Write Us A Song, Mr.Guitar Man

After deciding to learn to play the guitar and perform in six months, with the help of everyone from Johnny Marr to Roger McGuinn, the adventures chronicled in his Guitar Man, Will Hodgkinson now tackles the challenge of song writing. This time, he’ll seek advice from many others, including Ray Davies, Keith Richards, XTC’s Andy Partridge, Richard Hawley and Chip Taylor, who gave us “Wild Thing” at the age of 22. Hodgkinson’s Song Man: A Melodic Adventure sounds every bit as exciting as his debut.
