Topics include a sacrifice, LAPD, the blue bikes, a close call, a brunch, school reopening, a body condom, train hopping, “The Happiest Man in the World,” the hierarchy of needs, family life, chart success, identity, circus life, making the band, stage poise, the Squirrel Nut Zippers, Jimbo Mathis, an airport incident, the aftermath, sobriety, healing, formative experiences, surrender, back to work, transcendence, a song commission, a new record, the future of the music biz, and much more.

TMP150 Luther Dickinson: North Mississippi Allstars

By the time the North Mississippi Allstars guitarist and singer started playing with Hill Country masters R.L. Burnside and Othar Turner, he’d already received a firm grounding in roots music at the knee of his record producer and piano player father, Jim Dickinson (Big Star, Ry Cooder, Bob Dylan). Luther’s traveled the world spreading the blues rock gospel, but after growing up in the Memphis mayhem of the Mudboy & the Neutrons orbit, the Troubled Men Podcast should feel like a return to the briar patch. Topics include the 150th episode, a vaccine, Holy Week, a letter of reference, the Rolling Stones at Muscle Shoals, the Dixie Fliers, Bill Eggleston, Pat Rainer, “Big Star 3rd,” “Sugar Ditch Revisited,” open tuning, the Mingus bio, a father’s advice, first demos, Roland Janes, the Hodges brothers, ambition, the Black Crows, transcendence, conflict, the Allmans on acid, the Sons of Mudboy, a memorial recording session, and much more.
