Ben Greenman & Swamp Dogg

Interview

Friday, May 07, 2010

Ben Greenman's book, Please Step Back, now out in paperback, appears to be a biography of the 1970s soul and funk legend Rock Foxx. But Foxx is totally imaginary. So Greenman teamed up with a real-life funk legend, Swamp Dogg, to release one of Rock Foxx's songs. Greenman and Swamp Dogg tell Kurt about their surprising collaboration.
