The epic conclusion to the first season of the Records & Riffs podcast is a self-indulgent and entirely enthusiastic 90-minute examination into some of the best mainstream guitarists in music history. What makes/made them great, who are the underrated would-be gods, who are the best guys going under 40, etc. Jimi, Jimmy, Stevie, Eddie, Angus, Duane, Mayer, Gilmour, Berry, Beck, Rhoads, Neil and more.
This episode is for the gearheads and historians alike. Plus: What happened to the guitar solo? Is it gone for good? Is that a good thing. Yahoo Sports' Jay Busbee -- who is as knowledgeable and enthusiastic on this topic as anyone -- joins me for a triple album-length gabfest on why we'll always love the power of the guitar.
