Jefferson Starship guitarist Jude Gold jams with some of the greatest guitar players on the planet on a regular basis. We wanted to find out if he had any guitar heroes he hadn’t jammed with yet. We asked: If you could pick any guitar player to jam with, who would it be and why?
“It’s funny, I have gotten to jam with a lot of my heroes on my podcast, which is called No Guitar Is Safe, but of course there are plenty that I would dream of jamming with that I have never met.
“One fantasy would be to play Baba O’Riley with Pete Townshend and the Who in front of a huge outdoor crowd in England somewhere. So much power in those three simple chords, in the vocal parts, and in the trippy jam at the end.”
Jude Gold plays guitar in Jefferson Starship. As well, he’s part of the faculty at Musicians Institute and he’s been on the editorial staff of Guitar Player Magazine since 2001.
For anyone interested in guitar, I highly recommend his No Guitar is Safe podcast. It’s a combo of great guitar talk and great guitar playing. Each episode includes Jude jamming with his guest and passing along guitar tips. His guest roster reads like a who’s who of the guitar world.
