Steve Earle’s Washington Square Serenade

Interview + Performance

Friday, August 16, 2013

Country rocker Steve Earle tells Kurt about how his move from Nashville to New York City inspired his album Washington Square Serenade. “I’ve obviously missed the ‘live fast and leave a good-looking corpse’ thing," says Earle, "So as I get older ... I’d rather be one of those old commies in a wheelchair that run over [your] foot on Bleecker street.”
