Dino & the Gig of Life

For the conclusion of our conversation, Dino Monoxelos (Ampeg) waxes philosophical on the road taken. From his encounter with a street gang, balancing music talent with relationships, choosing family over fame, and returning to where he grew up. In doing Dino shares about disappointment but not allowing it to let him lose sight, or resent, his childhood dream. Dino also shares his definitive answers on Star Wars vs Star Trek, Fruit, Gene Simmons, Useless Talents, and a parting gift of sage advise. Segments in this episode: Deep Shower Thought: You have spoken, and I didn't have to think to hard to keep the thoughts flowing. Gear in Here: Jeff Beck Signature Stratocaster.  Acquired in 2005, this guitar quickly, and oddly, became a favorite. While briefly exploring the history of this model in the Fender lineup, and how I came to own mine. Jeff Beck may not be as well-known as his contemporaries; Hendrix, Page, Gilmour and Clapton (to name a few), but his influence may be even more undeniable. Also, the 2-track music bed for this portion were each performed in one take. Both times I am using this guitar direct into my MOTU M4, with plug-ins included for their Performer Lite DAW (recording software). --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/livelifeloud/support
