There are countless stories of celebrities, musicians such as Steve Earle, sports figures, politicians, etc. who basically made a concerted effort to throw their success, wealth and health away with both hands only to make some manner of comeback. Then we are supposed to stand up and cheer. But, I have zero sympathy, empathy or interest in such people. (I did like Steve Earle and cannot ever get enough of Copperhead Road.) If I or anyone else had done what Steve Earle did to himself, I'd be living under a bridge or broken down car, or something - begging on a street corner. But, Mr. Earle can do NPR. There are all kinds of talent that each person has. Its unfortunate that singing and writing tunes - or catching, hitting or throwing a ball will, if done well enough, buy you more second acts than most people will ever get.
So talented, so underrated in the mainstream. But so are all the real true musical geniuses. Never here them on the radio. Yes I will confess he is my favorite liberal. I have very different political idea's than him but I love this man. Peace be with you my brother.
