Aloha, Charlie Daniels……

It was very sad news today that Charlie Daniels passed on. Charlie was a wonderful musician and a really fine man. I got to bring Charlie into Las Vegas back in the early ’90s to perform a solo corporate gig and a concert that evening at the Imperial Palace. I got to open the concert for Charlie, and we recorded a backstage interview for my Fox TV show “The Entertainment Files.” He was a perfect guest and was even nice enough to answer WAY too many of my questions about his trailblazing role as sidesman to Bob Dylan. Our show was especially geared to movie matters and Charlie gave a delightful list of his top ten desert island movies. His list included a copy of “The Greatest Story Ever Told,” and a really good porno movie.If you aren’t familiar with Charlie’s classic song “The Devil Went Down To Georgia” then you can enjoy it here

In 2014 he also released a great great album of Bob Dylan songs called “Off The Grid-Doin’ It Dylan.” If you want to catch my interview with Charlie you can watch it right here.

I have been lucky enough to work with many Country & Western artists over the years, and almost all of them have been really great guys just like Charlie. I wish him a fond Aloha……….

  1. Nick,

    In the 70s I owned big night club and brought Charlie in for 1 night. Absolutely a fantastic nice guy.

    Sorry to hear of his passing.
