RS Country have published a nice little interview with Steve Earle where he talks about the new Guy Clark tribute album he’s recorded with the Dukes due out the end of this week – we’ll have an AUK review any day now. He tells them: “It’s my fucking Guy Clark record, so I’ll do the ones that I was more personally connected to.” So there you go.
He talks about various things including Clark’s work ethic: “He got up every day and wrote. What I learned from Guy and Susanna more than anything else was that they call these things that artists do ‘disciplines’ for a reason. He wasn’t an angel; he had plenty of demons. But he found it necessary to work every day,” says Earle. “I discovered how much I learned from him in making a record like this.”” You can read the whole interview over at RS here.
