Queen's Brian May, Roger Taylor Channel Freddie Mercury Forever

Dallas, TX - November 12, 2014.  North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands rules the airwaves with rock royalty, Queen songwriters, guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor, on the release of a new impressive compilation that explains why fans will love Queen forever.

Queen celebrated their 40th anniversary in 2011 with a hit musical We Will Rock You, a highly successful international tour pairing Queen with Bad Company and Free singer Paul Rodgers, and a renewed sense of more to come.  Much to their surprise, Queen would find themselves on the popular TV program American Idol performing with a young flamboyant contestant, singer Adam Lambert, who would join Queen this year to tour America, Australia and New Zealand with the band selling out arenas everywhere.

Meanwhile Brian May and Roger Taylor embarked on a new project, Queen Forever, a unique undertaking that would bring the iconic Queen lead singer Freddie Mercury, who passed away late in 1991, into the 21st century with classic Queen songs plus three never-released Freddie Mercury discoveries with Queen, the spectacular power ballad 'Love Kills', Brian May's 'Let Me in Your Heart Again', even a Freddie Mercury duet with Michael Jackson, all previously unreleased.

Brian May shares with InTheStudio program host Redbeard the concept behind Queen Forever.


 
'It's an unusual compilation album really, this collection of songs which are not the most obvious ones, but that we feel crystallize certain moments for us. And the icing on the cake is these extra tracks which really no one has ever heard.'

QUEEN Forever/InTheStudio interview is available now to STREAM at: 'http://www.inthestudio.net/redbeards-blog/queen-forever-brian-may-roger-taylor/

Pink Floyd's David Gilmour & Nick Mason Navigate The Endless River  With InThe Studio's Redbeard

Dallas, TX - November 11, 2014.  InTheStudio.Net the web home for North American syndicated Rock radio program InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands  wades into the deep end with David Gilmour and Nick Mason of Pink Floyd to sail through their surprising new album, The Endless River.

The initial notice was innocuous enough, a single tweet among millions sent that day last Summer, washed up on the shore like some electronic message in a bottle: Pink Floyd, one of the world's most popular rock bands ever, would be delivering their first album in 20 years containing studio recordings by guitarist/singer David Gilmour, drummer Nick Mason, but also the late Pink Floyd keyboard player Rick Wright, who died in 2008.  For hardcore fans this was the music that had been rumored to exist, but never officially released until now. The questions rushed like river rapids: after telling InTheStudio host Redbeard during two previous interviews that he was 'out of Pink Floyd, and I will stay out', what had changed David Gilmour's mind?

In an in-depth interview Gilmour and Mason reveal the inspiration, motivation, and lengthy timeline for The Endless River ; how it came to be, why it was shelved initially and what inspired the two to finish what they started so many years ago with fellow bandmate the late Richard Wright.

'We could not have made this record 20 years ago. It would have been impossible. I'm very happy to be releasing this material now. It would have seemed very incomplete to me if we didn't put something out.'  -  David Gilmour

'I think on this record, there's an element of homage and a recognition of Rick. It's perhaps making up for lack of recognition prior to this. He's always perhaps been the unsung hero.'   -  Nick Mason

 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".

-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 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 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)

He fills in the blanks from how he got the gig in Night Ranger and managed to juggle it with Rock of Ages on Broadway, and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra - all at the same time.
