John Mellencamp-Rain on the Scarecrow- Dallas October 1991

He had no way of knowing of course, but when John Mellencamp used his first-hand knowledge of the crippling economic, climate-related, and legislative squeeze play that befell the independent American family farmer in the mid-1980s in the song “Rain on the Scarecrow”, he was writing about my maternal great-grandfather Frank Warford, who lived,...

Chris Isaak-You Owe me Some Kind of Love-Dallas 1986

It never ceases to amaze me just how much entertainment some musicians can coax out of a tiny guitar about the size of a ukelele and some brushes on a hand drum when you have a great song and a one-in-a-million voice like Chris Isaak. That’s all it took for him and percussionist...

Jackson Browne-Two of Me,Two of You-unreleased solo Los Angeles 1994

In February 1994  I had the pleasure to interview Jackson Browne again  in a Los Angeles recording studio, so shortly before the session we asked his manager if Jackson would oblige us with an acoustic performance. “No, probably not, he’s totally anal retentive and obsessive about any performance being perfect,” was the reply.”...

Ozzy Osbourne-I Don’t Know-Memphis April 1982

Ozzy Osbourne‘s first performance after the tragic airplane accident which killed his young gifted guitarist Randy Rhoads, his tour seamstress, and tour bus driver had the double weight of being a long-scheduled live radio broadcast to America.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse-Powderfinger-San Francisco 1986

Not since Robbie Robertson‘s “The Night They Drove Ol’ Dixie Down” had anyone written and sung ( in the first person, no less ) about the American antebellum South so richly, so believably as Neil Young and Crazy Horse with “Powderfinger”, originally on the 1979 essential Rust Never Sleeps album.
