Every night in small bars and clubs all over the world men and women, young and old, talented and delusional grab an ax and step up on stage. Working musicians are keeping the word alive whether they are playing rock or pop or blues or metal or country or some remarkable combination of the above. And most of them have one or more guitars along to help. This book is filled with images and stories about guitars owned by people you may never have heard of. But that makes them no less guitar Gods. Perhaps it even makes them more so because they play for passion and when they strike a pose they are the Jesus of Cool.
