Episode 105: Dave Hole

Our guest today is one of my personal guitar heroes, Dave Hole.
David is Australia’s premier internationally successful bluesman and highly acclaimed slide guitar virtuoso.

He first burst onto the international scene in 1991 with, “Short Fuse Blues”, the first of his seven albums released on the prestigious Alligator records label.  He is widely regarded as one of the all time slide guitar greats whose playing is infused with the spirit of such legends as Elmore James, Duane Allman and Johnny Winter.

Nine successful albums and countless tours of the U.S. and Europe have solidified Hole’s stature as one of the very best slide guitarists playing today.

Metallica’s Kirk Hammett names Dave Hole as one of his favourite guitarists and when veteran rock and blues guitarist Gary Moore heard “SHORT FUSE BLUES” he was so impressed that he sought out Dave to invite him to do two European tours together. They played stadiums and arenas and concluded with two memorable nights at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

Dave played on stage with some of his heroes Otis Rush, Buddy Guy and Albert Collins to mention some.
