Show Notes

From the guitar player’s many years with Dr. John, Anders Osborne, and Johnny Sansone, and his recording work with Klaus Voormann and Rickie Lee Jones, to sessions for film and TV and his own solo records, John is known as someone who goes all out for the music. He’s come a long way from the prairies of Montana to the balmy environs of New Orleans. It’s all seemingly led him to this moment in the Ring Room with the Troubled Men. Some things are worth working for.
