Chris Isaak: Rocker, Crooner, Sketch Artist


Chris Isaak has had plenty of careers already - moody crooner of the multi-platinum hit Wicked Game, actor in his own TV show, 50's revivalist rocker. So is there a chance one day he'll be publishing a book of his original cartoons? Maybe. When I spoke with him for All Things Considered, I asked Chris what he likes to do while touring. He says he fills pages and pages - sketch pads and sketch pads - with "Addams-family-style" cartoons. One day, perhaps, he'll pull out the best ones for a book...

The conversation is posted above - give it a listen. And this Sunday you can catch Chris Isaak and his band live in performance at New Bedford's Zeiterion Theater.
