“It took me twelve years to make that album Live Bullet ,” Bob Seger  solemnly emphasizes to me in this classic rock interview from Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band in April 1976.

The Doors- Ray Manzarek

In January 1967 when John Densmore’s snare drum cracked like a rifle shot before Ray Manzarek’s nimble fingers made their intricate run of baroque-sounding notes on that reedy Farfisa organ, all on the introduction to jazz/flamenco guitarist Robbie Krieger’s composition “Light My Fire”, it clearly and boldly announced a unique approach to rock and roll that really has no peer. And all of that before Jim Morrison stepped up to the microphone to introduce one of the greatest voices and hedonistic personalities in rock history. Not unlike Creedence Clearwater Revival from the same period, no other American bands put out more albums in less time which were more influential in the last 50+ years. And like CCR, no one ever sounded like The Doors ever since. Here is Doors co-founder the late Ray Manzarek with me In the Studio to mark The Doors anniversary. -Redbeard

Styx- Paradise Theatre- Tommy Shaw, James Young

If I told you that over forty years ago  one of America’s top music acts released a concept album that  identified growing cracks in the foundation of our society and presciently predicted everything we find today, who would you guess it was? Bob Dylan? Neil Young? Crosby Stills and Nash? I doubt that Styx would come to mind to many, but that is precisely what “Paradise Theater”  was, part lament, part warning. Current members Tommy Shaw, JY, & Lawrence Gowan all weigh in as does ex-member Dennis DeYoung on “Paradise Theater” ‘s fortieth anniversary.

Grateful Dead- Blues for Allah 45th Anniversary- Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, Phil Lesh

If you really want to have fun with a self-proclaimed Deadhead, first have him/ her set down their phone and then ask them to name the Grateful Dead’s highest-charting Billboard   album up to the band’s 1987 best-seller, “In the Dark” . You’ll get a lot “Workingman’s Dead” and “American Beauty” guesses, and after that I’d have picked “Terrapin Station”. The correct answer turns out to be the tasty mid-decade effort by the Grateful Dead, “Blues for Allah”. Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, & Phil Lesh are In the Studio.
