Tim Armstrong recently sat down with Guitar Center’s host Nic Harcourt for an exclusive podcast.
In the hour-long session, Armstrong opens up about his legendary punk rock career with bands such as Operation Ivy, Rancid and The Transplants, and he even performs a few acoustic gems from his prolific catalog.
In addition, Armstrong and his signature Gretsch were also featured in the March edition of the Guitar Center newsletter, which you can sign up for here.
Rancid is currently celebrating its 20th anniversary with a few tour dates on the books. Visit their official website for more information, and check out Guitar Center’s contest to win an Armstrong prize pack – including one of his signature Gretsch models – here.
