New York, NY, January 30, 2023 — The latest episode of Gear Club Podcast, featuring a conversation with legendary rock musician Jorma Kaukonen, is now live online at https://www.gear-club.net/episodes/90-jorma-kaukonen. Titled “Fur Peace from Everywhere with Jorma Kaukonen,” the episode is an intimate sitdown with Kaukonen, whose long career includes time spent as electric guitarist extraordinaire for Jefferson Airplane, vocalist/blues picker for Hot Tuna, and a prolific solo artist.
At the age of 82, Jorma is still writing, teaching, and gigging with no signs of slowing down. In this episode of the podcast, hosts Stewart Lerman and John Agnello talk with Jorma about his early career playing Bay Area clubs with Janis Joplin, life in The Airplane, his guitar mentors, speedskating, touring, and holding court at his Fur Peace Ranch where he teaches and performs with guest artists who roll through. During COVID lockdown, Jorma live-streamed weekly concerts from the ranch as well.
