BLACKBERRY SMOKE - „Live zu spielen, ist unser Sinn und Zweck“

When Blackberry Smoke toured Germany in 2019 together with the mega-successful Lynyrd Skynyrd, it was a dream combination for the Southern rock community and at the same time a summit meeting of two bands from two hotspots of the genre - after all, the Skynyrds' home is the Floridian Jacksonville, while Blackberry Smoke were founded in Georgia's capital Atlanta in 2000. Eclipsed spoke to frontman Charlie Starr via Zoom about Southern rock in general, Blackberry Smoke's new album "You Hear Georgia" in particular, and twenty years of the band's history.
