The Skinny: Check out this awesome short documentary that New York based alternative/rock band The Young Presidents shot while in the studio. The band, who worked with Rob Fraboni (Rolling Stones, Bob Marley) and Corey Glover of Living Colour, was recording two songs for their upcoming album in the same studio where Beastie Boys recorded Sabotage. The group is led by Mitchell Kaneff, who is also the author of “Taking Over: Insider Tips from a Third Generation CEO.” His true passion lies in collecting guitars, of which he has many, and his band The Young Presidents (he plays bass). The guitarist in this band, Jake Hertzog is according to Guitar Player Magazine “one of the finest young guitar players on the scene.” His catalog of work includes WakeyWakey!, Nickelodeon’s Naked Brothers Band, a column in Guitar Player Magazine and his own jazz trio.
