The Head and the Heart’s Josiah Johnson
The main singer for THATH, Josiah Johnson picked up his Breedlove acoustic from time to time, including during “Homecoming Heroes.” Johnson taped a page from a Dave Smith Instruments Prophet 12 keyboard/synth manual to give the guitar a bit more percussive attack.

This year marks Lollapalooza’s 10th year as a destination festival—its 18th overall—in Chicago’s beautiful Grant Park alongside Lake Michigan. Since its inception, Lolla has tried to serve all music fans with a healthy dose of rock, metal, punk, pop, dance, comedy, and hip hop acts. This year was no different with sets from Outkast, Eminem, Kings of Leon, Arctic Monkeys, Interpol, AFI, Cage the Elephant, and hundreds more. Premier Guitar was onsite for all three days and here are just some of the guitar-centric highlights from the event.

The Tour Collection is defined by a minimalistic, vintage-inspired aesthetic, top-of-the-line components, and a simplified electronics configuration featuring new, custom pickups by Supro.
