Rare classic rock interviews by Redbeard from the vast In the Studio archive

Sammy Hagar- Best, Round 2

in 1982 Sammy Hagar answered the bell  and came out swinging, scoring a technical knockout with his first mainstream hit "Your Love Is Driving Me Crazy" from his seventh solo album "Three Lock Box". Then in 1987 Sammy won by a knockout with his solo album I Never Said Goodbye, at #14 his highest charting album ever, and that while being newly installed as Van Halen's lead singer. Hagar reveals some deeply held intensely personal insights into what has driven him to this day.

With the January release of Creedence Clearwater Revival's second album, "Bayou Country", the mind-boggling hat trick began in 1969 where "Bayou Country", "Green River", and "Willy & the Poor Boys" albums were all released by Creedence Clearwater Revival in a 12-month period.

Emerson, Lake, and Palmer- Brain Salad Surgery 50th- Carl Palmer

Emerson, Lake, and Palmer were HUGE arena fillers and sales monsters ( UK #2 sales, Top 10 US ) and quite innovative progressive rockers when "Brain Salad Surgery" came out in late 1973. And you must hear Keith Emerson, Greg Lake, and Carl Palmer tell the story of visiting Swiss cover artist the late H.R.Giger!

The Police- Outlandos d’Amour @45- Sting, Andy Summers, Stewart Copeland

"Outlandos d'Amour' has a certain grotesque, naive charm about it," Sting confesses in this 45th anniversary interview about the Police debut,"but 'Regatta de Blanc'  was infinitely a much better record."

Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey join me In the Studio in this interview for the first in a two-part look at "Quadrophenia" at fifty, the last word on Townshend's October 1973 rock opera, which certainly is much more appreciated today than upon its initial release ...(more)

Who- Quadrophenia 50th- Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, the late John Entwistle pt2

(cont)... As The Who's recognized Quadrophenia auteur , Townshend has assessed their almost half-century of musical creation and found it to be good . Pete is a delightful , witty , thoughtful , and refreshingly honest conversationalist who can easily and effectively examine The Who's epic 1973 opus through a slightly-detached , objective eye which only the passage of time , and maturity , can provide . -Redbeard
