Mark Guerrero interviews legendary folksinger Ramblin' Jack Elliot. Ramblin' Jack has been called the son of Woody Guthrie and the father of Bob Dylan. He began singing and travelling in the early 1950s, was part of Bob Dylan's legendary Rolling Thunder Revue in 1975, and continues to tour and perform at age 87 in 2019. We talk about some of his experiences with Woody and Dylan and his encounters with Jack Kerouac, James Dean, Lead Belly, and Ringo Starr. Some of his and other related recordings are played. This is the first episode of my new show, Rock Doc Chronicles.
