The discussion included:
– Being a ska/reggae/rock out of Birmingham, England (Robert Plant, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Moody Blues)
– How people with light skin and dark skin found common ground
– his favorite covers of English Beat songs
– Two absolute guitar legends in music history calling him on a Saturday afternoon trying to figure out to play “Save It For Later”. This is an excellent story.
– and I got to talk to Dave about the absolute goosebump moment in “Tenderness” by General Tenderness.
My wife got to join me on this one as well and you can hear her a few times.
