Today on episode #505 of LET THERE BE TALK my guest is Austin legend Mike Flanigin.
Mike 'The Drifter' Flanigin is known as the 'go to' Hammond B3 organist for Lone Star guitar legends Jimmie Vaughan and Billy Gibbons. He has also performed with Steve Miller, Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt, Robert Plant, Willie Nelson, ZZ Top, Gary Clark Jr., Doyle Bramhall II, Charlie Sexton and many others. His 2015 solo release THE DRIFTER reached #1 on the iTunes Blues Chart and was described by Rolling Stone Magazine as a “Road trip-worthy record, with Flanigin creating his own version of atmospheric Americiana.”
I absolutely love this mans playing and it was a honor to sit down with him and get a history lesson on all things Hammond B3 Organ.
I think you guys will really dig this episode.
