Bryan Bassett is the guitarist who may be best known for his work in Wild Cherry...he created the famous riff that kicks off the band's platinum smash 1976 hit -- "Play That Funky Music."  He tells the story of that song, as well as the record's multi-racial appeal that made it Number One on both the pop and R&B charts.

But Wild Cherry marked only the start of Bryan's success in music.  After he left the band, Bryan became a producer and engineer at King Snake Records, a specialty blues label.  He later joined Molly Hatchet and - for the past two decades - has been a member of Foghat.

And in this episode of RPM45, Bryan tells about all of it...and more!
