Maxine Eastman-Jackson

Maxine Eastman-Jackson met her future husband, Bud, in school when they were 14 years old. The year they married, 1953, they moved to Provo, UT, where Bud worked at Modern Music by day and gave guitar lessons that Maxine would schedule, each night. In 1966 they moved to San Jose to operate the Guitar Showcase and worked very closely with each other. It was at this time that Bud had the idea to form a guitar organization that would include a newsletter. By 1974 that newsletter evolved into the monthly Guitar Player Magazine. Maxine is also the mother of Musician’s Friend founder Robert Eastman.
