Featured Guest is the section of my website where I interview musicians, artists, actors and many cool people I have crossed paths with. Tonight we had the opportunity to interview two very cool people, Sabine Stangenberg and Joey DeMartini. Hailing from Portland, Sabine and Joey formed the group Disenchanter in 2011 with Sabine on Vocals/Guitar, Joey on bass and later adding Jay Erbe on drums. Heavy rock and roll with doom riffage, Disenchanter has been described as ‘Ray Bradbury on Black Sabbath’. How cool is that? Tonight we discuss their history, music, love of sci fi artwork, films, recent news and more.

Featured Guest is where I interview actors, authors, artists, musicians and various types of really cool people I have crossed paths with over the years. Today we had the honor and the pleasure of having an interview with the one and only brilliant artist Karyn Crisis. Karyn and I discuss many interesting and in depth topics from her life: music, painting, her spiritual work and interests, history, upcoming projects and more. Karyn is a true pioneer front woman in metal and an incredible artist in so many, many ways. I was really psyched to interview her and truly appreciate her taking the time to share her thoughts and experiences.

Featured Guest is the area of my website where I interview various cool people I have crossed paths with over the years from artists to musician, actors, authors and more. Tonight I had a great talk with my old friend Gail Ice, who is an aspiring film maker . Gail and I spoke a great deal about films, history, his ideas and a little about music and life. It’s always great to catch up with a friend and talk about old times and interesting subjects, Gail and I go way back. From his days decades ago as a full on DIY punk rocker where his sincerity, genuine enthusiasm and scene credibility run deeper than many, Gail never has to even mention it to be respected or appreciated.  Mr.Ice hung up his flying V for a camera with a vision to become an indie film maker but don’t be surprised if he returns to music one day too. From his recent meeting of George Romero to our mutual Ultraman appreciation, Gail and I rapped about many topics in this great interview. – G

Featured Guest is where I interview cool people I have crossed paths with from artists, musicians, actors and more. Guitar supermaster Tim Murray sat down with us to discuss some of his favorite classic rock band shows. It was really interesting to see his collection of tickets of concerts from the 1960’s onward (Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Allman Brothers, etc.) and listen to his memories of favorite shows. Tim is my dear old friend and has rocked guitar in my band at live shows and studio sessions. He is the owner of The Guitar Workshop in Charlotte, North Carolina. If you are looking for a guitar instructor look no further, Tim and company are the best you could ask for.  Tim just lives for music, and never ceases to amaze me with his playing and ethereal understanding of the craft. The Way Back machine begins as he took us back to March 3, 1968 with none other than the late, great James Marshall Hendrix.

Featured Guest is the section of my website where I interview various individuals I have crossed paths with over the years. Artists, musicians, actors or you name it, it's always awesome to speak with so many interesting people about topics all over the board. This time around we had none other than the notorious Jim Forrester. Jim is known for laying down the bass with the groups Foghound and Serpents of Secrecy, and livin' large in the underground music world. Today we catch up on his music and life news, but also talk about many cool things. Right on.  - G

Today we are joined by my friend of many years, the mighty Shakti Subramanian. His journey from a hard working NYC Rock and Roll photographer to Hindu Satguru is a unique and inspiring tale. One of the best friends I have ever had the privilege to have in my life, Shakti is a wise good friend to many. I have always considered him to be the one true expert on his faith Hinduism that I know personally. Despite being a heavy spiritual cat, he’s not above having a good laugh or discussing the virtues of rock bands, actions movies or 70’s culture. Wise is a term often tossed around when someone says a simple philosophical line, but Shakti is someone who I feel embodies wisdom. I know he touches the lives of many with his teaching, spiritual work and friendship in a positive way. Truly a man who makes a difference in the jungle of the world. Today we sat down and discussed everything from his days as a rock photographer in NYC to his thoughts on Hinduism, Buddhism and more.
