Woman 50th Anniversary- the late Ray Manzarek
It is the fiftieth anniversary of "L.A. Woman" by The Doors, one of the greatest albums ever made by an American band, one of the first great albums to usher in the Seventies decade, the last album ever by the incomparable Jim Morrison, and a personal "desert island disc" for me that never ages; with the late Ray Manzarek In the Studio.

Back in 2015 when the Rolling Stones were playing tight and right, presciently Mick Jagger knew that they had better do something special for the Rolling Stones' fiftieth anniversary of the landmark album "Sticky Fingers", albeit six years early. The Stones played every song from it at the LA Fonda Theater, including this spirited version of "Brown Sugar".

Eras in music no more follow the calendar than Mother Nature does. Thus fifty years ago in mid-March 1971 the last live performance of the Sixties in effect may actually gone down when the Rolling Stones ended their brief Scottish/ English tour at London's Roundhouse with this final performance of "Honky Tonk Women".

"It took me twelve years to make that album Live Bullet ," Bob Seger solemnly emphasizes to me in this classic rock interview to mark the forty-fifth anniversary of that release from Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band in April 1976. This may be the only six million-seller in history which failed to make the Top Thirty in sales when initially released.

The sub-title of this classic rock interview should probably be "Frampton Barely Survives". Everybody knows that young Englishman Peter Frampton revolutionized the recording industry in early 1976 with his live double set "Frampton Comes Alive". But where did those now-iconic songs like "Show Me the Way", "Lines on My Face", "Baby I Love Your Way", "All I Want to Be (Is By Your Side)", and "Do You Feel Like We Do" originally come from? Peter joins me In the Studio to trace the days after he left Humble Pie, his struggles with four solid but woefully under-exposed solo studio albums, his phenomenal transformation into pop superstardom with the live album, and the tumultuous years immediately afterward trying to survive it all.

On a maximum scale of five stars, the 1977 debut by Cheap Trick receives AllMusic.com's highest rating, and the even more melodic, better sounding sophomore effort "In Color" in the same year earns 4 1/2 stars. Then Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen, Robin Zander, Tom Petersson, and Bun E. Carlos wrote and recorded the masterpiece "Heaven Tonight" in May 1978, yet again scoring a critics' perfect five star rating. So in hindsight it would appear that recording the Rockford IL quartet's set while performing the strongest material from these three killer studio albums, in front of an adoring audience in one of the world's premiere venues, would be as obvious as a sumo wrestler in your shower stall.

U2's "Until the End of the World", it is imperative that the listener understand that the singers' (plural) perspectives change every time the stanzas do. The singer in the first stanza is Jesus Christ; the singer in the second stanza is Judas; and in the final stanza, it's you and me.

"2112" by Rush was an amalgam of hard rock, progressive rock, science-fiction and Ayn Rand socio-economics right about the same time that The Ramones, The Dead Boys, and Ian Dury and the Blockheads were singing "Sex and Drugs and Rock'n'Roll". So things were about to get interesting in 1976. Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson of Rush join me here In the Studio

"Guitar Town " Steve Earle shares here In the Studio on the thiry-fifth anniversary of his #1-charting Country debut in March 1986: "I'm a straggler from what was going on in Austin and Nashville in the mid-70s. I had good teachers, Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, Jerry Jeff Walker, B.W. Stevenson...when I first got to Nashville on any given night, you could go to Guy's house. And he'd have everybody, from the street level where I was to Mickey Newbury and Neil Young, with the guitar going around. So it was a good place to learn. Then, basically cocaine sort of created a caste system and killed that real fast!"

Thus began a five year period when a series of tragedies befell Led Zeppelin even while they continued to record timeless hard rock such as "Achilles' Last Stand","Nobody's Fault but Mine", and "For Your Life" from Presence which amaze even now almost half a century later. Jimmy Page blesses us with his Presence and joins me here In the Studio on the forty-fifth anniversary of "Presence" .
