Craig Finn Hold Steady frontman plays acoustic

Hold Steady frontman performs songs from 'Clear Hearts, Full Eyes'

Craig Finn stopped by the Rolling Stone studios to perform some songs off his new solo record, Clear Hearts, Full Eyes. The tunes are quieter than his work with the Hold Steady. He also talked to us about why he wanted to do a solo record, some of his favorite solo releases (works by Lou Reed and Ron Wood were eagerly mentioned) and why despite the reference in his album's title, it is not a concept record about the TV show Friday Night Lights.
