 Jimmy Page, Robert Plant Climb 'Stairway...' To Rock History With Led Zeppelin InTheStudio

Oct 28, 2014, Dallas, TX -  North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands  host Jimmy Page and Robert Plant on the release of Led Zeppelin IV and Houses Of the Holy in new deluxe editions.

Anyone assuming that Led Zeppelin's allure was limited to the decade of the Seventies, or even the 20th century, simply has not been paying attention: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction 1995; Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award 2005; one-off 2007 London O2 Arena performance that had over six million ticket requests; and recipients of the Kennedy Center Honors in 2012 awarded by U.S. President Barack Obama, proving that the Led Zeppelin legacy and their music has certainly not diminished.

With the second installment of new Led Zeppelin Deluxe Editions,  Robert Plant and Jimmy Page share with InTheStudio host Redbeard the efforts of the band to continue to evolve after three monumental years (1968 -71) together.

'We just did whatever... whenever it was most appropriate, with amplifiers , without amplifiers, in a desert, on top of a Welsh mountain, wherever it was which could be indicative and show what we were all about.'  - Robert Plant

' I wanted to make music that people would respect... I knew it was good, but I hadn't got the faintest idea that it was ever going to become as big as it did... I wanted to do something that could stand the test of time.'  - Jimmy Page

SCORPIONS' Klaus Meine Discusses New Album

Scorpion's Klaus Meine on new record - "The new album sounds fantastic"

Guillaume (Gegers) from Scorpions' official french fan-club Crazyscorps (www.crazyscorps.com), recently conducted an interview with Scorpions' frontman Klaus Meine, who is currently in Sweden recording Scorpions' new album, which will be released in february or march 2015, and will be followed by an extensive world tour to celebrate the band's 50th aniversary. Klaus Meine speaks about the new Scorpions record, James Kottak's rehab process, feeling ridiculous on stage and his first groupie.

A couple of excerpts from the chat follow.

About the new record : "A few years ago, when we thought about this album, about putting out something for the die-hard fans, we were thinking about using some good old material from the 80's, find some old diamonds and pearls, and we did ! But between 2011 and now, and even this year, we kept on writing. This album is not so much about old material, in the end it's much more about new songs, and that feels really good!"

About drummer James Kottak's rehab: "We told him "At this point, it's good if you take a break, not so much for us but for yourself. And not so much about being the drummer of the Scorpions but for yourself being a family man. You should go into a rehab, clean out yourself and come back the same James we know for so many years, not only our drummer but also a friend, and a great guy".

With the limited amount of time we (or should I say he?) had to talk, it focuses mostly on the book and his philosophy, but there are few KISS-related nuggets asked and answered. Topic include:

-Why men shouldn't marry in their 20s or even 30s
-How his love for his mother cemented his work ethic
-What his wife Shannon Tweed really thinks about KISS and their music
-The Demon's definition for success
-His thoughts about penning another memoir

DON HENLEY Builds The Perfect Beast 30 Years Ago

Don Henley Unleashes A Monster 30 Years Ago

Dallas, TX - Oct 21, 2014.  North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Albums  hosts Don Henley and songwriter/ producer Danny Kortchmar for a look at the Grammy Award-winning 1984 album Building The Perfect Beast.

'Dirty Laundry' from Don Henley's first solo album I Can't Stand Still was but a mere appetizer to Henley's second post-Eagles effort Building The Perfect Beast. A monster of a success, BTPB contained the hit singles 'All She Wants To Do Is Dance',  'Sunset Grill', 'Driving With Your Eyes Closed', 'Not Enough Love In The World' and the Eighties anthem 'The Boys of Summer'.

Don Henley's solo career was validated when BTPB would go on to sell over four million albums and garner Henley's first solo Grammy Award for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance on 'The Boys of Summer'.  The accolades aside, Henley nevertheless admits to InTheStudio host Redbeard how he struggles to this day to understand the process of composing.

'The process of songwriting is still a mystery to me. I still don't know how we get from the beginning to the end of it. It just happens. I still can't quite explain it and I'm surprised, sometimes, that some of this stuff comes out of me.'

Nikki Sixx, Vince Neil, Mick Mars InTheStudio For 25th Anniversary Of Dr. Feelgood

Nikki Sixx, Vince Neil, Mick Mars Make House Call InTheStudio For 25th Anniversary Of Motley Crue's # 1 Album Dr. Feelgood

Dallas, TX - Oct 14, 2014.  North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio with Redbeard: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands  celebrates the 25th anniversary of Motley Crue's 1989 #1 seller Dr. Feelgood.

The '80s was a decade of excess and Motley Crue was its poster child and willing participant.  Their reckless abandonment and debauchery has been well documented, but what makes the Motley Crue story so fascinating is that with all the increasing mayhem came an unbelievable string of hit songs and albums.

