    Episode 6: Rita Haney, Tony Mosley, Frank Iero

    in Music

    Rita Haney - @dimebagzhag on Instagram - was Dimebag Darrell’s longtime girlfriend, and she’s spent the last few years putting together DimeVision 2: Roll With It Or Get Rolled Over, a new DVD of crazy stuff Dime got up to behind the scenes. It comes out on November 24. I met Rita at the Seymour Duncan NAMM party earlier this year, and we did this interview a few weeks ago, hence the Halloween talk. 
    Tony M from Prince’s New Power Generation. NPG are playing at Bluesfest in Byron Bay, Australia over the Easter weekend. Tony’s story is really interesting - in the interview he talks about how he came to be in Prince’s band, and a whole bunch of other stuff. 
    Last year Frank Iero was in town for a few shows, and we had a great chat for Australian Guitar magazine. We were just hanging around at his hotel nerding out about guitar. Frank’s a really sweet guy and this interview was a lot of fun. Visit patreon.com/iheartguitar if you'd like to kick in a few bucks and get access to subscriber-only content!

    Then, Sultans of String frontman Chris McKhool talks about his band's eclectic new holiday release, Christmas Caravan. We chat about how guest artists like Nikki Yanofsky, Alex Cuba, Crystal Shawanda, and Richard Bona were tapped for the collection, interpreting Christmas classics in various world music styles, and more.
    Plus, Andrew and Mike discuss their favourite contemporary Christmas releases, which may or may not include a rant on Mariah Carey's classic "All I Want for Christmas Is You."

    Bob Boo Bernstein. Pedal steel guitarist and proud member of LA Latino music

    in Music

    Bob Bernstein is an unlikely member of the Los Angeles Latino fusion music community.  He has been playing music since he was 10 years old and fell so much in love with the sound of a pedal steel guitar that he saved up his allowance and bought one while he was in high school;  the rest is history.  That history includes winning an Oscar for Best Original Score on Brokeback Mountain, working with Hans Zimmer on the Man of Steel, live and recorded performances with Freddy Fender, Tanya Tucker, Jerry Lee Lewis, Emmylou Harris, Mark Chesnutt, Dwight Yoakum, Michelle Shocked, Curt Kirkwood from the Meat Puppets, Erasure, Gatemouth Brown, and Hank Thompson. But he is particularly proud of his Latino music. For the last 5 years  he has  toured and recorded with Mexican superstar Joan Sebastian and has contributed pedal steel chords to recordings by other popular Latin artists including Juanes, Vicente Fernandez, Jenni Rivera, Lucero,  La Santa Cecilia, Ulli and the Mexicans. He says that his work with Latino artists makes him especially happy because he feels he has helped break down musical borders and introduce the pedal steel to a whole new audience.
