For Van Halen ” For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge” , we present an ultra-rare “fly on the wall” listen to the biggest hard rock band in America in 1991. The late Eddie Van Halen, brother Alex, Michael Anthony, and Sammy Hagar had the #1-selling album on the Billboard chart containing “Poundcake”,”Judgment Day, “Runaround”, “Right Now”, and “Top of the World” when we had this lively conversation. This complete interview with all four members has never been heard, & it is now quite historic with the leaving of Sammy Hagar about five years later, & the passing of Eddie Van Halen in 2020.

“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…
When the Super Bowl was played in San Francisco in February 2016, hometown Bay Area hard rock heroes Metallica were the obvious choice for the midpoint entertainment slot…except the Load they were bringing was deemed “too heavy for halftime” by the NFL.

Bad Company lead singer/songwriter Paul Rodgers, guitarist/songwriter Mick Ralphs, and drummer Simon Kirke all agreed that being the first band signed to Led Zeppelin’s Swan Song label, as well as sharing management with them, was advantageous. However the expectations for this “supergroup”, containing Rodgers and Kirke from Free and Ralphs from Mott the Hoople, were exceedingly high for “Run With the Pack” in 1976.
Listening now to the epic title song to “Tarkus , the second studio album in June1971 which followed quickly after their stunning 1970 debut, with Greg Lake’s voice delicately yet nimbly bounding along to Keith Emerson’s piano runs, it’s clear that Emerson Lake and Palmer were much less “Be Bop a Lula” in their melodic grandeur and much more “Andrew Lloyd Weber”. Here In the Studio is the story in their own words of progressive rock’s first supergroup.
Ozzy Osbourne In the Studio for the making of 1980’s “Blizzard of Ozz”.
“Light and shade,” Jimmy Page once told me, speaking to the secret of Led Zeppelin’s universal popularity, and never was that combination more on display than on the title song to Jethro Tull’s September 1975 “Minstrel in the Gallery”.
Beginning in 1979 and continuing all the way until 1987 with “Crest of a Knave”, Jethro Tull’s fate and fortunes would be quite unlike their first decade of success when the unique amalgam of blues rock, Scottish Highlands folk, and hard rock, led by Ian Anderson and exemplified by “Aqualung” and the worldwide #1-seller “Thick As a Brick”, packed arenas.
