Loudon Wainwright IIIcame to fame when Dead Skunk became a Top 20 hit in 1972. He had studied acting at Carnegie-Mellon University, but dropped out to partake in the Summer of Love in San Francisco, and wrote his first song in 1968 (Edgar, about a lobsterman in Rhode Island). His songs have since been recorded by Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash, Earl Scruggs, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, his son Rufus Wainwright, and Mose Allison, among others.
Released in 2014, Haven’t Got the Blues (Yet) is the 26th album in Wainwright’s long and illustrious career. It follows his acclaimed Older Than My Old Man Now album—“my death n’ decay opus,” as he calls it, and 2010’s Grammy Award-winning High Wide & Handsome.
In 2017, Wainwright published his memoir, Liner Notes (Blue Rider Press), which led to appearances on Fresh Air with Terry Gross and WTF with Marc Maron. The NY Times said the book “makes your heart wobble on its axis.”
