In case you missed it! I’m so proud to share my profile on Lowell George from Oxford American’s new Southern Music Issue. Lowell is beyond a paradox and writing about him proved hilarious and sad in equal measure. Check it out if that seems like your cup of, well, literally anything intoxicating. And I earnestly hope that discerning music fans with the means will consider checking out the whole issue and picking up a copy. The print version comes with a CD!

Our vices, he seems to say, pull us like the moon pulls the tide. You give in to them finally not because you want to, or don’t want to, but because your vices are who you are. This is sad, yes, because your vices will eventually kill you, probably sooner than later. On the other hand, it’s not so bad, because you will have lived as Lowell George seems to have believed was appropriate: viscerally, manically, swallowing whatever is the human equivalent of the forty million krill the average blue whale ingests on a daily basis. Lowell George was a whale of a man.
