Guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen From Queens Of The Stone Age Download

28:58 Download November 4th, 2022

I had the chance to sit down with Troy Van Leeuwen at Echopark guitars in Detroit. More on that in a few. Troy and I talked about his current gig, filling in for Dave Navaro as he recovers from long Covid, and playing with Jane’s Addiction. We discussed the multitude of quality musicians he’s played with in his various projects, including Jane’s, A Perfect Circle, Queens of the Stoneage and more. I asked where “hired gun” ends and “band member” begins. He told me the legend who inspired him to pick up the guitar, and a great story about meeting him, and lots more.  

We did the interview in Echopark guitars shop where all the instruments are made. You can learn more about them below. A big Thank You to Gabriel Currie and his staff. Also, Thank You to Robert Bruce for setting up the interview.
