Episode 35: Will Sexton

happy 2012! wow! it sounds so apocalypse-y. do you believe that the mayans could predict the end of the world? i don't. these are people that sacrificed their own people to their gods. they thought the sun was a happy dude. so, as far as their apocalyptic visions for 2012, they mean nothing to me. that's not to say that when i heard the news about an earthquake on new years day, i didn't freak the fuck out. so, in closing, i don't believe the mayans. however, if they're right, hijo de la chingada!!!!

my guest for episode 35 is my dear friend of 27 years, will sexton. will is a brilliant singer/songwriter, an amazing and extremely surreal guitar player and one of my favorite bass players in the world. will grew up around musicians like stevie ray vaughan, the fabulous thunderbirds, countless blues legends. playing the clubs as a little kid, touring at 14, major-label record deal at 15, finding his true voice as a songwriter at 20, fatherhood, staff songwriter, a stroke, recovery. through all of this, will has written a wealth of songs that tell profound stories and feature rich and often sad characters. he has inspired me, made me laugh and always made me proud to be his friend since i was 16 years old. i hope you enjoy our conversation. i did.

ciao! -jg
