He's one of the greatest guitar players ever, yet you've probably never even heard his name.  

Pat Travers should be a household name but he was much better at being a musician than greasing the right wheels at the record company.

But that wasn't going to stop him. 

Not only is music his passion, he's also embraced technology and learned to bypass the recording industry. He's just out with a new album called "Blues on Fire."

Pat looks back and recalls what it was like to be first learning to play guitar when future iconic guitar players were around, releasing their first albums and touring, including Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page and Carlos Santana.

Pat describes how listening to Hendrix changed his life forever and how he was able to see Jimi in concert as a young teenager in Canada. Wait until you hear how he almost got away from the concert with Jimi's guitar. 

Plus, find out how today he uses Facebook to connect with fans all across the world, even inviting some out to dinner with him and the band.
