Virtuoso solo artist and super sidewoman JENNIFER BATTEN gained renown in the late '80s when MICHAEL JACKSON hired her to rock stadiums with him all over the globe. They did three mega-tours together, including playing at the 1993 Superbowl halftime show for a worldwide viewership of approximately 1.3 billion people. Batten went on to accompany the great JEFF BECK on stage and in the studio, and has released thrilling solo albums under her own name. For this episode we head to the home of -- speaking of great players -- GRETCHEN MENN and DANIELE GOTTARDO (who were each featured on this podcast in earlier episodes), where Batten plugs in her Washburn Parallaxe electric guitar, jams with host JUDE GOLD, and reflects on everything from her past musical adventures to her current California co-headlining tour with Gretchen and NILI BROSH.
Episode 100 finds PUDDLE OF MUDD lead guitarist MATT FULLER plugging in and detailing the recording of the band’s new album, WELCOME TO GALVANIA, as well as chronicling the adventures and misadventures he has had with the group since joining in 2012. Matt also shares an an inspiring BRIAN MAY story, reflects on playing with BOW WOW WOW and other bands, and introduces you to his cool SHECTER guitars and ORANGE amplifiers …. And, yes — this is the 100th episode of No Guitar Is Safe! Thank you to the the many of you who have been faithful listeners and helped spread the word about this show. In celebration of this milestone moment, at the end of my interview with Matt I offer you a special epilogue in which I share some insights into the nearly 100 “helicopter rides” I have embarked upon to bring all these epic guitar hangs to your podcast feed.

Episode 99 features SAMANTHA FISH, the soulful young, Kansas City-bred guitarist/singer, plugging in with me in Beverly Hills, performing songs from her new album, KILL OR BE KIND [Rounder Records], as well as riffing on other cool staples of her live set. Samantha also proves "War Pigs" can be performed in blues clubs and shares the funniest banana prank since Eddie Murphy's banana shenanigans in Beverly Hills Cop .... Actually, Samantha's prank is actually funnier than Eddie's, I think. You decide.
