Jim Cregan Interview – Rod Stewart, Katie Melua, Bernie Taupin – Everyone Loves Guitar

 

 

Jim Cregan’s had a solo career in the UK with a number one hit single, and was also Rod Stewart’s lead guitarist & band leader for 18 years, co-writing 30 songs with him. Played one of the greatest guitar solos, on 1977’s “I Was Only Joking.” Much more than a great conversation, this was a Masterclass in guitar playing, getting along with people, and being a music director!

One cool story after another, including how he got the gig with Rod Stewart… jamming with Frank Zappa, Howlin’ Wolf, Hubert Sumlin’, Ron Wood, Kenny Jones & Rod… drunk Joe Cocker late night in the recording studio… building tension in a song, and SO much more. INCREDIBLY cool & upbeat:
