TMP 124 Phil DeGruy's 17-String Theory

The guitar wizard, satirist, and provocateur’s record titles like “Innuendo Out the Other” and “Hello Dali” give you an idea of his sense of humor. Collaborations like “Just Duet” with heavyweights Larry Coryell, Mike Stern, and Charlie Hunter demonstrate his place in the guitar virtuoso community. Phil traces his journey from studying with master teacher Hank Mackie to creating a custom guitar/harp inspired by 7-string guru Lenny Breau. Phil has always followed his own path in music. After his sojourn with the Troubled Men, let’s hope he can find his way back. Topics include a sore winner, a harmonica player, the new Vegas stadium, “Casino,” the VagiPlug, in-person classes, a positive test, LSU culture, Squeaky Fromme revisited, a scary trip to Applebee’s, subversive stickers, David Vitter bed shopping, a second act, Filiberto’s World of Strings, a golden age, Steve Masakowski, Emily Remler, the Guitar Ensemble, fanned frets, playing for Chet Atkins, a murder allegation, music magazines, Steve Vai, Les White, Steely Dan, a prescient title, a bunny robbery, a Gong Show, a birthday surprise, a custom design, and much more.
