Professor Gregg Hammond~ Musician, Mentor, Guitar Teacher, Philanthropist, Author. Born in DC Gregg's family moved away in the late 60's to escape the violence of the riots. The move landed him in the Florida Keys where he grew up and learned to live in the natural surroundings, worked teaching fishing, snorkeling, & exploring in the backcountry islands of the Keys. Hurricane's destroyed his guitar studio and then his home. With his dog and a guitar, he began a journey to find a larger purpose for his life. He traveled highways and wilderness mountains, searching for his truth. Returning to DC in 2002, Gregg experienced violence in the streets. His father and he were randomly attacked by a gang of kids in 04. Held at gunpoint by teens in 05, and nearly ambushed again from another gang in 06. These experiences compelled him to take action to make a difference. He founded GNG DC, and volunteers his time, wearing many hats within the charity to keep it going. He has witnessed miracles in the classroom. His VISION includes bringing the world together, all playing the same song at the same time, featuring many of the Guitars Not Guns students up on the stages with great musicians like Paul McCartney, U2, Ben Harper, and Sting to mention a few on the list.
Eddie Van Halen...Dutch born Eddie van Halen relocated with his brother Alex and family to the U.S. in 1962. The grew up in Pasedena, California and showed an early aptitude for musi (Alex as a drummer and Edward as a guitarist). While still at high school, he formed the band originally known as Mammoth but subsequently re-christened Van Halen with singer David Lee Roth and bassist Mike Anthony. The band became a popular local attraction through a combination of loud and energetic heavy metal and Roth’s very tight trousers! Due to the inability to attract a record deal, they began promoting own gigs; using every possible attention-grabbing trick like parachuting into stadiums to upstage the headlining band.
I had so much fun doing a show Eric Stollsteimer at Caveman Vintage Music that I had to do a show with Erik Bailey the resident Guitar Expert
We spent about an hour talking about old Guitars and what make them sound so good, how to fix /not fix electric guitars being a Guitar tech on tour, being a Guitar tech when things are good and when things go bad.
Being a CTE Electronics teacher in my other life I even found topics to share with students like signal flow, trouble-shooting, and pickups, topics I can share with my students
We talked about Guitars and their stories.
It was a very interesting and informative show and I want to say THANK YOU to Erik for spending some time in the back room of Caveman Music in Chinatown, in Los Angeles California
