INTERVIEW: Hamilton Bohannon on Good Day Atlanta (8/1/17)

If you’ve ever checked out the 1969 Motortown Revue Live album featuring Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight & The Pips, The Temptations, and more, then you’ve heard the Bohannon sound.  The entire show was backed by Motown drummer and bandleader Hamilton Bohannon (billed on the album as Bohannon and The Motown Sound), who also backed Diana Ross and The Supremes, Marvin Gaye, and many other Hitsville acts.  In the 1970s, he’d start releasing his own albums, scoring some big disco and R&B hits which are still sampled by artists to this day.

Mr. Bohannon was recently honored by his hometown of Newnan, Georgia, which re-named the street on which he was born “Hamilton Bohannon Drive.”  And I was honored to sit down with Mr. Bohannon and chat with him about his life and legendary career.
