It is said that John Till was so important to the Full Tilt Boogie Band that the moniker once had two letter Ls to represent the guitarist's name properly. Till's biographer, Michael Byrnes, comes on the Goldmine Podcast to debunk that myth and inform us of true tales never told about the Full Tilt Boogie Band (Janis Joplin's final touring and studio unit) and the making of Janis Joplin's masterful Pearl album. Byrnes is currently working on John Till's biography and searching for the proper publisher.
This episode is a nice addition to Goldmine's April 2021 cover story on Janis Joplin, the Full Tilt Boogie Band and, of course, Pearl.
