To most, G.E. Smith is the magnetic, blond-pony-tailed guitarist who once fronted Saturday Night Live's house band and jammed with some of the biggest names in the business. What is less well-known is that Smith is one of the most prolific, respected guitarists and musicologists working today. 50 Watt Fuse begins at Fender headquarters with the production of a G.E. Smith--model Fender Telecaster guitar. Smith describes how such a guitar has taken him around the world to create music with his greatest influences. With thoughtful interviews and classic performances from Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Mick Jagger, Hall & Oates, Rosanne Cash and others, this is the curriculum vitae of an immense musical talent and quintessential sideman. — S.
