Memphis Music Inner View Greg Reding

See also

Greg Reding is one of the Memphis musicians that makes Memphis music so different from any other city. Greg has been a part of the Memphis music scene since the 70’s as part of many local bands before making a big splash with the Hot Dogs, Black Oak Arkansas, Albert King and so many others.

Greg, in addition to being a great musician is also a very humble and honest man. He has no problem talking about his mistakes as well as his success. He’s as great a speaker as he is a musician. He knows how to not only tell a factual story but also with great comic timing.

I had a chance to sit down with Greg recently and talk to him about his career and its ups and downs. He opened up to me about his mother and how she supported his decision to pursue his love for music and performing.

He talks about his chance to play with one of his heroes, Stephen Stills. He also talks about how much he loved being a part of the Hot Dogs but hated the name and why. Both are great stories but neither beats the story of his first tour with Black Oak Arkansas. He points out that he has never shared some of these stories before. I could write about the stories but nothing beats hearing them from Greg himself. You get a true since of who he is and how much he has enjoyed the life that he knew he wanted from the first time he saw the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show.

Check out the YouTube video of the interview and get to know Greg Reding for yourself. See him live with the Memphis All-Stars at Huey’s Southwind Sunday March 2nd and at Neil’s March 9th for the JoJo Jefferies fund raiser along with The Lineup and Jack Rowell Jr and Triplthret.
