The Long Ryders are touring in May and our old pal Sid Griffin tells us what to expect and looks back here at …
… Herman’s Hermits and the Dave Clark Five playing on a steamboat.
… his first live performance aged 16 in a glam-rock red dress at a barbecue in Kentucky (fee a colossal $100) playing Paul Revere, Kinks and Byrds covers.
… seeing Big Joe Turner with the Lee Allen Orchestra (11-piece horn section!).
… the Everly Brothers’ first reunion.
… a barely known Carole King onstage in The City in 1968.
… his local bluegrass sessions at the Landseer Arms in Archway (“very Greenwich Village 1961”).
… and the benefits of touring when you’re older – “the pressure’s off”.
