Rolling Stone magazine has dubbed guitarist Marc Ribot the “go-to guitar guy for all kinds of roots-music adventurers”—an apt description given the versatility of his playing and the breadth of his collaborations. From Tom Waits’s 1985 Rain Dogs to recordings with Laurie Anderson, The Black Keys, Allen Ginsburg, Elton John, Norah Jones, Alison Krauss, Robert Plant, John Zorn, and others, Ribot has again and again proved himself a formidable partner and a musical force in a 30-year career. With 19 albums under his name, running the gamut from pioneering jazz to experimental no-wave, he has performed on numerous film scores, including Walk the Line and The Departed, and works frequently with producer T Bone Burnett. Guitar at his side, Ribot shares what it’s like to have a busy and innovative hand in American music.
