Episode 19: Hanging On The Telephone - Jack Lee/The Nerves

Earlier this month, it was announced that at the end of last month, another rock and roll legend left us and ascended to the rock and roll heavens.

While this legend may fall into the often overlooked category we like to focus so much on here, it doesn’t make him any less of a legend. In fact, I think it makes him even more of a legend because he has that cool air of mystery floating about him. Jack Lee penned many great songs over his musical career, and while not all of them were big commercial successes, his songwriting and music styling have been hugely influential on many who have come after him.
