A bunch of stars aligned for this one. I just happened to be in Nashville for Summer NAMM and Vince and Paul were doing press for Bakersfield, their tribute to the classic California sounds of Buck Owens and Merle Haggard. We shot it in Vince’s home studio, which could easily rival any guitar museum around. Paul did an amazing job of breaking down his approach to the pedal-steel guitar and even told the story of playing in the studio with Megadeth. The most amazing part of the afternoon was after the cameras had been put away Vince pulled out this ’60s-era sunburst Strat and handed it to me. “Check this out,” he said. “This guitar belonged to Hendrix when he was stationed in Nashville.”
