Peter White Interview: “If Al Stewart didn’t hand me that guitar, my whole life would be different”

On this Peter White Interview: Great story of how Peter, who grew up without a phone at home, wound up touring the world many times over – as a sideman with Al Stewart, and as a solo artist. How his brother burned down their bedroom and wound up starting Peter’s love for acoustic guitar… Important lessons learned from working with Alan Parsons & Earl Klugh, meeting Jimmy Page & Paul McCartney, working at Abbey Road Studios, bringing joy to others, feeling more comfortable with yourself, why “Don’t think, just play” should be every musician’s mantra. AWESOME convo with a kind and lovely artist

Peter White played guitar and keyboards with Al Stewart, and co wrote a couple of Al’s hits over a 20 year period, opening for Linda Ronstadt, Billy Joel and Queen. He then launched a successful solo career, releasing over a dozen LPs and playing guitar as a side man on dozens of other records. He’s toured the world many times over and was named Best Guitarist at the National Smooth Jazz Awards, 4 years in a row.
