New lead guitarist Chris Masterson debuts on 3/1 for Conan O'Brien
Chris Masterson, former guitar player for Jack Ingram, will replace Brad Rice in the Son Volt line-up.Brad has been tapped to join Keith Urban on the road and will of course be missed. Chris joins Son Volt on March 1 for Late Night with Conan O’Brien and will also be on all future dates. As you see in this picture, Brad (left) and Chris (right) are old pals so the transition should be seamless. They even have matching Dusenberger DRW Ronnie Wood guitars! As he did on Son Volt's 2005 European Tour, James Welbourne (Pernice Brothers) will handle lead guitar for the WXPN gig and other events before Chris joins on 3/1.
