Recently I was interviewed by Craig Garber for his very popular podcast and show "Everyone Loves Guitar." One of Craig's gifts as a host is in creating a safe space and then asking his guests for answers to really real questions. It is definitely like his website says: 'NOT your typical musician interviews.'
The interview in full is 1 hour and 37 minutes long - about the length of a movie! While I'd never assume anyone would want to watch me talk for that long (except maybe my mom), I did want to share places you can zoom to in the interview with time stamps for some never-before-heard stories...
And, please take a moment to check out the Everyone Loves Guitar podcast, with close to 800 Interviews at his website.
