Jackson Browne reveals that he has tested positive for the coronavirus. Jackson Browne was suspicious that something was not right when he started feeling ill in recent weeks. The Rock Hall of Fame inductee tells Rolling Stone that he has tested positive for the coronavirus and is currently recuperating at his Los Angeles home. That means not going anywhere, not getting into contact with anybody, not seeing anybody. How are you feeling? And stay self-quarantined. I quarantined immediately upon feeling sick.
The Lantern Tour II
T he morning after our interview I get a call from Jackson Browne. I stare at my phone in bleary-eyed confusion, trying to remember if one of the all-time great singer-songwriters had let slip anything scandalous he might be eager to recant, but when I pick up I hear his warm Californian tones overflowing with enthusiasm. Browne made his name in the Seventies as a writer of deeply introspective songs about love, death and desire. On the island they also teamed up with members of the Haitian roots band Lakou Mizik. The problems are formidable. Browne is fiercely passionate about the environment. He lives in an off-grid ranch supported by wind and solar power, and since has banned plastic bottles from his tours. It could almost have been written today, although Browne sadly points out our situation is now even more dangerous.
Tal Wilkenfeld on Tour
From his self-titled debut No. It's that ability that made him eminently coverable in the '70s: Browne's songs have been recorded by everyone from the Eagles to The Byrds to Nico. But Browne's always been the rightful presenter of his own work. With all genuflection to the Beach Boys , no other act may qualify more as an ambassador of s Southern California; whether onstage or on the page, his mellow, mature approach to untying spiritual knots has almost no match. No matter the political climate or your own emotional headspace, there's a Browne song for your state of mind. Feeling introspective? Agitated by the daily news cycle?
