Comes A Time: Scott Metzger

On this episode of Comes A Time, Oteil and Mike sit down with guitarist Scott Metzger! The three discuss the genesis of Scott’s upcoming solo album, what it was like to watch his now-wife (the incredible violinist, Katie Jacoby) crush her spotlight moment with The Who at Madison Square Garden, and getting a $50 tip from Levon Helm when he worked on a sound crew. They also dive deep on the story behind the guitar that Scott wrote his new record on, the clarity that one experiences once they get sober, and bleeding on Stanton Moore’s new couch. Scott is an incredibly kind and thoughtful person and a world-class guitar player, and you won’t want to miss what he has to say in this conversation!
