81. An Interview With WOODSTOCK ’69 Performer IRA STONE, Bert Sommer & Leslie West Accompanist!

After a childhood jamming with Leslie West and touring in the road band of The Music Explosion, our guest Ira Stone answered a newspaper ad in May 1969 that changed his life—Bert Sommer needed a guitarist for a gig coming up in August, a little thing called Woodstock. We’ll learn about how Ira and Leslie West obtained their unique guitar sound together, the making of Leslie West’s “Great Fatsby” record, which song Ira was playing when the very first standing ovation at Woodstock went down, and the last time Ira ever spoke with Burt Sommer before his death.  Next week: DE LA SOUL rated on the very day their catalog hits streaming!
