So, I tried uploading this properly to the Audio page, but for some reason, Red Room's audio page is giving me no love. In any case, here's what this is about:
On 20 March 2011, longtime Rolling Stone stalwart and renowned writer/editor Dave Marsh moderated a panel at South by Southwest in Austin, to celebrate the release of and on piano...Nicky Hopkins, Julian Dawson's monumental biography of superstar session keyboard man Nicky Hopkins. The panel was packed, and became one of the highlights of this year's SxSW. Included on the panel were author Julian Dawson, Richard Perna, legendary keyboard players Ian McLagan and Chuck Leavell, and me. All of us knew, worked with, hung with or lived with Nicky during his life, and all of us feel strongly that his level of genius doesn't deserve obscurity.
