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

Peter Frampton- Shine On Early Best

The sub-title of this classic rock interview should probably be "Frampton Barely Survives". Everybody knows that young Englishman Peter Frampton revolutionized the recording industry in early 1976 with his live double set  "Frampton Comes Alive". But where did those now-iconic songs like "Show Me the Way", "Lines on My Face", "Baby I Love Your Way", "All I Want to Be (Is By Your Side)", and "Do You Feel Like We Do" originally come from? Peter joins me In the Studio to trace the days after he left Humble Pie, his struggles with four solid but woefully under-exposed solo studio albums, his phenomenal transformation into pop superstardom with the live album, and the tumultuous years immediately afterward trying to survive it all.

The Cult- Sonic Temple 35th Anniversary- Billy Duffy

This late 1987 interview with The Cult lead guitarist/co-writer Billy Duffy reflects  the frustration, duplicated effort, and enormous expense the band incurred making the preceding album, "Electric", as well as the subsequent success they found with the final results, pointing ahead to the platinum success thirty-five years ago with "Sonic Temple".

Collective Soul- Hints, Allegations… 30th Anniversary- Ed Roland

The story of Collective Soul emerged a little more than thirty years ago from the basement of Stockbridge, Georgia songwriter Ed Roland's parent's basement. But after selling over a million copies of the album "Hints, Allegations,& Things Left Unsaid", primarily on the phenomenon of "Shine" alone...Ed Roland is my guest In the Studio.

Scorpions- Love at First Sting 40th- Klaus Meine, Rudolph Schenker

"Love At First Sting" by the Scorpions in March 1984 soared to # 6 on the Billboard album chart with triple platinum sales, while delivering a blitzkreig of rock anthems including “Rock You Like A Hurricane”, “Big City Nights”, and the signature power ballad “Still Loving You”. Scorpions lead singer Klaus Meine and guitarist Rudolph Schenker are my guesst In the Studio.

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.
