“It seems today that the respect for guitar virtuosos has been going the way of the buffalo. Thankfully, we may have our savior in Rod DeGeorge, a prodigy from the Philadelphia area. Sharing the stage with the likes of Paul Stanley (KISS), Earl Slick (John Lennon and David Bowie), members of Foreigner, Bad Company and 38 Special, DeGeorge has held his own among solidified music legends.
Currently enjoying the success of his instrumental powerhouses, Cosmic Playground, and Quantum Dancing, DeGeorge still manages to give back, teaching young musicians composition and songwriting skills. One would think that such a multi-talented professional who has played halftime shows for the NFL, appearing on VH1, E!, a major motion picture, as well as performing for presidential crowds, would be less inclined to push the boundaries, but DeGeorge takes pride in honing his wide variety of music chops, from composing to teaching to commercial work.”

Additionally, DeGeorge has a signature model with the Italian guitar company, and makers of the Handle Guitar, XOX Audio Tools, as well as endorsemnets with Gibson Guitars, Dunlop Accessories and Dark Horse Strings.

– Elliott Randall (Steely Dan)
