#25 – Richard Barone – Glow

Richard Barone

Richard Barone fronted the new wave band the Bongos in the early eighties, then went on to a critically-acclaimed solo career, which Rolling Stone dubbed “chamber pop.”  He took several years off to work on projects for other people.  He also wrote a book called Frontman – Surviving the Rock n’ Roll Myth.  Now, he’s set to release his first studio album in 16 years, Glow.  Icon Fetch talks with Barone about working with legendary producer Tony Visconti (David Bowie, T.Rex), his new toy – the Digital Les Paul, and writing songs with legendary tunesmith Paul Williams.  Click below for the Richard Barone interview.
