Subjects discussed in the 25min interview
- A short improvisation to start the interview
- His first guitar

You can't get simpler (and probably much better) than that: an authentic 1960 Les Paul Standard sunburst straight in a 1969 Superlead Marshall.
Until the next interview, keep on playing your guitar... even if it's not an authentic Les Paul burst!
