Welcome to the Andertons Music Podcast! Made by musicians, for musicians featuring killer jams, gear talk and exclusive interviews with some of the best in the industry!
Captain Meets Phil Palmer (Eric Clapton, Dire Straits, Frank Zappa & More!)
1:36:07It's probably easier to list off who Phil Palmer hasn't played with as a legendary session guitarist. He rivals Tom Jones for name dropping: Eric Clapton, David Bowie, Frank Zappa, Paul McCartney and so many more. Phil is a simply outstanding musician with great stories to tell. We got all the tales of working with global superstars, as well as a lick of lovely playing, too, in one of our deepest dives into the mind of a veteran guitarist.
The Captain Meets Kenny Wayne Shepherd
46:26Kenny Wayne Shepherd is a player who channels the power of SRV through his fingertips. The Louisiana-born musician is a blues mainstay who has released massive albums since the mid-1990s. A great guitarist, brilliant character and serious music gear enthusiast. Kenny took us back through his guitar history, meeting Stevie Ray Vaughan and learning to both sing and play at the same time. We also got to check out his brilliant signature Strat.
The Captain Meets Chris Buck
22:19YouTuber, musician and supreme guitarist, Chris Buck is a close Andertons friend who now fronts alt-rock outfit Cardinal Black. We've heard his playing and seen his fingers move with grace across the fretboard in his videos, but now he's taking that same musicianship to the stage in an extremely promising band. We got all the updates on his new rig, guitars, pedals and a few tips & tricks on how to get his special rhythm tone.
The Captain Meets Tracii Guns
47:31Ever wondered where the “Guns” in Guns N' Roses comes from? Tracii Guns is one of the prominent members of the LA glam rock scene in the '80 and a founder of the aforementioned globally successful band. He built up the majority of his back catalogue with the reformation of previous group L.A. Guns as lead guitarist. We dived into the heyday of the Sunset Strip scene, as well as chatted about his signature Kramer guitar. Heads up, this one contains explicit language.
The Captain Meets Paul Reed Smith
50:30Paul Reed Smith should by now be a familiar name with Andertons viewers and listeners. Paul is a great friend of ours and his namesake company make some of the best ever guitars we've played – and subsequently bought. This interview was part of our PRS social takeover, and we cover some fundamental questions like what got us into music, our most starstruck interviews and our desert island music gear!
The Captain Meets Troy Van Leeuwen (Queens Of The Stone Age)
40:28Queens Of The Stone Age's long-time guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen might be one of the coolest, most intriguing guests we've hosted. He's a rock icon in his own right, but often plays a support role behind frontman Josh Homme, all the while while tying the Californian band's sound together in a dark, brooding package. He's a lover of Fender guitars and music gear – we got into the depths of what makes his sound so unique.
The Captain Meets Tash Sultana
23:38Platinum-selling one-person-band Tash Sultana is an extraordinary talent we simply had to get on for an episode of “The Captain Meets”. Tash has risen through grassroots music, beginning with a career in busking and getting her music online on Bandcamp. In this time she became a master at looping tracks and building songs from the ground up in real time. We dug into Tash's musical influences, the Terra Firma album and signature Fender Strat. Heads up: this episode features some explicit language.
Jack Duxbury Meets Nile Rodgers
39:13What a legend. Whatever your interest in music or your background, Nile Rodgers is a household name to us all. To some, he's the man behind Chic and Sister Sledge. To others, the major collaborator with David Bowie, Madonna, Diana Ross and Lady Gaga. To more than a few, he's the guitarist on Daft Punk's earworm “Get Lucky”. Jack had the pleasure of hosting Nile Rodgers on this one.
The Captain Meets Carlos Santana
52:48Carlos Santana needs no introduction - he is without doubt the most commercially successful and best known South American guitarist on the planet. You've heard his hits on the radio. You've heard his features. Now we've got him on the airwaves to talk about guitars and new music.
The Captain Meets Cory Wong
1:18:55One of the hottest properties in funk and R&B, Cory Wong is a Grammy-nominated musician with a back catalogue of music and collabs anyone would dream of having. The 36-year-old is 10 solo studio albums deep and is a regular touring player with Vulfpeck. He's also worked on projects with Joe Satriani, Dirty Loops and Kimbra - just to name a few. We got an insight into Cory's awesome playing style, the gear he uses and his success with Vulfpeck.
