I believe he was originally a very gifted and trusted guitar teacher to several of The Strokes guys. They brought him in on the very first day as a security measure in case I tried to pull any ego trip, "not listening" or other such behavior to these young musicians. He had a lot to say about guitar tone, pickup selection, modes for solos and often suggestions for EQ during the recording process. At first I was confused having another voice in the studio, especially on top of how vocal each band member really was during the process, about EVERYTHING! ---I certainly learned to love JP the Guru.
