On this Lou Pardini Interview: Moving to LA and working his way up, working with Billy Preston, Stevie Wonder, John Patitucci, Elton John & Leon Russell… overcoming a terrible family tragedy… his first written song winning a Grammy for Smokey Robinson, moving to Nashville, having the confidence to do music, the drive for his work ethic, fame vs. desire to make music - and the difference in long-term personal growth, “The Great Disappearing Act,” and why Lou’s “Still trying to figure it all out.” Total first class act, in every way possible and a deeply talented musician who gives 110% all the time
