Robbie-Robertson35027

Sirius XM Radio announced today that “Little Steven” Van Zandt’s Underground Garage and Outlaw Country channels will feature an extensive interview between two living legends:  founding member of The Band, Robbie Robertson, and E Street Band member/garage rock guru “Little Steven” Van Zandt.

“Robbie Robertson Week” will launch with the first segment of the in-depth interview between Robertson and Van Zandt on Thursday, November 24 at 4:00 pm ET on Little Steven’s Underground Garage, channel 21. The additional interview segments will air throughout the week onUnderground Garage and Outlaw Country, channel 60.

The event featured guests Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Muddy Waters, Van Morrison,Neil Diamond and many others.

“Robbie has had an amazing influence as a seminal Garage Rock guitar player with The Hawks and Bob Dylan, and as a songwriter with The Band. The Band pretty much invented and certainly popularized the entire Americana genre, changing rock music forever, influencing literally everybody,” said Little Steven. “That kind of music needed a home and it’s why I created Outlaw Country at SiriusXM, which includes three groups of artists; Country legends, Alternative Country artists, and Rock artists with a country influence. The archetype of this last genre was The Band, who, after changing music history, somehow found themselves in the twenty first century without a format. That is the great thing about SiriusXM. It provides the greatest music in history a permanent home.”
