Episode 053 - Jesse Gress


I recently had the opportunity to speak with musician Jesse Gress. I have been aware of him for many years through his work with Todd Rundgren. I would go to see them perform whenever they came through town, and Todd would always introduce him as a "local guy". Little did I know how local he was to me. We were actually born in the same hospital, and that was just the start. He shared so many great memories that he had of his early days here in Bethlehem, PA. He has a fantastic memory for names and dates, and it was a lot of fun for me to hear his stories. I also learned about his extensive work in transcribing music and his contribution to many of the guitar books that I bought in the 80's. Please visit Jesse at his website http://www.jessegress.com/ to learn more about him and check out all of the books that he has for sale there. Enjoy the interview!
