>> fantastic! >> jimmy: you cannot beat the roots. bonnie raitt, we love having you here. we're just giant fans of yours. >> i'm -- absolutely feel the same way. i'm thrilled. >> jimmy: thank you, pal. now, are you -- you're not a new yorker, right? >> no. >> jimmy: but you're here a little bit? spent time here growing up? >> yeah, my dad, john raitt, was a great broadway leading man. he was in "pajama game" and originated the leading man in "carousel," and -- so, we grew up outside of new york with him going to work at night and getting paid for it. we went, "hey, this is a party, man." >> jimmy: how fun is that, right? and then, you were out in l.a.? >> yeah, he got the movie part of "pajama game." we went back and we moved out there. and both my folks were from there. so i did most of the time in l.a., but i always wanted to be back east. >> jimmy: you did? >> beatniks, you know. >> jimmy: yeah, you got -- yeah, right? you must have played the clubs here in new york city. >> yeah. bottom line. max's kansas city. >> jimmy: no way. how was max's kansas city? >> max's was party central.
>> jimmy: i mean, is that -- here is what i just picture. i picture you. i picture like, mick jagger, bowie, all these dudes just hanging out. and just like -- yeah. and does it let anyone else normal in? >> none of us were normal. nobody slept. everybody was hanging. it was fun to be young at that time. >> jimmy: it was cool. oh, i love that. and how did you start playing slide guitar? what made you go into that type of thing? >> you know, people think it's so hard but it actually beats learning the chords. you know, you probably know. you play guitar. it's just open tuning and it's hard to mess up. you know, i played -- my grandpa played hymns on a hawaiian lap stool when i was little. and i knew, if you just moved this, you could play the chord so when i heard blues -- when i was 14, i got a record and all these blues greats were on it. and i read the back of the label and it said bottleneck. so i soaked the label off a coricidin bottle of cold medicine, put it on my finger and just played open. i'd tune it to an open tuning and then i just figured out how to do it. i just taught myself. >> jimmy: people don't know
slide guitar it is a glass or metal, right? you can do metal as well. and you put on your finger. >> mm-hmm. >> jimmy: your ring finger? >> well, later i found out it should have been my ring finger. so i could have had more control, i was used to kind of flipping the bird a lot in l.a. >> jimmy: how rock 'n roll. yeah, yeah, yeah. we're going to have to pixelate that. but either way, it's bonnie raitt. we have to show that. no, it's a famous middle finger. you'll see later in the song probably. but the -- and you put on one finger and then one finger goes behind it? >> yeah. i'm trying to show you without doing that. so i'm gonna block it like this. i hold it on with -- i hold it on with these two fingers. but -- and you just move it around and people think you're cool. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i think my favorite is, i think, "sleepwalk." >> oh, yeah. >> jimmy: with santo and johnny. >> yes, exactly. god, this guy's like an encyclopedia. >> jimmy: no, it's like -- [ imitates slide guitar ] >> yeah, exactly. >> jimmy: god, that just makes me weep. [ light laughter ]
it does. a lot of things make me cry. >> i will tell you, it's really easy to play slide. >> jimmy: really? >> really easy to play slide. i shouldn't say that. >> jimmy: can i get a lesson form bonnie raitt? i would -- please. are you kidding me? >> oh, man. such a piece of cake. >> jimmy: i would pay you a million bucks. that's unbelievable. i got to say, you know -- of course, i'm a fan of yours. i grew up in upstate new york, too. so i knew a lot of you through that scene. yeah. and then, i -- "nick of time" i bought that cd for me because everyone was buying it. that was the thing you had to have. and then, my mom just fell in love with it. and she kept singing "i can't make you love me." >> oh, beautiful. >> jimmy: and it's beautiful. but then, i go, "wait, her and my dad having problems?" [ laughter ] >> yeah. >> jimmy: but then -- but, i think it's because she thought that she could really sing that one, belt that one. that was like an anthem. she would do it at parties. that would be her move. and so, like, "all right, everybody. everyone sit down. i'm going to sing bonnie raitt." >> so sweet. >> jimmy: i would go, "oh, my god." >> that is so sweet. [ jimmy singing off key ] ♪ i turn out the light and i go, "oh, mom, please, don't do this." >> i've seen your mom. that's pretty cool. >> jimmy: that's right. you've seen her. she's been on the show. i forgot about that. but then, i realize she's just
i mean, i don't know if you saw our show. we had justin vernon on, bon iver and he came on and he sang "i can't make you love me" and mixed it with "nick of time." >> i know, i got -- the next day, we were in the studio and i didn't see your live show. which i usually do because we get on the tour bus and you are on just as we finish the meet and greet. >> jimmy: you watch the show on the tour bus? >> 85 days we just finished watching jimmy five days week. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: yes! that just made my year. i love it. >> you know -- so, somebody gave it to me the next morning. by the time i woke up, it was in my -- you know, the connection to video of it was incredible. >> jimmy: it's a beautiful version of it. >> justin did a great version. and then, thanks to you and thanks to him doing that, we hooked up and talked on the phone. and we are going to be collaborating on something, i hope. >> jimmy: no way? >> yeah, yeah. >> jimmy: can you do it here? can you bring it here? [ cheers and applause ] >> it would be great to. >> jimmy: we would love it so much. congrats on this record. >> thank you so much. >> jimmy: and gosh, come back whenever you want to. we love you. >> thank you. thank you.
