John Waite-Best-No Brakes Best Of

When you aggregate the many high points from the recorded body of work of John Waite over the last four decades of popular music, his well-known world class singing voice is readily on display, but what emerges is a dedicated, well-read, mature songwriting craftsman who has maintained the highest standards over a lengthy career. Whether […]

Steve Forbert-Rock While I Can Rock-Dallas

You can dock me points for the minimalist recorded sound, but Steve Forbert‘s “Rock While I Can Rock” scores big time in the attitude column now even more than when he performed this in 1992. Recorded live solo one man band right off the dance floor at Arlington Texas’ Baja Beach Club, ignore the radio […]

Triumph- Just a Game pt1- Rik Emmett, Gil Moore, Mike Levine

Not unlike Rush and Heart who preceded them, Triumph‘s Rik Emmett, Gil Moore, and Mike Levine couldn’t get arrested outside their native Toronto while waiting for a U.S. record label to swoop down like some great speckled bird and sign them. So these three intrepid rockers proceeded to question rock’s conventional wisdom and just do […]

Little Feat-Best pt 2- Bill Payne, Paul Barrere

In heading up possibly their best studio album Time Loves a Hero   in 1977, Little Feat‘s Bill Payne and Paul Barrere saved their beloved band from dysfunction but, by default, effectively edged out band founder Lowell George, in spite of being the most played Little Feat album on American radio. Songs in this part […]

Supertramp- Breakfast in America- Roger Hodgson

On the eve of Supertramp‘s international blockbuster Breakfast in America , none of us outside the Brit ex-pat band’s tight inner circle living in suburban Los Angeles had any reason to see it coming. Sure, their U.S. label patiently had given them the time to cook up something popular over the course of five albums […]

Pink Floyd-The Division Bell- David Gilmour, Nick Mason, Rick Wright

 Listening to this interview, one of the last ever with the late gentle and fragile original Pink Floyd keyboard player Richard Wright, you would have no indication of the circumstances under which we had this conversation. In mid-March 1994 I had been driven to a decommissioned Air Force base in the California desert at dusk, where […]

Van Halen-1984- Eddie & Alex Van Halen, Michael Anthony

To truly comprehend just how massively popular this album was, it helps if you actually write it out numerically: 12,000,000 copies of Van Halen‘s sixth album, 1984 , were sold in the U.S. alone in the three decades since it was released. Propelled by Van Halen’s very first #1 hit “Jump”, three million of those […]

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 […]
