Joanne Shaw Taylor Impressed Stevie Wonder By Accident
Taylor tells MusicRadar: "It was kind of choreographed that I was going to hit my pedal and get some sustain, and as soon as I did that, I would walk towards Annie.
"I did it: hit the pedal. But as I'm walking towards her I realised the pedal hadn't kicked in. I wasn't going to turn around – thousands of people were watching – so I just went with it.
"Stevie sent his drum tech to find me to say that he loved my clean bluesy sound. Of course, I claimed it was intentional!" The incident had another side-effect.
