Saturday, May 1st we are kicking off a 'Guitar Gods Weekend'. We are shining a spotlight on the greatest artists to ever play guitar. From the great Eddie Van Halen, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Slash, Jimmy Page, and so many more bad ass guitar heroes, we have you covered.

I had high hopes of mastering the guitar many years ago. I actually formed a band with some friends before I even took a guitar lesson. Needless to say, it did not pan out. I remember learning 'Wanted Dead Or Alive' on my acoustic, and 'Every Rose Has It's Thorn', but unfortunately I could not play one note of either song today. On a side note, my band  'Stiletto' did look cool in our promotional pictures.

This weekend features no guitar wanna be's like me - only the best of the best. Listen all weekend for double and triple shots of your favorite guitar greats. These men and women are beyond impressive. Is it a gift or built on years and years of practice? I think the answer is both.

Carl Coffey kicks off our Guitar Gods Weekend Saturday at 10:00 AM. Download our station app so you can listen anywhere, anytime - you don't want to miss a lick of our Guitar Gods Weekend.
