Jackson Browne on Warren Zevon, Lowell George, Bruce Springsteen, plastic water bottles, the souls of guitars and a whole lot of other stuff

This is our Jackson Browne show. Don’t be thrown by the bad phone connection in the first six minutes.

I had thought JB would talk to me for about 30 minutes. After an hour, he was still going strong.

Kudos to Betsy Kaplan for production work.

    Your show inspired me to purchase Warren Devon’s last recording. A great singer song writer.

    Thank you so much for that interview. I know every word to every Jackson Browne song. I wore our the grooves of my copy of the Pretender. It was a pleasure to hear the two if you in conversation, for an hour! To me, he is the model if what celebrity and show business ought to be. “I want to know what became if the changes we waited for love to bring, were they only the fitful dreams of some greater awakening, I’ve been aware of the time going by, they say in the end it is the blink of an eye, when the morning light comes steaming in, I’ll get up and do it again. Amen.”

    Especially liked his analysis of others’ writing methods and what it takes to figure out how to do someone else’s song.

      You have nothing better to do with yourself, Mark? That is so informative. Next time I need to dig up dirt on someone I’ll call you and hire your special services. But only after I do an extensive background check on you. Do you mind telling us you full name?

      No, I didn’t think so.

          I hate to break this to you Mr. Twain…but Mark Twain was a pen name for Samuel Clemens. Like Bill Katz/Bill Yo or whatever name he goes by…I suspect school was never too easy for you.

            Mr Z; My only admonishment for you is to stay away from lines of rhymes. It only reminds me of a writing workshop I once attended and a few of the participants sounded so bad that I actually felt sorry for them.

            Stay put in your field – and continue playing checkers.

    Mark, your comment led me to poke around through some stories about this — some stories say it happened, some say it didn’t, and there doesn’t seem to be anything conclusive. I don’t sanctify musicians — I like a lot of Browne’s work (especially “Lives in The Balance” — it keeps staying relevant), but that doesn’t earn him any special treatment. I can only hope the “incident” didn’t happen, but I guess I’ll never know.

    This blog has gone missing from the Courant Blog drop down. Is that their way of dropping a hint?
