AS compliments go, being dubbed the ‘greatest guitarist in the world’ by none other than Eric Clapton is a pretty massive one.
But then Albert Lee has long been known as ‘the guitar player’s guitar player’.
World-renowned for his fingerstyle and picking techniques, he has worked with some of the world’s top artists, from Emmylou Harris to the Everly Brothers, Dolly Parton to Eddie Van Halen.
In 2002, Lee appeared at the star-studded memorial concert for George Harrison at London’s Albert Hall.He’s also a member of Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings and fronted the band at the O2 arena on the night of the Led Zeppelin reunion concert.
At the Brunton tomorrow, the Grammy-winner celebrates 50 years in music with his multi-talented band, Hogan’s Heroes (Gerry Hogan, Peter Baron, Brian Hodgson and Gavin Povey).
