Kirk is my hero, musically and geographically. (I want to live in Switzerland too)
justrightinmaine
Too much talking about Clapton. Kinda felt bad for the guy.
Ricky Laureano
Love Kirk, his style and his voice but Captain, really? the constant comparing feels a little bit disrespectful.
Randy Geist
First interview that Lee didn’t handle very well... Always coming back with Clapton questions. It’s Kirk and about him
Adrien Dubois
I think that we need to stop trying comparing every single licks to someone else's style. This is Kirk Fletcher, not Stevie Clapton...We need to enjoy and it's really easy so stop making it harder...nice job and very nice album congrats!
Alper Ademi
clapton this clapton that.... Lee, you're a great guy, but this was not one of your greatest moments...
grassroots2112
Kirk "The Permanent Smile" Fletcher. Or Kirk "Golden Smile" Fletcher. Seriously one of the kindest guys I have ever seen.
Pavel Tyan
Claptony. You are playing a Fender guitar with maple neck, Kirk, don't you find it a bit Claptony? Or you're using 6 strings and single coil pickups: isn't it Claptony?

Clapton Clapton Clapton Clapton Clapton
Ehmmm Jay
That shirt says "party", but that Tele is ALL BUSINESS!!
Ross Gill
Stop talking over him Lee! Lol
Whiskers B
I think Lee means all the clapton and Stevie stuff as compliments, but it's a bit awkward.
Bill Wittman
When BB passed it left a HUGE hole in the world of guitar but, FINE MUSICIANS like Kirk will fill the void and keep bring AMAZING music to the world... Thank you Kirk. Cheers!
Darren C
Maybe the if the captain meets eric clapton he'll constantly compare him to freddy king. Or a poor mans bb king
shfnderrock
Wow this was great, what a humble guy and great player. New fan right here
Ronnie MacRae
The flame neck on that tele. Gorgeous. All credit to Eric Clapton.
David Blanchard
great album and kirk is such a great musician. Lee usually you do great interviews, but this time you really went over board with the clapton/srv comments. Its Kirk Fletcher, lets focus on him and his album.
Mike Sykes Music
What a cool dude.
Graham Haynes
Why does Lee keep comparing Kirk's playing style to the blues greats who went before? We all know that third/fourth generation blues players are re-cycling to keep it alive. Kirk is a great player and comes across as a really nice gent, who is humble enough to laugh off Lee's naive comments. I found the interview quite arrogant and patronising but hey ho, I suppose that's what happens when folks get caught up in the hyped up world of social media.
Sunny Suman
For a moment i was shocked that it's Kirk Hammett.
Luke43168
Appreciate the channel, but with all due respect, what a jackass interview job in all facets. Should be ashamed of himself, the interviewer should. That said, thanks for featuring Kirk, but the interviewer is still a straight up jackass.
Ross Gill
Poor Kirk Clapton, I’m mean Fletcher! 🤭😀😆😜
pgod1960
The album is fantastic, a real treat and some glorious playing. Sadly, Lee did this splendid musician a disservice here.

The Captain Thinks He Meets Eric Clapton
Daz730
Incredible tone very slick, definitely a fan 👍
Darren C
A didn't know Kirk Fletcher was a Clapton tribute act.
deanosilkmusic
My god his voice is so soothing! He sounds like Chef from south Park lol! Awesome video as per, and what a guitar player!
Jeppe Garfunkel
Kirks seems to be one of the most down to earth guys in the business. It’s always a pleasure to hear him chat and play :-) + Love the new album!
kingstumble
Lots of American bluesmen have relocated to various parts of Europe over the years because they are appreciated more than in their homeland. Champion Jack Dupree came to live in Halifax!
dzjc01
With respect to Lee, he obviously didn't prepare for the interview this time. He didn't know the name of the album of the guest?! Obviously, Kirk wanted to plug his new album by name and have the host at least acknowledge it. BTW, "Track 1" sounds really great.
