Episode 4: Johnny Neel

Tonight, I sit down with southern rock and blues legend Johnny Neel. Johnny is probably best known as a member of the Allman Brothers.

He is an exceptional piano and organ player, and his distinctive, blues-tinged voice can be heard on everything from the Allmans to Disney.
