Canadian blues rocker Pat Travers returns to Windsor on Sunday, April 14 for an intimate show at Rockstar Music Hall, ending his current April tour in the Rose City. The talkative frontman checked in with 519 for a lengthy interview.
While most of his cohorts hailed from the US, Toronto’s Pat Travers has been rocking across the world since 1976 and enjoyed a tremendous amount of success with the live 1979 album Live! Go for What You Know (Live at Opry House 1979) which contained a hard rock cover of the classic blues song Boom Boom (Out Go the Lights) – written by harmonica player Stan Lewis and first recorded by Little Walter in 1957.
We had a chat with Pat about the 40th anniversary of that album and single, as well as some great memories of Rush from the early 70s.
