    Default Tone-Talk.com - My new show with Dave Friedman - Lots of VH content and guitar stuff!

    Hey everyone,

    I hope all is great! A month ago I launched a new talk show with Dave Friedman of Friedman Amplification called Tone-Talk. As you may know, Dave Friedman has worked with EVH for years and knows his tone and rig better than most. And, he's also worked with tons of other amazing musicians.

    The show has already had Grover Jackson (we discussed the Bumblebee from Charvel) and George Metropulos from Metropoulos Amplification. The show is relaxed and we are just hanging out shooting the stuff with top notch guests. We are going to have some killer guests that I am so excited to announce as the show continues.

    Hey, Mark!
    Awesome video so far! Just saw the Grover/Jimmy Page story... Unreal! I'll certainly check out more, but first wanted to say thanks and good luck with the new show. Awesome stuff so far.
    Cheers from Canada!

    Grover is still sticking to the story, that he gave Edward the Bee, just before the VHII photo shoot,
    when there are photos of Edward playing it in Europe, in October of '78...hmm...strange

    Woke him out of bed, even...

    Can you post those photos that dispute his story? I'm curious to see. I'm pretty confident in Grover's memory of things and honestly, why embellish about it? But, i'd love to see those pictures that can be dated.

    Thanks for watching!

    I found the Grover Jackson video to be a great listen. I'd love to sit down with him over a few beers, there's a wealth of info about the era I love in his head.
    If you always search for bullshit on the Internet, all you ever read is bullshit
