Glassjaw – Justin Beck Guitar Covers

One of my all time favorite bands over the past 20 years has been glassJAw. Justin Beck is a very interesting guitar player. He uses the guitar like an abstract painter uses a canvas. Yes, some of their riffs are technical with weird time signatures and changes; but he does not adhere to any rules. Noise is good, and it works! He is extremely innovative and these songs were fun to learn. Enjoy! Here are …

First Look – Warmack

From the recent article at South Park Magazine: Comfort-food cravings and obsessive, gotta-have-it snack attacks, while known to strike at any time, are particularly acute when approaching the bewitching hour. For Charlotte hospitality veteran and restaurateur James Nguyen, the inability to find a late-night spot in his Plaza Midwood neighborhood to satisfy longings for the foods he grew up with — piquant and earthy Vietnamese banh mi, shrimp crisps, and slow-braised pork belly rice bowls …

Anthony Smith of Chef’s Kitchen

Recently I shot some photos for an article in South Park Magazine featuring a local chef. Since his first restaurant job at age 17, Charlotte Chef Anthony Smith has worked tirelessly to beat the odds in a tough business. It’s a great read!

I had the pleasure of photographing the 246th anniversary of the Mecklenburg county Declaration of Independence signing. I think I’m still partially deaf from all the Canon fire, yes you read that right. They fired off a large colonial cannon numerous times.

Gear Alert – My Stompboxes

So I’m going to preface this by stating I know there is a giant market for custom boutique pedals. Some are well worth the price tag but others are just copies of copies. I also know it’s somewhat of a collectors market too. I am that way but certain things but stomp boxes are not one of them. I can 100% justify using them in the studio but I typically go for functionality and reliability …

Hello, my name is Justin Driscoll. Originally from New Jersey, I call the wonderful state of North Carolina home. 

I might have taken your photo at some point or met you at a Rock N Roll show? However, I also have many other facets of my life I am passionate about. I started this site to talk about some of those things.

Whether it be guitars, guitar gear, Harley’s, Jeep stuff, photography, vinyl or travels, I’ll be on here to chat about it.

Who is the last REAL rockstar?
"Lemmy would probably be the cool answer to give but I’m going with Freddie Mercury. He conquered a lot of odds, commanded the stage and didn’t care what people thought. He also (in my opinion) has the best voice in Rock."

What would be the most important lesson you would teach your daughters?
"Hard work and brutal honesty. When you are truthful, faithful and passionate things seem to fall into place. You make your own luck. Shoot people straight and treat them the way you want to be treated."

If you could be an animal, which one would you be?
"Call me Michelangelo, I am going with a turtle. If I was not digging things I’d chill inside my shell. Living slow and steady."

What are some of your most notable musical influences?
"Nirvana made me want to start a band, they will always be my #1. That band got me into Black Flag and punk rock, which changed my life. From there I really got into more hardcore like Converge & Snapcase. Glassjaw was a perfect bridge between a lot of it. I also love older stuff like Sprintgeen and The Allman Brothers band."
