If only the world's most acclaimed rock musicians voted for election into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Little Feat would have been inducted on the first ballot years ago. The list of famous Little Feat fans included the Rolling Stones' Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, Bob Seger, Bonnie Raitt, Robert Palmer, and Robert Plant just for starters. But for most of the Seventies, they didn't sell many albums...

The wonderful music on Supertramp's "Even in the Quietest Moments", peaking at #16 on Billboard and #12 in their native UK, sounds to my ear as vital today as ever, somehow frozen in time like the snow atop the grand piano on the album's cover. One of the Supertramp singer/ songwriters, guitarist Roger Hodgson joins me here In the Studio for a rare classic rock interview while sharing spectacular live performances from transitional album Crisis? What Crisis? plus sublime songs "Give a Little Bit","From Now On","Downstream" and "Even in the Quietest Moments" on that album's forty-fifth anniversary.

Realize that "Songs from the Wood" by Jethro Tull, released way back in February 1977, was already the English folk/progressive rockers' tenth album! There was nothing that sounded remotely like the ancient pastoral songs and instrumentation on "Songs from the Wood" then on the all-important American rock radio. Ian Anderson is my guest In the Studio on "Songs from the Wood" 's forty-fifth anniversary.

Meat Loaf has died at age 74. If you think the songs of composer Jim Steinman are populated by fantastic people and places right out of central casting, they ain't got nothin' on the real life sojourn of the 300 pound interior lineman dressed in a prom tuxedo named Marvin Lee Aday from Dallas Texas, aka Meat Loaf. Here is a rare colorful classic rock conversation with the man.

Ted Nugent's " Free for All" changed the national radio reception and overamped its way to #24 on the Billboard album chart in Fall 1976, becoming his second consecutive multi-platinum seller. Tyrannosaurus Ted is my guest In the Studio.

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.

"The 'Burning of Bowling Green' ," Outlaws singer/songwriter/rhythm guitarist Henry Paul recalled aloud, invoking an almost mythical status like some Civil War battlefield to the 1975 Ohio music festival where we first met just weeks after the release of their first album, The Outlaws , which contained the late Hughie Thomasson and Monte Yoho's "There Goes Another Love Song" and the instant Southern Rock classic "Green Grass and High Tides".

"Outlandos d'Amour' has a certain grotesque, naive charm about it," Sting confesses in this interview about the Police debut,"but 'Regatta de Blanc' was infinitely a much better record."
