EP32 The Guitar Hero - Geoff Tyson

12. 8. 2021 | The Bla Bla Bunker

Geoff Tyson has lived his life in the music industry since he was 15 years old. Growing up in Berkeley California which was a hotspot for new rock and metal music in the early 80's. There he witnessed the rise of bands such as Metallica, Megadeth and Testament to name a few. From the age of 13 he was a private student of the legendary guitar virtuoso Joe Satriani and Joe later said that two guitarists had "graduated" from him, Geoff and Steve Vai (Whitesnake, David Lee Roth). At 15 Geoff joined a band called T-Ride that was expected to be the next big thing, their album took over 5 years to make and they got played on MTV, toured around and all was heading for a glorious path of an up and coming band. But then Nirvana happened and overnight the demand for T-Ride's music and Geoff's amazing guitar skills dropped faster than a brick in a swimming pool. And as if that was not bad enough then he lost everything except his guitar in a fire in San Francisco. Despite these setbacks Geoff has made a great career, living from what he loves, as he has toured with bands such as Filter, Nazareth, Queens of the Stone age and Duran Duran! He told me his story, how the music industry has changed and a lot....lot more. Geoff now lives in Prague, Czech Republic where the Geoff Tyson Band has hit the top of the radio charts, and has been playing festivals all over Europe. A small sample of Geoff's music can be heard on my episode but check out more about him and his albums on these links here.
