This week on Kingdom of Rock, guitarists Matt Gibson and Amanda Bocchi spoke to Michael Molenda, Editor in Chief of Guitar Player Magazine. Michael shared about the challenges of running a major magazine for guitar players. We also conversed about how running a magazine has changed in the new music business and how the magazine has shifted to serve the needs of guitar players. We touched on the changes in the industry now that the power for your career is in your hands and the pros and the cons of the new DIY music industry.
