Catch Gerald Grohmann interview with Hugh Cornwell on KRUU FM.

Hugh Cornwell is a British Musician, Singer Songwriter who had huge success during the eighties with the band The Stranglers being one of the premier bands in Britain alongside bands like the police and the clash. Despite their huge success in Europe scoring 23 top 40 singles and Albums the Stranglers remained largely unknown in the US. A phenomenon Hugh explained with their reluctance doing the extensive touring that would be necessary to become really popular in the US.

Hugh left the Stranglers in 1990 pursuing a solo career.  Even so he could not reclaim the success of the Stranglers, he remains as one off the most revered and respected musicians on the British island.

Since about five years Hugh is touring the US regularly and I was lucky enough to catch him on his last tour in Minneapolis. I regard myself extremely lucky for this opportunity to have this conversation and I am sharing it with you tonight in my show. So join me for this one hour with one of the most fascinating Musicians on today's Music scene.
