interview: Albert Lee

Tune into WMSE to hear DJ Jeff Joy chat with the talented Albert Lee before he returns to Anodyne on Bruce for what is sure to be another great show!

“The greatest guitarist in the world.”- Eric Clapton  
“Albert is in every sense of the word, a genuine guitar wizard”.-  Earl Scruggs
“When Saint Peter asks me to chronicle my time down here on earth, I’ll be able to say – with pride if that’s allowed – that for a while I played rhythm guitar in a band with Albert Lee.”- Emmylou Harris
The Albert Lee Band includes John Thomas, aka  “J.T’, on keyboards. J.T.’s musical resume includes 23 years with Bruce Hornsby, who graciously called John “the greatest keyboard player in the band.” Emmylou Harris, Don Henley, Sparks, Tracy Chapman and a host of other have called upon John’s gifts. Bass playerWill MacGregor’s credits are a testament to his wide-ranging talents, having worked with the likes of the Pretenders, Pat Boone, Exene Cervanka, and more. Jason Smith brings both the subtlety of jazz and pounding pulse of rock to his drum stylings. Among his many credits: his jazz trio released the celebrated “Tipping Point” and “Think Like This” CD’s , and on the rock side Jason toured with Five For Fighting, supporting the “America Town” CD with it’s smash single “Superman (It’s Not Easy)”
