Guitar Aficionado - May/June 2014 - Jerry Garcia's Guitars
In the May/June 2014 issue of Guitar Aficionado, we recognize Jerry Garcia's achievement in pushing modern electric guitar technology and innovation forward. Constantly seeking the ultimate stage guitar, the Grateful Dead founder revolutionized the custom guitar industry in his tireless pursuit of excellence.
We also take a look at the life and times of the late Gram Parsons. Despite his tumultuous and troubled lifestyle, the folk-rocker delivered transcendent music with the Byrds, the Flying Burrito Brothers, and his own band, the Fallen Angels.
Further on, we learn how well-known Las Vegas chef, Grant MacPherson, has combined his passion for music and food throughout his career.
Later, we converse with Tonino Baliardo, the lead guitarist of international phenomenon, the Gipsy Kings, about the long-running rumba catalana group.
Finally, meet Stan Jay. Since 1971, Jay has bought, sold, and restored many of the world's finest vintage stringed instruments from his celebrated store in Staten Island, Mandolin Bros.
Plus, timepieces for air, sea, and space, barrel-aged gin, a look at the 2014 Ferrari FF and much more!
