Update: Video of the conversation and Terry Reid’s acoustic tunes can be watched on Facebook Live:
Washington Post national arts reporter Geoff Edgers will sit down with British singer and guitar player Terry Reid on Sunday, April 24 for a pre-concert discussion at Bethesda Blues & Jazz Supper Club. Terry Reid and Cosmic American Derelicts will perform a rock concert following the conversation. According to Edgers, Reid is the greatest singer who never made it. The man who, as the legend goes, turned down a chance to sing lead for Led Zeppelin. Most recently, Reid has been collaborating with Johnny Depp and Aerosmith and John Lennon producer, Jack Douglas in a jam session as featured in this video.
Listen to Reid’s new single, “I’ll Do Happiness” with Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry.
