Hello and welcome to How Did I Get Here? From The Vault! Today, we go back to episode 46 with legendary singer-songwriter and rock and roll hero, Alejandro Escovedo. This show was originally released on 2/14/12. Below are my original notes form the show.
My guest for episode 46 is the legendary Alejandro Escovedo. When I wrote Alejandro a few months ago to see if he was interested in being a guest on my show, I was so flattered when he responded with a "yes" and that he had been listening and loved it, but that he was about to start recording and would get in touch when he was done. Well, he did. He wrote me a couple of weeks ago to see if I was ready for the interview, so I went to his place last week and we sat down and he told me the story of his life in music. Alejandro is "the real deal" not that all of my other guests aren't, Alejandro is just one of those incredibly special artists. The kind of artist you wish you were. I don't really know what else to say. I was very fortunate to sit down and get to ask everything I wanted to ask. I hope you enjoy our conversation. I did. Ciao! -JG
