The old "mental illness goes hand-in-hand with creative genius" tortured-artist idea has reared its head again in the public consciousness this week. People put this to me all the time, as I'm pretty open about my chronic bipolar.

The idea that being ill helps *anything* really is kinda silly. It makes a lot of simple things a needless struggle. And stops me doing some things at all.

I'll...

Manchester. It was packed, so hot my fingers were sliding in the sweat, and everything I gave to the crowd I got back ten times over. Overwhelming. After the gig a bouncer got intense with me and my friends, I think he was having a bad day.* I had so much residual gig-love in me, I somehow reduced his rage to a hug. Surreal.

Some nights are just ALIVE.

I'm from Blackpool, which is basically like a rainy, cold Las Vegas. (It's also known as The Glasgow Riviera.) I cut my teeth playing my early gigs in the pubs and clubs of Blackpool, and the drunken hordes would encourage me by shouting things at me as I played. Like "Play something we know!" Or "Play something YOU know!" which is pretty offensive, frankly. But what would really chill my...

What do you call your guitar? Naming it brings you closer together. After all, sometimes it's your only friend.

I tell my guitar love story to George Lowden. Mine are called Wilma (for Cpt. Wilma Deering, spaceship pilot), Betty (for my grandmother and for being another Wilma's best friend), and now my Signature Model Lowden, Rocky (because it's not about how hard you can hit, it's how hard...

Kinda pretty much loved getting back on stage this weekend. I opened with a new song, Cocoon, which is about becoming a father, which is the reason I've been away, so it seemed fitting. Turns out I love playing it, which is also fitting. If you wanna hear it and some other new songs, come see me on the road in the UK, starting in 3 weeks.

Everyone involved in Ards Guitar Festival is awesome,...

Guy Takes His Guitar Back To The Factory. What He Did Will Astound You

LOL etc. Soooooo anyway.... I flew my signature model guitar over to the Lowden workshop, we filmed some video. Here I'm playing Passionflower, but I turned off the overdrive pedal so you can really hear the TONE. #tone

Tab for this song (with full written notes explaining every technique) is on my site. Don't be afraid.

Devastated at the passing of my beloved friend Jonno. People often ask me "How do you get gigs when you're starting out? There's nowhere I can play in my city." Well, gigs don't just appear. They're not there, waiting for you to step on stage. You make them. Yourself. That's what Jonathan Gollow did.

A musician and bone-deep music fan himself, when Jonno went to live on the Isle Of Man, he...

A guitarist's dream vacation. This July, come spend a week on an Austrian Alp overlooking a crystalline mountain lake, and take guitar classes with me, Thomas Leeb, Stuart Ryan and more. It's more than just a guitar camp: Friendships formed on the mountain seem to last a lifetime. I'm so grateful and excited that I get to be a part of it again. Space is highly limited, book your place at [...

Support Artists Wanted...

I've decided to throw open the support slots for this Spring's gigs to local musicians. I know how hard it is to get on good shows in your own city, because so many are sewn up by national agencies, sometimes on a pay-to-play basis. FTS.

To apply:
1) Choose your closest city
2) Find the facebook Event: Search facebook for “jon gomm live in [city]”
3) On the Event...

Hope I can be on stage with my wife again one day soon.

Best friends, lovers, musicians, business partners, parents. Intertwined.

The stuff she puts up with living and working with a bipolar musician, the daring rescues she has performed: I would be dead in a ditch beside a highway in some far-flung country if not for her.
