Desperately Seeking Paul : Paul Weller Fan Podcast

EP51 - Aziz Ibrahim - Guitar Wizard, Master Collaborator & Composer - “Come down beside the water sit and rest”

August 17, 2021

My latest guest Aziz Ibrahim is another true delight - a creator of sound scapes, visionary sounds and guitar magic like very few people on this planet.

Founder of the ‘Desi GuitR’ & the ‘Asian Blues’ - Aziz is known for his role & work as lead guitarist for Simply RedThe Stone Roses and several internationally acclaimed bands and artists including Ian Brown, Paul Weller, Steven Wilson, Asia, Rebel MC & Errol Brown (Hot Chocolate). 

Aziz tells stories of meeting with Paul, forming a magical bond with him + Steve's White and Cradock, Mick Talbot and tales of creating fabulous music together.

We hear about his solo work, which includes the lost LP Lahore To Longsight‘ and the EP ‘Middle Road‘ which both feature contributions from Paul Weller.
