Guitarist Dave Navarro (JANE'S ADDICTION, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, THE PANIC CHANNEL), who hosts his own online TV show called "Spread TV" on ManiaTV.com, recently sat down with legendary axeman George Lynch (DOKKEN, LYNCH MOB) for an interview and a lesson in tapping. The program, which originally aired on July 31, can be viewed below.Speaking to Spinner.com back in June 2007, Navarro explained what prompted his show. "It came from a combination of places: Going back and looking at 'Playboy After Dark', where Hugh Hefner hosted parties that were on television and he had different friends and artists hanging around, having cocktails and sharing stories," he said. "It was a party environment but a very loose structure. And I've always admired that way of presenting a show. Then, when I was a guest on Tom Green's Internet show, I was introduced to the ability of having content streaming live on the Internet. That was really inspiring just on a technological level. So me and my partner, Todd Newman, got together and started talking with the people over at ManiaTV.com and kind of created this combination of the two schools — a talk show meets 'Playboy After Dark'." Asked how he is enjoying being on the other side, as the interviewer, Navarro said, "It's a lot of fun. The good news is I've decided that I don't want to be the guy who approaches people when they're out enjoying themselves. It's not comfortable for me — I hate it when it's done to me. The idea is that if people want to be a part of the evening and they want to come down, it's a live environment, there's cocktails being served, waitresses, music — it's a real loose forum. And as far as being an interviewer, I don't walk in with a list of questions, I don't try and dig up gossip, and I don't try and get in areas people don't want to talk about. It's more of a loose conversation as it flows." Interview:
