Our conversation with guitar great Albert Lee continues. He talks about his influences, how he began playing with Emmylou Harris, Eric Clapton, the Everly Brothers and Bill Wyman. He also talks about the emotional Concert For George which he took part in, last year’s Everly Brothers tribute at the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame, and playing with Spinal Tap.
Legendary guitarist Albert Lee has played with a diverse set of people – Emmylou Harris, Eric Clapton, the Everly Brothers and Bill Wyman, and that’s just scratching the surface. He’s also released over 20 solo albums, and was featured prominently in the Tribute to George Harrison concert DVD. All of this is testament to his versatility – from R&B, Rock, Rockabilly to Country – His latest project is certainly a labor of love – Guitar Heroes: Making History brings together four of the greatest living guitar slingers – James Burton, Amos Garrett, David Wilcox along with Lee, recorded live in Vancouver Island back in 2013. The results are a guitar fan’s dream come true.
