Back in January, I blogged about a badass guitarist named Stevie Salas (with a FREE MP3 to boot). Salas, as I mentioned then, is a Mescalero Apache... and proud of it.
In the video interview embedded below, Salas talks about his racial identity.
He also tells the story of how a Mr. George Clinton launched his rock ’n’ roll career in 1985.
And quite an impressive career Salas has had, touring with the likes of Rod Stewart, Mick Jagger and Terence Trent D’Arby... recording with Bootsy Collins, Ronnie Wood and Ronald Shannon Jackson...
Lately, Salas has served as musical director for “American Idol” stars on tour – first Chris Daughtry, then Jordan Sparks, now David Cook.
As a solo recording artist, Stevie Salas is big in Japan.
Click here to hear his remake of a P-Funk All Stars jam called “Pumpin’ It Up.” This is from Salas’s 2007 compilation album “The Sun and the Earth.”
