Cat o' Nine Tales: Nils Lofgren

Episode 115,  Apr 21, 07:20 PM

Cat chats with Nils Lofgren

Twenty years of interviewing fabulous musicians is no mean feat and I thought it deserved some kind of celebration, or at least to be marked in history for posterity.

So, I’ve recorded Cat o' Nine Tales; 9 special episodes of CATtales to look back on those early encounters where the recordings of the interviews no longer survive and the details only remain in written form.

After introducing my guest, I’ll give you a link address to read the interview and play some of their key hits for you to listen to whilst you enjoy it. 

Thank you to you the listeners and my fabulous guests for your support over the years, I hope you enjoy these special 9 tales...

Tale 2:

There’s so much more to Nils Lofgren than just being part of Bruce Sprinsteen’s E-Street Band.

He’s played with Neil Young, Crazy Horse, Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band, Patti Scialfa, and Grin as well as being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

So when I got the opportunity to I speak with him backstage on his Break Away Angel solo tour, I jumped at the chance.

This tale dates back to 16th November 2001, visit for the one with Nils Lofgren and sit back and enjoy these tunes.
