Music icons, million sellers & so much more…
Welcome to another jam-packed edition of Guitar Interactive Magazine. Our cover interview features an all-time icon and Grammy-winning giant of jazz, George Benson. During a six-decade career marked by awards, acclaim and Billboard-topping output, the Pittsburgh, Hill District-born veteran has earned his place in both the history books and the biggest venues around the world. Gi talks with the music icon about his latest album 'Weekend In London,' his long-time love affair with the guitar and much more.
Also in the edition, Travis frontman Fran Healy talks exclusively to Gi about his unique approach to songwriting. John Rzeznik chats about the Goo Goo Dolls' very first Christmas album 'It's Christmas All Over.' Plus, Zach Myers speaks on teaming up with his bandmate Brent Smith (Shinedown), as the duo showcase a different yet just as intriguing musical side in the form of two brand new project: Smith & Myers.
This issue's Tech Session focuses on one of the biggest Los Angeles bands to emerge from the '80s. With their excessive Rock n' Roll lifestyle depicted in a recent movie, Jamie Humphries felt it was about time Gi looked at the riff genius of Mick Mars and Motley Crue.
As usual, with every issue, we have a whole host of the latest and best gear reviews from around the world of guitar, with our team of world-class gear reviewers offering their unique insight, expertise, and personality which as always, I hope you will enjoy. However, if that's not enough, don't forget all of our exclusive lessons from Nick Jennison, Sam Bell & Giorgio Serci.
