Journalist, publicist, manager, author and Grammy winning record producer Tamara Saviano joins us to discuss her friend, the subject of her new book Without Getting Killed or Caught: The Life and Times of Guy Clark.
Tamara talks about her favorite Guy Clark album ‘Dublin Blues’, how it illustrates two of the key relationships in Guy’s life - his wife (and fellow songwriter) Susanna and singer/songwriter Rodney Crowell. We talk about how songwriters use music to say to each other what they can’t always say in conversation, Guy’s legacy in Americana music, why Guy embraced co-writing and collaborating with young writers to the end, and his uncommonly direct way of scoring cocaine at gigs.
