Interviews: 25+ Years of Conversations



Delaney Bramlett 2008

I had interviewed Delaney a few days before and it was a blast.The only problem was, my machine screwed up and there was no recording. D. was so gracious. He said, "Just call me back and we'll do it again. It'll probably even be better this time!" And you know what, it was. Sadly, Delaney passed away just a couple of weeks after our interview, leaving a huge gaping hole in the world of music. I understand this was his final interview. PLEASE encourage everyone you know to write to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and ask them to induct Delaney and Bonnie! It's a CRIME that they are not already in!
