The Rev. James Leg is better known as John Wesley Myers, the frontman and piano player for the heavy blues-rock duo Black Diamond Heavies. He recently released his debut solo album, entitled Solitary Pleasure. Having just completed three months touring Europe, Myers is in the middle of his first solo tour of the United States. It stops at Davey’s Uptown tomorrow, December 13, with opener the Filthy 13. Myers took a moment to speak with us by phone about what differentiates his solo material from his work with the Black Diamond Heavies.
