Episode 57: Leo Valvassori

Leo ValvassoriLeo’s story is that of a creative individual; playing bass in bands, touring live, studio work, and the occasional producing job. We hear about gigging with local legend, and universally recognized bluesman, Mel Brown, touring with “The Hawk”, Ronnie Hawkins, Ms. Black Velvet herself, Alannah Myles, and the day-to-day life of a musician. Talk turns to early struggles when Leo learned he had Lymphoma in his early twenties and how making it through cancer informed his life. A great chat with a cool cat.explicit
