The Rivera Interviews

A few months ago I did an interview with Paul Rivera Jr. about his dad noting the details of how and when I met Paul and all that followed as to how amp Rivera modifications started and continued. It is educational information and I think you'll enjoy the details.
Kerstin mentioned I forgot to include Larry Carlton as one of the key studio guitarists of all time. Man, when I started noting details, I was surely thinking of Larry but spaced as to mention him, so since I spaced out let me say this. Before any amp mods started happening in the 70's, Larry already had an outstanding tone (the best sweet midrange tone of all of us studio guitarists) with his 335 and Fender Princeton amp! Also, on most of the Steely Dan records, he used a tweed Fender Deluxe, which also sounds incredible! - Jay
