G.E. Smith is one of the most in-demand blues/rock guitarists in the world. He got his break in the late 70s backing Dan Hartman before joining Hall & Oates as their lead guitarist for six years. TV Viewers know him best as the Music Director for Saturday Night Live, where he lead the band between 1985 and 1995. He's toured with Bob Dylan and Roger Waters, and has played with everyone from Mick Jagger to Tina Turner to David Bowie to Jimmy Buffet. In 2007 he celebrated the launch of his GE Smith signature Fender Telecaster.
Tune in to hear G.E. talk about the SNL years, what it was like to be married to Gilda Radner, how the Hall & Oates song Maneater came to be, and why he loves being a sideman. Plus- a live, in-studio performance.
