Hey everybody, back in November I got to chat with Jimmy Thackery and the interview is now available on line at American Blues News. This was my first ever interview and I was nervous. I've been a fan of Jimmy since 1995 or so and had just seen his show a few nights before the interview. He was friendly, honest and informative. We covered a lot of ground in the hour or so we had. I hope you enjoy it.

Thanks for posting the interview you did with Jimmy.

We 1st caught Jimmy back in the 70's when he was playing with the Nighthawks. They would roll through Atlanta on a fairly regular basis and play at Rosie's Cantina........

The Nighthawks were the opening act for the ABB at many shows in the early 80's.
Mark Wenner (Nighthawks) and Jimmy are 2 of the most under rated performers on the road today.

Mark is still carring the torch as the leader of the Nighthawks and is one of the best harp players out there.........

Dude thanks for the interview. I've seen Jimmy Thackery several times over the years. The Double Door in Charlotte used to be his second home or so it seemed. I recall seeing him one time at a blues show at Carrowinds and he owned it. I felt the same as I did when I saw Stevie Ray that that was as close to Hendrix as I was going to get. A friend of mine's sister used to tend bar somewhere in SC. She told me that Jimmy and Stevie played her club at the same time or were sharing the stage. I would of loved to have been a fly on the wall. Jimmy's advice in not sounding like SRV should be heeded by some of the thousands of SRV wannabes out there.

Nice interview, Jim. I've been a fan of Jimmy for a long time. He played a blues festival in Iowa a few years back and was just fantastic - he was really personable and very nice to talk to. He signed a cd I bought which was very nice. I find it hard to fathom that world class guitar players like him, Chris Cain and so many others have to schlep their own equipment, etc., and there are people like Brittany Spears who make millions. It's just so wrong.

He still plays there, Chris - after all, Mark, his bass player, is the sound guy at the DD when he isn't on the road with JT.

BTW, he has a new CD out: http://www.jimmythackery.com/
