John Roderick is the front man for indie rock group The Long Winters and has worked on projects with bands like Death Cab For Cutie, The Decemberists and most recently did guest vocals on recent TSOYA guest Jonathan Coulton’s new album ‘Artificial Heart’ on the track “Nemeses.”

John talks with us about the influence on him that was ZZ Top’s masterpiece -- Give Me All Your Lovin’ -- and how it may have been the catalyst to a career in music instead of one in law.
