Over the past two decades or so, Derek Trucks has made his name known through his guitar playing with the Allman Brothers Band, touring with Eric Clapton, and his solo career with his band and, most recently, with his wife Susan Tedeschi. He is simply one of the best guitarists out there today, and his slide guitar work is second to none. Recently, he sat down with Music Radar to talk all things music and what his secret to success has been.
