Two of my all-time faves remain the cinderella story beginnings of Heart in 1976 with "Dreamboat Annie" and the "comeback" album almost a decade later, "Heart" . This hit machine in 1985 reinvented Heart for the MTV Eighties with "If Looks Could Kill","What About Love","Never","These Dreams", and "Nothing at All". Wow. Nancy Wilson and singing sistuh Ann Wilson join me here In the Studio on the thirty-fifth anniversary of "Heart" ('85).

It was The Game that crowned Queen #1 worldwide, precisely because of the balance of hits "Crazy Little Thing Called Love", "Another One Bites the Dust", "Play the Game" with the blistering "Dragon Attack", "Rock It", and "Sail Away Sweet Sister". Brian May and Roger Taylor are suited up to play The Game here In the Studio for its fortieth anniversary.

"I'm probably the worst musician in the band," admits Ray Davies of The Kinks In the Studio. "They're very good players, and this record One for the Road shows them off as players as well."

Driving halfway across America not long after the June 1975 release of "One of These Nights" by The Eagles is when I truly realized just how massively popular this band had become. Original Eagles singer/ bass player Randy Meisner and the late Eagles co-founder singer/ guitarist Glenn Frey joined me here In the Studio in a classic rock interview that is precious now on the forty-fifth anniversary of the album which single-handedly took country and western music from the bunkhouse to Broadway.

The godfathers of hard rock Ozzy Osbourne, James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett of Metallica, Klaus Meine from Scorpions, David Coverdale from Deep Purple and Whitesnake, and Queensryche co-founders Geoff Tate and Chris Degarmo rip through some seminal hard rock including the late Ronnie James Dio fronting Black Sabbath all "In the Studio" for Heavy Metal History

Police singer/ songwriter Sting's first solo album," The Dream of the Blue Turtles", was highly anticipated. Musical direction-wise it surprised some who did not know Sting's pre-punk jazz roots at college, but in no way did it disappoint, with "If You Love Somebody, Set Them Free", "Russians", and "Fortress Around Your Heart".

"It's like someone pulling at a thread, unraveling your sweater, except the sweater is you, " former Dire Straits bandleader Mark Knopfler tries to explain the phenomenon of "Brothers in Arms" thirty-five years ago and modern super-celebrity here In the Studio in this classic rock interview. "I recommend success to anybody. I can't think of anything good about fame. If you can, let me know."

The surprise success from "Black Water" afforded the Doobie Brothers some creative license on their next album, "Stampede", released in April 1975. But as you will hear from Patrick Simmons, Tom Johnston, and the late Doobie drummer Mike Hossack, the non-stop grind of five years of one-nighters, stopping only long enough to record the next album, was starting to create stress fractures in the foundation of the band which would sideline Tom Johnston with a bleeding ulcer and, ultimately, alter the sound of the Doobie Brothers for the next decade.

By April 1980 we in the rock music world were beginning to miss Townshend's new music, which had been a pretty consistent mainstay of rock'n'roll for fifteen years prior but had been understandably MIA since the sudden death of madcap Who drummer Keith Moon in 1978. Townshend filled Empty Glass with his grief over the loss of his friend, as well as very personal subjects including alcoholism, adult relationships, and his conflicted reaction to Punk Rock in the songs"Rough Boys","A Little is Enough","Gonna Get Ya", and pop spiritual"Let My Love Open the Door", a Top Five US hit.

We dust off "Toys in the Attic", the breakthrough third album for Aerosmith in April 1975. Contrary to what you might assume, through their first two albums Aerosmith struggled to get noticed. In this classic rock interview, Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer reminded me that "Dream On" from their debut by then had been released as a single three times and flopped twice.

Bad Company had elbowed their way to the forefront of the rock world by the April 1975 release of their second album, "Straight Shooter" ,avoiding the sophomore jinx with timeless songs "Good Lovin' Gone Bad","Feel Like Makin' Love", and "Shooting Star". But as my guests Paul Rodgers, Mick Ralphs, and Simon Kirke share here, strange things can happen eventually when that much success is achieved that quickly in lives so young.

We were not even ninety days into the new Eighties decade when Genesis, now a trio with Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford, and Tony Banks, released "Duke". Though already the veteran progressive rockers' tenth (!) studio album, it contained their first Top 15 US hits, "Misunderstanding" and "Turn It On Again".
