Peter Case: “Just Hanging On”
Peter Case first made a name for himself in the early 80′s as the frontman of The Plimsouls, an L.A.-based pop rock band. And in the mid-eighties, Case recorded under his own name, enlisting the help of such notables as T-Bone Burnett, John Hiatt, and Roger McGuinn.
Case’s memoir, As Far As You Can Get Without a Passport, was published in 2006, and just last year, Case’s album Let Us Now Praise Sleepy John was nominated for a Grammy award.
John Case dropped by KUT last month. Of the tunes he performed, this one, ‘Just Hanging On,’ is perhaps the best example of Case’s wonderfully insightful storytelling style.
