Danny Roy, cousin, musician and luthier is back! We start this one mid-conversation with a talk about the Arnold workouts (22:00). Then we dive headlong into a chat about guitars and gear (4:05): What happens when something is priced incorrectly in retail; what the difference is between an Epiphone and Gibson and Squires; Gene’s Ax Bass and how spitting blood makes playing difficult. Danny now runs his own guitar shop called Royal Tone Guitar and Services (19:12). We discuss the ins and outs of the business and he shares some stories behind the bench.
Danny offers his views on studios and home studios (31:29). We talk Chris Jericho’s Kuarantine and bedtime recording sessions during the pandemic.
Tracks we hear this week include:
Untitled – Thunderfunk (from their cassette tape release) (17:48)
No, No, No – Kuarantine (Chris Jericho’s Kiss cover band) (35:12)
Slapshot Boogie – Thunderfunk (from their unreleased second album) (45:57)
