MetroSeeker.com Interview with Kenny Olson

Kenny Olson Producing

Meet Kenny Olson, the best guitarist you’ve never heard of. You probably heard Kenny and didn’t even realize it. Kenny has played with Kid Rock, Aerosmith, Metallica, Billy Gibbons, Sheryl Crow, and Les Paul, among others.

While you may not have heard of him, his peers definitely have. Keith Richards says this multi-platinum guitarist is “one of the best rock guitarists on the scene right now.”

Kenny started a band, The Kenny Olson Cartel, which is an an ass-kicking entity in its own right. “That’s my high,” Olson says. “I belong out there playing.” But the studio is another home, and there will be more where Kenny Olson Cartel came from. The guitarist says he has enough material “for a few more albums at least,” with more coming seemingly every day, which means the Cartel is well stocked for a loud ‘n’ proud future.

“What I like about this situation is nothing can stop it,” Olson gushes. “As long as I’m alive and kicking, I can keep the Kenny Olson Cartel going and keep the music coming.”

In this candid interview, Kenny talked to us about his career, music, and life in Nashville, where he’s currently alive and kicking.
