Whistle Test


Interview with Ian Wallace - April, 2003

Q:By the way, how did you get the Dylan gig? Because of your sessions with Tim Buckley?

A:No. I was doing some work in LA with a singer whose manager also managed Joan Baez. He knew Dylan was auditioning drummers and he recommended me. I auditioned, and got the gig.

Q: Were you booked for those Buckley sessions while still in England?

A: Yes. It was actually a session for The Old Grey Whistle Test TV show, and the band consisted mainly of The Streetwalkers who I was playing with at the time.
