Derek Trucks talks about international audiences, Howlin’ Wolf, Hendrix, Clapton, Santana, John Lee Hooker, Duane Allman, Coltrane, and even classical music.
Here is audio from my feature interview with Derek for All About Jazz.
Susan shares stories from her amazing career: meeting Johnny Cash as a child, hanging out in Willie Nelson’s bus with him and Les Paul, her tears when listening to Eric Clapton rehearsing with Derek Trucks, sitting on BB King’s lap, and much more!
The 2010 launch of the Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi Band brought together two of the brightest talents on the contemporary music scene.
This interview took place just after Susan and Derek announced the launch of their new band and their intention to take some time off. I was so grateful that she made an exception and granted me this interview during her down time.
