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”. Just look […]

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. After three consecutive million-sellers in as many years, the British foursome […]

Sting- The Last Ship, pt 1

Here In the Studio  we were both honored and thrilled in Fall 2013  to be able to share Sting hosting a very personal discussion of his family history, centered in the shipyard of the Northern England seaport city of Walls End/ Newcastle, where “your casket is sealed with a riveter’s gun…” and retold as fable as […]

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 […]

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 […]

A&M Records 50th Anniversary pt1

No one would be surprised to find that A&M Records, the most successful independent American label, headquartered in Hollywood no less, had the majority of their pop and jazz music successes come from U.S. recording artists, starting with Herb Alpert himself (the “A” in A&M), Burt Bacharach, The Carpenters, and Sheryl Crow. But curiously the […]
