Ideas that add up #157

From Robert Johnson to Bon Iver, the mythologising of the lone man and his guitar has a long tradition, but few stories are as remarkable as Seasick Steve’s. “Hobos are people who move around looking for work”, he once said; “tramps are people who move around and don’t work, and bums are people who don’t move and don’t work. I’ve been all three.”
