What can you say about Greg Koch? One of the most unbelievable guitarists you’ll ever hear, amazing clinician and one of the funniest men alive! Yet people outside the guitar planet probably don’t know his name. In a perfect world, Greg would be a star. Whether he’s pummeling the listener with a ferocious run of inventive and twisted licks or having them doubled over in laughter… he IS a star in our camp! We were lucky enough to be able to chat with him back and forth for a few days earlier this year and get this interview. Enjoy & FEAST!
You’ve got a new album out called, “Plays Well With Others” featuring some killer guests. What can you tell us about that?
