A few months before his passing, John had performed at the Redwood Bar near LA. The show was put together by a Records fan and by any report was well attended. In fact, the enthusiastic audience was on the younger side – something that John remarked he hadn’t seen since the shows he’d done in Portland Ore a couple years earlier.
Although John talked about the show in a phone conversation, he never mentioned the interview that was done afterward. Perhaps he didn’t know it would wind up on Youtube. Not long ago, I inadvertently found it. And so, I share it with you. I don’t have the exact date (posted on November 3, 2018) but I’m fairly sure this is the last interview he ever did. And as always, he was highly entertaining. He discussed his encounters with Peter Green, Mick Fleetwood and Stevie Nicks among other things.
