What a wonderful place to run into.... sure I should be outside digging potatoes or cutting the lawn, but I'm finding sites like this!
I'm headed back there to listen to Chip Taylor's Song by Song Autobiography. Who's Chip?
September 3, 2009 from WFUV - Some people get more than their fair share of the action. Chip Taylor emerged from a family loaded with talent — one brother became a famous geologist, while another is actor Jon Voight — and went on to become both a legendary gambler and the writer of classic songs such as "Wild Thing," "Angel of the Morning" and "Try (Just a Little Bit Harder)."
As you can imagine, he has stories to tell of his exploits at the track and on the road. As a performer in his own right, Taylor has become enormously popular overseas — and he certainly won over a live audience in WFUV's Studio-A. His latest project, Songs from a Dutch Tour, is a book and CD that acts like a song-by-song autobiography. In an hour-long session, Taylor gave us a personal tour of his rich and unpredictable career.
