Tom Colicchio Wants to Show You His Fancy Guitars

By

If you saw him rock out at last years Midnight Music and Munchies event at the New York City Wine & Food Festival, you know Tom Colicchio is a venerable axman. So howd he master those Neil Young licks? Private lessons from Jefferson Airplanes Jorma Kaukonen, according to an article in the premiere issue of Guitar Aficionado. The magazine is described as a glossy about rich baby-boomer celebs and their very expensive guitar collections and none other than Don Colicchio, whose collection is valued at $45,000, is on the cover showing off a $5,000 Gretsch thats identical to the one George Harrison played. Best part of the article, which unfortunately isnt online (youll have to pick up a hard copy for Colicchios wine recommendations), is when Colicchio gets all Lloyd Betnsen about the matter of rock-star chefs: Let me tell you I know a few rock stars. Ive been out with a few rock stars. And we are definitely not rock stars. And now, below: Perhaps the greatest photo you will ever see.
