Brad “Guitar” Wilson is riding high with the release of his latest full-length album, a self-titled effort that topped the blues rock charts back in July and remains a hot seller with fans.
One of the key tracks from that album is a live version of “I Can’t Quit You Baby,” which has also been a top 10 success story on the blues-rock singles charts.
The accomplished vocalist-guitarist, who has opened for such headliner acts as Buddy Guy, Cheap Trick, .38 Special, Marshall Tucker Band and Tommy Castro during his lengthy career, has a couple of high-profile dates coming up in the Bay Area.
Wilson opens up for Chicago on Sept. 6-7 at the lovely Mountain Winery in Saratoga. Fans of the Rock and Hall of Fame act — responsible for such hits as “25 or 6 to 4,” “Hard to Say I’m Sorry” and “You’re the Inspiration” — should definitely show up in time to see Wilson perform his set as well.
