Austin Delone

Austin DeLone is a bit of an underappreciated rock & roll pioneer, a driving force in the back-to-basics movement that became known as pub rock in the early '70s as the leader of the band Eggs Over Easy. During the '60s, DeLone floated through several colleges, spending time at Harvard and the New England Conservatory of Music and Berkeley, meeting guitarist Jack O'Hara in the latter city. The pair started playing music, then headed to New York where they started Eggs Over Easy.

Following their breakup, DeLone settled in Northern California and started gigging as a session musician -- his disciples Nick Lowe and Elvis Costello were happy to play alongside him, and he appeared on Lowe's 1990 album Party of One and played live with Costello in 1987 -- playing local shows and taking jobs as a sideman. In 1991 he released his solo debut, DeLone at Last, and 25 years later he teamed up with guitarist Bill Kirchen -- a fellow pub rocker and Commander Cody alumnus -- to release the duet album Transatlanticana in 2016. That same year, Eggs Over Easy received a long overdue retrospective compilation called Good 'n' Cheap: The Eggs Over Easy Story on YepRoc.
