DON DOKKEN and GEORGE LYNCH Dispute 'Breaking The Chains'

Artist: 

On recent episode of THE CLASSIC METAL SHOW, guitarist George Lynch and vocalist Don Dokken have traded barbs regarding their debut release in Dokken, BREAKING THE CHAINS. On the December 6th edition of THE CLASSIC METAL SHOW, Lynch was asked about which album he wishes he could take out of his catalog, to which he answered BREAKING THE CHAINS. Below is what Lynch had to say:

GEORGE LYNCH: I was going to say BREAKING THE CHAINS, quite honestly.

CLASSIC METAL SHOW: Really? You don't like BREAKING THE CHAINS?

GEORGE LYNCH: I did like it when we originally recorded it, but then (Don) Dokken got ahold of it and destroyed it. He basically sent us home from Europe and said, "OK guys, we're done. I'm just going to stay back and hang out with my girlfriend." I was thinking, "OK." What he did was he stayed in the studio when we were gone and had his way with the record, which was (to) pump up all the vocals, take all my guitars out. Destroy the mix. It just sounded weak and wimpy. It just killed it. It was actually pretty muscular and pretty tough when we were in the studio. It was down in the basement at Dierk's studio in Germany. The Scorpions were upstairs. Rory Gallagher was upstairs. These guys wanted to hear what was going on, so they would bring down the guitar player from Scorpions and Rory. They would sit there. I was so proud of my guitar tracks. Me and Michael Wagoner were holed up there. We'd board the place up. We wouldn't let anybody in. I had a 24 track tube machine and an MC500 board. I had one of Richie Blackmore's old cabinets and a Rangemaster treble booster and my Tiger guitar. It sounded so good. It was the first record I'd ever done, really, so we were committed to making a statement. Quite honestly, the sound was just unbelievable. Then when it was all done, he did what he did to it and he killed it. It's very hard for me to listen to because of that, because I knew what it was and nobody will ever hear that unfortunately.

Vocalist Don Dokken appeared on January 3rd edition of THE CLASSIC METAL SHOW, and was asked about Lynch's claims that Don stayed behind and remixed the record behind his back. Don's response is below:

CLASSIC METAL SHOW: We talked to George (Lynch) a month ago, and he said that with BREAKING THE CHAINS, you stayed behind in Germany and remixed the record behind his back.

DON DOKKEN: That's a typical George Lynch statement. No, it wasn't Bob (Ludwig, engineer). I love that he says, "behind his back". I guess George forgot that when we did BREAKING THE CHAINS, he wasn't in the band. For the record...George...what is he smoking? He must be smoking something.  When I did BREAKING THE CHAINS, it was a solo record deal. George was not in the band. Mick was not in the band. Juan Crocier's picture is on the album, but he didn't play on it. Peter Baltes did because Juan missed the deadline to get to Germany. I had Peter play the bass tracks. It was a solo album, and the album came out originally in Germany, and it was called "Don Dokken BREAKING THE CHAINS". I have a copy. It's a picture of me on the cover and it says "Don Dokken". Now, George...I asked him to be in the band. He said no. I asked Mick if he wanted to be in the band. He said no. They were going to do something else. They were going to do Exciter. So for him to say "behind our back", he was paid $2500 to play on the record and that's it. He had nothing to do with Dokken. He wasn't in the band. He'd just come to Germany. We did a little tour. I paid him. He went back. He thought he was going to join Ozzy. That didn't work out. So he basically had nowhere to go, no band, and he was broke. That;'s when he came back and said, "I want to be in the band", because Mick had decided to come and play with me. To say that I did anything "behind his back", I don't know what that means because he wasn't in the band. He had nothing to do with Dokken. The guy is high.

38 SPECIAL Founding Members Jeff Carlisi, Donnie Van Zant Take Aim on '80s Best

Artist: 
 
38 Special Founding Members Jeff Carlisi, Donnie Van Zant Take Aim on '80s Best

Dallas, TX - January 2, 2015.  North American syndicated Rock radio program and website InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands  heads south to get the 38 Special story from founding members Jeff Carlisi and Donnie Van Zant on the 35th anniversary of their breakthrough album Rockin' Into The Night.

Hailing from the Southern Rock capital of the world, Jacksonville, Florida, and with the connection to Ronnie Van Zant of Southern Rock royalty Lynyrd Skynyrd, 38 Special found themselves in an advantageous position.  But after two albums, not much had materialized until the release of 1980's breakthrough Rockin' Into The Night and the platinum follow-ups, 1981's Wild-Eyed Southern Boys and 1982's Special Forces.  

