SiriusXM Celebrates Greatest Guitarists as Part of International Guitar Month
06 Apr 2021
As part of International Guitar Month, a new streaming channel has been launched by SiriusXM which will honour the world's greatest guitarists. SiriusXM Guitar Greats
features guest DJs sharing music from some of their favourite guitarists. Many of the musicians celebrated are also Genesis authors, including Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton and Tom Morello.
In Jimmy Page: The Anthology Portfolio
, his guitars are given centre stage, having now been made available as large format archival prints. The detail captured in each print tells a story, from the wood grain to the wear and tear, mapping his phenomenal rock and roll career.
"In the early Sixties I saw my Les Paul Custom 'Black Beauty' in a shop on Charing Cross Road. When I plugged it in it was like a dream, I had to have it. I used it throughout my studio musician years on the majority of sessions so I was deeply connected to this guitar." - Jimmy Page
In subscribing to the channel there is also an opportunity to win a Gibson Les Paul Standard 1950s Tobacco Burst, like the one played by Eric Clapton during his time with Cream.
SiriusXM Guitar Greats
is streaming now through to 19th April.
