Rocking On: Steve Smith ’73 and The Nakeds

There’s no slowing Steve Smith ’73 and his band, The Nakeds, who continue to blast out powerhouse R&B and rock ‘n’ roll tunes in southern New England. Now in its 46th year, the band has produced an album and three CDs, and has played with the likes of sax great Clarence Clemons and fellow Rhode Islander John Cafferty and his Beaver Brown Band. Listen in as Smith talks about his lifetime love of music, the changes in R&B sound over the decades, and his appreciation for a PC education.
