Allman Brothers Band- Eat a Peach- the late Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts

The legendary Allman Brothers Band had officially disbanded even prior to the deaths of drummer Butch Trucks and singer/ organist Gregg Allman in 2017, but to this day I still marvel how it all could have possibly continued for almost half a century after what happened so early on at a critical launching point in the band’s career during the making of their fourth album, “Eat a Peach. it was Duane Allman who formed and led the Allman Brothers Band, and behind them an entire new Southern Rock movement. But at the end of October 1971 midway through the recording of what would become” Eat a Peach”, Duane died riding his beloved motorcycle. Gregg Allman (who died May 2017) and ex-guitarist Dickey Betts reveal how the music sustained the brotherhood.

The Pretenders- Pretenders II- Chrissie Hynde

We had never met anyone in rock music quite like The Pretenders bandleader Chrissie Hynde, and honestly in the  forty years since, I still haven’t…I have Ms. Hynde here to speak for herself In the Studio  about The Pretenders/ Pretenders II, one of rock’s most important one-two Post-punk punches.

Allman Brothers Band- Live Fillmore East-the late Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts

The original Allman Brothers Band had to be seen and heard live to be fully appreciated, and in 1971 the band headlined four shows over two nights on March 13-14 at the Fillmore East that were recorded. My guests remember it well: one of two original guitarists, Dickey Betts, & the late great Gregg Allman.

Steve Winwood- Back in the High Life

“Higher Love”, the #1 seller and winner of both the “Record of the Year” and “Song of the Year” Grammys for 1986, isn’t about doing it in the top bunk. It’s about love on a spiritual plane, not an airplane. By his mid-twenties, Steve Winwood already may have  been on a hall of fame career pace, singing and playing hits as a mere teenager with the Spencer Davis Group (“Gimme Some Lovin’ “,” I’m a Man”), Traffic, and Blind Faith. Yet Winwood told me in this  classic rock interview about 1986’s “Back in the High Life”  that a 1972 bout with peritonitis almost killed him…

Aerosmith- Rocks- Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Tom Hamilton, Brad Whitford, Joey Kramer

Aerosmith “Rocks”. It was a declarative statement in Spring 1976 with no equivocation. If “Toys in the Attic” a year earlier had been the definitive mid-Seventies  American hard rock statement, then Aerosmith “Rocks” made it musically imperative with “Back in the Saddle”, “Sick as a Dog”, the clever sequel to “Toys…” with “Rats in the Cellar”, and another infectious Steven Tyler/Brad Whitford hit, “Last Child”.

Peter Frampton- Frampton Forgets the Words

When Peter Frampton announced in 2019 that his diagnosis with a progressive neuromuscular disease would necessitate his final goodbye tour then, no one was more concerned than me. But as you will hear in this new interview about Peter Frampton’s new album, “Frampton Forgets the Words” , he has miraculously found inspiration in making every day be as meaningful, productive, and rewarding as possible.

Live Aid 35th Anniversary- Neil Young- Helpless- Philadelphia

Proving to the whole world that day to be anything other than “Helpless”, Neil Young and a cast of a hundred thousand in Philadelphia’s JFK Stadium joined a similar group in London’s Wembley Stadium via satellite, and an estimated 1.4 billion viewing and listening worldwide, to raise money and awareness for starving residents of Ethiopia, Sudan, and sub-Saharan Africa on July 13, 1985 for Live Aid 35th anniversary.
