The legendary British musician Albert Lee has been called "the greatest guitarist in the world" by none other than Eric Clapton.
Lee is visiting the Twin Cities this week for a three-night stint at the Dakota.
He's a household name in Britain, and he plans to play a 70th birthday concert in London next March that is already sold out.
Lee joins The Daily Circuit to talk about his career spanning 50-plus years.
• Albert Lee: A Real Country Gentleman
"My advice for [young guitar players] would be, you can sit in your room and woodshed forever, but the important thing is to get out and play, and do what you have to in order to get out there and jam with a band." (Interview with Guitar International)
• Albert Lee: A true guitar hero
"Throughout his illustrious career, Lee has consistently managed to whip up memorable, fluid licks. But, in keeping with his humble nature, he does it gracefully, unobtrusively, perfectly serving the music, not flashily drawing attention to himself." (Pop Culture Classics)
