Loudon Wainwright III - Liner Notes: On Parents & Children, Exes & Excess, Death & Decay, & a Few of My Other Favorite Things

A revered singer, songwriter, and actor, Wainwright has recorded nearly thirty albums since the late 1960s. Many of his songs have an autobiographical inspiration, and his memoir fills in the details of what his lyrics have sketched. His story starts with his role as the son of a prominent journalist, and he creates a kind of dialogue by interweaving his memories with excerpts from his father’s Life magazine columns. He discusses his marriage to Kate McGarrigle and relationship with Suzzy Roche, and describes what it’s like to be the patriarch of one of the country’s premier musical dynasties. Full of stories of both family life and the music business, Wainwright’s spirited meditation on art and love is by turns funny and moving.
