Interview: ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons and the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach

Mississippi Fred McDowell’s haunted, woody voice sails through the air as the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach nurses a cup of coffee and flips through a vintage lunchbox-sized valise designed for carrying 45 rpm records. “Lord, when you get home baby,” the late bluesman cries as his slide guitar cuts a zigzagging melody, “won’t you write me a few of your lines.” “Found it!” Auerbach exults as McDowell keeps spinni ...

Guitar Girl’d: Interview with Jessie Murphy of We Are The Woods on the Release of ‘Whales and Roses’

The first time I heard Jessie Murphy and We Are The Woods, I thought maybe they were a bit too sweet and pretty for Guitar World. But on further inspection, Murphy has proved me wrong. She can enrapture and wail! Part rocker, part quirkster, part folky, part songstress. Murphy’s parts make a very delightful whole. With the release of their new album, Whales and Roses, she and bandmates Marcia Webb and Tyler ...

Interview: Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong on ‘¡Uno!,’ ‘¡Dos!’ and ‘¡Tre!’

If there’s any overriding theme for ¡Uno! ¡Dos! and ¡Tré! — Green Day’s monumental forthcoming trio of albums—that’s it: the weird phantom zone between having a grownup’s responsibilities and wanting to spend your whole life getting your teenage rocks off.
