Adam Zuckerman: A Classic Music Lover
by Jenay Ross

During GRAMMY Camp®’s field trip day (aka “Day of Freedom”), I found time to sit down and interview guitarist Adam Zuckerman. Adam, a 16-year-old Santa Monica native, became interested in music when his parents introduced him to classic rock and classical music. Today, some of his favorite artists include Rachmaninov, Tchaikovsky, Mahler, Jeff Beck, and Jimi Hendrix.

Besides playing his ESP Eclipse, he plays piano and violin. In the future, Adam would like to perform, compose, or work in any field of the music industry. "In reality I'd like to do anything in the music business," he says. Though he doesn’t go to as many shows as he would like, the last one he went to was a classical concert at the Disney Concert Hall in downtown LA.

Right now at camp, Adam is busy with his newly formed combo, G-Unit. “It’s fun. It’s like the ideal, playing anything you want,” he says about working with G-Unit. He finds it very easy to work with each of his band mates. Everyday the combo is exposed to a new style varying from rock to funk. "It's cool to be immersed in this music [camp] where I can play for a long time."
