You may know Wynn from his work with The Dream Syndicate, a band that–along with REM and the Replacements–practically invented the American indie rock scene of the 1980s. Or maybe you tuned in when he played on the Late Show with David Letterman earlier this year.
In 25 years, Wynn has released at least that many albums and has seen over 300 of his songs recorded. He has been prominently featured in Rolling Stone, Mojo, Uncut, Entertainment Weekly, People, The Los Angeles Times, New York Times and countless other publications all over the world.
I took a few minutes to talk with Michael Gomoll about the Joey’s Song project and Steve’s involvement. Mike told me, “I wrote Steve directly because I am a fan [of his] and Joey’s story hit home with him. I have only found a couple artists with a more direct tie to seizure disorders, most are just moved by our story. But really, we reached out to Steve because he is a music legend and Steve said yes.”
