One of the Best Players Out There

Jimmy Herring is a guitar god to fans of neo-hippie music. Born in Fayetteville, NC in 1962, Jimmy started playing music at age 10, placing first in his high school 'Battle of the Bands'. He attended Berklee College of Music in Boston & The Guitar Institute of Technology in Los Angeles, joining Col. Bruce Hampton & Aquarium Rescue Unit in 1990. He recorded their title album (Capricorn, 1992), Mirrors of Embarrasment (Capricorn, 1993) & In A Perfect World (Intersound, 1994). But it's his 1992-3 participation in The H.O.R.D.E. Tour that congealed his national rep among the 'tie-dye' constituency.

As part of The H.O.R.D.E. appeared on-stage nightly, performing electrifying jams with Phish, Blues Traveler, Widespread Panic & Bruce Hornsby. In 1997, Jimmy toured & recorded with Frogwings featuring Butch Trucks & Derek Trucks. Jimmy played & recorded with Jazz Is Dead in 1998 & 1999. This was followed by touring with the Allman Brothers Band as a replacement for Dickey Betts in 2000, as well as being called into action by Phil Lesh for Phil & Friends and Project Z.

Jimmy sat down with Digital Interview in May '99 for an interview that touches on his history, influences and style. Enjoy!
