One of the WARMEST people & most candid interviews you’ll ever listen to. Michael Hill grew up in the South Bronx and had an idyllic childhood, being exposed to all kinds of love and music. Bruce Iglauer from Alligator personally came to sign Michael to Alligator for his first record. 6 records and hundreds of performances in 29 countries later, Michael left the music business.
Michael explains why, and he also shares loads of cool stories about the Black Rock Coalition and Vernon Reid… playing with Buddy Guy, BB King & Luther Allison (just before he died)... growing up in The Bronx… how to think about money (and maybe even more important - how not to)... Seeing Hendrix & Santana at Woodstock… some very interesting stories on meditation and LOADS more cool stuff. VERY raw, VERY real, this is a GREAT interview - as soulful as it gets:
