Let's talk about guitar riffs and guitarists that set music on fire. Stephen Hendry, 23 from Lodi, CA, is our guest this Friday. His earliest influences are pop-punk bands like The Offspring, New Found Glory, Sum 41, and Blink 182, but today he follows bands and artists like Airbourne, Social Distortion, and Frank Turner. Stephen’s musical interests are based in punk, metal, and especially rock'n'roll, with a touch of blues and pop. Stephen’s most profound influences are Jimmy Page, Joe Perry, Keith Richards, Pete Townshend, and Mike Ness. Stephen plays around the Sacramento area, either jamming with or backing up most of the local musicians on the scene. Whether practicing or keeping busy with gigs, his motivation always boils down to the fact that he loves to play and takes pride in his abilities.
