Hey Pete Thorn titled his solo album Guitar Nerd so I guess it gives me the right call him that right? If you are a gear addicts (as we all are at one level) you must have viewed one of the numerous videos Pete has on his YouTube channel. But Pete is a pro guitar player first and foremost, he played with many big names such as Melissa Etheridge, Chris Cornell to name only those two.
I caught him when he was in Paris on tour with a very famous singer in France, Mylène Farmer who fills stadiums when she tours. I had a ton of fun talking to him as you can tell from the pic below.
