Rob McNelley Invites Us To Dick 50's "Late Show"
Here's a new April 2010 interview with guitarist/vocalsit Rob McNelley of the band Dick 50. Dick 50 is a cool story, in that they've been Delbert McClinton's backing band for a long time, gaining a reputation as one of the most diverse, hard working side units in the business. Now, they've branched out to release the debut disc "Late Show." The CD is an eclectic fusion of blues, rock, and soul, and should do well within the roots genre. McNelley talks about the inception of the new CD, as well as the recording and writing process behind it - it sounds like it was truly a great experience to be a part of. He also talks about Dick 50's time with Delbert McClinton, and what it takes to back one of roots music's best frontmen. Rob, in addition to a member of Dick 50, is also a Nashville session musician, currently heard on Lady Antebellum's latest material. He talks about his musical life in Nashville as well in this interview. Dick 50 is still going strong with McClinton, but Rob says they're planning some shows this summer, and you can pick up a copy of "Late Show" on Itunes or also via this link from Amazon.com. Do check out the record - if you're a fan of Delbert's, you wont be disappointed. This record will appeal to a broad spectrum of rock/soul/blues fans. Thanks to Rob for the chat - best of luck with the CD!
