Jay Messina is a native of Brooklyn, New York and ever since his friend and mentor, David Lucas, offered him his first job as engineer in the mid-Sixties, it’s been one ride after another for Jay. The experiences have have been many and the stories he told us when we sat down with him some months back had all of jaws to the ground. It’s 2014 and you would think that after so many years in the business that there would be some sort of let up from the man. Not likely. Personally speaking, this was a very special interview for me because I had the chance to sit down with the man who helped bring to life some of the albums that have shaped my life. It was inspiring. I now invite you all to check out our exclusive interview with Jay Messina and maybe, just maybe, you’ll get just a bit giddy inside as we were when we were conducting said interview.
