(Darius Rucker, Eliot Lewis, Daryl Hall)
Most fans of Live from Daryl’s House (LFDH) will recognize Eliot Lewis as the keyboard player from the house band on LFDH. In fact, he is a multi-instrumentalist and quite a guitarist. He and Daryl are the only musicians to have appeared on every episode of the wildly popular Web- / TV-series LFDH.
I just did an interview(link) with Eliot which is now up on the Web’s most popular jazz website. He has a fascinating musical story, and some interesting insights into LFDH. As a kid, the father of his best friend was a rock music publicist. He got Eliot and his freind backstage access to some of the biggest names in early 70s music. In his early working years he did session work with the highly successful producer Dan Hartman (originally from the Edgar Winter Group) and later toured the world with the Average White Band for over a decade before joining the Hall & Oates Band.
Here is a clip of Eliot playing guitar on a episode of LFDH with Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top. This is a fun and wide ranging interview, check it out.
