Interview with Phil X, guitarist with Bon Jovi, The Drills and former Fretted Americana YouTube videos. Hello, Dan here! I've been fortunate enough to hang with Phil X on a number of occasions, and he is undoubtedly one of the coolest guys I know. Currently with Bon Jovi, he is a truly gifted rock guitar player who exudes intensity and attitude, but who also understands dynamics and sensitivity. I've been a fan since his 'Fretted Americana' days on YouTube, so when Phil was passing through London I grabbed the opportunity to sit with him and see if I could glean some insight into just how he does what he does.
