Albert Lee is has worked with the entire 'Who's Who' list in music! He replaced Jimmy Page in The Crusaders before joining Chris Farlowe and The Thunderbirds in ‘64. He soon found his guitar of choice, the Fender Telecaster, while everyone else was playing Gibson Les Pauls and Stratocasters. The US eventually beckoned, and Albert moved to Los Angeles, where he met his idols Phil and Don Everly. Don invited Albert to play with him and pedal steel legend Buddy Emmons. After working on Don’s second album, Albert left to join Joe Cocker’s band. Albert released his first solo album “Hiding”, produced by Brian Ahern, which featured perhaps the definitive version of “Country Boy” with Emmylou Harris on backing vocals and Ricky Skaggs on fiddle. When he returned to London in 1978 for session recording, Albert met Eric Clapton. He was invited to join his band and played on Clapton’s live album “Just One Night”. Albert fulfilled his boyhood dream to play with the Everly Brothers in 1983 when he acted as guitarist and musical director for their reunion concert at the Royal Albert Hall. As Albert toured with Hogan’s Heroes through the late 80s, he began his long association with Ernie Ball Music Man, who would eventually produce his signature guitar that he tours and records with today. In 2002 he joined Eric Clapton, Tom Petty, Paul McCartney and other music legends on stage at the Concert for George at the Royal Albert Hall.
