Description

A "slide guitar potentate of unparalleled proportions", Sonny's slide work is known far and wide for his signature technique. As evidenced by his influential work with John Hiatt, Landreth's amazing playing always serves the song first. Eric Clapton says, “Sonny Landreth is probably the most underestimated musician on the planet, and also probably one of the most advanced.” His own albums have featured Mr. Clapton, along with Eric Johnson, Vince Gill, and others. He tells Greg about his journey from Chet Atkins to Delta Blues and beyond in today's gristle-filled conversation.
