Loudon Wainwright III: Profiles from the Illustrations

Loudon Wainwright III, 2012. By Travis Simpkins

     In speaking about his musical life, Loudon Wainwright summed it up enough to leave little room or need for minute details. He said, "The first album came out in 1970 and the career's been up and down ever since." That's Loudon. Ever-funny, ever-humble. If you feel impelled to read further about his exploits, feel free to read his more lengthy bio here. In the meantime, I'll just let the man's music speak for itself...
