Greg Godovitz, the guitarist of Goddo is a helluva character. He’s also a good writer as demonstrated by his memoir, Travels with My Amp. After three printings of that book, he’s now come up with Up Close and Uncomfortable.
“After the success of Travels With My Amp, people wrote in asking for more, so I started the process again,” says Greg. “After one hundred pages of more insanity, I realized I was just repeating myself. This is why there’s no sequel to Travels; I decided on something different.”
Books like this are important when it comes to preserving Canadian music history. It’s a uniquely hoser look our music scene, including stories of Greg’s radio show, his meetings with Beatles and Stones, his time helping to resurrect the El Mocambo, and creating the Toronto Sound Museum.