The Crue's 1987 album Girls, Girls, Girls was a #4 seller despite the band's drug and alcohol- fueled crazy existence, but eventually, one by one, the members of Motley Crue all found help for their substance issues. With the newly found clarity, the songs which Nikki Sixx composed and which singer Vince Neil, piledriver drummer Tommy Lee, and guitar monster Mick Mars recorded including 'Kickstart My Heart', 'Same Ol' Situation', 'Without You' and the groove thing 'Dr. Feelgood' blew every previous Motley Crue standard away, notching the # 1 album in America with over six million albums sold.

Sobriety didn't stop the party on the road though, but it did allow them to remember it! The Dr. Feelgood tour would become the band's biggest production ever,as Nikki Sixx tells InTheStudio host Redbeard.

'Dr. Feelgood tour, at the time 1989 ,(cost) $325,000 a week just to break even. A million two a month, and were gone for fifteen months. So we spent about $20 million just entertaining.  So anything after that was ours.  'Wow, you need a better business plan.  What's your exit strategy?  Pee in the corner and blow everything up'.' (laughs)

Episode 51 of One On One With Mitch Lafon features an exclusive chat with the L.A. KISS managing partner and co-owner, BRETT BOUCHY. This episode was co-hosted by Talking Metal's Mark Strigl.

In this episode's only interview, L.A. KISS' Brett Bouchy discusses the Arena Football League's team inception, the working relationship with KISS' Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, the team's on-field performance and the AMC show 4th And Loud. The show takes you inside the day-to-day dealings and drama of the L.A. KISS. From the early triumphant declarations that Los Angeles' newest team was championship bound to the quick realization that the team was going to need a lot of help to win even just one game. KISS' Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons are not used to losing and being the owners of a 3-15 team (having lost their last six) seemingly did not sit well with them. AMC's 4th And Loud exposes their and the team's management frustrations. Catch all the tension, drama and decision making every Tuesday night at 10PM (9PM central) only on AMC

Metallica's James Hetfield, Kirk Hammett Take On Heavy Load, In The Studio

Dallas, TX - Sept 18, 2014.  InTheStudio.Net, the web home for North American syndicated Rock radio show InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands goes one on one with Metallica's James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett for a refreshingly honest interview about Metallica's highly anticipated 1996 follow-up to the mega-selling 'Black Album'.

After nearly a decade of hard and fast, Metallica began the '90s with what amounted to be their Sgt. Peppers, their Back in Black. Fondly referred to as Metallica's 'Black Album',  the band experienced a new level of fame, raising the obstinate band's confidence level to DEFCON 4.  So what next?

The highly defiant band had in their own way already made significant steps towards their future, most importantly with the addition of producer Bob Rock for the 'Black Album'.  Songs like 'Ain't My Bitch', 'Until It Sleeps', 'King Nothing', 'Hero of the Day' and 'Bleeding Me' had a stronger sonic punch, a broader appeal than their early speed metal. But superstar success made Metallica a big target, and  Load was not without controversy. James Hetfield tells InTheStudio host Redbeard why Metallica has always been able to look past criticism about the group.

'We're not afraid to say we're selfish. We are here playing this stuff for ourselves, and it's always been that way...We're into having the nuts to go try something else.'

"The Roots of Rock Drumming" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b5oT3DftQ7E&list=UUgleHbQwuloA5Gkkhp_YXZw
 
 
 
Over 12 years in the making, Hudson Music proudly presents The Roots of Rock Drumming, a book/DVD package that takes a behind -the-scenes look at the origins of rock n roll drumming (1948-1965), told by many of the groundbreaking drummers who were there and took part in the creation of the music. This history is presented through the eyes of the players themselves, in detailed interviews with 22 of the men who invented rock drumming.
 
Featured drummers include Bobby Morris (Louis Prima), Dick Richards (Bill Haley and His Comets), Earl Palmer (Little Richard, New Orleans & LA studio), DJ Fontana (Elvis Presley), JM Van Eaton (Sun Records studio), Buddy Harman (Roy Orbison, Nashville studio), Jerry J.I. Allison (Buddy Holly and The Crickets), Hal Blaine (LA studio), Idris Muhammad (Curtis Mayfield, NY Studio), Sam Lay (Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Chicago studio), Bernard Purdie (NY studio), Roger Hawkins (Muscle Shoals studio), Sandy Nelson (drum solo hits), and New Orleans stylists Smokey Johnson and John Boudreaux, along with British rock session players Brian Bennett, Bobby Graham, and Clem Cattini, followed by a younger generation of commentators who witnessed the rise of rock in their youth: Jaimoe, Carmine Appice, Steve Gadd, and Jim Keltner.
 
With interviews conducted by drumming great Steve Smith and Hudson Music founders Rob Wallis and Paul Siegel, and editing by noted drummer/historian Daniel Glass, this is easily one of the most important books on the history of drumming ever published. The included DVD contains excerpts from the actual interviews, and the text is presented in a coffee-table style with tons of rare photographs in a beautiful layout.
 
The included DVD contains nearly three hours of excerpts from the interviews, taking the viewer on an engaging, informative, funny, and sometimes poignant trip through the history of rock music. The full interviews will be made available online via hudsonmusic.com. It should be noted that this book contains no music notation, which makes it accessible to an even wider audience.
