    LYNYRD SKYNYRD'S & BLACKFOOT’S ROCK ‘N ROLL ICON RICKEY MEDLOCKE

    in Entertainment

    Lynyrd Skynyrd and Blackfoot’s rock and roll powerhouse Rickey Medlocke joins Halli at her table on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show for a rare in-depth interview, Wednesday, November 18, 3 pm ET.


    Rickey Medlocke has been performing on stage since the age of three. His grandfather, Shorty Medlocke, was a well-known Delta blues musician and taught his grandson, still in diapers, to play a miniature banjo. His musical abilities increased over the years. At age five, he began teaching himself to play the guitar. At the tender age of eight, he was playing drums in Grandpa Shorty’s band. He went on to master the banjo, guitar, drums, mandolin, dobro and keyboards. And let’s not forget the voice, rough, raspy, irresistible. The kid from Jacksonville made good, first carving his way in the competitive world of rock and roll at eighteen as founder, singer and guitarist for the celebrated band Blackfoot. And then as a member of the iconic Southern Rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd. He continues to tour with Lynyrd Skynyrd, but more importantly, Blackfoot is back!


    A conversation with the iconic singer, songwriter, musician, producer, Rickey Medlocke, on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday, November 18, 3 pm ET. For more information visit Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.
