After Sammy joined Van Halen Gary was asked by Tom Scholz to join Boston and he's been in the band since 1986.

Today on LET THERE BE TALK it's all Rock N Roll with my guest photographer Cody Smyth.

Cody was there from day 1 of The Strokes and took photos for over 10 years and now he has put that collection of photos together in a book called THE STROKES the first 10 YEARS.

This book absolutely blows my mind. To be able to see photos of The Strokes from the ground up and document it as they were about to explode is so cool.

Today on Let There Be Talk my guest is one of the greatest guitars players alive Mr Josh Zee.

If you have never heard of Josh Zee you can thank me after this episode. This man is a monster on the guitar. 

Josh is one of my oldest friends from the Bay Area and today we sit down and reminisce about all things Rock n Roll.

Josh played in a great band in the early 90's called Protein that signed a massive record deal on Sony / Works records.

After a couple of records Protein disbanded and Josh started another very successful band called The Mother Truckers with his wife Teal Collins. They moved to Austin Texas for 10 years and made a bunch of great records.

Josh and Teal are back in the Bay Area now playing more music than ever.

Josh has been my right hand man for all these years every time I fire up the Tribute to Bon Scott and I couldn't imagine doing the shows with anyone else on lead guitar.

Sit back and enjoy 2 friends talking Rock.

Happy Holidays.
