Interview with Jon Gomm

Check out my interview with guitar legend Jon Gomm before his gig at Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar last night, where he talks about crowdsourcing, his banjo pegs, his jazz education and much more.

He was a very lovely chap, even with his poor habit of feeding chips to the seagull on the seafront. His gig in the evening was a brilliant showcase of his guitar and vocal abilities, including a lesson for how to play drums on guitar and an insight into his background, playing in the working men’s clubs of Blackpool  (“The city Brighton could have been” he quipped in response to a heckler) to particularly unreceptive audiences of “confused Glaswegian pensioners on holiday” prompting him to bring out one of his trademark showpieces, his instrumental arrangement of Chaka Khan’s ‘Ain’t Nobody’
