and that ended up happening. It was the last
album that Chet made, this album of duets
with me—that was in 1996.
How do you define commercial music?
Well, there are two ways, I think. People
could say, “It’s commercial if radio will play
it.” I say it’s commercial if everybody from
your granddaughter to your grandfather likes
it… if people in general really like it, if it gets
to people out there.
Do you feel your audiences are children to
older people also?
Tommy Emmanuel’s Gearbox
Yes. My audiences are really broad. I’m
really grateful for that, because it’s really
great to inspire kids, and it’s great to be
inspired by people you meet. You know,
older people need a little excitement in
their lives, too, and they get a really good
time coming to my shows. They laugh and
they have a good time—I’m an entertainer
who plays the guitar, that’s what I am.
