Luther Dickinson talks about guitarists, influences

NorthMississippiAllstars3.jpg Luther Dickinson gives a video interview on the Gibson website in which he talks about his influences; working with his late father, Jim Dickinson, his favorite guitar players (Jason Isbell and Justin Townes Earle) and more.

Luther Dickinson grew up in the heart of the Memphis roots music scene. Besides his father, legendary producer Jim Dickinson, young Luther was also surrounded by the likes of R.L. Burnside, Otha Turner, Ry Cooder and John Hiatt, among many others. Soaking in this rich tradition of music left a mark on Dickinson, who picked up the guitar at an early age and proceeded to make his own mark in music with The North Mississippi Allstars and, later, The Black Crowes.

Dickinson stopped by Gibson's NYC Showroom to talk about his influences, playing with John Hiatt and his amazing collection of axes.
