Kevin Borich is truly a living legend. Although he is a proud Kiwi, he has definitely gained “honorary Aussie” status by generations of serious music lovers. His blistering blues/rock style is timeless.
This interview originally appeared on one of my other sites, www.improveyourmusic.com and was done by Mark Johnson. It is such a great interview with such an important figure in Australian music that I simply had to reproduce it here.
Over to Mark Johnson…
In this interview I’m talking with Aussie guitar legend, Kevin Borich. We met up at the Coogee Bay Hotel on a Thursday afternoon for what was more of a “free discussion” than a detailed structured interview. Kevin will be celebrating his 60th birthday soon but shows no signs of letting up. Even his recent cancer scare served only to cement his resolution to push on, and ever upwards. We discussed a wide range of topics and as with other interviews, I again found it hard to decide what to cut out and what to leave in. Kevin was very forthright in his opinions of the Australian music scene, but his seemingly brutal criticisms stem from a great passion that you couldn’t kill with a stick. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this casual chat with Kevin Borich.
As usual, this podcast has been recorded and produced by the wonderful folks at Groovy Tunes Music.
