Rod Piazza And The Mighty Flyers have been making their rounds in Orange County, CA, lately and I was lucky enough to catch up with him recently, at Martini Blues in Huntington Beach. Persistence is the key to success and it paid off for me as I got to speak with him briefly between sets. Here's what he had to say:

[Lance Monthly] Where are you from?

Rod Piazza Riverside, CA.

[Lance Monthly] How long have you been together?

Rod Piazza Honey [Rod's wife and keyboardist] and I have been together for over thirty years now.

[Lance Monthly] When was your first big break?

Rod Piazza I got signed with ABC Blues Way Records in 1967, but I started in 1965.

[Lance Monthly] How far have you traveled?

Rod Piazza We've been to Canada, Norway, Spain, Switzerland, Mexico and Australia.

[Lance Monthly] Any future plans?

Rod Piazza To keep doing what I love doing, the blues, for as long as I can.

[Lance Monthly] How did you meet Honey?

Rod Piazza She came to a show in 1973. We were playing in San Gabriel with Big Joe Turner. I needed a keyboard player and somebody brought her backstage and introduced us. That was it.

[Lance Monthly] What do you think about what is going on in the music industry now?

Rod Piazza It is not about the talent anymore, it's about product. Artists like Dinah Washington would never make it by today's standards. Somebody told me, the problem with you is you're right in a wrong world.

Rod has just released a new CD, which is getting rave reviews. It is called Keepin' It Real on Blind Pig Records and you can get it at www.themightyflyers.com or check him out at the upcoming Long Beach Blues Festival!
