A friend of mine has recently launched a new quarterly e-mag called Gearphoira that covers all things guitar gear - pedals, amps, vintage bodies... everything. It is evolved from the website formerly known as What's That Dude Play?, which I occasionally wrote for during my interminable Leaner hiatus.
Gearphoria released its second edition last month and it features a fairly lengthy interview (and small write up) I did with Josh Klinghoffer, the most recent guitarist for the Red Hot Chili Peppers. His latest effort is a side project called Dot Hacker, which is definitely worth checking out. Josh is a great guy, a friend of many of my friends, and he was very generous to lend me his time.
Check out the interview in the latest edition of Gearphoria.
I have one other piece in this edition as well, a review of a film called Apocalypse: A Bill Callahan Tour Film. I was not really familiar with Bill prior to seeing this film, but he is quite an interesting musician and the film is nothing short of captivating. (Read the review here.) It's also fun because Nevada City native Neal Morgan shows up frequently in the film since he toured with Bill as the band's drummer. What's up, Neal?
Apocalypse won't be easy to find as it is without a distributor and shows up only at film festivals for the time being. But it's a solid watch and highly recommended. Here's a trailer:
