del Amitri-I Won’t Take the Blame-Dallas May 1990

Two intrepid Scots, lead singer/guitarist Justin Currie and vocalist/ accordion player Iain Harvie of the Glasgow band del Amitri, showed up one blazing hot Friday afternoon to play out on the patio during my Friday afternoon remote broadcast in suburban Dallas in May 1990. Nary a word of complaint to us Texans, even though I […]

Billy Joel- 52nd Street

 William Martin Billy Joel has sold more albums in the U.S. than any pop/rock singer except for Elvis Presley. Superstar musicians in that rarified league ( and many more only pretenders to it ) always surround themselves with gaggles of managers, “minders”, assistants, agents, and promoters , and the size of the entourage doubles when […]

Genesis- Genesis- Phil Collins,Mike Rutherford,Tony Banks

Between 1980 and 1986, the British trio Genesis released a series of four consecutive hit albums, each more successful than its predecessor by as many as five times. Because drummer/singer/songwriter Phil Collins had a parallel solo career take off during that time, reading the critical reviews from many respected music writers in this period imply […]

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 […]

Live-Selling the Drama- NewYork City March 1997

When the string of passionate, dynamic songs on the 1994 Throwing Copper album by Pennsylvania band Live opened up like the petals on a rose bud, I was really impressed. Not since the R.E.M. days of Murmur and Reckoning had I sat up to pay attention to such smart, purposeful songs played seamlessly. The involvement […]

Huey Lewis & the News-Sports

In spite of his all-American boyish good looks and refreshingly matter-of-fact charm, upon closer inspection you will find in Huey Lewis‘ life ( born Hugh Cregg III ) a series of contradictions. Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Huey claims in our classic rock interview to have “grown up as a lower […]

Bad Company-Paul Rodgers,Mick Ralphs,Simon Kirke-pt 2

Last episode we learned that Bad Company lead singer/songwriter Paul Rodgers, guitarist/songwriter Mick Ralphs, and drummer Simon Kirke all agreed that being the first band signed to Led Zeppelin’s Swan Song label, as well as sharing management with them, was advantageous in the immediate popularity of their 1974 debut as well as the 1975 follow […]

Bad Company Debut- Paul Rodgers, Mick Ralphs, Simon Kirke

To this day I clearly remember the day that the British band Bad Company released that much-touted debut in May 1974, precisely because of the pedigrees of the still young but by now veteran rockers Paul Rodgers and Simon Kirke ex-Free, Mick Ralphs from Mott the Hoople, and Boz Burrell from a stint with King […]

The Posies-Dream All Day -1993 Dallas

The main songwriters/singers/guitarists of Bellingham WA band The Posies, Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow, spent so much time in Memphis as neo-Big Star members that I think of them as honorary members of that incredibly rich music community. I was pleased when Auer and Stringfellow performed this live acoustic version of the song “Dream All […]
