BURBANK, CA – Blues guitar master Elvin Bishop – newly inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame – will appear on TBS’ CONAN on Monday, May 11. The legendary guitarist will sit in with Jimmy Vivino and the Basic Cable Band for the duration of the show.
Last month, Bishop was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for the groundbreaking music he made with The Paul Butterfield Blues Band. Bishop’s latest solo album, Can’t Even Do Wrong Right, has been hailed as the best of his long career. Rolling Stone says the CD is “among Bishop’s very best…Impeccable playing by a legendary guitarist…engaging singing and most notably, good spirits…a great showing for a distinguished American player.”
Can’t Even Do Wrong Right finds Bishop playing, writing and singing some of the most distinctive blues and roots music today. The album proves that Bishop is as vital and creative an artist now as he was when he first hit the national scene in 1965 with The Paul Butterfield Blues Band. He is as slyly good-humored and instantly crowd-pleasing as he was when he was scoring Southern rock-styled hits during the 1970s. For five decades, he has never stopped touring or releasing instantly recognizable music featuring his inventive playing, easygoing vocals, witty lyrics and good-time humor.
In addition to his new album and his Rock Hall induction, Bishop’s 1975 hit Fooled Around And Fell In Love found new life in the 2014 box-office smash Guardians Of The Galaxy. The soundtrack hit #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and received a Grammy Award nomination.
