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.

On a maximum scale of five stars, the 1977 debut by Cheap Trick receives AllMusic.com's highest rating, and the even more melodic, better sounding sophomore effort "In Color" in the same year earns 4 1/2 stars. Then Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen, Robin Zander, Tom Petersson, and Bun E. Carlos wrote and recorded the masterpiece "Heaven Tonight" in May 1978, yet again scoring a critics' perfect five star rating. So in hindsight it would appear that recording the Rockford IL quartet's set while performing the strongest material from these three killer studio albums, in front of an adoring audience in one of the world's premiere venues, would be as obvious as a sumo wrestler in your shower stall.

"Guitar Town " Steve Earle shares here In the Studio for his #1-charting Country debut in March 1986: "I'm a straggler from what was going on in Austin and Nashville in the mid-70s. I had good teachers, Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, Jerry Jeff Walker, B.W. Stevenson...when I first got to Nashville on any given night, you could go to Guy's house. And he'd have everybody, from the street level where I was to Mickey Newbury and Neil Young, with the guitar going around. So it was a good place to learn. Then, basically cocaine sort of created a caste system and killed that real fast!"

Five years ago Bryan Adams released a strong album, "Get Up! " Bryan was so happy to rekindle his famous songwriting partnership with Jim Vallance that he needed ELO mastermind Jeff Lynne to collaborate on Bryan's strongest new songs in years.

It is the forty-fifth anniversary of Boz Scaggs "Silk Degrees" , one of the albums which musically defined America's bicentennial year in much the same way as "Frampton Comes Alive", "Fly Like an Eagle" and "Year of the Cat". More accurately this Boz Scaggs interview falls under "Ultra Rare", as the Dallas Texas native, long residing in the San Francisco Bay wine country, has led one of the more private lives in contemporary music.

It is the fiftieth anniversary of The YES Album , a progressive rock touchstone. If the British Invasion bands led by The Beatles and Rolling Stones wanted to be rock'n'roll's second verse after "Be Bop a Lula" and "Maybe Baby", then London's King Crimson, Emerson Lake and Palmer, and YES were determined to be rock's "C" section, the musical bridge which takes the listener somewhere unexpectedly before returning to the familiar refrain.

Jackson Browne had grown increasingly active in a series of high-profile humanitarian causes including nuclear energy moratorium, climate change awareness, famine relief, and anti-apartheid in South Africa...But not until the February 1986 release of "Lives in the Balance" had the popular singer/songwriter turned his introspective mirror around in his songs. Jackson Browne joins me here In the Studio for the 35th anniversary.

The Sting and I...We had already done multiple interviews when he was in The Police and now Sting had just released his third solo album by the time we reconvened to discuss "The Soul Cages" in 1991. Sting had lost both parents by then, the most recent his father, and was clearly wrestling with his star ascending amidst pain and personal loss.

When I sat down In the Studio in Autumn 1990 with Steve Winwood to talk about his then new release "Refugees of the Heart" , he had already established himself with the breakthrough album "Arc of a Dive"r ten years prior, then midway in between released "Back in the High Life", one of the biggest albums commercially as well as critically, and "Roll With It", in the Eighties.
