    Take This Tradition and Shove It - Experimentalist Eugene Chadbourne reworks country and jazz, sticks it to the KKK, makes guitars out of rakes and toasters -- and dreams of working with Willie Nelson

    Eugene Chadbourne plays the guitar. More precisely, he plays with the guitar. The 44-year-old musician and composer treats the instrument like his own personal romper room: His fingers scamper madly along the fretboard, teasing out atonal breaks in t...
