Written in 1927, Lonesome Road has been covered about a squillion times.
“I was thinking of the Bobby Darin version,” says Brian. “Again, I combined rock ’n’ roll rhythm parts with jazz guitar to make something new.
“The lead guitar is the ’63 D’Angelico; the rock ’n’ roll riff is the Gretsch.”
Lonesome Road is a classic example of the skilful way Setzer can maintain a listener’s attention all the way through one of his instrumentals.
“I think you have to take a unique approach to the song,” he says. “You’ve got to change it up. Play the melody and put some hot-ass solo in there.”
