Couple days ago I posted an audio clip from an interview I did with one of my fave all-time guitarists, Roy Buchanan.

That got me thinkin’ that maybe I should post another audio clip from an interview I did with another one of my fave all-time guitarists, Albert King.

When the blues legend was heading to Vancouver for a show at the PNE back in 1990 I gave him a call.
