Boss Dave Wakeling Interview!

Here's a sweet interview with Dave Wakeling that came our way via Beacon Audio where he talks about why he tours in the US as The English Beat; learning the guitar completely wrong (but having Pete Townsend call him up years later in order to learn the chords for "Save it for Later"); what it's like having his guitar in the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame; and the best part of performing live.

+ + + +

The English Beat are performing in the New York City area on July 12th at The Bell House in Brooklyn, July 13 at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ, and on July 18 with my buds Bigger Thomas at The Sellersville Theater in Sellersville, PA.

Also of interest are the deluxe reissues of The Beat's catalogue in the UK, plus the release of The Beat box set (The Complete Beat) in the US.
