Here is the first installment of Dr Lawing's extensive interview with Elliott Randall.
In this episode, Elliott discusses his formative years on guitar and his early professional history including: The Druids of Stonehenge, Seatrain, Randall's Island and his first two solo albums, and his early recording with Steely Dan.
Dr. Lawing had the opportunity last weekend to spend some time with Elliott Randall, Steely Dan's premier guitarist among many other things. In the coming weeks we'll be publishing a series of episodes featuring an extensive interview as well as demos of some of Elliott's guitars, including the famous #1.
In related news, we were also able to close the loop with Robbie Blunt, best known for his work on the first three Robert Plant albums, and we are planning (technology willing) to do a remote interview with him in the very near future.
