IMMEDIATE FAMILY WEEK!
Waddy Wachtel Picks The Essential Keith Richards
Waddy Wachtel shares his essential Keith Richards songs. As a young guitarist, Waddy identified with the sounds of early Rolling Stones on record and on stage. And through his career in the 70s as Waddy was working with Zevon, Ronstadt, and dozens more, he connected with The Stones and became a friend of Keith’s. Then one day, he got a call – THAT call from Keith. Keith said “I’m forming a band and you’re in it.” Keith could have invited any guitarist in the world to play by his side and he chose Waddy. What does that mean to Waddy? He shares his journey as it relates to the Stones discography, what he loves about their songs, and his musical partnership and friendship with Keith. We also take a few brief detours into Frank Zappa, Don Everly, Lenny Bruce, Warren Zevon, and so much more.
Long-time friends and musical collaborators Danny Kortchmar, Russ Kunkel, Waddy Wachtel, Steve Postell, and Leland Sklar have come together to form The Immediate Family. Tune in this week on Pods & Sods as they each share memories of their careers, pick the essential songs from some of their favorite colleagues, talk about their new album, and much more!
