I get the chance to see him often being that he lives in Wauwatosa (Milwaukee).
I made this video with the FLIP camera at a Fender Clinic at Cascio Music here in town.
He speaks as well as he plays guitar. Hearing Greg tell stories on local radio is delightful. Leo Kottke and Greg Koch are two of the best stories tellers that I've every listened to in person.
I have lots of respect for Greg.
The guy who first built the Luxury Drive and then the Diabolical Gristle Tone Manipulator and then the Gristle King (which is the first two in one box) is Tim Jauernig who lived here for a while and now lives in central WI. I went to school with Tim and played with him for about one year in Wausau.
Nice guys. Local heroes.
