The Band's sublime third effort, "Stage Fright" , released in August 1970, went Top 5 and sold over a million copies. Widely viewed along with Bob Dylan, The Byrds, and Gram Parsons as fathers of the Americana musical movement, The Band also may have been one of rock's first alternative groups. In part one of this classic rock interview, main songwriter Robbie Robertson ("The Weight","The Night They Drove Ol'Dixie Down","Up on Cripple Creek","The Shape I'm In") helps me make that case.

He may have missed the cut on the Rock Hall inductions, but thirty years ago this week In the Studio put forth Todd Rundgren's nomination loud and clear by spotlighting him and his Spring 1972 double solo masterpiece" Something/ Anything?" in this interview as our episode #48.

There is ample evidence in this conclusion of our two-part In the Studio rockumentary on The Band as to why Robbie Robertson has always been one of my favorite musicians with whom to converse. A great storyteller gifted with rich language…

After listening to my chat here about his first twenty years of his half century career ( his first solo album "Runt" came out in 1970!), maybe you will agree that Todd Rundgren did more in and for rock before the age of twenty-five, in more ways, than any other musician.

Not since Robbie Robertson's "The Night They Drove Ol' Dixie Down" had anyone written and sung ( in the first person, no less ) about the American antebellum South so richly, so believably as Neil Young and Crazy Horse with "Powderfinger", originally…
