Mark Hitt Interview – Everyone Loves Guitar

A lifetime sideman, Mark’s played over 3,000 gigs with artists like John Entwistle, Leslie West, Billy Squier, Michael Bolton, Neil Schon, Jack Bruce, Randy Jackson, Joe Satriani, The Tubes, Brian Johnson, David Johansen. Also a member of Rat Race Choir, one of the most popular NYC area bands.

  2. What an amazing talent and fun person he was. My brother, James Lawrence has always been a HUGE fan, and also we a His grandma and mine were sisters! so cool to be – family. I am 12 years younger than James and Mark, so I knew him somewhat at family gatherings. James nearly was a roadie and they loved each other’s company! James’ love for guitar was encouraged and celebrated through Mark HItt! James and Mark were kindred spirits and James was devastated to hear of his passing. Sadly his cousin James lost his battle with cancer in October 2023,and I have no doubt they are rocking hard up there in heaven together! Play on…play on!
