“At some point, rock and roll became more intelligent…” Richard Thompson joins hosts David C. Gross and Tom Semioli to discuss his new autobiography BEESWING: LOSING MY WAY AND FINDING MY VOICE 1967-1975 – available now on Algonquin Books. Richard Thompson's widely beloved early work within the band Fairport Convention revived British folk traditions, and his duet albums and performances with Linda Thompson are legendary. His songs have been covered by Elvis Costello, David Byrne, Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, and REM, among others.
