Arlen Roth Interview – Everyone Loves Guitar #249
Arlen has recorded & played with Simon & Garfunkel, Bob Dylan, John Prine, Phoebe Snow, Levon Helm, The Bee Gees and loads more. He was at the epicenter of the cultural revolution in Greenwich Village AND Woodstock, NY, and basically invented the guitar video lessons industry when he created Hot Licks out of his bedroom using his last $2,000… which he turned this into an empire, selling over 2.5 Million video lessons…
During this conversation, Arlen shares some great stories about playing with Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel, and Levon Helm… growing up in the Bronx… his father, New Yorker Magazine cartoonist, Al Ross… and the devastating accident that took both his wife and daughter, and how he’s dealt with this… and not dealt with this.
This was an incredibly interesting conversation with a guitarist who’s touched so many lives in so many different areas of music, you MUST listen…
