Workshop: Tom Wheeler

If you're serious about your music, publicity, or management you won't want to miss this. 

"After freelancing for Rolling Stone, Tom served as editor-in-chief of Guitar Player magazine and founding editorial director of Bass Player. He left Guitar Player in 1991, which, according to the National Guitar Museum, signaled the end of the magazine’s golden era.

Wheeler has interviewed Muddy Waters, B.B. King, Chuck Berry, Eric Clapton, Les Paul, Leo Fender, Keith Richards, and hundreds of other artists and key figures in the history and evolution of the modern guitar. He was a consultant to the Smithsonian Institution and to the publishers of The Guitar Collection: An Elite Gathering of 150 Exceptional Guitars and has been interviewed by The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Chicago Tribune, The Wall Street Journal, U.S. News & World Report, Irish Public Radio, American Public Radio, MTV, NPR, the BBC, and CNN. He appears in the Smithsonian Channel’s documentary Electrified: The Guitar Revolution, serves on Fender’s Hall of Fame Selection Committee, and was the writer and host of informational videos for Fender and Guild."
