On this Chris Bruce Interview: OMG Stories for days here! His first trip to the studio at age 14, playing with Wendy & Lisa, Doyle Bramhall II, Meshell Ndegeocello, Greg Leisz, Abe Laboriel Jr., Joe Henry, Billy Preston, George Clinton… working with producers Trevor Horn & Craig Street, top 3 musical experiences, getting through low points in life, his calming nature, parents’ influence, discipline, acceptance and more. TOTALLY cool guy, great vibe:

Chris’ grandparents ran an after hours club in Chicago, where folks like Sam Cooke and Louis armstrong gathered… and Chris’ mother was friends with Curtis Mayfield, Gary Shider & Glenn Goins (Funkadelic). A lifetime sideman, his first gig was touring the world with Wendy & Lisa, and he’s toured or recorded with Jeff Beck, Doyle Bramhall II, Greg Leisz, Pino Palladino, Abe Laboriel Jr., Billy Preston, Tom Waits, Chris Connelly and loads of others, on both guitar and bass.
