Lynyrd Skynyrd- Essential pt 1-Gary Rossington, Ed King

One thing that has never been questioned about Southern Rock legends Lynyrd Skynyrd is their unassailable authenticity to this day.

Simple Minds-Best of the ’80s- Jim Kerr

Jim Kerr,March 1991- My Dallas/Ft.Worth radio station Q-102 promoted and hosted countless popular film premieres in the ’80s and ’90s which gave thousands of listeners the opportunity to see major motion pictures first and for free. I remember 25 years ago attending the one for the Brat Pack movie The Breakfast Club by the late John Hughes , which I so thoroughly enjoyed that I remained in the darkened theater at the film’s conclusion in order to read the closing credits . I distinctly remember a great song playing as the credits rolled , and I remained to the very end to see the title “Don’t You Forget About Me” by Simple Minds listed .

Lynyrd Skynyrd-Second Helping-Gary Rossington,Ed King

Sure, the Lynyrd Skynyrd legend inevitably circles back to their first album Pronounced   and the epic “Free Bird”, but don’t let revisionist history fool you: this April 1974 follow-up, Second Helping,  is the incredibly strong album which busted them wide open, & not just because of the rebel singalong “Sweet Home Alabama”.

Bad Company-Desolation Angels-Paul Rodgers,Mick Ralphs,Simon Kirke

Five years after their 1974 debut album made them a “super group”, there was real concern that Bad Company had augered in with a collective faceplant due to a dearth of strong material and sheer exhaustion from a non-stop cycle of recording and touring.

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 […]
