Hear what inspires them to get out of bed each morning and practice the craft that they love. My guests include people that I truly respect from many different backgrounds.

Xander Demos is an amazing metal guitar player currently based out of Pittsburgh, PA. He and I have a lot in common. I found out that we were born in the same year, and shared many similar influences. Guitarists like Steve Vai, Jason Becker, Neil Schon, and John Sykes are just a few of the players that really grabbed us in our formative years. Xander told me about his album "Guitarcadia". He allowed me to include two songs from there with this episode, but I encourage you to find it and buy a copy for yourself. He has two cool covers on it from the 80s. Track it down to see what they are! We also share some dislikes, and took a side trip discussing the dark days of grunge. Many people say it came along at a time when rock needed a change, but not us! Xander and I had a great time with this interview, and I hope to have him on again. Learn more at Enjoy!
