Carlos Santana Celebrates Cinqo de Mayo

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer & Grammy Award record holder Carlos Santana has thoughts about identity, inclusion, and immigration on this Cinqo de Mayo.

Allman Brothers Band- Eat a Peach- the late Gregg Allman, the late Dickey Betts

It was Duane Allman who formed and led the Allman Brothers Band, and behind them an entire new Southern Rock movement. But at the end of October 1971 midway through the recording of what would become" Eat a Peach", Duane died riding his beloved motorcycle. Gregg Allman (who died May 2017) and ex-guitarist Dickey Betts (d.4/18/24) reveal how the music sustained the brotherhood.

Rush- Grace Under Pressure 40th Anniversary- Neil Peart

When revisiting the Rush April 1984 release "Grace Under Pressure", I had to double-check the math. Could "Grace Under Pressure", in my mind that mid-period transitional album for the Toronto-based trio, really have been their tenth studio album in as many years? The late Neil Peart of Rush discussed it all on opening night of the "Grace Under Pressure" 1984 tour.

Peter Frampton- Shine On Early Best

The sub-title of this classic rock interview should probably be "Frampton Barely Survives". Everybody knows that young Englishman Peter Frampton revolutionized the recording industry in early 1976 with his live double set  "Frampton Comes Alive". But where did those now-iconic songs like "Show Me the Way", "Lines on My Face", "Baby I Love Your Way", "All I Want to Be (Is By Your Side)", and "Do You Feel Like We Do" originally come from? Peter joins me In the Studio to trace the days after he left Humble Pie, his struggles with four solid but woefully under-exposed solo studio albums, his phenomenal transformation into pop superstardom with the live album, and the tumultuous years immediately afterward trying to survive it all.

The Cult- Sonic Temple 35th Anniversary- Billy Duffy

This late 1987 interview with The Cult lead guitarist/co-writer Billy Duffy reflects  the frustration, duplicated effort, and enormous expense the band incurred making the preceding album, "Electric", as well as the subsequent success they found with the final results, pointing ahead to the platinum success thirty-five years ago with "Sonic Temple".

YES- Talk 30th Anniversary- Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin

YES innovated in early 1994 with “Talk”, and singer/lyricist Jon Anderson and singer/guitarist/composer Trevor Rabin joined me In the Studio to talk about “Talk”.

Collective Soul- Hints, Allegations… 30th Anniversary- Ed Roland

The story of Collective Soul emerged a little more than thirty years ago from the basement of Stockbridge, Georgia songwriter Ed Roland's parent's basement. But after selling over a million copies of the album "Hints, Allegations,& Things Left Unsaid", primarily on the phenomenon of "Shine" alone...Ed Roland is my guest In the Studio.
