Episode 21 – (Part 1 of 2) Interview With Guitarist Graeme Duffin of Wet Wet Wet

There are few guitarists who land a gig with a major pop band. The amount of guitarists who can work with that band for 33 years is minuscule! Graeme Duffin has been the "fifth" member of Scottish chart topping band Wet Wet Wet for all these years. This is the first of two podcasts in which Graeme talks about life on the road, working with the band and many other things besides.
