Loren Gold from The Who

Loren Gold is the longtime keyboardist for The Who and Roger Daltrey solo, and has also toured with Kenny Loggins, Don Felder and many others. Loren and I deep-dive his impressive and diverse musical resume as a touring keyboardist, singer/songwriter, and musical director for Pop acts such as Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, and American Idol’s Taylor Hicks. Loren has also recorded several solo instrumental albums, written music instruction books, and like me, has a deep appreciation of the artists and bands from the 60’s and 70’s among others. This was a fun and wide-ranging conversation with a very talented music industry insider and very cool guy to boot.
