Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge, Slash), Brad Whitford (Aerosmith), Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Black Country Communion), Joe Bonnamassa (Black Country Communion) and Steve Morse (Deep Purple) are among the musicians who will appear on the forthcoming tribute album to late Deep Purple guitarist Tommy Bolin.
Journalist and "Touched by Magic: The Tommy Bolin Story" book author Greg Prato recently spoke to the CD's producer, Greg Hampton, about the forthcoming release. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below:
Q: How did the idea of the Tommy Bolin tribute CD come up?
Greg Hampton: Warren Haynes and I starting talking about it in 2008. He seemed the best choice to co-produce since he also knows and loves Tommy's music, and we have been for many years and he is also one of the greatest guitarists/musicians of the last 25 years to emerge… he is highly respected around the world.
Q: Who's on the Bolin tribute CD?
Greg Hampton: Myles Kennedy, Warren Haynes, Brad Whitford,Glenn Hughes, Joe Bonnamassa, Peter Frampton, Steve Lukather,Steve Morse, Nels Cline, John Scofield, and quite a few other surprises!
