Peter Guralnick has a new website, in which he is posting Youtube playlists for his book, Lost Highway (“an erratic, eccentric collection of video clips to accompany the book”), and in which he has taken it upon himself to interview himself, mostly in regards to a biography he’s writing on Sam Phillips:
The book is much more “personal” than any of my other books – I mean all of them are personal. All of them are intensely personal, because they represent what I care about and deeply believe. But here – in the book about Sam – I take on a personal role, because I was there for much of the last 25 years. I was there for many of the events. And I was there not strictly as a reporter (I’m never there strictly as a reporter) but in some other, less definable role.
