Continuing in our series of musicians you may not have heard of but you certainly have heard is the great piano player Chuck Leavell.  Chuck is from Alabama and has been a mainstay in the roots rock scene since the early 70’s.  He has played with the likes of Eric Clapton, The Allman Brothers Band, and currently with the Rolling Stones.  Hear Chuck on the Allman Brothers classic Jessica or go check out the Clapton Unplugged record to get a taste of Chuck’s style.

Here he is breaking down a chorus of the Blind Willie McTell tune “Statesboro Blues”.
