SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - It seemed only fitting that British guitarist Adrian Legg took the phone call for this interview from a Chicago hotel room.
It was even more fitting that at the time of the call, he said he was in the middle of writing in his journal about last night's gig gone wrong. In fact, he compared the Chicago venue from the night before with some of the seedy Irish pubs he's played in.
"Except there wasn't any blood at this one," Legg said, laughing.
Hopefully, he will have better luck in West Virginia this weekend.
Legg, who has won multiple awards for his guitar playing, is scheduled for a show Sunday night at Blue Moon Cafe in Shepherdstown. He said he's looking forward to it.
Legg's on-the-road stories were ripe material for his commentary on National Public Radio's, "All Things Considered," and as musings on his Web site. Sometimes, he said, people don't understand what musicians sacrifice in order to deliver an hour of music to fans who might love it or hate it.
