Barry Cleveland: Joe Gore Plays Béla Bartók‘s Fourth String Quartet on Four Guitars

January 18, 2013

... or at least the Fourth Movement.
Longtime GP readers may remember Joe Gore from when he worked at the magazine as an editor. Those same folks, and others, may also know him from his work with Tom Waits, PJ Harvey, Jon Hassell, Lisa Germano, Tracy Chapman, and many more great artists—or his current duo with drummer Dawn Richardson, Mental 99.
But Joe also blogs at, where he posted Meet the REAL Spiders From Mars! Bartók on Electric Guitar.
Click on the image to read what he has to say about Bartók, hear an amazing bit of guitar magic, and watch Joe's entertaining video.


A bluesman honors a bluesman.
The session great talks about meeting B.B. in 1970.
