Blues Rocker Kenny Wayne Shepherd on The Pete and Doug Show [AUDIO VIDEO]
When someone mentions modern day blues guitarists, few forget to add Kenny Wayne Shepherd into that conversation. Still barely in his 30’s, KWS has forged a sound that captures the legendary blues-men of the 60’s and 70’s with modern lyrical emotion. Remember the first time you heard that riff in Blue on Black? Or the quick trigger fretboard work on In 2 Deep? What is shock or amazement striking you with the discovery that this was a young blues master of only 19 years old?
Kenny Wayne has had an amazing career and he talked with us this morning on The Pete & Doug Show. He told us about his influential meeting with legendary blues-rocker Stevie Ray Vaughn when he was just 7 years old. A meeting that changed the direction of his life.
