Chris Rea interview with MusicRadar

Chris talks guitar origins, Strats, the blues and La Passione in an interview with MusicRadar.

“My first Strat was because I saw Ry Cooder at Newcastle City Hall. Dark End Of The Street became like, ‘This is it’; his solo he did that night in the City Hall just blew me away, absolutely blew me away. So I needed to know how he got the sound and why he got that sound. I got my first Strat: pink, 1962, 220 guineas, and that became Pinky.”
