RE: What??

By Guitar Bird - Nov 10 2019

I am very proud of my faith. Yet it irks me when a misguided Christian whines about being persecuted by “SJWs” or the media or whatever. Get over yourself, good sir or madam, and stop complaining about your faith being targeted. Reread the book of Matthew, then take your energy and do good works for others, welcome the stranger, and follow the teachings of Your Lord... THAT is exactly what us “SJWs” that you so vilify are doing. May God Bless Everyone, No Exceptions. Now the podcast? I really like it, and their choices of guests!

What??

No reviews? Ok, I’ll have to be the one then. I DIG it. Love the laid back vibe, love the openness of being a Christian, which seems to not only be withering away in an ever increasing, hate and evil filled world, but will eventually be illegal (in as far as admitting and acting upon it). Not illegal to be a white Christian man, yet, but the SJW’s are trying hard to make it so. This is not a religious podcast, but I love that you have the fortitude to speak on it with the great Michael Sweet, a wonderful, humble, sweet ;) man, and one heck of a musician who is doing, still, God’s work, after all these years. More people like both of you is what the world so desperately needs, now more than ever. God, family and guitars. The best things in life. Keep up the good work. Thanks for doing what you do. God bless

Zakk Wylde rose to international prominence when he joined Ozzy Osbourne's line up for 1988's No Rest For The Wicked.

We talk to Zakk whilst on the road with Black Label Society - the band he formed and has fronted since 1998. Zakk talks us through the massive riffs on the latest BLS album Grimmest Hits, the inspiration behind starting his own line of guitars and amps and what it's like to be back working with Ozzy for a farewell tour.

Greg Marra first appeared on The Guitar Speak Podcast in February 2017 (Episode 36), and he's been up to so much good stuff we had to have him back. Greg talks us through new Plenty Heavy material, moving to Sully Guitars, playing NAMM, working at Satriani's G4 camp and starting his own killer podcast.

Greg has become a great friend of the show and it was excellent to catch up.

Thanks for joining us!

Rank #13: Rick Kelly: Carmine Street Guitars - GSP #107

Podcast cover
Read more

Rick Kelly has been hand crafting guitars for over 50 years in his hometown of New York for artists including Lou Reed, Bob Dylan, Charlie Sexton, Kirk Douglas and Bill Frisell to name a few.

Rick's work - which includes the use of reclaimed timbers from historic NY locations - is the subject of a beautifully made feature film, Carmine Street Guitars, directed by Ron Mann.

The film includes a star studded line-up of guitarists, but is as much a tale of Rick and his apprentice Cindy Hulej's time honoured craft in an increasingly gentrified neighbourhood.
