"Let's Dance" was nominated for the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 1983, and if David could have moonwalked like Michael Jackson, Bowie probably would have won. it was no surprise that multi-media maven David Bowie, who seemed tailor-made then for the dawn of the MTV era in America when "Let's Dance" was released, would later be among the first to embrace computer-generated gaming and virtual reality, which David discussed at length here, reprised on the album's fortieth anniversary.

And yes, the series of clever, campy videos on the upstart MTV video channel in America undoubtedly had much to do with that staggering (15 million just in US) level of popularity for "Eliminator" (truly ironic, since manager Bill Ham had steadfastly kept ZZ Top off of U.S. television until then). But the songwriting, musicianship, modern arranging, and state-of-the-art recording on "Eliminator" which I heard that day was truly extraordinary. Billy Gibbons, Frank Bread, & the late Dusty Hill are my guests In the Studio.

When JohnMellencamp’s fourth album American Fool yielded three Top Twenty hits in April 1982, including “Hurt So Good” (#2) followed by his first #1, “Jack and Diane”, only two entities were as equally relieved as John: his ambitious English manager and his long suffering US record company. The former had negotiated John’s record deal as “Johnny Cougar”...in a move which would cause the musician considerable chagrin for the better part of ten years. John Mellencamp joins me In the Studio for this classic rock interview fof his breakthrough multi-million seller "American Fool".

It's the all-important 1981 "Don't Stop" EP by Billy Idol. In the last spasms of the London Punk Rock scene circa 1980, Generation X and their front man Billy Broad had the career arc of a bottle rocket, briefly filling English dance floors with the celebratory single "Dancing with Myself"and a cover of "Mony Mony". But Punk Rock's purpose of being a disruptive force to reset all the tumblers of popular music was practically fulfilled by then, and had no second act, so Billy Idol needed a new start. Billy Idol is my guest In the Studio.
