OT: Derek Trucks interview - a must read IMHO

This is one of the best interviews with a musician I've read in ages. Lots of historical/musical info regarding the Allman Brothers Band, Clapton, blues, jazz, etc. Listening to the Tedeschi Trucks covers of the "Layla" album I remembered how I wore out a copy of the album when it first came out. I haven't listened to "Layla" for a long while, having lost interest in Clapton years ago, but I will throw it on the hi-fi this weekend 'cause the album is far more than Clapton. It's the beauty of all those musicians working it together. Trucks interview also brought back to mind Duane Allman and Boz Scaggs dueling on guitars on "Loan Me A Dime" on Scaggs first solo album which is superb. Trucks also notes "Indianola Mississippi Seeds" by B.B. King which, IMHO, is a must have album. King's backup band on it includes Leon Russell, Carole King, Joe Walsh. A number of cuts from this album weave their way through my ongoing music mix.

Some people may not think much of Clapton but Derek is obviously a fan.

When the ABB was on fire, as evidenced in the show/Clapton link above, they were hot as could be. I caught them a few times when Betts was still in the band (after Duane had passed) and later with Haynes and Trucks. Great shows.

I saw them when they recorded Live At the Fillmore (although I wasn't at the historic all night show). They actually opened for Johnny Winter but Johnny opened on Saturday to give them space to record. Saw them many times after that including the final Beacon show which ended at like 2AM.

The Tedeschi Trucks Band version of "Layla & Other Assorted Love Songs" is outstanding. I'm not a Phish fan but didn't mind Trey Anastasio on this. The material has a lot to do with that.
