Reggie Hamilton Interview – Chris Botti, Stanley Clarke, Warren Zevon – Everyone Loves Guitar

Reggie started playing at 11 and gigging professionally shortly after. He has toured or recorded with Seal, Eros Ramazzotti, Babyface, Queen Latifah, Billy Childs, Christina Aguilera, Ricky Martin, Bette Midler, George Duke, Whitney Houston, Stanley Clarke, David Lynch, John Mellencamp, Warren Zevon, Mariah Carey, Tina Turner, Tiziano Ferro, Boyz II Men, Johnny Hallyday, Freeflight, and many others.

This guy is totally cool, and had tons of great stories: Studying with Kim Clarke, living on his own at age 12, making great money gigging 6 nights a week as a teenager, why he moved to LA… working with Seal, Queen Latifah, Stanley Clarke, Better Midler, Freddy Hubbard… absolute LOUDEST guitarist he’s ever heard (you’ll never guess who), dark days he managed to get through, a beautiful philosophy by John Coltrane, Elmhurst, a Michael Jackson nightmare, tons of jazz history, and of course, NYC Pizza. Reggie  kept shit very real, this is a MUST listen:
