Lynyrd Skynyrd- Pronounced – the late Gary Rossington, Ed King, Leon Wilkeson

Over the fifty+ years the perception seems to have become that Lynyrd Skynyrd had a date with destiny, an almost Shakespearean drama of dreams, aspirations, triumph, and tragedy to which all of us were immediately and keenly aware from the moment of "Pronounced" 's release. The late Gary Rossington dismissed that assumption as no more true than imagining Will Shakespeare did not toil, struggle, and starve in relative obscurity in his time.

The all-important breakthrough third ZZ Top album, "Tres Hombres", will focus on the all-around improvements in recording quality and songwriting reflected in such perennials as "Waitin’ for the Bus”, “Jesus Just Left Chicago”, and “Lagrange” plus the introduction of "the squank" to guitar vernacular. Squankmaster Billy Gibbons, drummer Frank Beard, and the dearly missed Dusty Hill tell the colorful tales of the earliest days of ZZ Top here In the Studio for  the breakthrough third album, "Tres Hombres".

George Thorogood and the Destroyers- Move It on Over

I have interviewed literally hundreds of the greatest rock musicians , but George Thorogood is the only one who told me that he was planning to be a professional comedian, not a musician. The best-selling album by bare-knuckle electric bluesrocker George Thorogood with July 1982's Bad to the Bone. George marks the occasion here In the Studio  with his unlikely journey featuring all of his biggest hits including "One Bourbon, One Scotch, and One Beer","Move It On Over", Bo Diddley's "Who Do You Love", "I Drink Alone", Chuck Berry's "It Wasn't Me", and of course "Bad to the Bone".

Queen 50th Anniversary pt 2- Brian May, Roger Taylor

By the time the credits roll concluding the four-time Oscar winning Queen biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody", a casual music fan might assume that the royal rockers' career must have peaked with that July 1985 Live Aid London benefit concert performance which climaxes the film. In fact, the story portrayed in "Bohemian Rhapsody" is only the first volume of the five decade Queen saga whose final chapter is being writ large in real time even today with Queen + Adam Lambert North American Tour. Brian May & Roger Taylor return In the Studio for part 2 of the band's Golden Jubilee.

Queen's golden jubilee, part one, with Brian May and Roger Taylor here In the Studio.

The Band- Music from Big Pink- Robbie Robertson

Widely viewed along with Bob Dylan, The Byrds, and Gram Parsons as  fathers of  the Americana musical movement, The Band also may have  been one of rock's first alternative groups. In part one of this classic rock interview, main songwriter Robbie Robertson ("The Weight","The Night They Drove Ol'Dixie Down","Up on Cripple Creek","The Shape I'm In") helps me make that case.

Foreigner- Double Vision 45th Anniversary- Mick Jones, Lou Gramm, Kelly Hansen

As we discuss the forty-fifth anniversary of their blockbuster second album Double Vision, one of the most endearing things about Foreigner founder and guiding heart, Mick Jones, is that he has never been coy or clever in trying to hide his…
