Greg Lake Gone- Affairs of the Heart(break)

Greg Lake has passed away at age 69, from cancer. His angelic voice, heard here on my Q102 Dallas radio show in 1992, now joins real angels for eternal praise.

R.E.M.- Losing My Religion 4-28-92

This slightly slower all-acoustic performance by R.E.M. of "Losing My Religion" at the Capital Plaza Theater in Charleston WV in April 1992, replete with melancholy solo violin, may be my favorite version, thanks to the Mountain Stage...

This live R.E.M. performance outdoors in the English countryside of "Half a World Away" in Summer 1995 serves as an appetizer for the upcoming rockumentary here In the Studio for the parent album Out of Time's twenty-fifth anniversary coming December 12. -Redbeard

John Mellencamp-Jack and Diane-Rehearsal 12-91

Christmas 1991 John Mellencamp rehearsing his band in his garage, literally, thus this performance of "Jack and Diane" is absolutely live, no overdubs.

"Mysterious Ways" in New York City's original Yankee Stadium in August 1992 on the U2 Achtung Baby tour

Bruce Springsteen & the E St Band- Independence Day- Atlanta 9-30-78

Maybe one of the reasons that Bruce Springsteen scored his first #1-seller in 1980 for the double album The River is because he had been road-testing some of the material in concert for years, such as this performance of "Independence Day"in 1978.

Bryan Adams-House Arrest-Vancouver March 1992

Bryan Adams and his great band at the conclusion of my interview on the eve of his Waking Up the Neighbours tour March 1992 knocking out "House Arrest" at Little Mountain Sound studio with a very appreciative group of radio station guests. But he did not retain the right to remain silent.

Chris Whitley-Living With the Law- Dallas 7-91

Although Chris Whitley's birth certificate listed Houston Texas as his birthplace, by the time the eclectic modern bluesman's untimely death in 2005 at age 45, Chris had lived all over the world. Sensing a rare authenticity and smoldering passion upon the release of his major label debut Living With the Law in Summer 1991...

Lynyrd Skynyrd-Woman of Mine-Memphis 10-30-73

"Woman of Mine" by Lynyrd Skynyrd is one of only two Leon Wilkeson collaborations with lyricist/ singer Ronnie Van Zant, but had it not been performed live in Ardent Studio in Memphis on October 30, 1973 during a promotional broadcast on Memphis radio station WMC-FM, there is a real high probability that we would never have known of its existence...

Boston-Hyperspace Pedal Blues-Tom Scholz

Irrefutable proof of why Tom Scholz of the band Boston had to move from his apartment house in Watertown , MA .Turn it up as loud as your gear can go . -Redbeard
