I was walking around Carson Street yesterday taking pictures when I stumbled into Pittsburgh Guitars. Mike was in there noodling around with bandmate Dirk Miller. I asked him if I could take a few shots. No problem. Extremely nice dude. I loved the Root back when they started. I actually saw one of their first shows in the TINY corner at Jack’s Back Room! Whether you dig them or not, it’s hard to argue that they are one of a handful of bands that actually made a name for themselves outside the city line.
