Our After Midnight acoustic session guest, Aynsley Lister, picked up the guitar at the age of eight and played his first gig at 13. One year later, on a family trip to San Francisco, he was jamming at Lou's Bar on Pier 49.

Brought up on his father's record collection, he had learned to play by ear and would sit for hours in his bedroom playing along to old 45s of Freddie King, John Mayall and Eric Clapton. He plays an acoustic set for Bob and talks about his latest album, tour and past influences.
