RED YOUNG ON THE ROAD
Our great Artist RED YOUNG has a cool story-here it is in his own words:
“During SXSW in March, I got a call from Steve Berlin, who just produced Marcia Ball’s latest with me on B3, asking if I was open Thursday night. I said what you got? “SXSW Auditorium Shores playing with Los Lobos” they were headlining. David Hidalgo was someplace else and they needed to fill out the band. I said I’ll be there. What are we playing? “You’ll hear it…” Never met Cesar Rojas or any of the other guys and only met Cesar just before we went onstage. Two numbers go by and on the third Cesar gave me a solo. Next thing I knew I’m soloing on every song and we even did Oye Como Va, She’s About A Mover, La Bamba (with a middle section of Good Lovin’) and many other tunes. Many thousands of screaming appreciative fans. I brought my XK5 and used my 142 leslie. It Screamed! Many heads turned at the sound and many questions ensued from various keyboard players. And Cesar wanted my number…
In this business you never know where and when that next call will come from.
Thanks Red! They got the right guy!!
