About this show

One of the most in-demand blues/rock guitarists in the world is a mysterious character who goes by the name of G.E. Smith. Millions of TV viewers know his face -- and the shock of unruly blond ponytail that was always falling across it -- from his 10 years (1985-1995) of fronting the Saturday Night Live band. His prominent position led to collaborations with Mick Jagger, Peter Wolfe, David Bowie, Bob Dylan, and Buddy Guy among others. G.E. has been described as a free agent who hits home runs wherever he goes and as the janitor of rock, who cleans it all up. That second part is a disservice to the first person some of the biggest musical stars in the world call when they need a hand. $10 Food or Drink Minimum When the phone rings at the Smith residence, this multi-instrumentalist/songwriter/singer/producer/arranger/music director never knows who might ask him for a hand.
