#223 - Fito de la Parra of Canned Heat (Interview Show)

Fito de la Parra of Canned Heat has a conversation with Tom about beginning his career as a professional musician whilst still at school, moving to America to join Canned Heat and going on to record the classic hippie anthem, "Going Up The Country", before headlining Woodstock in 1969. Fito's autobiography, Living the Blues, is out now. NB - This episode was originally recorded as part of Tom's Greatest Music of All Time Podcast, which organically evolved from its inception in early 2020, from a focus on the discussion of music to also exploring pop culture, comedy, entertainment, entrepreneurship, philosophy, science, politics and current affairs commentary. It was renamed as the Tom Cridland Podcast in January 2023.
