Andrew Connor talks music, life, and the merits of the cover band

It’s a rainy day in Kansas City, and Andrew Connor is at work, sending back defective guitars to vendors for Musician’s Friend. It’s hard to imagine Connor having anything to do with defective gear; the longtime local musician has had his hand in some of the area’s most loved bands over the past decade. Fellow musicians quote him as one of the best songwriters the city has to offer. And yet, the down-to-earth, laid-back guitarist has only one thing to say about why he writes music: “I can’t help it. It’s the thing I love.”
