The Session, filmed using a multi-camera shoot for Guitar Center’s Sessions Series, featured a live interview with famed LA DJ Jim Ladd (the last free form rock DJ in America) from LA’s classic rock station, KLOS. “I've seen a lot of videos in my life... I've never seen anything quite like this... quite as informative and at the same time, easy to watch. Just flat interesting,"said Jim.
More appearances and events are currently being planned for 2011.
