hello universal soldiers! i hope you're all living the american dream. i'm good. i played with skyrocket last night at this place called, the roost. it was good. sometimes it just takes us being together and making each other laugh to make it a good show. we're lucky like that. i'm starting a residency this coming tuesday 7/1 at strange brew in austin, tx. i'll be playing every tuesday in july and august while my friend, jeff plankenhorn, is on vacation. it's called, "johnny goudie and friends". i'll have one person playing a 30 minute set before me, then i'll join them for their last song. after that song, they'll leave the stage and i'll stay up and play my set. then i'll be joined by the last person for my last song and i'll leave the stage and that person will play their set. i'm trying to make it a seamless show which should be fun for the audience. my guests on tuesday will be joseph king and jeremy nail. here's the event page https://www.facebook.com/events/1470709166502528/my guest for episode 286 is the phenomenally talented guitar player, angus clark! angus is friend of mine i met through playing with song division, but you might know his from trans siberian orchestra, "rock of ages" on broadway, daredevil squadron or any of his instructional videos on youtube. needless to say, he's an accomplished player. i met up with angus when i was in new york a few weeks ago. he came to my hotel room in brooklyn and we talked about everything, growing up in new york city, finding david gilmore, bending strings in tune, touring with kitaro, the amount of production involved in a trans siberian orchestra tour and much, much more. i had a great time getting to know angus. i'm sure you will too. let's get down!ciao! -jg

Episode 216: Dave Prewitt

Tuesday Oct 29, 2013

Tuesday Oct 29, 2013

hello people! i hope you're all doing well. i've been playing a lot this week with skyrocket.we  played last night (monday) we don't normally play corporate parties during the week, but this week, we have two which is great. the one we played last night had a mechanical bull. it was an insurance company, so there were about 6 people who rode it during the six hour party. a mechanical bull really seems a lot easier to ride when you're watching people do it... much harder when you do it yourself. i've ridden one before. my aunt actually got married during the "urban cowboy" craze and had one at their wedding. i think me and my friends monopolized it. i was 11.my guest for episode 216 is videographer, dave prewitt. you can find dave's work by going to davetv.org. i've been friends with him since the early 90's when he had two extremely popular access tv music shows, "rawtime" and "capzeyez". i watched those shows every chance i had. i was on the shows a few times and always had a blast. anyway, dave did tons of interviews with locals bands, national touring bands and he was the last person to interview bill hicks. dave has always been involved with exposing people to new music and helping bands get "out there" in front of people. you can see a lot of his work if you go to davetv.org. i enjoyed hearing the stories of access and how he's transitioned to the internet age. i'm sure you will too. ciao! -jg

hello friends! how are you guys? i just woke up... it's obscenely early. i was too tired when i go home last night to do this. i got a few hours of sleep, i'm jacked up on coffee and i'm ready to write. i played with SKYROCKET! last night and we're playing the next two nights. i can't tell you how nice it is to work with people you love and enjoy being around. it's a good thing and i consider myself very lucky. i make fun of it a lot because it's also very silly, but it's a good time and i love my friends.
