Today, it has grown a little from the photo above, taken in Chicago by Fabio Treves in '93. The Italian blues moustache had the opportunity to play with the little Derek about fifteen years ago and assures us that he already showed an extraordinary talent, the same that allows him today to be one of the world's leading blues guitarists and to have already played with Eric Clapton and in the Allman Brothers Band.
He comes to Italy for the first time on the wave of the success of his solo album Songlines for four dates. Starting today, Wednesday 17 October, from Rome and then touch Siena, Cortemaggiore and finally on Saturday 20 Milan... Here are the details of the tour:
