GARY PIHL QUOTES
I feel like the luckiest guy in the world
I´ve been in BOSTON for 30 years
What was the first BOSTON song Gary heard?
“Couple of months later I joined Sammy Hagar band.We joined the BOSTON tour.”
In 1985 Tom called and asked to finish third stage album. I´ve been there ever since
When i was 10 my dad bought me a guitar
Gary took lessons from Jerry Garcia
His mom worked with Bruce Springsteen´s mom
Sat next to Johnny Colla in school
BOSTON vs Boston? What´s the story?
People are smiling and singing along. I get a lump in my throat. There is nothing like it.
It´s mostly Tom but he takes suggestions from all of us. He´s the principal songwriters
one of my favorites is Walk On, we all get to improvise so it´s never the same twice.
Different audiences respond differently to our songs
We use all the same amps we´ve built and Tom designed. It´s got that sound!
Classic Rock Christmas perform traditional holiday songs but in the styles of other rock bands
Classic Rock Christmas is a benefit for a local food bank
I enjoy working on fixing amplifiers
“Life Love Hope” was recorded on tape. That´s a sound we all love. It´s hard to find a tape.
Go to school and learn whatever else you want to learn as well. Find out more about life
Go out and live life so you bring experience to music so you have something to offer
SONG OF THE SHOW
“God Rest Ya Merry Gentlemen-The First Noel” by The December People
