RS Country have posted a previously unpublished interview with Neal Casal who died earlier this week, which he gave in April and in which he talked at length about the unexpected advent of the band Circles Around the Sun (originally formed to write and record set-break music for Grateful Dead shows in 2015), how he came to play Willie Nelson’s ‘Trigger’, and how he once played in Blackfoot. He told them: “I don’t know if there’s an instrument that I’d rather pick up. I think [Clarence’s B-bender] is number one for me.” You can read the whole interview here.
