having those fools up in our business threatening our artistic integrity left and right. And well, we sucked at having our own label and hardly anyone even knew we released an album on Beat The World (different story in Australia because we did sign with a label to release it, thank god). Now, we’ve settled in the middle, working with great indies in the different territories, we have press coverage again and someone looking after the bits that we have proven to ourselves have no business looking after. This has become a DIY world though and you can “make it” via a myriad of different options. A la cart! GTV - I’ve seen some interviews with you where you talk about some of the ways you have been able to find a happy medium with being in a rock band and also being a mother.
