This is a rebroadcast of one of the more popular Everyone Loves Guitar episodes, while Craig is out on vacation.
Kasim has played bass, keyboards and sang with Todd Rundgren’s Utopia for the last 40 years. He’s recorded 4 solo albums with his own band, and he’s also played on records and toured with Blue Oyster Cult, Meat Loaf, Hall & Oates, Cheap Trick, Patty Smyth, Richie Sambora, Joan Jett, Patti Smith and The New Cars
Kasim talks about getting sober 28 years ago, and what his journey into sobriety was like… networking in New York with Mick Ronson and Cherry Vanilla… How he almost didn’t get the gig with Todd Rundgren (Todd didn’t want him at first)... talking with Paul & Linda McCartney… and loads of other interesting stories during this eye-opening and candid conversation with this very cool rock and roll legend...
