Post Chris Arvan - HAS BEEN FOUND!
Ok guys,

I found Chris Arvan's email and I have sent him a message. I'm hoping that I can interview him and find out what's been going on, of course how he got the gig...stuff like that.

I will let you know, the second I hear anything.

Very cool, Ken! I've been as curious as anyone about this hermit prodigy. :lol:

Looking forward to your hearing back from him.

Interesting. I didn't know New Wave was still a viable music genre. Hard to believe someone with his chops would be playing that kind of music.

micheal hedges is this really crazy acustic tapping guy. youve seen those acustic players who tap chords and stuff. he pioneered it. execpt he died a while ago making a little hard to get a hold of him.

What a pleasant surprise...

I'm sitting in my hotel room...surf the web..watching Deadwood...and this email pops in my inbox....CHRIS ARVAN.

Hey Ken,

My friend Michael forwarded your email to me. I would be very
interested
in doing an interview with you about my time in Racer X. Thank you for
finding me and asking.... I'm very busy right now with work, but I'm
sure we could schedule some time in the next week or so...

Lets talk soon.

Best Regards,

Chris Arvan

P.S -Where did you live in Burlingame? Did you grow up there? Thats
where I grew up.



I plan on interviewing him either before or after my Japan trip.. So...Speak now or forever hold your peace!!

Please post any questions that you would like me to ask Chris. I will consolidate and forward. Of course I'll be writing my own...but I suspect some of you will come up with some I don't think about.

That's very cool! I can't think of any good questions at the moment, but maybe later. This will be interesting to read.

2 questions.

1. How did he venture from playing RX stuff to playing http://www.wowcougar.com/video.html

2. What did he use in his setup/rig and does he still have any of it

That's a good one.
I wanted to know what his guitar preference was then, & what it is now. Some of his old & more recent influences in his guitar playing?
