my guest for episode 293 is the amazingly talented guitar player and incredible hang, zak loy! zak is currently the guitar player in ed kowalczyk's touring band and alpha rev. i first met him in like 1999 when he was co-leader of the teen-pop-rock band, dames violet with his brother beaux. he was just 15 and he was talented, humble, fearless, sweet and incredibly ambitious. 15 years later he's only more of the same. we have a lengthy and entertaining conversation that goes from having guitars made for him, managers, record companies and huge gigs as a teenager, his love and respect for the scene he came up in, playing with alpha rev, dames violet, mother's anthem and ed kowalczyk, touring the world with kowalczyk, opening for and meeting the rolling stones and much, much more. this guy is a class act. i had a great time catching up with him. i'm sure you will too. let's get down!
ciao! -jg