David Evans
Kirk is such a beautiful soul
Gary Moseley
Lee keeps referencing Clapton. Does he not realise that Clapton is just a composite of his influences, as are we all. The intro to the track "Two steps forward" I hear Albert Collins in the bends, not Clapton at all. Lee Just has CLAPTON blinkers on. Eric's fantastic but I think Lee should probably listen to more of the original electric blues guitar players.
JME WILLIAMS
Leave it to the Captain to tell him how derived his parts
jinx0192
Music sucks if you can't feel it. I felt every note that man played. Wonderful stuff. Thanks for the interview, I found a new artist to get into.
TheBhannah
i hear some Robert Cray sounds in there also
Gabriel Graham
14:49 singing sounds like Chef from South Park 👨🏾‍🍳👨🏾‍🍳👨🏾‍🍳
jorge fernandes
The time have changed years ago an afro american would probably name B.B King and those early guys as the main influence.
eric w
Talented and funny dude man!!
Randy Geist
Kirk is so cool. Very relaxed, always seems to enjoy life. Humble & polite. And his playing... what a beast!
Uncomfortable penguin
I don’t like Blues but I like Kirk Fletcher for sure.
Christopher
Eric Clapton aka Slow Hand. There’s a reason for that nick name. Eric is a true Master. Enjoy listening to Kirk very sweet and tasteful. I hear a little Robert Cray in Kirks Music.
antoine jackson
Love love love love love this
hoffelhass
Nice man, cool guitarist, Lee a bit merrr ..
Christopher Burnett
Man.... great guy, great guitarist. Like others have mentioned, it got a bit uncomfortable with all the comparisons. He just sounded really good to me. I'd love to catch him live.
Ross Horne
Why have I never heard of this guy, so bloody good
MrTentpegs
Man, the solo on "track three"... I'm an instant fan. Beautiful tone! You've captured my ear, Sir!
ZappaBlues
Well done interview. And,... High, from Canada, eh.
Shef Guitar
Lee is just embarrassing really.
Slade Renegade
Yea a little less about clapton and maybe ask Kirk how he does HIS unique sound. All blues licks are going to sound like clapton, stevie, moore, etc..
Whoopty Doo
The Captain Meets JD Simo would be awesome!
Simon Smith
What a guitarist and such a humble guy!
Road Dog
Wanted to hear about his music journey. Needs an invite back and a hour.
Nic White
I loved "Switzerland" !!!
JUST NATSUKI
those were some tasty licks
Chris Mcreynolds
Wow..he sounds like a slightly "busier" David Gilmour
Bill Taylor
So, Clapton couldn't tear it up. Huh
Paul Moore
Captain, why won’t you do captain meets chappers/danish pete/rabea??
kdrake777
What a delightful guy!
rexsolomon
I sincerely doubt if any of the commenters here can interview a guitarist for the first time for 20 solid minutes better than Lee Anderton. Lots of laughter, lots of spot on comments. Gentle prodding, producing sincere, unforced answers. Great interview Captain! =)
ron van hee
Siem Hendriks
Kirk has a new fan right here!
Big Bluesguy
Kirk is just the best. He can play anything !!
focusource1
Would have enjoyed hearing Kirk play through 'The Dane'. That seems like the perfect pedal for him.
Lord Drip
OHHH POPYCOCK!!!
Tokun-B One 1
Err....that first track sounds nothing like Eric Clapton. If anything, it sounds ‘Hendrixian’. Oh, and please stop trying to force the narrative that Clapton is such a major influence on Kirk. Remember that historically, all the ‘other’ players have sought to emulate the original black blues players, with varying (but never quite spot on) degrees of achievement.
John Mundt
This series is great. How about the Captain meets JD Simo?
Afiq Afandi
Stop talking about Clapton. It's kinda rude to this wonderful gentleman.
Jim Morrison's beard and Robert Smith's hair
#Switzerland Great video man, that's great that you can get cool guest like Kirk, so Thanks !🎸
Lee Smith
What a nice guy!
Groovy Kid
Wow! Kirk Fletcher is the Man! 👍🏻😎👊🏻
Matthew Nishimuta
I think it would be cool to see a video about different the trem systems on guitars, and when and how to use them. I am relatively new to guitar and I just got my first real instrument, a Fender Stratocaster, and am absolutely clueless how to make use of this detunifier.
