Jackson Browne and Cameron Crowe go way back. Some might think that “Somebody’s Baby” from the Fast Times soundtrack is where their relationship began. In reality, it goes back much further. Here’s an early 1974 interview that Cameron conducted at Jackson’s home for the L.A. Times between the release of Browne’s For Everyman and Late for the Sky albums. The normally press shy Browne talks about his early days in Orange County, setbacks, fame and that his best vocal performances are yet to come. I hope you like reading it as much as I liked transcribing it!
