John Lennon’s and The Beatles’ Rolls Royce
Bruce Johnston and Mike Love – The Beach Boys It is an opportunity for established
and up and coming artists to divulge their stories to music lovers everywhere. My love began when I was 13. I heard the
Rolling Stones‘ song Angie on the radio. Once I found out who sang it, I realized I had five Stones`albums in my room that my older sister had given me. My first pay cheque – I bought 26 more Stones `albums. I was hooked on their music along with R and B, Soul, Country, Gospel and the Blues. All the genres the Stones have been successful in.
B. B King’s Drummer Tony Coleman
Lee Rocker – The Stray Cats
Over the years, I have been fortunate enough to speak and get to know guys like Jerry Mercer, Jimmy Clench, Brian Greenway, Jim, Ritchie and David Henman of April Wine. Michel Pagliaro , Steve Hill, Sass Jordan , Maurice Raymond of the Blushing Brides, Luba, Colin James and Breen Leboeuf of Offenbach. Roger Walls,
Rod Argent, Colin Blunstone and Jim Rodford ( the Zombies) , Glen Matlock ( Sex Pistols), Martha Wainright, Scott Kempner ( The Dictators), Darryl Jones, the bass player for the Rolling Stones and Blues’ legends Buddy Guy and James Cotton have all crossed my path. I have interviewed over fifteen hundred musicians and everyone has a unique tale and unique ways of plying their crafts.
Mostly I have met many, many talented musicians who love what they do and have been unfortunate not to hit the big time. This is why I created this site. To help out.
