John Sebastian takes us through the creation of his greatest records in the new Uncut, out now.



The singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist describes the making of his solo albums, as well as those by The Lovin’ Spoonful, The Even Dozen Jug Band and The Doors’ Live In New York, which he played harmonica on.

“We never did anything the way anyone else did,” Sebastian tells Uncut.

“I’ve always felt like what I was doing wasn’t that heavy… All the time we were just trying to write good songs and have some fun.”

The new Uncut, dated June 2014, is out now.
