First Time I Met The Blues: Chris Spedding
Veteran Motorbikin’ guitarist and one-time Womble Chris Spedding on playing with blues legends and the day the Stones nicked his ambulance.
A man at the epicentre of British rock’n’roll, Chris Spedding started out in Dusty Springfield’s road band, played with Sonny Boy Williamson, Memphis Slim and Peter Green, and opened for the Stones at Hyde Park. He was on TOTP with 1975 hit Motorbikin’, and again as a Womble, then helped launch the Sex Pistols. He’s behind the licks on hundreds of albums and now he’s made another one of his own, Joyland.
