DirecTV has knocked the cobwebs off of its musical performance/interview series, 'Guitar Center Sessions,' bringing it back for nine new episodes, beginning with the recently aired Joe Walsh episode. The series, which is hosted by Nic Harcourt, features the musicians playing some of their biggest hits and talking about their influences and what motivates them.
“In the upcoming episodes of Guitar Center Sessions, we really get down to the root of how these artists have overcome their struggles on the road to success,” says Harcourt. “These are musicians who have found a way to turn their passion into a profession, and by sharing their stories, we aim to inspire more artists to follow suit.”
Walsh, the legendary Eagles guitarist, kicked the relaunched series off on December 7.
“I am really proud of the finished product," Walsh said. "It is always a crap shoot to film and record a concert live, but my band showed up and rocked, and I am excited to present that to everyone. It was also a pleasure to work with Nic Harcourt; he is both a gentleman and a scholar.”
All of the shows are show in HD at the Guitar Center in Hollywood. Below is a schedule of performances, as well as a clip of the recently reunited Ben Folds Five playing their hit, "Brick." Their episode plays premieres next Friday.
