My guest for this episode is the legendary Derek Smalls of Spinal Tap. Derek is about to release his new solo album, Smalls Change (Meditations On Aging) on April 13 and it's packed full of great guests like Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Steve Lukather, Phil X and many more. I had the rare opportunity to speak with Derek himself about the album, his favourite basses, and what he wishes was different about the documentary This Is Spinal Tap.

Also in this episode I share my thoughts about Gibson's current woes. Hit this link to read the short version.
