Great backing musicians! The teaser track reminds me a bit of The Band, maybe crossed with Allmans or other southern swamp blues rock.

What are your tips on being a sideman thats allowed you to comfortably jump between different songwriters?


I learned in the Heartbreakers and its what I learned from my favorite bands The Beatles, The Rolling Stones you play the song. If it makes you look good, great. But the most important thing is for it to enhance the song, and thats what youre supposed to do when you play anything. Youre supposed to play for the song and not yourself.

Just listened to 'You Should Be So Lucky' ... is this serious? The Monkees were better...

I give Benmont props for singing his own songs.


Sure, I'll give him props. Props are free. Not buying the record, though. But there are a bazillion TPHB fans out there and if only 1% of them buy it, he's doing pretty well.