Jeff Carlisi shares with InTheStudio host Redbeard how 38 Special drew a bead on the musical bullseye and came into their own with hits including 'Rockin' Into the Night','Hold On Loosely','Fantasy Girl', and 'Caught Up in You'.
                                            
'38 Special found a bit of a focus with the third album Rockin' Into The Night and then Wild-Eyed Southern Boys , which was the first platinum record for the band. We had finally developed a style of music that was not typically Southern in the sense of three chord shuffles or those type of things, but it was the attitude, the way Southern musicians approached there music.' - Jeff Carlisi

38 Special / InTheStudio program is available now to STREAM at:

Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Nick Mason on PINK FLOYD's Epic 1979 Album The Wall

Artist: 

Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Nick Mason Deconstruct Pink Floyds Epic 1979 Album The Wall @ 35

Dallas, TX - December 17, 2014.  North American syndicated Rock radio program and website InTheStudio: The Stories Behind Historys Greatest Rock Bands revisits the second highest-selling album in history, Pink Floyds The Wall  on its 35th anniversary.

By the late Seventies, Pink Floyd had all the commercial success a band could imagine, but not without battle wounds. The relationships between composer/ bassist Roger Waters and the other band members, as well as between Waters and the audience, had been strained and distorted by the time of The Wall. The only thing left was the music.  

In a two-part, two week special InTheStudio radio program, host Redbeard speaks with The Wall architect Roger Waters, singer/guitarist David Gilmour, and percussionist Nick Mason about building one of RocknRolls crowning recording, live production, and cinematic achievements. 

Based on a music superstars plunge into the dark side of success which eventually results in absolute isolation, both emotionally and physically, from the audience he or she purports to attract, Roger Waters sadly recounts the autobiographical nature of The Wall  and the defining moment he remembers it coming to life.

                                            
During a show in Montreal I finally got so angry  that I spat at this child, he was 14 or 15 I suppose. When I got off stage afterwards I thought, What have I been reduced to? And what has happened to the relationship between the band and the audience?  So, The Wall was something that I had experienced very powerfully through most of that (Animals) tour, but specifically on that day.  - Roger Waters

InTheStudio can be heard on over 40 radio stations across North America.             

PINK FLOYD  The Wall / InTheStudio programs air the weeks of Dec 15th & Dec 22nd.

Roger Hodgson Investigates SUPERTRAMP's Crime of the Century On 40th Anniversary

Artist: 

Roger Hodgson Investigates Supertramp's Crime of the Century On 40th Anniversary

Dallas, TX - Dec 10, 2014. North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio: The Stories Behind Historys Greatest Rock Bands returns to the scene of  Crime of the Century the breakout album from Supertramp.

Having formed under rather strange circumstances and sparking three name changes, Supertramp would wander through the early 70s progressive rock sound with two rather obscure albums, but it would be their third, Crime of the Century  in 1974 that would produce the hit songs Bloody Well Right and Dreamer, and in so doing, forge the sound for Breakfast in America s worldwide #1 success five years later.

Multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Roger Hodgson describes to InTheStudio program host Redbeard the creative mindset of the band during this period.

(Crime of the Century) was a magical period for Supertramp... the whole process of Crime was kinda us finding our feet as writers and as people. During that, we worked pretty closely together on School and Bloody Well Right in particular. From Crisis? onward we definitely wrote separately. It seemed that who we were, as people, became more defined. 

SUPERTRAMP Crime of the Century/InTheStudio interview is available now to STREAM at: http://www.inthestudio.net/redbeards-blog/supertramp-crime-century-40th-anniversary-roger-hodgson/

Rich Davenport's Rock Show - MICHAEL SCHENKER and STEVE HUNTER


GUITAR LEGENDS MICHAEL SCHENKER AND STEVE HUNTER INTERVIEWED ON RICH DAVENPORT'S ROCK SHOW

Rich Davenport's Rock Show this week features in-depth interviews with legendary guitar heroes  Michael Schenker (UFO, Scorpions, MSG) and Steve Hunter (Alice Cooper, Lour Reed, Peter Gabriel), and is available now for streaming at this link
http://www.mixcloud.com/richdav1/rich-davenports-rock-show-michael-schenker-steve-hunter-alice-cooper-lou-reed-interviews/

First up, Michael Schenker talks about what fans can expect from the set list as his 'Bridge The Gap' tour hits the UK this week. Michael discusses working with former Scorpions compadres Francis Bucholz (bass) and Herman Rarebell (drums) in his Temple of Rock band, and also outlines the way in which both the band, and his songwriting partnerships with vocalist Doogie White (ex Rainbow, Yngwie Malmsteen) and rhythm guitarist / keyboard player Wayne Findlay, have developed on forthcoming new album 'Spirit on a Mission'. Michael chooses a song from 'Bridge the Gap', and you'll also hear a Scorpions classic from the 'Temple of Rock Live In Europe' album.

