Amps & Axes - #113 - John Platania

Hello AaA Fans. Once more we welcome you to another installment of your Amps and Axes Podcast. In this episode the guys tip their hat to yet another music Icon departing this rock. Then an update on the catastrophe at the Maryland guitar manufacturer's facility and a discussion of the Guitar Player "12 Most Influential Guitarists" article. (Yes, please discuss amongst  yourselves) Then on to the guest of the week: A guitarist who we're pretty sure everyone that has listened to current rock / pop music over the last four decades or more has heard his work. And a special timely note: His boss was just Knighted two days ago, February 4th, 2016. Please welcome guitarist for Van Morrison, Mr John Platania. Enjoy!
