Hot Walker by Tom Russellon May 1, 2012 at 6:27 pm
Hot Walker is an oral history that takes you from the 1940′s to currant day America, through music, musicians, poetry, and the beat writers of the 1950′s such as Jack Kerouac and Charles Bukowski.
Join Tom Russell as he takes you on a journey through a lost America when freedom was legal, and music was more than just background noise for a prefabricated life style.
Hear the the actual voices of Charles Bukowski, Jack Kerouac, Lenny Bruce, Dave Van Ronk, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, and many more.
Tom Russell is a graduate from the University of California, with a master’s degree in Sociology of Law (criminology). In 1969, he spent a year teaching in Ibadan, Nigeria during the Biafran War. He has also lived in Spain, Norway, and played music at a circus in Puerto Rico. Later in the 1970′s he began his career as a musician.
This is a man who has truly lived and has come to understand the world as few have. This is his masterpiece (my opinion) that laments an incredible time in America that has long since passed. This is Hot Walker.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
