Keith Reid, Procol Harum lyricist, has passed away March 23. “Live with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra” from the eclectic British band Procol Harum, which has the distinction of placing two of the most unlikely songs at the top of the singles chart five years apart with “Whiter Shade of Pale” in 1967 and “Conquistador” in 1972.

Def Leppard- Rock On- Abbey Road Studios London 2008

When Pink Floyd were putting the finishing touches on “Dark Side of the Moon” at Abbey Road Studios, a very young and impressionable Joe Elliott and Ric Savage would have been all ears in the northern industrial city of Manchester hearing  the delicious, otherworldly song “Rock On” by David Essex on BBC Radio One. Check out Def Leppard’s impressive 21st century live-in-the-studio version.

The Byrds- Roger McGuinn, Chris Hillman, the late David Crosby

David Crosby of The Byrds has died at 81. The members of the original Byrds – singer/songwriter/electric 12-string guitar player Roger (Jim) McGuinn, singer/songwriter David Crosby, the talented but tortured late singer/songwriter Gene Clark, bass player Chris Hillman, & the late drummer Michael Clarke – were always unabashed in their acknowledgment of their influences, equal parts American folk singers, Bob Dylan, and the Beatles. Yet instead of being hopelessly derivative, somehow they ended up being one of the greatest imprints on both the form and substance of rock and country music to this day.  McGuinn, Crosby, and Hillman join me in this ultra-rare classic rock interview covering the first four Byrds albums Mr Tambourine Man,  Turn Turn Turn, Fifth Dimension , and Younger Than Yesterday in February 1967. – Redbeard

Sting-…Nothing Like the Sun

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. 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.

George Harrison’s “Cloud Nine” comeback album in 1987 included “When We Was Fab”,”Devil’s Radio”, the #1 cover of “Got My Mind Set on You”, & the bluesy title song “Cloud Nine”. The late George Harrison is my guest from In the Studio archives.

Billy Joel- The Stranger

Billy Joel is certainly not “The Stranger” to spectacular popularity, or the record books documenting same. And it’s not as if Billy Joel had not been a prolific recording singer/songwriter or an infrequent touring musician prior to his fifth album, “The Stranger”, in Fall 1977. But strangely his album sales were in a decidedly negative trend after “Piano Man”. “The Stranger” changed all that, permanently. Billy Joel joins me In the Studio on the album’s 45th anniversary.
