If you don’t know who any of the following musicians are, then you should probably reconsider what you’ve listened to up until this point in time.

Over the summer, Sly and I decided to do a shoot on an idea I had for iconic guitarists through music history. I had this in the back of my mind for a while, so I was stoked to finally see it come to fruition, especially with Skinner Myers as our model. We’ve seen his work in a J. Crew catalog, and I joked about how awesome it would be to work with him. I’m still unsure how we landed him for this gig, but we did, and the dude nailed it!

I’m not going to waste any time about why you should know these guys, but I guarantee you they’re worth knowing. Click the on the links, and check them out at the very least!

P.S. I’m not the biggest fan of Lenny Kravitz, but I still pay respect where it’s due. Plus, he seems to be a pretty humble dude.

JOHN LESLIE “WES” MONTGOMERY | One of the major jazz guitarists in history. Someone really needs to take us back to that era of music.

JAMES MARSHALL “JIMI” HENDRIX | Perhaps, the greatest and most influential guitarist of all time. If there’s anyone you should know from this group of musicians, it’s him. I got to check out an exhibit dedicated to this guy at a museum in Seattle. More on that in a later post.

NOT-SO-FUN FACT | I was a frontman back in the day. That was a long time ago, a really long time ago, like almost 10 years.
