TIME FOR MORE OF ED HUERTA’S
HE‘ART “N” SOUL
Welcome to Ed Huerta’s
He‘Art “N” Soul. This is the 4th installment here on Jackaboutguitars.com. If you are new to this column, then a little introduction is in order. It’s not at all about the interviews with the megastars of music. This column sheds some light on some very talented people that you may not recognize by name. These musicians need their stories told as much as the Clapton’s of the world. So kick back and relax for a few minutes. I truly appreciate you and please enjoy as I delve into the stories of these artists’ music and what they have to say. – Ed Huerta
This profile is about a man that should be a household word amongst musicians; guitarists especially. He is certainly well known in the punk rock and jazz genres. Now wait, don’t go turning off your mind because I said the “P” word. Punk rock doesn’t necessarily mean drugged out kids running around in black leather with Mohawks and razor blades embedded in their skin. That’s the old television show (see Quincy M.E.) image meant to send mom and dad scurrying into your room to throw away your Ramones and Vandals records and to discover your p*t stash that you thought you hid well.
There are several types of punk rock as there are several types of jazz or blues or rock and roll. So now that this is understood, read on and experience the man that several of his musical contemporaries have called the “Carlos Santana of punk rock”. In my opinion, this is much too limiting of a moniker.
