Country rocker Steve Earle tells Kurt about how his move from Nashville to New York City inspired his album Washington Square Serenade. “I’ve obviously missed the ‘live fast and leave a good-looking corpse’ thing," says Earle, "So as I get older ... I’d rather be one of those old commies in a wheelchair that run over [your] foot on Bleecker street.”
