SMI Radio Ep. 36 On Demand: Adrian Belew and Luca Sacchetti from RockStar Motel

After a two week hiatus, SMI Radio is back on NWCZ  this week. I spoke with guitarist, vocalist, producer and multi-intrumentalist, Adrian Belew.

Adrian will be performing with his group, Adrian Belew Power Trio along with Stick Men, Saturday, October 15th at The Triple Door. I spoke with this innovative artist about what it was like to work with Frank Zappa and David Bowie as well as King Crimson and his solo work.
