This one’s emotional: Paul’s first recording as a session player was with Lenny White, and the stories only get better from here: Working with George Benson, Patrice Rushen, Wah Wah Watson, Quincy Jones, Herbie Hancock, Stanley Clarke, George Duke, BB King, Billy Preston, Stan Getz, Aretha Franklin, Joe Williams, Ray Parker Jr., Whitney Houston, Arturo Sandoval… Paul’s top 3 sessions & top 3 live performances, growing up in South Central LA and the incredible support and sacrifices his parents made for him, favorite guitars… dealing with the loss of his mom & others close to him… Disneyland, Richard Pryor, stupidity, and loads more. A TON of fun, love, and interesting stories all wrapped into one awesome conversation
