Albert Castiglia: "I don't take any shit, and I owe it all to Junior Wells."
Florida road dog Albert Castiglia on regrets, spoilt musicians and the genius of Junior Wells.
As well as being the highlight of his sixth album Big Dog, Get Your Ass In The Van could easily be Albert Castiglia’s mission statement. Whether cutting his teeth with legendary harp maniac Junior Wells in the 90s, or carving out his solo career in the post-millennium, the Florida bandleader’s ass has rarely been out of it. “I’m 46 years old,” he says. “I’ve been doing music a long time. It’s been a long road to the middle.”
