Bobby Whitlock Bio Arrives In Fall

During his early years in music, Bobby Whitlock was a fixture at the Stax Studios in Memphis.  It was after a Memphis club appearance by the soulful writer and singer that Delaney & Bonnie recruited him for the backup band that would also include Eric Clapton, which led to Whitlock having a strong presence on the Derek & The Dominos studio album.  He also joined Clapton during the sessions for George Harrison's All Things Must Pass, and had an uncredited role on Exile On Main Street, the recently reissued 1972 landmark album by the Stones. Bobby Whitlock: A Rock n' Roll Autobiography should be a great read for anyone interested in the behind the scenes creative process of these and other great projects Whitlock has contributed to.  Widely considered one of the finest musicians of his time by a lot of players far better known than he is Whitlock remains a good friend to most of them, including Clapton, who writes the forward to the book.
