Charlie Starr and his band Blackberry Smoke are working to keep the Southern Rock sound alive and well. Charlie has a deep understanding of the sounds and traditions that make up the classic guitar sounds of those great bands. In this interview we talk about Charlie's upbringing in Alabama and how he started playing guitar and writing, as well as what it takes to keep a band going in these modern times, his love of single pickup Gibson guitars and how he goes about writing new material.
