Guitar Aficionado - November/December 2014 - Joe Perry

The November/December 2014 of Guitar Aficionado features Joe Perry. The Aerosmith guitarist lifts the curtain on the group's turbulent history in Rocks - My Life In and Out of Aerosmith, his long-awaited autobiography. Read how Perry  got back his beloved lost Les Paul in an excerpt from Rocks.

Next, read how Johnny A., the hit-making guitarist performed, engineered, and mixed his latest album, Driven, on his own, with a stunning collection of axes.

Further on, we focus on Taylor Guitars. Now celebrating its 40th anniversary, the guitar company looks back at the struggles, triumphs, and enduring vision that have made it a great American success story.

Then, we remember Johnny Winter, a master of the blues and Firebird firebrand.

Finally, Guitar Aficionado highlights Jay Somers. Whether making wine or music, the proprietor of J. Christopher Wines prefers the traditional approach. Considering that one of Somers' first favorite songs was Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Heard It Through the Grapevine," some might say that it was actually destiny that led him to become one of the region's most talented winemakers.
