We’re honored this week to have Gary Waldman as our guest on No Simple Road. Gary is Neal Casal’s long-time friend and manager as well as the executive producer of ‘Highway Butterfly: The Songs Of Neal Casal’ and the founder and Executive Director of the Neal Casal Music Foundation. With a list of titles like that you know this conversation goes deep quick. We talk with Gary about what went into the creation of ‘Highway Butterfly’, how he met Neal, what the common thread was that created such a solid bond between the two of them, the importance of asking for help when we struggle, Neal’s love of photography and the subsequent coffee table book of his images, and a whole lot more!
The Album ‘Highway Butterfly: The Songs Of Neal Casal features Circles Around The Sun, Erik Krasno, Marcus King, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh & The Terrapin Family Band, Susan Tedeschi & Derek Trucks, Billy Strings, Hiss Golden Messenger, Fruit Bats, Steve Earle & The Dukes, Jonathan Wilson, Shooter Jennings, Leslie Mendelson, Vetiver, Beachwood Sparks, Jaime Wyatt, Aaron Lee Tasjan, J Mascis, Dori Freeman, Warren Haynes, Cass McCombs, Kenny Roby, Norah Jones’ Puss N Boots and Tim Heidecker, among others.
