Guitar Wizard

Great interview - who doesn't remember the dynamite rockin song Black Betty? This guy is amazing on guitar. It's interesting to hear how his journey has taken him from being a child influenced by familial roots listening to classical music, mastering the guitar (to be a chick magnet) entering the world of rock and now playing bass for the Panama City Pops Orchestra. Who knows where life will take them? Looking forward to hearing Part 2.
