#153 – Lukas Nelson – Wasted

Lukas Nelson, the son of country music legend Willie Nelson, is stepping out of the shadow of his famous father, due in large part to his energetic live shows.  His band, Promise of the Real, rocked over 200 dates in 2011 alone.  They’ve shared the stage with the likes of Dave Matthews and B.B. King.  Despite the incessant touring, Nelson found time to write and record the band’s second full-length, Wasted.  Icon Fetch talks with Lukas Nelson about getting inspiration from both Neil Young and Jimi Hendrix for the new record, and helping his dad record his new CD, called Heroes.
