Episode 652: Eddie Wilson & Jesse Sublett
Hello friends! Austin music legends Eddie Wilson and Jesse Sublett are my guests on the show today! Eddie Wilson started The Armadillo World Headquarters in 1971, brought the cowboys and the hippies together under one strange and beautiful roof to bond over music made by people that would go on to be some of music's greatest legends. He and musician/author, Jesse Sublett wrote the definitive story of the celebrated, historical music/art venue. "Armadillo World Headquarters: A Memoir" by Eddie Wilson with Jesse Sublett is an amazing account of the place and the people set in motion the Austin music scene that we know today. You can find it at awhq.com We have a great conversation about getting AWHQ started, why Eddie left AWHQ, great stories about the old days at The Adrmadillo, Threadgill's, Thanksgiving with The Grateful Dead and much, much more. I really loved this book and had a blast chatting it up with these two legendary gentlemen. Enjoy. Let's get down!
