Drake Bell: The Gibson Interview

He has a point: As co-star (along with Josh Peck) of Nickelodeon’s smash hit show Drake & Josh, Bell, with his boyish good looks and mop-top hair, has become a heartthrob to millions of teens, tweens, and their moms. A cushy life of adoring girls and fat paychecks awaits, provided Bell plays the game. “Which is exactly what I won’t do,” he laughs. Seated in a tour bus en route from Missouri to Michigan, Bell expands on what he calls the “teen idol nightmare scenario”: “Picture me at 30 still trying to act like a teenager on Drake & Josh. It’d be sad. Pretty soon you’d see me in real life living with a bunch of fellow losers in some horrible reality show. No thanks. I’ve got a bigger plan.”

Far beneath the rafters of a humming old warehouse in downtown Nashville, Tennessee, there are rows of guitar cases, most of them containing a Gibson and a story. Each case in Gibson Repair & Restoration is tagged, oftentimes with customer names like Willie Nelson or Dave Grohl, and some show addresses as far away as Australia or the U.K.

I used to get nosebleeds relatively frequently as a kid, so I was pretty much used to them. But this time the crimson flood was leaking out of my nose directly onto the pair of ripped, stonewashed Levi’s that the 12-year-old version of me had picked out for the biggest night of my life: Guns N’ Roses at Richfield Coliseum in Cleveland, Ohio. Pair that Pollock-splattered denim with an original “Guns N’ Roses Was Here” T-shirt, and I was ready for my first real rock show.

Ryan Adams has just released his ninth studio album, Easy Tiger. It includes the singles “Halloweenhead” and “Two,” a duet with Sheryl Crow. But the best songs happen to be the classically tortured singer-songwriter’s most personal.

When Johnny Winter plays live, the hardest part of the night is never the actual gig itself. The real challenge is found in those final minutes just before showtime. That’s when Johnny, his focus intensifying, starts peppering those around him with questions. When are we going on? How much longer? It has become somewhat of a ritual over time, and those who work most closely with him—including Paul Nelson, Winter’s second guitarist and bandleader, and Jonathan “Mojo” Moorehead, Winter’s guitar tech and right-hand man—are careful not to make promises that they can’t keep. Truth is, sometimes a 10 p.m. start time becomes 10:20 p.m., and when that happens, there’s nothing that Johnny can do other than wait it out on the tour bus...

Packing more gargantuan guitar riffs than should be allowable by law, a live show that can test the underpinnings of the sturdiest arena, and a steady hit parade of sonic gems such as “Monkey Wrench,” Everlong,” “My Hero,” and “Big Me,” the Foo Fighters have, since 1995, firmly positioned themselves as one of rock’s top cats.

A year and a half after the release of Neil Young’s rabble-rousing Living with War, he’s unleashing Chrome Dreams II, an album that looks back to some of his vintage recordings, rather than sounding an anxious alarm about current events, like 2003’s Greendale and Living with War.
