Art talks about the Jane's Addiction concert he saw the preceding week, his very brief meeting with Perry Farrell, and how the show exceeded his expectations.

The guest is YouTube guitar star, Riffguy. Riffguy shares a taste of his extraordinary guitar skills and talks about how he acquired them, his RGM signature guitar from King Blossom Guitars, and life as a YouTube celebrity. 49 minutes.

Art's comments: "I've been looking forward to this interview ever since I started the podcast. After you listen to this guy play, you can puzzle with me over how he can get 5 million YouTube views, and yet be missed by apparently everyone in the music business. Hey, Judas Priest: I've got your K.K. Downing replacement right here!"
