Jeff Schroeder has been the guitarist for alternative rock band The Smashing Pumpkins for more than a decade now - becoming a mainstay of their touring line-up since he joined in 2007. Before that, he was an integral member of The Lassie Foundation. They were regarded as a trailblazing act who developed their own unique 'shoegaze' guitar sound.
During the interview, The Captain talks with Jeff about sharing festivals with Dream Theater and The Cure, as well as his guitar inspirations. There's even a hands-on discussion/demonstration about pedals, where the guy's show you just how to nail some of Jeff's favourite tones!
