Guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Rusty Young was an integral part of the rootsy Americana band Poco — and he’s also a masterful, engaging storyteller.

Young was one of our marquee RockCellarTV interview subjects, and after a bit of technical delays our full, detailed on-one-one video interview is finally available.

Featuring an extensive conversation between Rusty Young and Rock Cellar’s Ken Sharp, there’s also a pair of added performance clips — enjoy it all below:

And the performance clips:

RockCellarTV was introduced a few years ago as an effort to allow larger-than-life music icons to get up close and personal, discussing whatever they want — for however long they want, resulting in some candid conversations about hits, successful albums and music legacies … as well as misses, scandals and anything else they were comfortable discussing.

Rusty Young joins the ranks of those we’ve spoken with in this capacity during RockCellarTV’s history, a list that includes Todd Rundgren’s UtopiaWalter EganStewart CopelandJudy CollinsRita CoolidgePeter Noone of Herman’s HermitsSteve HackettJohn OatesRick SpringfieldGene Simmons of KISSSteve Lukather of TotoMike Love of the Beach BoysTodd RundgrenRingo Starr and more.

Some of these chats took place at Rock Cellar HQ in California, while others were filmed on-location at venues (like the world famous Troubadour in Hollywood, in the case of our chat with John Oates) as the artists prepared for a gig. They’re all up on our YouTube channel.
