Loudon Wainwright III

Jerry Gilbert, ZigZag, February 1976

LOUDON WAINWRIGHT'S biggest paradox is his insistence that his values and lifestyle are no different from any man in the street: but his eccentricities are something else. He's been called the Charlie Chaplin of rock but the description he feels most comfortable with is a "post-psychedelic aristocratic beatnik".
