Styx co-founder Dennis DeYoung, lifer James "JY" Young, and then recently recruited Alabama boy Tommy Shaw all join me here with current Styx keyboardist/vocalist Lawrence Gowan In the Studio for the early days of being the perennial opening act, saddled with the curse "big in the Flyover States", all the while writing and recording "Fooling Yourself","Come Sail Away","Miss America", "Man in the Wilderness", and "Grand Illusion" on the forty-fifth anniversary of "The Grand Illusion" release.

The Kinks were probably a lock for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction for their British Invasion Sixties output alone, but the first half of the Seventies were tough going for them until reclaiming their rock bona fides starting with February…

How did Pink Floyd evolve from the sublime introspection of "Dark Side of the Moon" in 1973 to the madness and despair of "The Wall" six years later? David Gilmour, Nick Mason, and Roger Waters explore the dark, ominous, yet vitally important transitional musical missing link, January 1977's Animals here in my classic rock interview, an album that was highly anticipated.

By 1976, it was go big or go home for this intrepid six-man band from Topeka, Kansas. Because of the hit "Carry On Wayward Son" ( submitted by the prolific Kerry Livgren even as the band was packing up to leave rehearsals ) and radio hits "Miracles Out of Nowhere","The Wall", "Cheyenne Anthem", and "What's On My Mind ", Leftoverture gave Kansas rock statehood to the tune of over four million sold. Livgren is joined by Richard Williams, Phil Ehart, Steve Walsh, & the late original Kansas violinist/singer Robbie Steinhardt here In the Studio.

"We did two hundred sixty-five shows that year 1975," says Bob Seger with a mixture of pride and amazement, as explanation on why it was so hard to find the solitary time necessary to write well-crafted songs prior to "Night Moves". The double disc "Live Bullet", recorded in Fall 1975 and released six months later, provided that precious period...by October 1976 with Night Moves containing "Rock and Roll Never Forgets","Main Street","The Fire Down Below","Come to Poppa", and the title song which Bob calls "...a little novelette."

In the Summer of 1975, a year before releasing what quickly became the biggest selling debut album in music history, the band Boston did not even exist . A year later Tom Scholz's seven year basement tapes would emerge out of nowhere to re-write the record books on popularity and profits ...(more) Tom Scholz is my guest for Boston's 45th anniversary.

With back-to-back quadruple platinum albums "Leftoverture" in 1976 and "Point of Know Return" barely eighteen months later, the band Kansas was assured of permanent statehood in rock history.
