On this Glenn Worf interview: His perseverance and work ethic and how it took him WAY beyond where he imagined… Quitting college and moving to Nashville because, “You have to be willing to fail to get better…” Early struggles trying to get his session career going, working with Kevin Welch, Bob Seger, Patti Griffin (very cool story), Buddy Guy & Mark Knopfler… Coping with a significant health issue his wife has, “perfect plumb,” hearing both sides of the story, seeing the beauty in as much as you can, and more. Very kind and open, lovely story