Alex Otterwell
Generally don't like to leave negative comments but really didn't think this was a fair interview / promotion for Kirk. The playback review style of tracks works much better in a radio /podcast format but wasn't right for a youtube channel, fast forwarding and then comparing every track to Clapton / SRV whilst a great compliment , isn't right for someone trying to promote a original record of their own. More research needed beforehand on the record and the artist.
Kraven -
Ive had this itch for a special bluesy sound for a long time. I came close to it with Bonamassas newer stuff, but it wasnt quite there. Not exactly what i was looking for to fill the bluesy void. This is. Sir. Kirk delivers exactly what ive been wanting for so long. The fact that mr.Kirk seem to be genuinely kind and fun makes it that much greater aswell. Thank you for this.
e. tienne
Tone... clap clap clap... tone! Kirk Fletcher you re definitely great and even Roland should rename a certain tone capsule !
Martin
I'm happy this video introduced me to Kirk Fletcher, truly inspiring musician. Cap totally busted the Clapton-o-meter in the beginning, I'm glad he dialled it down by the end.
Blind Back Dupree
Come on Captain. Telling Kirk that he sounds like Clapton, Stevie, BB Etc is just wrong! Give the guy the credit he deserves in that he's a great guitarist singer songwriter in his own right 😎🎸🔊
Doug J
downloaded the Album today Kirk, It's great album man love them all
skobedigatch
Kirk seems to be one of the nicest peeps on the planet
Blues Service
Kirk is my new hero. He is the new King!
davegetsspam
thank you captain for reminding me how great Kirk Fletcher is. I have to buy some of his cds
Ian Nicholls
Yeah, maybe Lee should have had one less coffee before the interview. I really liked that slow track. Definitely getting the album.
dsfadsfgafgf
That was was real funky shit man. Great
Henk Westerik
To be honest never heard of Kirk, but that is amazing guitar blues, awesome!
Guitars and Iron
Ohhhh my mp3 sound quality. ..buy the cd guys and get the way it's supposed to sound...crap sound mp3 produce..I just for demo purposes I guess.....great album tho....sublime player....
Steve Edwards
I feel inspired to go and play some blues now!
Luis Chavez
MAYBE A INTERVIEW Alex Hutchings , He's a great, amazing guitar player , all want to see him
Longjaw #2
Really like Kirk and the album sounds great but not impressed with Lee's interview technique in this - it's a little disparaging to constantly compare Kirk's playing to Clapton or SRV all the time. Quite surprised as Lee's usually a good interviewer.
Smillingrelic GARLIC NINJA cuthUwU
What is the little Marshall? Never mind
Nicky B
Kirk is an amazing musician and fantastic player. He is a great influence on my own development, especially my rythmn chops. Top man!
Fuzz Gordon
❤️ Kirk, Hold On is my favourite track on the album so far.
Craig Miller
Top guy! Great player! Not the Captain's best job but doesn't deserve the hammering he's taken!!
Roger Stucki
did not know that kirk lives in switzerland. cool! greetings from switzerland ;) good interview by the way ...thx!
Henk Westerik
But Clapton was inspired by the USA blues giants, the Freddy Kings, Buddy Guy etc...
erajad
By the way, Capn Lee, how is it possible that there hasn't been a "The Captain Meets..." with Guildford's own Andrew Latimer? Hope "your people" are working on it. :)
Gareth La
Legend Kirk, love the album
Phil Sackett
One of my favorite guitar players and more importantly, human beings. Best of luck with the album. You truly deserve an audience and success Kirk.
Nathan Sturgess
Clapton never tore it up? 😂 Listen to Have You Ever Loved a Woman from Hyde Park - he definitely can tear it up when he wants.
Rocknrolladube
He's got huge hands. Makes that Tele look like a Mustang.
Rockin' Z's
I just downloaded the LP from Amazon. Gonna get into it!! Keep on Rockin' those Blues Kirt!

Thought I clicked onto the Clapton channel. Let it go.
