Rush- New World Man- 1984

Rush "New Word Man" live 1984

Aerosmith- Rag Doll- Brussels 10-31-93

"Rag Time" originally was a subject derived from Steven Tyler's personal "periodic table", which has zero to do with chemistry and everything to do with female physiology...Now "Rag Doll" has remained an easy keeper in the Aerosmith live set for decades, including Halloween night in Brussels back in 1993.

John Mellencamp- Paper in Fire- 12-91 rehearsal

What a great band, live off the garage floor- literally- no overdubs, samples, tricks. This is the way you do it, folks, recorded at rehearsal in John Mellencamp's garage in the snow-covered hills of Central Indiana just before Christmas 1991…

John Mellencamp- Check It Out- garage rehearsal 12-91

Greg Lake- From the Beginning- Dallas 1992

Greg Lake brought his choirboy voice In the Studio to my Q102 Dallas/ Ft Worth radio show one afternoon in 1992, sat a curvy blonde on his knee ( a guitar ), and sang several songs including the gorgeous "From the Beginning", which appeared on Emerson, Lake, and Palmer's 1972 progressive rock album "Trilogy".

John Fogerty- Blue Boy- Burbank 5-12-97

John Fogerty had attracted an "A" list live band and had been rehearsing at Burbank's Center Staging, so we did the interview there, then turned those thoroughbreds loose on the song "Blue Boy" in front of a lucky small audience of guests in May 1997.

Sammy Hagar- I Can’t Drive 55- Dallas 12-4-91 (w/Van Halen)

"It took me sixteen hours to get to Dallas Texas today!", sings Sammy Hagar to the huge crowd near the end of this legendary free concert in the blocked off streets of downtown Dallas Texas that sunny December afternoon during the performance with Van Halen of his anthem, "I Can't Drive 55".

David Bowie- Life on Mars?- NYC 11-19-99

The electricity in the room was palpable that crisp November night 1999 in Manhattan when David Bowie took the stage of the Kit Kat Klub and opened his show ( historic in that it was among the first ever live-streamed on the internet by a major Artist ) with this stunning rendition of "Life on Mars?".

ZZ Top- Tubesnake Boogie- Gruene Hall, New Braunfels TX

This was something longtime ZZ Top fans had been dreaming about for decades: a horned toad's eye view of Billy Gibbons, Frank Beard, and now dearly departed Dusty Hill at rehearsal in the Lone Star state in historic roadhouse Gruene Hall in New Braunfels, nestled in the Texas Hill Country, knocking the bottom out of the ornery bucket shuffle "Tubesnake Boogie" for the Grammy-nominated film documentary ZZ Top: That Little Ol' Band from Texas.

Black Crowes- My Morning Song- Houston 2-6-93

We are so thrilled to be able to share this white-hot performance in Houston of the Black Crowes, newly headlining arenas by 1993 and clearly up for the task, mighty tight and hittin' the note on "My Morning Song". Thankfully, this time no idiot in the crowd pulled the P.A. stack down on top of audience members near the stage wings.

Black Crowes- Remedy- Oklahoma City 5-10-95

The Black Crowes' finest hour may have been their benefit performance for the shell-shocked innocent citizens of Oklahoma City following the worst terrorist attack in the US April 19,1995.
