Chances are you have been affected by an artist that burned out, rather than faded away; the bright promise of a star that quickly emitted too much light.

Fourteen episodes later Will Newsome, the guitarist for that band, sits down with us for an epic two part discussion on life, the business, and his film that moved him, “Eddie and the Cruisers”.
