Posted on Monday, February 16th, 2009 in Interviews – Comments: (1)Back in 2004 when I was producing a radio show from Brooklyn College, I was fortunate enough to book a few good bands to come to the studio, talk, and do a song or two.

Posted on Tuesday, February 17th, 2009 in non-guitar-dosage – Comments: (0)Whether you’re writing a novel or writing a piece of music, you are faced with creative challenges throughout the process.

If you’re looking to foray into the world of session and live work, this one is a must.You’ll read a lot of theories about what to do in studio or how to do things live but there’s nothing like hearing it from someone who’s done it, and doing it.
