Here’s what Gary Clark Jr. had to say about three of his most high-profile gigs of late.

On playing for Obama (at a White House tribute to the blues): “He explained that he’s from Chicago, so the blues is important to him. He thanked me for keeping it alive and seemed very appreciative. And he showed he knew his stuff later when he got up and sang ‘Sweet Home Chicago’ with everyone.”
