Troubled Men Podcast
TMP144 Jason Ricci: Mooncat Rising
Widely considered one of the top harmonica players in the world, the singer and songwriter has been making records, winning awards, and thrilling audiences since he was a teenager. Ricci spent time studying and playing with blues legends like James Cotton, Charlie Musselwhite, Johnny Winter, R.L. Burnside, and Howard Levy, and would come to be accepted by them as a peer. When it comes to hard living, Jason checks a lot of boxes: drugs, prison, and sexual confusion, to name a few. Now he can add the Troubled Men Podcast to the list.
Topics include a deep freeze, Mardi Gras, rolling blackouts, Lent, Larry Flynt RIP, a guest recording, a new number, skate punk roots, flaka, a first teacher, teen trouble, “The Last Stop,” Idaho, Pat Ramsey in Memphis, living with the Kimbrough family, the N. Mississippi Hill Country, Fat Possum Records, Florida rehab, a 12-year sentence, Blues Music Awards, female players, Paul Butterfield, a low point, coming out, sobriety, marriage to Kaitlin Dibble, a YouTube powerhouse, a new mindset, and much more.
