Congrats to Epiphone’s GRAMMY nominees including Signature Artist Gary Clark Jr. who received four nominations for “This Land” (Best Video, Best Rock Song, Best Rock Performance, Best Blues Song), to Jack Antonoff for Best Producer, and to Vampire Weekend for their nominations for Father of the Bride including Album of the Year and Best Alternative Album. Read our classic interview with Gary and keep an eye out for our upcoming interview with Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig. 

"I pretty much knew from day one that I needed a few things for my arsenal," Clark told Epiphone.com. "The Epiphone Casino is the one that always stood out...and then finally I scrapped up some change and got one and the Casino changed my life. I knew that was what I needed to have. I had my eyes on it before I even really got familiar with it. And it just kind of stuck. I'm good with that. It's cool to have a Blak & Blu guitar, do you know what I mean? To have the guitar I've always wanted and to be able to customize it--"what if it was this color?"--it's surreal to see it all happen."
