Episode 40 - Rick Vito

Read more

Our guest for Episode 40 is slide guitar master Rick Vito.  Rick has had an incredible journey as a musician, from seeing Jimi Hendrix live before he became an international phenomenon, to playing with John Mayall and Albert Collins in the 1970s, to joining the bands of Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, Bob Seger, and Fleetwood Mac over the following years. 

Along the way he has been responsible for some iconic guitar work: the slide guitar in Bob Seger’s “Like a Rock” and the riff in Jackson Browne’s “Somebody’s Baby” are both Rick’s creations. Rick has also released 10 studio albums as a solo artist.     

It was enormously gratifying to get to speak with Rick about his accomplishments as a musician, and to find out he was a down-to-earth, humble guy who appreciates the opportunities he has had to make music a career.

If you would like to learn more about Rick, please check out his website at www.rickvito.com, follow him on Facebook, or check out his Instagram profile which is @rick.vito.  And be sure to take a look at the photo gallery on Rick’s website, he has some awesome pictures there that have been accumulated through his career.

Rick has 24 Gold and Platinum records on his wall - primarily from his time spent with Fleetwood Mac (when Lindsay Buckingham was out), Bob Seger, and Jackson Browne. He’s also played with John Fogerty, Todd Rundgren, John Mayall, Bonnie Raitt, Maria Muldaur, John Prine, Little Richard and Dobie Gray. Rick shares some really cool stories about working and interacting with many of these artists, on this candid call…

Rick also has 10 solo CD’s… Reverend is working on his 3rd signature guitar… he’s been nominated for a Grammy as a guitar player and co-producer of the Mick Fleetwood Blues Band’s album, Blue Again… and he was kind enough to share the biggest obstacles he’s struggled with, over the course of his career… along with the success behind his 35 year marriage. VERY candid call from this guitar warrior...
