Pretenders- Learning to Crawl 40th Anniversary- Chrissie Hynde

Forty years ago, after two highly-acclaimed full albums plus an EP, the Pretenders led by American singer/co-writer Chrissie Hynde, had fired their bass player because of drug abuse, only to have their guitarist/co-writer overdose and die two days later. American ex-pat Chrissie Hynde pulls no punches with the life-and-death story, times two, behind one of the Eighties' great comeback albums "Learning to Crawl" in this particularly tough yet tender classic rock interview about the January 1984 Pretenders effort.

Van Halen- 1984 40th Anniversary- Eddie Van Halen, Alex Van Halen, Michael Anthony

Already America's most popular hard rock band prior to its release, "1984"  propelled the Pasadena quartet of innovative guitar whiz Eddie Van Halen, drummer brother Alex, bass player and unmistakable harmony singer Michael Anthony, and showman extraordinaire David Lee Roth into the stratosphere of rock's elite. This is the interview with all, including the late Eddie Van Halen In the Studio.

So take George Harrison's knowing advice, "Live in the light" of his own actual words here In the Studio with my interviews, in part one covering his 1970s Dark Horse years with the songs "What Is Life" and "My Sweet Lord", "Give Me Love (Give Me Peace on Earth)", "Blow Away", "All Those Years Ago" with Harrison's tribute to John Lennon, and with Eric Clapton "Live in  Japan" in the Nineties.

,

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and original Rolling Stones bass player and band historian  Bill Wyman are our dinner guests for "Beggars Banquet" in these classic rock interviews In the Studio.

Doobie Brothers- Minute by Minute- Tom Johnston, Pat Simmons, Michael McDonald

Even though my guest Tom Johnston sang and wrote their early hits "Listen to the Music" and "Long Train Runnin' ", and guest Michael McDonald did likewise on million-sellers "Takin' It to the Streets","It Keeps You Runnin'", & Grammy winners "What a Fool Believes" and"Minute by Minute", it is  guitarist/singer/songwriter Pat Simmons around whom the 25+ members have always rotated.
,

Beatles- White Album pt1- Paul McCartney, the late George Harrison

The Beatles "White Album" 55th Anniversary: How can an album accomplish so much by embedding itself indelibly in popular culture, continuing to influence generations a half century after release, while on the surface revealing so little about its contents and its creators?
,

The Police- Outlandos d’Amour- Sting, Andy Summers, Stewart Copeland

"Outlandos d'Amour' has a certain grotesque, naive charm about it," Sting confesses in my interview about the Police debut,"but 'Regatta de Blanc'  was infinitely a much better record." Police founding drummer Stewart Copeland, guitarist Andy Summers & Sting join Redbeard here In the Studio.
,

John Mellencamp- Uh Huh

John Mellencamp joins me In the Studio for this classic rock interview regarding his star-making multi-million seller in 1983, "Uh Huh". 
,

Queen- Bohemian Rhapsody 5th Anniversary- Brian May, Roger Taylor

In his poignant acceptance speech for the Oscar for Best Actor five years ago, Rami Malek pointed out that he himself was a first-generation immigrant who portrayed a gay immigrant in the role of Queen's Freddie Mercury. But I think that "Bohemian Rhapsody"'s  greatest accomplishment of all is it once again focused the world on Freddie Mercury's remarkable life, rather than the circumstances of his death.

R.E.M.- Green 35th- Michael Stipe, Peter Buck, Mike Mills

If you were fortunate in 1983 to discover the first full-length album "Murmur" from Athens GA-based R.E.M. , you probably realize that it sounded unlike anything else at the time, and precious little ever since except maybe their followup,"Reckoning". Over the next four years and five albums on indie label IRS, Michael Stipe Peter Buck, Mike Mills, and Bill Berry made some of the smartest,quirkiest, angular rock of any American band...Michael, Peter, and Mike all join me here In the Studio for the 35th anniversary of R.E.M.'s four million seller "Green".
