Continuing its commitment to inspiring musicians, each episode of Guitar Center Sessions is filmed live in front of a studio audience in the world famous Guitar Center Hollywood Vintage Room. The show gives real music fans a rare peak inside the minds of their idols, with Harcourt's thoughtful, conversational questions drawing out new and intimate details from their storied careers. Audiences hear first-hand accounts from each artist about their personal and musical journeys and the influences that molded them into the icons they have become. "Sitting down to talk with Nic felt like a great discussion with a friend, not an inquisition," says Peter Frampton. "I can honestly say it was the best interview of my entire career to date."
"In addition to the incredible live performances Guitar Center Sessions captures, the conversations with these artists are about delving deeper and by providing a window into the creative process, inspiring other musicians," says Harcourt. "Hearing the stories behind some of the great artists of our time--from their perspective--is revealing and fascinating."
"You can't imagine selling 10 million albums anymore," Whibley declares. "It can't happen, it just doesn't exist. Once you take that out of the equation it doesn't matter anymore. All I care about is if we put on a concert, are people there, that's all I care about."
