Perhaps it was inevitable that Dave Fields would become involved in music. The son of famed Broadway and film composer/arranger/producer Sammy Fields, he started playing piano at an early age before taking up guitar at 13. It wasn't long before he was alternating playing sessions with his father and doing his own gigs.
Fields attended Berklee College of Music and has gone on to a career that encompasses film, TV and jingle work, as well as his own albums and live performances. He has worked with artists as diverse as U2, Aretha Franklin, Hubert Sumlin and many more.
Fields recently released his third solo album, Detonation. Unlike his previous efforts, the record is a step away from pure blues and into blues rock. Fields spoke to Long Live Rock about his new album, touring the world, and shared highlights from his long career in the following exclusive interview.
