Time to say goodbye …



It is with a heavy heart that, five years after its inception, I will be discontinuing GuitarMania. Our first interview conducted with the amazing STANLEY JORDAN was published on 30 January 2013, and kicked off a series of great conversations over a period of more than five years, including with the likes of JOE SATRIANI, STEVE VAI, ALBERT LEE, JOHN MAYALL, JOHN SCOFIELD, ANDY TIMMONS, PLINI, and many, many more. Now, five years later, it is time to say Thank you to readers and viewers.
