The Fugitive: Slow Talking with John Hiatt

Chris Bourke, Rip It Up (New Zealand), April 1991


JOHN HIATT can't seem to relax. He's in his Auckland hotel room — at the Hyatt, naturally — getting his photo taken. His worn, buttoned-up jean jacket has more character than anything else in the bland, pastel shaded room. Even Hiatt's not giving anything away: he sits poker-faced until the camera clicks, then releases a little smile.
