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.

The story of Heart's debut "Dreamboat Annie" remains one of the Cinderella fairy tale chapters in rock history, but the major label follow up released this week in 1977, "Little Queen", was made amidst a legal battle prompted precisely because initial big money, & the potential for more.

Preparing this thirtieth anniversary interview with Black Crowes co-founders singer Chris Robinson and his younger guitar-playing brother Rich Robinson to mark their second release, "The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion", the deja vu was uncanny and not a little bit unsettling. Constantly I had to remind myself that the trends these Atlanta natives were seeing in the mid-1990s, and the predictions they made then, sound eerily like today's headlines. Peering now into their spyglass in reverse, it is both remarkable in its accuracy but, I must admit, troubling in its sense of creeping inevitability.

The wonderful music on Supertramp's "Even in the Quietest Moments", peaking at #16 on Billboard and #12 in their native UK, sounds to my ear as vital today as ever, somehow frozen in time like the snow atop the grand piano on the album's cover. One of the Supertramp singer/ songwriters, guitarist Roger Hodgson joins me here In the Studio for a rare classic rock interview while sharing spectacular live performances from transitional album Crisis? What Crisis? plus sublime songs "Give a Little Bit","From Now On","Downstream" and "Even in the Quietest Moments" on that album's forty-fifth anniversary.

When JohnMellencamp’s fourth album American Fool yielded three Top Twenty hits in April 1982, including “Hurt So Good” (#2) followed by his first #1, “Jack and Diane”, only two entities were as equally relieved as John: his ambitious English manager and his long suffering US record company. The former had negotiated John’s record deal as “Johnny Cougar”...in a move which would cause the musician considerable chagrin for the better part of ten years. John Mellencamp joins me In the Studio for this classic rock interview on the fortieth anniversary of his breakthrough multi-million seller "American Fool".
