I had the opportunity to sit down and chat with Filippo Olivieri the man behind all the stuff coming out of SoloDallas. Fil is a fun guy to talk to and one heck of a guitarist! He’s also extremely busy! Hope you enjoy this Builder’s Profile!
Just a note for you - the reader - as you approach this page: we suggest you click now on the media player and start listening to the audio interview and all the while, you read the preamble to the show as I wrote it below. Just read, look at the pics and listen.
Sit back, relax and enjoy your time here, as always.
First off, some of you - you younger ones or even you, among the older ones not necessarily into the industry of music - who is Terry Manning? Well, to me personally, he means a lot of things which I will try and explain to you, briefly. But to the many who don’t have much time to spend reading and investigating on things, he is a monster of music. He’s done it all; performing and producing. He’s a number of things (musician, composer, photographer, family man, pilot and much more, evidently). He was the man behind several bands back then (‘back then’, a period in time I seem to like to go to, often) whether producing or engineering; bands such as Joe Cocker, Wattstax, Alex Chilton, Big Star, James Taylor, Leon Russell, Led Zeppelin, ZZ Top, Jason & The Scorchers, Rhino Bucket, George Thorogood and The Destroyers, Joe Walsh, Johnny Winter, The Rainmakers, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Molly Hatchet, The Angels, Johnny Diesel and The Injectors, Lenny Kravitz, Jimmy Buffett, Shakira, Crash Test Dummies, Shania Twain, Bryan Adams, Widespread Panic, and many others.
