About this Episode

Tony Joe White made trance like country blues with his signature ominous growl and slithering electric guitar for over 50 years. While many only know him for his novelty hit Poke Salad Annie (which was covered by a guy named Elvis), he also wrote for Dusty Springfield and Tina Turner, and the likes of Bob Dylan was a fan. Zach was fortunate to speak with Tony Joe at a hotel diner in Hollywood back in September about his storied career as a songwriter, guitarist, and touring musician.
