3 Doors Down Guitarist Talks Time of My Life

(Gibson) 3 Doors Down lead guitarist Matt Roberts checked in with Gibson.com to talk about the writing process behind Time of My Life, switching up producers and why Gibson guitars "have such different personalities."

The new album, Time of My Life. This was the first time 3 Doors Down have worked with Howard Benson. What was that like? Yes, we kind of use a different producer on almost every different record, so we basically find whoever is in touch with the project. We interview at least a dozen producers, and Howard has talked with us before on past records, and he was in touch with what we wanted to do with this. So, it was a great experience.

What was the writing process like for, Time of My Life? Most of the time what happens is the music comes first. I'll sit down and write a guitar riff and bounce it off the other guys and develop music, or Chris [Henderson, guitarist] will come in with guitar riff and give it to me. The melody and music get built, and then Brad [Arnold, vocals] comes in and writes the lyrics. Sometimes he writes the lyrics and melody first, but most of the time, the lyrics come at the end.
