John McLaughlin in GOLDMINE Magazine – April Issue

John McLaughlin in GOLDMINE Magazine – April Issue

No one plays guitar quite the way John McLaughlin does. From his heady rock star
days in the Mahavishnu Orchestra to projects with Carlos Santana, Miles Davis, Shakti,
The Rolling Stones, Jaco Pastorius, film soundtracks and even ballets, McLaughlin
still has his signature sting. On his current Live @ Ronnie Scott’s (Abstract Logix), his
lifelong fascination with the music of India returns to the fore. In fact, India has long
been his adopted country. He even studied under Ravi Shankar in the ‘70s. Yet he’s humble about
his accomplishments (“luck must be my middle name”). As Goldmine goes to print, McLaughlin is back in
India for a series of concerts, and we are lucky that Goldmine was able to catch him before he left.
The issue is out to on March 5 at Barnes and Noble and Books-A-Million newsstands.
From the publisher:
“GREAT interview. I like John even more now after reading it. As a person, not only a guitarist. He’s an enlightened soul for sure.”
