When I first started this series of interviews, Andrew Rossiter from Org Music asked me if I would like to interview Chuck Dukowski. My response was swift and to the point – “It would be an honor.” Little did I know that it would be the start of something.
This week, I am proud to present to you my “sit down” with the incredibly talented and versatile Trevor Church. Metalheads will know full well the prolific talents of Trevor Church. His bands Beastmaker and Haunt have been making serious waves across the indie Metal scene for several years now.
When I was growing up, in my mind, there was no bigger or greater band than KISS. While the make-up era was what initially drew me in, I eventually came to love the non-makeup era equally. For the majority of those years (1984-1996), Bruce Kulick was the band’s lead guitarist, and through that music, he became one of my all-time favorites.
How much do you really know about the guitar? Better yet, who are the best guitar players in the world today? How about the last thirty years? If your list doesn’t include one Tommy Emmanuel, then you simply haven’t been paying attention.
Frank Turner’s music has long been near and dear to my heart. We all have bands and artists that are constants for us. We may not always listen to them on a weekly basis (or perhaps we do), but just knowing they’re there is comforting. Frank’s music has been with me over the long haul, and has steadied the ship for me in times of trouble, and rode happily beside me for the good times as well.
Power-pop auteur, Ken Stringfellow’s impact on indie music over the last 30 years is evocatively everlasting.