The show also features tracks from both support bands for Michael's UK tour, Western Sand, a promising UK rock outfit, and State Villains (playing the London date), who feature Michael's son, Tyson Schenker, on guitar.

Steve Hunter, whose sublime guitar playing has graced albums and tours from the likes of Alice Cooper, Lou Reed and Peter Gabriel, also drops in to discuss his two most recent releases, studio album 'The Manhattan Blues Project'(featuring guests including  Joe Satriani, Joe Perry and Johnny Depp), and live CD/DVD 'Tone Poems Live'. In the words of guitar hero Joe Satriani, "Steve Hunter is a great guitarist; and his influence on the American rock guitar style is huge,' and you'll hear exactly what Satch means on tracks from both 'Tone Poems Live' and 'The Manhattan Blues Project.

The show's regular Phil Lynott tribute feature this week puts the spotlight on late Small Faces/Faces keyboard player Ian McLagan, who passed away this week, with a track from Thin Lizzy's 'Fighting' album featuring McLagan on piano.

You can also listen on Thursday 11th December 07:00-09:00 on www.totalrock.com, and on hot new Texas rock and metal station KXZR Radio at www.kxzr.fm

RockPages Talks To TRIUMPH

Artist: 

Rockpages Web Magazine did an exclusive interview with TRIUMPH's bassist Mike Levine in the wake of the 30th anniverssary since the release of their album "Thunder Seven" and Levine didn't rule out the possibility of doing another TRIUMPH album in the future. Here's the excerpt (for the full link of the interview check here: Rockpages.gr - Interviews - Triumph - )
 
Rockpages.gr: You did a reunion show in Sweden and another one in the States back in 2008. Is there any chance of you doing a full tour and why not record one last album?
Mike Levine: We sit down every couple of months, Gil, Rik and I'and always talking about thee possibility of doing something again. When we did those shows in 2008, everything went so well that we decided to do a full tour. We had booking agents and managers working around the clock to arrange a tour in North America and just when we were ready to begin rehearsals, the recession hit so hard that we all got nervous about the economy and whether anyone could be successful on the road under these circumstances. So, we said: “well, let’s just wait and see how the things will turn out in the coming months and then decide what we will do”. Later on, we just kinda lost our enthusiasm and'well, here we are after 6 years. I am not sayiing that we are not going to tour ever but it’s highly unlikely. As far as recording'I am asking myself: “Does anybody really wwanna hear something new from us?”'I don’t know. Onee thing is certain. If we decide to record once again, it would have to be a bunch of excellent songs'nothing less. We haven’t reached that point yet but as our song goes'Never Say Never.

InTheStudio - BRYAN ADAMS 'Reckless'

Artist: 

Bryan Adams Recalls Reckless Success On 30th Anniversary

Dallas, TX - November 25, 2014.  North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands celebrates the 30th anniversary of Bryan Adams' 80s blockbuster Reckless.

In 1984 Bryan Adams found himself perched on the edge of a Rock 'N' Roll plateau. His third album Cuts Like A Knife had cracked the American Top 20 in sales and, thanks to MTV, Bryan's face was as well known as his rough-hewn voice. It was in November of that year when Bryan Adams released Reckless , an album that produced six Top 20 singles, 'Run to You', 'Somebody', the # 1 hit 'Heaven', 'Summer of 69', 'One Night Love Affair' and the duet 'It's Only Love' with legendary soul singer Tina Turner. The Reckless album went on to sell more than 12 million copies, making Bryan Adams one of the hottest performers in the world.

InTheStudio host Redbeard asks Bryan how, at age 24, was he able to write and produce such a comprehensive international hit album?                                                 
,
'It was like one big brain. Everyone was thinking the same thing. And that's what made this record work. Everybody was pulling in the same direction... When you make a record you don't actually think you're making a hit record. You wanna hope people like your music. When we were recording Reckless I never thought it would do what it did. It's just as simple as that.'
