Hey everybody:

Just a heads up: this Saturday, 12/19/20, I will be going live with one of the most important videos I've released since I began my YouTube odyssey thirteen years ago.

It's a long and fascinating Zoom interview, conducted yesterday, with a major blues harmonica player whose name you all know.

Just watched "A Conversation with Charlie Musselwhite".
That hearty stew was wonderfully filling while creating great anticipation of the next stew day.

That was a great interview Adam. I have known Charlie for over 40 years. I use to hang around him and listen to stories he told me. I heard some new ones on your interview. Thanks for doing it. Walter

Thanks so much for posting that Adam, Charlie is one of the few great harp players I've managed to see when he came to Australia, what must be 20 years ago now. to hear his history was really interesting, especially that he was so close to Carey Bell. Great interview, thank you to both of you

Long time ago I interviewed Musselwhite for a magazine here in Brasil, he was such a gentleman. He's one who deserves a biography for sure.
Adam, you'd convince him to write down his memories, it coul be your next project.

Back in 2008 I was living in London and saw an advert that some blues dude was playing at the 100 Club on Oxford Street - the basement dive bar where the Sex Pistols started. Seemed like an odd venue for a blues act, but evidently his band had visa problems and he was making the best of it. Damn I’m glad I went! Not only was it a terrific show - he played the harmonica like a soldier of fortune and sounded like he’d paid the price - but from having seen Charlie I decided that day that I wanted to learn how to play harmonica. Here’s the review

After seeing Charlie with his long hair, cowboy boots and leather jacket I also decided that that’s what I wanted to look like when I got old - he’s a super cool cat. Thanks for posting the interview Adam! Charlie knows stuff that will be lost forever if it doesn’t get documented.

Thanks, everybody. I'm glad you enjoyed this interview as much as I enjoyed conducting and editing it.

It was Isaac Ullah, btw, who convinced me that I should take the time to learn the new version of iTunes. Man, was he ever right! It's so much easier to add images on top of the conversation.

Great interview-----Great person to interview.

Talked to him a couple times on "Blues Cruise".
He would always ask Where u from? R u havin fun? He was as interested in u, as u were with him.

I love the way he pass's off to guitar player 0r keyboard. This casual "wave of hand "
that said:
Im glad in yr in my band, yr really good, NOW GET SOME. They'd look back at him after a 12 bar go round or 2 and he'd give the same gracious wave saying: No I want to hear more.

He's the real deal--So r u Adam -been to Yr west coast deal, with R. Shellist and Hill Country.

Great interview--------heres S terry song mentioned
