Bad Company "Bad Company"- Dallas/ Ft. Worth 7-10-13

ZZ Top- Lagrange- Castle Donington, Derbyshire UK 8-17-85

One of the priceless pieces of twenty-five years of rock history, almost criminally tossed in a dumpster by the new owners of Q102 Dallas/Ft Worth in August 1998, was a tape cartridge that I had dubbed from a cassette containing a live medley…

Soul Asylum " I Will Still Be Laughing" live 4-98

Talking Heads- Take Me to the River- NYC Central Park 8-80

I have long suffered from chronic foot in mouth disease. You know, that person with unbridled enthusiasm in social situations who just does not know quite what to say, so invariably says the wrong thing. Case in point: the first time that I…

Peter Frampton- Black Hole Sun- Austin 10-18-11

Way way back to even the eponymous Humble Pie  album in 1969 when barely out of his teens, I thought that Peter Frampton's lyrical, almost jazzy lead guitar figures set him apart from so many of his less imaginative peers, and it has been…

Rolling Stones- Miss You-London Hyde Park July 2013

Jethro Tull "Locomotive Breath"- Zurich dressing room 1989

Jethro Tull's singer/ songwriter/ flautist Ian Anderson ( left ) returns here In the Studio next week for the band's big fiftieth anniversary, so this should prime the pump with another angle on all of that material. Here's another of the rare…

John Fogerty "Born on the Bayou" May 1997 rehearsal

One of the greatest honors I have had in over 45 years of rock radio was interviewing John Fogerty, then introducing him and his ace band to an adoring small private audience at band rehearsal May 1997 in Burbank, performing the Creedence Clearwater…

Simple Minds- See the Lights- Sydney 12-7-12

Even turned upside down under and standing on their heads, those "Simple Boys"( as the local pensioners would refer to them back home in Scotland ) can still make a big noise, as evidenced here in a very rare December 2012 Sydney concert recording…

Rod Stewart- Rhythm of My Heart- LA Troubadour 4-25-13

Five years ago this week a remarkable musical event transpired as singing superstar Sir Rod Stewart blew minds, kisses,  and a few monitor speakers with the ill-timed mic drop by surprising everybody by packing his big thirteen-piece band onto…
