Lindsey Buckingham- Never Going Back Again- Dallas '92

An In the Studio exclusive, Lindsey Buckingham performing "Never Going Back Again" !

Cheap Trick- Need Your Love- Passaic NJ 12/78

Cheap Trick actually delayed their studio follow-up to the brilliant 1978 third album Heaven Tonight , not because of a lack of strong songs  written, but because their fluke live in-Japan- only release At Budokan  virtually blew up over…

Bruce Springsteen & E Street Band- Factory- Cleveland 8-78

With the release of the album Darkness on the Edge of Town in 1978, Bruce Springsteen went from the Cinemascope sweep of Born to Run three years earlier to the Rock Generation's defacto Secretary of Labor.

Rolling Stones- Mixed Emotions- Toronto 9-3-89

When interviewing Keith Richards in early January 1989 ostensibly about his solo album Talk is Cheap,  I was repeatedly reminded by his delightful publicist Jane Rose not to ask about the 900 pound gorilla in the studio: the Rolling Stones,…

Neil Young and Crazy Horse- Down By the River- San Francisco 1986

Neil Young and Crazy Horse live "Down By the River"

John Fogerty- Green River- Burbank 5-97

Creedence Clearwater Revival, led by John Fogerty, were very busy this month fifty years ago. Their third album Green River   had just been released, their first since the spectacular breakthrough of "Proud Mary" from Bayou Country , and…

Crowded House- Don't Dream It's Over/All I Have to Do is Dream- 2010

"Hey now, hey now...". What a great band. Formed from the stray strands of New Zealand's Split Enz, Crowded House had up to four lead singers and the brilliant songs of Neil Finn. Not even the almost criminally inept career direction of their…

Aerosmith- Love in an Elevator- Brussels 10-31-93

Revving you up for the Aerosmith Pump   thirtieth anniversary coming in a few weeks. Proof positive that on Halloween night 1993, there was not a band on the planet better than Aerosmith in concert. Exhibit A is this sizzling live version of…

Toad the Wet Sprocket- Fall Down- Dallas 5-19-94

Love these guys live, and as you can hear, Toad the Wet Sprocket can pull off their tight melodic sound straight off the floor without any tricks, as here with "Fall Down" from May 1994. -Redbeard [jwplayer config="Audio Player" file="http://its-live.s3.amazonaws.com/TOAD…

Great White- Rock Me- Anaheim CA 7-24-93

We received a nice note a few years back  from Bobby Black at an In the Studio  affiliate  who had dinner with Great White keyboard player/producer Michael Lardie. It seems that Lardie was reminiscing appreciatively about the positive impact…

AC/DC- Shot Down in Flames- Paris 1979

As we approach the fortieth anniversary of AC/DC's worldwide breakthrough album Highway to Hell  , here is another white-hot live performance from the original Aussie outfit fronted by the inimitable Bon Scott ripping through "Shot Down in…

Phil Collins "In the Air Tonight"- Live Aid Phila. 7-13-85

"I've been waiting for this moment all my life, oh Lord..." As the summer sun set to the west of the massive JFK stadium teeming with 100,000 people for Live Aid US, I stood center stage about ten feet behind Phil Collins seated at a black…

Neil Young-"Needle & the Damage Done" Live Aid Phila. 7-13-85

Dallas-Ft.Worth radio station Q102 and the Dallas Morning News  sent me to JFK Stadium in Philadelphia to cover the US Live Aid concert. About a year later Neil Young was doing a live interview with me on my afternoon Q102 radio show and during…

Joe Walsh- Life's Been Good- Dallas 7-10-81

Joe Walsh announced his candidacy for President of the United States on July 10, 1981 during a concert in Dallas. [jwplayer config="Audio Player" file="https://its-live.s3.amazonaws.com/JOE+WALSH-LIVE+IN+DALLAS+'81/LIVE-joe-walsh-lifes-been-good.mp3"…

Roger McGuinn- Chestnut Mare- Dallas 1991

Roger McGuinn takes requests. We discovered that fact when the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame legendary leader of The Byrds brought that unmistakable voice and trademark twelve string guitar to my Dallas radio show not long after the release of…
