If you think Ace is playing the guitar think about every other story he has ever told. Would his crappy parents have bought him a guitar? Would he have time between whacking off to the raft box to master an instrument?

Adam's a lot of things, but a musician is sadly not one of them.
Friday, 1/23/2015 at 6:44 PM EST
Kind of cool to hear Adam rocking out - he's actually a pretty good musician. Not my favorite episode though, too much jamming and ass kissing between Adam and John
Sunday, 6/8/2014 at 11:09 PM EDT
This is def not ace rockolla on the axe. I think everyone is being sarcastic referring to him as humble because he's obviously preening. Love the mix if Adam and Drew and John. He should have been a third guest like DAG or Andy Dick.

theater of the mind, 'good radio'

@rawdfarva: It's a mix of MxPx's "Sometimes You Have to Ask Yourself" and "Destroyed by You."
Sunday, 2/16/2014 at 12:47 AM EST
anyone know the name of the song at the very beginning on the recording?
Tuesday, 10/11/2011 at 1:20 PM EDT
First mention of Minka on the show around 1:13:00
Monday, 8/22/2011 at 12:51 PM EDT
Go to 1:19:00 on the 1999-11-08 (Dave Navarro) show and listen for about 12 seconds. Basically confirmation that Adam's guitar playing is all a gag.
Thursday, 8/18/2011 at 5:14 PM EDT
at 1:06:00 adam jokes about the guitar playing. drew: "oh shut up..."
Thursday, 8/18/2011 at 3:20 PM EDT
There's more "real or fake?" discussion on the 1998-06-28 John Popper show page, but it wasn't them. I've heard Adam say a few times over the years that he doesn't play guitar.
Thursday, 8/18/2011 at 2:31 PM EDT
I'd be very humble if I didn't want people to know I wasn't playing after a very nice set.

Good episode, as always.
Friday, 3/11/2011 at 2:19 PM EST
Love Jon Popper - he is a wonderful guest. It was obvious to me that Adam was faking the guitar in this episode but others I really thought Adam/Drew were actually jamming. Does anyone else know if any of those were real? I suspect Drew tickling the ivories was but whooooooooo knows? I feel kind of sad/disillusioned now but appreciate the joke.
Tuesday, 9/28/2010 at 11:29 PM EDT
Very good show. My favorite so far, and I have listened to a ton. Popper is the best guest i have heard. Whether or not it was actually Adam on the guitar is not so important to me, cause the music was good regardless. (I suspect it was not him, btw)
Thursday, 8/5/2010 at 4:52 PM EDT
I am very impressed, I listen to the show the night before this and this he was just yapping as usual but he's actually a real decent guitar player. This kind of changed my view of the man that is Adam "Ace" Carolla. That arpeggio when they were doing improv over the track was especially impressive.

And I assure you, it is someone playing the guitar in studio for those who are doubting it and I doubt that it's someone other than Adam since he's quite humble about it. If it wasn't him he would be going on about being a God, don't you think? :)

It was a joke where the other band members were playing and they pretended it was Adam and Drew. Although Adam supposedly played the trumpet at a Save Ferris concert. I've been trying to get a video and audio bootleg of that show but the two people haven't gotten back to me in a while.

I've always wondered... is this really Adam on guitar?
Uh Oh...
