Doobie Brothers- Minute by Minute- Michael McDonald, Pat Simmons, Tom Johnston, John Hartman

Considerable assumptions, half truths, and flat out wrong fantasies remain in the conventional wisdom surrounding the making of Minute by Minute by the Doobie Brothers, one of the Seventies’ most popular albums, so much so that for the story of that #1-selling, four Grammy Award-grabbing Album of the Year 1978, we gathered four Doobie Brothers […]

Rolling Stones-Beggars Banquet- Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Bill Wyman

Writing on AllMusic.com, one of our most trusted rock writers Richie Unterberger refers to the Rolling Stones‘ 1967 album Their Satanic Majesties Request  as “… a fascinating anomaly in the group’s discography.” Four significant things occurred to explain in part why the follow up in late 1968, Beggars Banquet,  sounds so completely different: 1) Stones […]

John Mellencamp- Uh Huh 30th Anniversary

 When John Mellencamp’s third major label album yelded three Top Twenty hits in 1982 including “Hurt So Good” (#2) followed by his first #1, “Jack and Diane”, only two entities were as equally relieved as John: his ambitious English manager and his long suffering US record company. The former had negotiated John’s record deal as […]

YES- 90125- Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin, Alan White, Tony Kaye

After experiencing YES  performing in the round on a revolving stage in Fall 1978 in Memphis, I distinctly recall thinking that this was the best way to see any band larger than a quartet. At the time YES  consisted of musicians with exceptional “chops” including YES co-founding singer/ bass player the late Chris Squire, guitarist […]

J.J.Cale No Longer Livin’ on Tulsa Time

“He was our guy,” Lynyrd Skynyrd guitarist Gary Rossington told me about songwriter J.J.Cale in my December 2000 interview,” kinda our ‘go to’ guy for songs back then.” For over four decades Cale, the Tulsa-based songwriter who passed away overnight at the age of 74, was the ‘go to’ guy for some of rock’n’roll’s biggest […]

Mick Jagger Doing 70 in a 50 Zone

“You live long enough and you all will get there. If you’re lucky, ” chuckled his band mate Keith Richards in my most recent Rolling Stones interview. As impossible as it may seem to those of us who still recall the actual moment in 1965 when we first heard “I Can’t Get No Satisfaction” on […]

Toy Matinee-Last Plane Out-Dallas 1990

This one haunts me. Believe me, I am far from being alone in the admiration and appreciation of the obvious musical talent of singer/songwriter Kevin Gilbert, first demonstrated in Summer 1990 with the collaboration with pop producer Patrick Leonard as Toy Matinee. Gilbert had been a mainstay in the late ’80s singer/songwriter L.A. brat pack […]

Chris Whitley-Poison Girl-Dallas 7-91

This is about as unadorned and seminal as music gets: the dearly departed Chris Whitley in July 1991 outdoors in Dallas Texas under a tent on the lawn with no stage, no monitors, tiny PA,  accompanied only by several ancient Depression-era guitars and dobro with warped necks going in and out of tune. Chris was […]

Little Feat-Spanish Moon-Skin It Back-Dallas 11-20-88

For over twenty years, my Dallas/Ft.Worth radio station Q102 conducted what grew to become the largest annual radio blood drive in America, thanks to the incredible humanity of our loyal listeners and the free concerts we awarded them with such stars as the late Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble, the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Bonnie Raitt, […]
