What would Benny Goodman’s drummer want with me?

Don Airey spoke to the Hawai’i Public Radio for their Off The Road series of interviews.

In today’s feature, Don takes us back to the beginning of the pandemic for a scary episode from the earliest days of the crisis. He also details how the band decided to do an all-covers album, and shares a little about the recording and song selection, which includes music from Led Zeppelin, Spencer Davis Group, Booker T. and the M.G.’s, Jeff Beck, The Allman Brothers Band, Little Feat and many others.

    Quite a delightful chat with Don.
    What a book that man could write !
    Best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a much better 2022 than the past two years.
    Be well, everyone.

    Great interview and questions. The new album is really good, though no version of Shapes of Things can ever match that of Gary Moore’s.
