Albert Lee & Hogans Heroes: Still rocking
  • Albert Lee & Hogan's Heroes: Still rocking

Albert Lee’s list of session employers reads like the guest list at a Hall of Fame luncheon: Eric Clapton, Jerry Lee Lewis, the Everly Brothers, and Emmylou Harris, among others. His name is often mentioned alongside some of the greatest guitarists of all time, like Jimmy Page and Earl Scruggs. But Lee’s astronomical talent hasn’t translated to record sales. His work with Head Hands & Feet in the ’70s earned him a cult following among country-rock fans (who were sparse at the time), and his solo career followed a similar arc. But Lee didn’t get into this for the acclaim or money. Just listen to his supple finger-picking style and witness his humble stage demeanor, and it’s apparent he’s doing this for the music. He’s now on tour with his group Hogan’s Heroes, a bunch of guys with résumés nearly as impressive as Lee’s. They’re on their way to perform at Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival in Chicago, so this is a rare opportunity to see one of the world’s best guitarists in his element. Albert Lee & Hogan's Heroes play The Winchester at 9 p.m. Tickets are $20. Call 216-226-5681 or go to thewinchester.net.—Brian Baker
