Steve Luongo (John Entwistle Band) ep 113

November 10, 2021

We select our episodes from the live stream version of R&R Show 'n' Tell.   Our 200th guest on the stream was me (Steve Luongo) I was interviewed by Fader Istheman and the whole experience was a lot of fun.  I included a live performance by The John Entwistle Band "Under A Raging Moon" from Detroit at Pine Knob amphitheater.  The song includes my drum solo from that show.  If you're not a fan of drum solos fast forward about 10 minutes and you should be safe...  I have played with many well known artists including Leslie West-Mountain, Mark Farner-Grand Funk Railroad, Robin Zander-Cheap Trick, Brian Johnson and Cliff Williams-AC/DC, Todd Rundgren and more. BUT, performing with John Entwistle of The Who was a standout 15 year period of my music career.  I hope you enjoy this episode.
