Chip Taylor: Song-By-Song Autobiography

Some people get more than their fair share of the action. Chip Taylor emerged from a family loaded with talent — one brother became a famous geologist, while another is actor Jon Voight — and went on to become both a legendary gambler and the writer of classic songs such as "Wild Thing," "Angel of the Morning" and "Try (Just a Little Bit Harder)."

As you can imagine, he has stories to tell of his exploits at the track and on the road. As a performer in his own right, Taylor has become enormously popular overseas — and he certainly won over a live audience in WFUV's Studio-A. His latest project, Songs from a Dutch Tour, is a book and CD that acts like a song-by-song autobiography. In an hour-long session, Taylor gave us a personal tour of his rich and unpredictable career.
