Paul Thorn has shared a stage with
John Prine and Bonnie Raitt, and he shared an ambulance with Roberto Duran on
the way to a hospital, where both were stitched up after a bloody fight when the
celebrated singer-songwriter was a professional boxer.
We missed connections Sunday with our scheduled guest, which turned into an
opportunity to replay one of the most-colorful interviews we've ever done on The
Ringside Boxing Show.
Enjoy this lively conversation with the Tupelo, Mississippi performer whose
songbook includes, "It's a great day for me to whup somebody's ass."
The Paul Thorn interview is preceded by an analysis of the 85-second
Jacobs-Quillin fight by Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid and John J. Raspanti, who
also psychoanalyze Tyson Fury, and debate Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry's
assessment that Fury has some vocal chops.
