Loudon Wainwright III's Liner Notes

This book has been out for awhile and I finished reading it a couple of months ago. It is terrific: frank, funny and intelligent just like his songs. Any fan of the great LWIII will love it.

Funny and blunt honest guy...I'm sure this is a great book, as you and Dennis below have said...

Loudon has, for a while, been workshopping "Surviving Twin"-a one-man stage show regarding his life & times and those of his father (http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/music/la-et-ms-loudon-wainwright-so...). A beautiful, heartfelt, painful and inspired performance.

Thanks for the link to that Todd...that would have to be one heck of a show...hopefully he'll take it on the road...
