To my knowledge, the Jimi Hendrix early show at Berkeley CA on May 30, 1970 has never officially been released, so “Voodoo Child” is a nice appetizer for the 55th anniversary of “Electric Ladyland” coming up.

The Sting and I…We had already done multiple interviews when he was in The Police and now Sting had released three solo albums, including Fall 1987’s “Nothing Like the Sun”, by the time we reconvened in 1991.

Peering now into their spyglass in reverse, it is both remarkable in its accuracy but, I must admit, troubling in its sense of creeping inevitability.
‘Blackout”, the March 1982 big breakthrough in the US for the irrepressible Scorpions. Over the decades I’ve had countless famous musicians claim that rock & roll had become their life ,but only John Kay of Steppenwolf and the members of The Scorpions knew that playing rock music could COST them their lives…

In the last spasms of the London Punk Rock scene circa 1980, Generation X and their front man Billy Broad had the career arc of a bottle rocket, briefly filling English dance floors with the celebratory single “Dancing with Myself”and a cover of “Mony Mony”. But Punk Rock’s purpose of being a disruptive force to reset all the tumblers of popular music was practically fulfilled by then, and had no second act, so Billy Idol needed a new start. Billy Idol is my guest In the Studio.
