The Gibson Interview: Paul McCartney Guitarist Brian Ray (Part Two)

In 2002, Brian Ray joined quite probably the greatest touring band in the world, when he took the period at Super Bowl XXXVI with Sir Paul McCartney. The band, consisting of Ray, guitarist Rusty Anderson, drumming juggernaut Abe Laboriel Jr., veteran keyboardist Paul Wix Wickens and, obviously, that Beatle gent, have tour the world many times over for the past eight years. In addition, the group have been present to a rebirth in Macca’s recording career, though many of his albums from this decade have been true solo connections, with Paul playing nearly every instrument. Regardless, this combo has entertained millions and shows no signs of slowing down.

In Part one of the Gibson Interview, Ray discussed the long and winding highway he took to this stage, including stops with Bobby Boris Pickett, Etta James and Smokey Robinson. In the conclusion, he delves into the McCartney years and offers a preview to his rocking fresh album, This Way Up – unconfined today!
