Sonny Landreth: "How Not to Sound Awful"
Sonny Landreth and his slide guitar have flown a million miles to entertain audiences around the world — and he's got the card from his airline to prove it. So if you haven't yet seen Landreth in concert, whose fault is that?
This week, Music Inside Out travels to Lafayette, Louisiana to hear the great Landreth play.
Bonnie Raitt, John Hiatt, Mark Knopfler, Jimmy Buffett, Johnny Winter and Eric Clapton are among his fans. And after hearing our interview, you'll be a fan too.
During the interview, Sonny tells Gwen that when he first picked up a guitar, with faithful Rex at his side, his goal was "not to sound awful." Now that he's a monster on his instrument, he's helping a new generation of beginning guitarists with master class sessions on his website. (Bring your own dog.)
