Collective Soul-Collective Soul 20th Anniversary-Ed Roland

The story of Collective Soul emerged a little more than twenty years ago from the basement of Stockbridge Georgia songwriter Ed Roland‘s parent’s basement. It is not the first time that a song demo such as “Shine” was recorded at home by an aspiring songwriter, only to escape and then find itself in search of […]


Deep Purple-Now What?! with Roger Glover

Hands down, Deep Purple‘s Now What?! was the album to beat in 2013 for “Comeback Album of the Year”. Not that the Fathers of Heavy Metal ever went away from touring the world these last years, but Now What?!  was their first new studio album in seven long years. Even before we heard anything, the […]


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 […]


Toad the Wet Sprocket-Hold Her Down 5-94

Now more than ever I wonder whether this  Santa Barbara CA band with the strong songs of singer/guitarist Glen Phillips could have been twice as popular if they had taken a name other than an obscure Monty Python comedy bit. As it stands, they still managed to sell over a million copies of their third […]

We just received word that Storm Thorgerson, the most prolific, most influential rock graphic artist ever, has passed away at age 69. Most widely known for his work with the Hipgnosis team in England for the long series of Pink Floyd covers, it’s a safe bet that you have enjoyed more of Thorgerson’s genius wrapped […]

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, […]


Great White-Rock Me-Anaheim CA-7-24-93

We received a nice note recently from Bobby Black at In the Studio Dallas/Ft.Worth affiliate KZPS who had dinner with Great White keyboard player/producer Michael Lardie. It seems that Lardie was reminiscing appreciatively about the positive impact that the support of my North Texas radio station KTXQ-Q102 had on their career at a crucial point […]
