The Who Live at Leeds may have been the first live album I ever bought, but it's safe to say that it has since remained a benchmark with which to compare a half century of live performance pretenders to the throne of anything demonstrably better.

By April 1980 we in the rock music world were beginning to miss Townshend's new music, which had been a pretty consistent mainstay of rock'n'roll for fifteen years prior but had been understandably MIA since the sudden death of madcap Who drummer Keith Moon in 1978. Townshend filled Empty Glass with his grief over the loss of his friend, as well as very personal subjects including alcoholism, adult relationships, and his conflicted reaction to Punk Rock in the songs"Rough Boys","A Little is Enough","Gonna Get Ya", and pop spiritual"Let My Love Open the Door", a Top Five US hit.

Watching and listening to Paul McCartney, normally the effervescently sweet post-War embodiment of that "all is well" British sentiment, deliver his sober introduction to the song "Lady Madonna" during the Global At Home: Together telecast, was as powerful as the performance itself.

Todd Rundgren performed a stunning version of "Black Mariah", one of my all-time TR faves (originally found "when the kid gets heavy..." on Something/ Anything? almost fifty years ago ) when he played Ridgefield CT back in 2015, and this high…

We dust off "Toys in the Attic", the breakthrough third album for Aerosmith in April 1975. Contrary to what you might assume, through their first two albums Aerosmith struggled to get noticed. In this classic rock interview, Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer reminded me that "Dream On" from their debut by then had been released as a single three times and flopped twice.

They were the changes in musical direction and key personnel made on Jethro Tull's critical preceding third album, "Benefit", in April 1970, that provided the oxygen in "Aqualung" 's tank a year later.

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; the singer in the second stanza is Judas; and in the final stanza, it's you and me.

Bad Company had elbowed their way to the forefront of the rock world by the April 1975 release of their second album, "Straight Shooter" ,avoiding the sophomore jinx with timeless songs "Good Lovin' Gone Bad","Feel Like Makin' Love", and "Shooting Star". But as my guests Paul Rodgers, Mick Ralphs, and Simon Kirke share here, strange things can happen eventually when that much success is achieved that quickly in lives so young.
