Adrian Belew

Oral History Information

Interview Date
Job Title
Musician, songwriter

Adrian Belew had the NAMM attendees on their feet when he joined the All Star Guitar Night in Nashville 2003. Perhaps the feelings were more than just an appreciation for his music as many NAMM members in the audience have become close to him as a product specialist over the years. Those members suggested that Adrian become a part of the NAMM Oral History program because they respect him and the role he has played in music over his long career. Among his connections with musical instrument companies, Adrian has had a long association with Electro-Harmonix.  He also worked closely with Roland when their GR-300 Guitar Synthesizer was being created.
