Invaluable for aspiring song writers
I just enjoy the heck out of these interviews. The guy interviewing is top notch. You have done your homework! I agree with Campbell on that one. These artists are folks have found joy in their lives playing music while being good friends and family on this lonely rock. I’d love to hear Delbert McClinton, another Texas legend. Thank you Texas! He’s getting pretty old so you might get to it. I saw him open for the Stones in Dallas in ‘07. His memoir came out a few weeks ago.
Thoughtful, informed questions. You can tell Campbell--and your other interview subjects--appreciate that. So does this listener. Look forward to lots more interviews about craft with musicians and others.
This podcast helped me so much .
