Pat's Latest Sirius Blues Interviews

Pictured is legendary, Multi-Grammy winning artist Taj Mahal, who came by Sirius to visit with Pat.

For over an hour they talked about the blues, and Taj performed many of his signiture songs, and made up a few on the spot as well!

Legendary Bluesman, and 2005 Inductee into The Rock'N'Roll Hall of Fame: Buddy Guy.
Buddy has his famous guitar in hand, and performs" live in the studio" during their nearly hour-long chat about Buddy's long, multi-award winning career. Lots of "inside stories", lots of laughs, and lots of great words from Buddy about his favorite radio station...Sirius Blues.
Buddy even makes up a song about his love of Sirius, of which he's been a subscriber since the beginning.

 

On Nov 4th, Dan Aykroyd visited Pat's Blues Show on Sirius 29 to celebrate his new book "Elwood's Blues - Interviews with The Blues Legends and Stars".
Some surprises were promised, and they sure were delivered, as Dan brought with him a band consisting of some pretty legendary players themselves, who proceeded to play live, for an hour that really turned into a party. It kicked off with Mose Allison singing a few of his signature tunes, Pat's visit with Dan, and a jam session including Guitar Greats Hubert Sumlin (Howlin' Wolf), Michael Hill (Michael Hill's Blues Mob), Bass player Jerry Jemmott (Aretha Franklin), David Maxwell (Freddie King) on Piano, and a Horn section which included Calvin Owens (B.B. King'), "Blue" Lou Marini (The Blues Brother's Band), Singer Bettye LaVette, and many more, (including a special "bonus" performance at the end)!

 

Pat pictured here with Vinny Pastore (formerly "Big Pussy" on The Sopranos), who aside from hosting "The Wiseguy Show" on Sirius 147 Wednesdays at 6PM Eastern - which Pat has been a guest on numerous times, co-hosted The Pat St.John Blues Show one evening. Pat said "he really knows his music!" Vinny said "Pat, now you're a made man!

Pat is pictured here with singer, songwriter and harmonica master Kim Wilson - solo artist and still leader of the The Fabulous Thunderbirds. Pat & Kim had the greatest time on Sirius Blues talking about his latest CD "Lookin' For Trouble" and the fact that over the past few years, Kim has been up for numerous Grammy Awards and W.C. Handy Awards, yet had never actually won one. Three days after Kim's visit on Pat's show, the title track won the W.C. Handy Award in Memphis for Blues Song of The Year. Congratulations Kim!

Considered by many to be one of the greatest harmonica players in the world, Charlie Musselwhite was a recent guest on Pat's blues show on Sirius. Charlie brought his whole band up, and played several songs from his new CD "Sanctuary". Pat reminded Charlie that he had introduced him on stage at Madison Square Garden back in 1990 at the John Lee Hooker Tribute Concert as the night's emcee. Charlie said he remembered that night well, as it was the first time he had ever played his guitar on stage. A wonderful gentleman, a few weeks after the interview, Charlie sent Pat one of his harmonicas, which his hand written note said he'd carried thousands of miles and played around the world. It was engraved to Pat with Charlie's signature. A very nice man!

Pictured here are three key members of Tower of Power, who came by Sirius for a visit with Pat. Long known for their special brand of soul, funk and blues, T.O.P. are always in demand to back up other bands, while for over three decades have continued to crank out their own rockin' albums. Pictured here (clockwise from top left) are drummer David Garibaldi, leader, cofounder, singer & saxman Emilio Castillo, singer Larry Braggs and Pat. The band who gave us such classic songs as "What Is Hip" (used prominently on The Drew Carey Show), came by with their latest CD "Oakland Zone".

They are currently on tour filling rooms across the USA. Not unlike The Grateful Dead, Tower of Power have followers who travel long distances to see their performances, so get your tickets early, as T.O.P. shows are always "Souled Out"!

Among the first to be inducted into the Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame, legendary Bo Diddley came by Sirius for a February 19th interview on the Pat St.John Show. The two chatted about the "Bo Diddley Beat", his long career as one of the pioneers of Rock'n'Roll, as well as playing lots of his music. There were some laughs along the way, as Bo told Pat the story of his appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show (predating Elvis Presley's) where Mr. Sullivan asked that Mr. Diddley sing a version of Tennessee Ernie Ford's "Sixteen Tons"! Bo sang "Bo Diddley".

At the conclusion of the interview and a song, Pat ended the segment by simply stating "Ladies and Gentlemen, Ellis has left the building." (Bo's real name is Ellis McDaniel.)
