*Not many artists had the resume like this gent. He was a big Beatles fan, so he checked off a box of accomplishment when he played at George Harrison's Concert For Bangladesh. He played with Jerry Lee Lewis because he never got a chance to play with Elvis...so he did the next best thing. As a session musician he's played with The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, The Band, Frank Sinatra, The Beach Boys, The Byrds and Willie Nelson. His collaboration with Elton John was his final and most moving effort. Name the artist...
*We'll play a track that is the name of this band's 3rd album. There is a title track, but when recording it for the album, the band did not like how it sounded. The result was...it never made the album. They brought it back 2 years later in 1970 and put it on their 5th studio album. Name the band and the song...
*The Woodstock Music Festival is legendary in U.S. concert lore. For Woodstock fans, you probably know who the very first performer was at the festival. We'll play a track that artist performed, one of a few cover versions of songs by a band he really liked...and he covered them quite nicely...Name the performer and the band he enjoyed covering...
*We'll play a song this artist wrote with legendary session guitarist, Waddy Wachtel. The artist was working with the Everly Brothers at the time, and he hired Wachtel for that session. Phil Everly asked the pair to write them a dance song. While jamming on their guitars, someone asked what they were playing and Wachtel just started howling. It never got done for The Everly Brothers. Jackson Browne produced the song with backing vocals by Mick Fleetwood and John McVie from Fleetwood Mac...a song that became one of, if not the most, popular tracks ever for this artist. Name the artist and the song...
