2011-03-00 - RENEGADE NATION STUDIO, NEW YORK CITY, NY
Bruce makes his debut appearance on Steve Van Zandt's
Little Steven's Underground Garage
radio show. The interview was broadcast in three parts on April 1, 8 and 15 on over 200 terrestrial FM radio stations across the United States. More an informal, spontaneous chat between friends than an interview, the show was recorded some time in March at Van Zandt's office studio at Renegade Nation in Manhattan's Greenwich Village and celebrates the ninth anniversary of
Topics included in the show are wide ranging, but primarily cover Bruce and Steve's musical influences between 1963 and 1969. They initially talk about Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Bruce learning how to play his first guitar, "Twist And Shout", The Animals (Bruce plays his guitar to demonstrate the similarity between "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood", "Prove It All Night" and "Badlands"), The Kinks and The Yardbirds. Discussing guitar playing, Bruce brings up Teddy Spelios, who was in a group called The Source and could play like Jeff Beck. He was able to produce a sound that Bruce was unable to match, until he purchased a guitar from an ex-marine with a long neck and no strings that was able to produce "the first distortion on the shore," and he was finally able to replicate the sound of "Sunshine Of Your Love". It wasn't until some time later that he found out it was actually a bass guitar. They then talk about Bob Dylan, the British Invasion, The Rolling Stones, and The Who. They discuss Them, and how Bruce (with The Castiles) performed their show-stopper "Mystic Eyes" at a
Battle Of The Bands contest in 1966
. Click the date/location link above for a full transcript of the interview.
