Meeting with Mattias "IA" Eklundh was an experience. The guitar player for the swedish power-trio Freak Kitchen is very funny and manages to be also very serious in his answers at the same time.
I have to admit I discovered very recently the music from Freak Kitchen (shame on me, I know!) and I was more than anxious to discuss with such a guitar player.

They will be in France in 2010 (February 2nd at La Maroquinerie in Paris) so don't miss them if they come near you.

Dave Weiner interview (@daveweiner)

As a follow-up to this episode (where you can listen to a Steve Vai interview) I did a Skype interview with his guitar player for the last 10 years, Dave Weiner.

The 35 minutes plus conversation was recorded through Skype so please excuse the couple of drop-outs you will hear here and there.

Thanks a ton to Dave who took the time to answer all my questions.

Watch out on his website for his up-coming solo album very soon...

Steve Vai interview (@stevevai) - Where The Wild Things Are

I almost lost sleep for a week when I learned I was about to interview Steve Vai! I am that big of a fan. I had a blast talking to him. He was extremely nice on the phone and answered all my questions.

Subjects discussed in the Steve Vai interview

Steve talks about his latest live CD/DVD Where The Wild Things Are
About his music
His band
His guitars
And plenty of other stuff

The live CD/DVD Where the Wild Things Are is a great testimony to how good Steve can be when he performs live.
