"It really captures who Gregg is," said Don Was, producer of the "Southern Blood" album that is set for release on Sept. 8. "I think there was a tacit understanding that this album was an attempt to tie up the loose ends of his life."
"In the most general sense, it represents any kind of dissent from the status quo, from convention," he said by phone from his home in southern California. "It's an attempt to improve your own life or the lives of many people. ...Wherever there is a culture of rebellion, there is great music to go along with it."
