David Crosby of The Byrds has died at 81. The members of the original Byrds – singer/songwriter/electric 12-string guitar player Roger (Jim) McGuinn, singer/songwriter David Crosby, the talented but tortured late singer/songwriter Gene Clark, bass player Chris Hillman, & the late drummer Michael Clarke – were always unabashed in their acknowledgment of their influences, equal parts American folk singers, Bob Dylan, and the Beatles. Yet instead of being hopelessly derivative, somehow they ended up being one of the greatest imprints on both the form and substance of rock and country music to this day. McGuinn, Crosby, and Hillman join me in this ultra-rare classic rock interview covering the first four Byrds albums Mr Tambourine Man, Turn Turn Turn, Fifth Dimension , and Younger Than Yesterday in February 1967. – Redbeard

Down through the history of mankind, first flights such as The Eagles are revered: the Montgolfier brothers in Paris in 1783 with their hot air balloon; the Wright brothers in 1903 with powered flight, Apollo 11 landing on the Moon…In June 1972 when the debut album by a Southern California-based band The Eagles was quietly released, it had none of the anticipated date-with-destiny public spectacle shared by all of the aforementioned events. But history proved that the original quartet’s first flight would quickly allow a career to take wing that would soon soar, resulting in The Eagles becoming the most popular American band ever. Original member Randy Meisner & co-founder the late Glenn Frey are with me In the Studio for the story on the 50th anniversary of The Eagles.
Aerosmith “Rocks”. It was a declarative statement in Spring 1976 with no equivocation. If Toys in the Attic a year earlier had been the definitive mid-Seventies American hard rock statement, then Aerosmith Rocks made it musically imperative with “Back in the Saddle”, “Sick as a Dog”, the clever sequel to “Toys…” with “Rats in the Cellar”, and another infectious Steven Tyler/Brad Whitford hit, “Last Child”.

Roger McGuinn takes requests. We discovered that fact when the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame legendary leader of The Byrds brought that unmistakable voice and trademark twelve string guitar to my Dallas radio show not long after the release of his January 1991 strong solo album Back From Rio. Roger obliged us with a […]
