The podcast for ConciergeQ Conversations with Chantal Westerman. First of all, Chantal gives a glowing introduction to Jim. Then the interview - one of the best ones we have heard, read or seen: with a lot of interesting questions  about food and travel; life on the road (the good sides and the bad ones) about Avril, Cher... and more! Jim's answers are VERY intersting as well. Amazing stuff.

Check out the phone interview - it's awesome. Jim talks about everything and anything, he is very informative and funny. Or as the write up says:

Jim McGorman is currently on tour as Avril Lavigne's guitarist in support of her latest record, Goodbye Lullaby. The multi-instrumentalist was also a part of the house band for both season's of the CBS show "Rockstar" (INXS & Supernova).  He's toured with a variety of people, including Cher, Shakira, and Paul Stanley of Kiss.  In addition, he also makes music of his own.  Icon Fetch talks with the Philadelphia native about his multi-faceted career - how he got hooked up with Lavigne, helped put together a made for TV band, and manged to continue to be a much-sought after instrumentalist.  He also shares some great stories of being on the road.


No wonder he is our favourite musician!
