|George Cole (2015)|
|If San Francisco native George Cole were himself a guitar, then the usual six strings would not be enough: he's guitarist (of course), vocalist, composer, lyricist, producer, arranger, music educatora, and performer.
Over the years, George has played lead guitar in many bands, among them Young Country, The Upstarts, Zula Pool, Bammy Award recipients Beatnik Beatch, and Big Blue Hearts. He has toured with Joe Walsh, sung duets with Keely Smith, and appeared on Chris Isaak’s platinum-selling "Forever Blue" album. He was also guitar instructor and mentor to Billie Joe Armstrong and Mike Dirnt of Green Day.
George fronts his own gypsy-jazz band, and somehow makes time to be part of the band of mandolin maestro Dave Grisman.
