Eminent Hipsters, published by Viking. The book is split between reminiscences of growing up trapped in suburban “Squaresville” in North Jersey with only books and the radio providing much needed input and a grumpy latter day tour diary. Luckily our conversation, recorded at The Free Library in Philadelphia, deals mostly with the former. Tales of late night radio listening, reading science fiction and then on to Bard College where he met his Steely Dan collaborator Walter Becker. There is much solo and Steely Dan music referenced as well in this wide-ranging interview.
