The Bobby Womack Interview



The bravest man in the universe used to wake the morning and get his breakfast in bed but then realized its a lot more fun to cross 110th street with JJ Johnson and Stu Gardner.

My guest is one of the most prolific musicians in our countries history. He came of age with his brothers who were raised to take care of themselves. Go down to the lake and sleep out at night. Croon some lyrics that a woman's got to have and play hot rhythms with country and western tunes with his pops singing vocals.

The bravest man in the world has had to show this over and over again because bravery exists in the what have you done for me lately world that we dwell. Breezin' on blue tooths and cocaine addictions. The pacing that it takes for my guest to create. It's not a chop shop. How bout 9 years how bout 5 let it marinate like the hot licks of Gabor Szabo or the hippie laced Pearls of Janice Joplin.

My guest learned under Wilson Pickett and carried the torch with Sly Stone. His gospel tinged inflections blended with his RnB sensibilities and choppy blues riffs.

My guest learned on the bandstand be it the church circuits of the American Breadbasket or the Chitlin Circuit that produced the likes of Cannonball Adderley.

That's the way I feel about cha, Bobby Womack welcome to the JFS
