 Guy Charles Clark        USA        1941-2016

 

Guy Clark (...)

along with

Townes Van Zandt,

Jerry Jeff Walker

and others

patented the rugged,

imagistic brand

of narrative-rich songwriting

that became associated

with the Texas troubadour

movement

of the 1970s and ’80s

 

(...)

 

Mr. Clark’s

recordings

never received

much airplay

on mainstream radio,

but his treasury of songs,

including

“L.A. Freeway,”

an FM radio favorite

as recorded in 1973

by Mr. Walker,

was as indelible

as that of anyone working

in the Americana idiom

in the last decades

of the 20th century.
