Folk singer Stan Rogers is remembered for his rich baritone voice on songs like "Northwest Passage" and "Barrett's Privateers," and for his tragically early death. But his brother and bandmate Garnet Rogers tells a gritty tale of bar fights, biker gangs, and bad behaviour in his new memoir of life on the road in the 70's and 80's, Night Driver: Travels With my Brother.

Speaking with Tom Power, Rogers opens up about life on the road with his brother.
