Prepare for an extraordinary episode of Academy of Tone as Thomas shares his incredible encounters with legendary artists!
During his time at No.1 Guitar Center in Hamburg, Thomas had the privilege of meeting some truly remarkable individuals. From old friends to exciting new encounters, the lineup of guests is nothing short of extraordinary.
One of the highlights was a special interview with Darryl Jones, the current bassist of the Rolling Stones and a former collaborator of iconic musicians like Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, and Peter Gabriel. Thomas dives deep into Darryl's musical journey, sharing their insightful conversation that will be featured on the @No1GuitarCenter Channel in a few weeks.
But the excitement doesn't end there! Thomas also had the opportunity to perform alongside Darryl and the iconic German singer Inga Rumpf at the Crossroads Festival Gig on Saturday. This festival, hosted by No1 Guitar Center, brings together guitar enthusiasts from all corners of the scene. During the event, Thomas engaged in an epic guitar battle with Peter Weihe, known as THE studio guitarist in Germany, whose incredible skills can be heard on numerous international hits. Jean-Jacques Kravetz, a french Keyboarder known to play for Udo Lindenberg and Peter Maffay also joined the Gig.
