Carlos Guitarlos

C1 C2 C3Highland Park – This story only took a year to set up. Carlos Guitarlos did not return my phone calls for a solid year and then out of the blue he called me up like an old friend just catching up on the good old days. A bluesy/folky guitar hero, Carlos was part of the L.A. punk scene with the band Top Jimmy and The Rhythm Pigs.

My notes from our interviews look like directions to long forgotten venues and bars. When Carlos speaks he punctuates each sentence with a guitar trill, a scale or a song, and if he’s really on a roll he will sing.
