Ep. 45 - AL KOOPER

On this episode of The It's Only Rock And Roll Podcast, we feature true rock royalty – producer, session musician, A&R man, and omnipresent figure throughout the rock era, AL KOOPER. We discuss a career that began at age 15 playing guitar with The Royal Teens (“Short, Shorts”), and later included playing Hammond on Bob Dylan's “Like A Rolling Stone”, French Horn & organ on The Rolling Stones “You Can't Always Get What You Want”, working extensively with guitar legend Mike Bloomfield, founding one of rock's first commercially successful horn-based bands Blood Sweat & Tears, discovering and producing Southern powerhouse Lynyrd Skynyrd, and writing the candid memoir “Backstage Passes & Backstabbing Bastards”.
