“Hell” was the song that rocketed Tom Maxwell’s former band The Squirrel Nut Zippers to the top of the charts, but the success was short-lived.

After performances on late-night television shows and a tour with Neil Young, Maxwell parted ways with The Zippers. He traces the journey through the highs and lows of fame in his new book, Hell: My Life in the Squirrel Nut Zippers (Oyster Point Publishing/2014). Host Frank Stasio talks with Maxwell about his music and his new book.
