Peppino D’Agostino Interview – Everyone Loves Guitar

One of the most well-traveled fingerstyle acoustic guitarists, Peppino has played with Tommy Emmanuel, Leo Kottke, Sergio Assad, Larry Carlton, Eric Johnson, and more. Originally from Sicily, he also co-wrote a #1 song in Italy

Peppino talks about what made him move to America… some tough times he had when he first got here, including all the different kinds of non-music jobs he held, just to make ends meet… feelings of loneliness he encountered as a child because he parents were against him playing guitar, and how he overcame them… cool story about meeting Tony Bennett, his 84 year old mom, forgiveness and more. GREAT interview, very cool guy:
