with 100,000 people for Live Aid US, I stood back of center stage about ten feet behind Phil Collins who was seated at a black grand piano. Beside me looking over his 3"x 5" recipe cards with notes for stage announcements stood Jack Nicholson. Collins, fresh off the Concorde supersonic jet which had conveyed him from his earlier performance at the London Live Aid concert, sang his surprise movie hit "Against All Odds" and then "the other song I know on piano"...

For the story of INXS' breakthrough album "Listen Like Thieves" in 1985 ( Billboard sales peak at #11), the band's keyboard player/ songwriter Andrew Farriss, guitar-playing brother Tim Farriss, and guitar/sax man Kirk Pengilly, tell of the tough and tender early days forming in the most remote city in the world, Perth Australia; surviving the one-nighters there, in Sydney and in Melbourne; allying with a talented singer from Hong Kong-via-Hollywood, the mercurial snakehipped Michael Hutchence;

Thirty-five years ago ZZ Top's"Afterburner" came out. But don't go looking for it in the 2019 ZZ Top rockumentary film "That Little Ol' Band from Texas" .That otherwise well-done pastiche of just some of the chapters in this colorful trio's fifty year telenovella implied that all meaningful recording by ZZ Top wrapped at the conclusion of "Eliminator" way back in 1983. Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill, and Frank Beard join me here In the Studio on the thirty-fifth anniversary of "Sleeping Bag","Stages","Woke Up with Wood", and "Planet of Women".

It was the mid-Eighties, and rolling the streets of Dallas/Ft.Worth felt less right in a big-block muscle car and just right in a fire-engine red BMW M3 with The Cult "Love" cassette permanently jammed in the dash player blasting "She Sells Sanctuary","Rain","Nirvana", and "Big Neon Glitter". Hard to believe it was thirty-five years ago.

"Hey now, hey now...". What a great band. Formed from the stray strands of New Zealand's Split Enz, Crowded House had up to four lead singers and the brilliant songs of Neil Finn. Not even the almost criminally inept career direction of their…

One of the priceless pieces of twenty-five years of rock history, almost criminally tossed in a dumpster by the new owners of Q102 Dallas/Ft Worth in August 1998, was a tape cartridge that I had dubbed from a cassette containing a live medley…

When the song "Money for Nothing" by Dire Straits became a worldwide hit in Summer 1985, the album Brothers in Arms spent a stunning nine weeks as the #1-seller in the US in 1985, eventually selling a staggering 26,000,000 copies worldwide. This kind of celebrity could not have happened to a more reluctant rock star than Dire Straits leader Mark Knopfler, and trust me, there is absolutely no way to prepare for what comes next.
