This week I had the pleasure to speak with veteran keyboardist Eric Ragno, and hear all about his experiences playing with some of the biggest names in the music genre I love, good ol' 80s rock, and hear about what got him into music and how coming down to LA in the 90s was the right career move after everyone left the scene for dead. A bit about Eric from his bio so you know what's up:
Eric Ragno is a keyboard player based in Los Angeles. Known in rock circles as the “go-to guy”, he has appeared on dozens of rock albums, performing on tracks with Alice Cooper, Paul Stanley (Kiss), Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top) and many others. He has performed across the U.S. and around the world with Graham Bonnet (Rainbow), Dawn Robinson (En Vogue), Jimi Jamison (Survivor), The Babys and more. Eric is currently on tour with London, the Original Sunset Strip Players.
