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.
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.

After winning a cult following with his first three albums—the last two, including the highly regarded Late for the Sky , featured instrumentalist David Lindley—Browne had million-selling hits with The Pretender and the live album Running on Empty ; the title tracks from both recordings are among his best-known songs. His musical style ranged from romantic folk-rock ballads to up-tempo rock and reggae.
