I-95 Drive Home Mystery Artist [VIDEO]
Tonight’s mystery artist has performed with a one of the best know classic rock bands of all time for 37 years and when he is not touring he is a tree farmer with 4000 acres in Georgia. Think you know who he is or who he plays for??
I found the story of this interesting piano player in Bloomberg. And although you may not think is him as an official 'Rolling Stone', Chuck Leavell has been backing them on piano and helping them with arrangements for 37 years and will be out with them on tour again this year. Chuck's opinion is that the band sounds better than ever. The article says that his rehearsals with the Stones will start up in March. Along with spending many hours in the woods trimming trees and managing his acreage he has also taken out time to play with some of the greats like Allman Brothers, Eric Clapton and David Gilmour. Now that is cool.
Here they are with tonight's featured song.
Here is more about Chuck.
