Hello, Dan here!
I've been fortunate enough to hang with Phil X on a number of occasions, and he is undoubtedly one of the coolest guys I know.
Currently with Bon Jovi, he is a truly gifted rock guitar player who exudes intensity and attitude, but who also understands dynamics and sensitivity.
I've been a fan since his 'Fretted Americana' days on YouTube, so when Phil was passing through London I grabbed the opportunity to sit with him and see if I could glean some insight into just how he does what he does
I hope you enjoy this episode. Please subscribe to our channel.
