When entities outside of the rock world try to define it, I usually hold my breath and cover my eyes, but in 2008 the folks at Time- Life   did a pretty impressive job collecting hard rock genre-defining classics from Deep Purple, Whitesnake, KISS, Bad Company, Heart, Judas Priest, Boston, Ted Nugent, and many more in a nine CD box set Hard + Heavy.  I asked Roger Glover and Ian Gillan, David Coverdale, Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, Paul Rodgers, Ann and Nancy Wilson, Rob Halford, Tom Scholz, and Ted Nugent each to share their respective “Rock’n’Roll Fantasy” and each agreed to “Shout It Out Loud” here In the Studio.  –Redbeard
