Rick Keene Music Scene – Number One International Interview of 2014

Don Felder just finished a tour with Styx and Foreigner.

 

don2For the former member of The Eagles – that means a small pause then right back on the road doing what he loves. Playing guitar.

It has been a long and winding road for Felder, beginning with playing in a band with Stephen Stills and ending up many years later as the co – writer of one of the most famous songs in Rock history.

Please listen to my interview with this legendary performer. An insight into the present, the past and the future.

An insight into the Hotel California. An insight into the number one international interview of 2014.

Top Ten Reasons Why I – Lawrence Gowan, Joined Styx!

‘We’re gonna party like it’s 1999 …’

Prince may have been referring to a monumental decision on the part of two musical parties. Gowan and Styx. It was in that very same year – the two powerhouses combined to form a lethal unit. One of Canada’s most successful solo artists filling a void within a group who lost one of their members.

Dennis DeYoung out – Lawrence Gowan in …

A transition eased by  Lawrence’s DeYoung-like vocals and his talent as an entertainer. A true match made in heaven. A true pairing of musical talents.

Please listen as Lawrence initiates what will be a reoccurring Top Ten List feature while at the same time – explaining his Top Ten Reasons for Joining Styx! Lawrence also explains an upcoming tour this summer. A jaunt across America featuring two other legendary acts.

Lawrence …?
