Rock Chronicles: Joe Matera Unveils the Backstage and Beyond with Music Legends [Episode 197]

5/8/2024
Joe Matera is a returning guest to the podcast. Joe has a brand new book titled Louder Than Words: Beyond The Backstage Pass. This is a follow-up to 2021’s Backstage Pass: The Grit and the Glamour. Joe holds a unique position as a music journalist who is also a professional musician. It’s allowed him access to areas where music journalists aren’t able to. In this, his second book, Joe traces his childhood influences and meets the musicians who changed his life from heroes such as Janne Schaffer, who played on ABBA’s studio albums, to Gerry Rafferty (the genius behind ‘Baker Street’) and international superstar Bryan Adams and his songwriting partner Jim Vallance. Louder Than Words also delves into the often torturous touring life of a musician, with life on the road often leading to band break-ups or mental breakdowns. Joe also examines the impact of MTV on a generation of musicians, particularly one video by rising rock star Billy Squier that’s said to have ruined his career. In addition to his solo music career as a singer/songwriter/guitarist, Joe Matera has written for international music magazines like Guitar Player, Guitar World, Record Collector, and Goldmine. He also writes a popular newspaper music column for the Shepparton News. His list of interviewees includes Metallica, Queen, Blondie, Bon Jovi, KISS, and Black Sabbath, to name just a few.

Rhythms to Ruin: The Shocking Downfall of Rock's Greatest Drummer, Jim Gordon [Episode 195]

4/25/2024
Author Joel Selvin talks about his new book Drums & Demons: The Tragic Journey of Jim Gordon. Jim Gordon has been called the greatest rock drummer of all time by the world-famous musicians who played with him—John Lennon, George Harrison, Eric Clapton, Tom Petty, Frank Zappa, Steely Dan, Ringo Starr, Harry Nilsson, Joe Cocker, and many more. They knew him for his superior playing, extraordinary training and technique, preternatural intuition, perfect sense of time, and his “big fill”—the mathematically precise clatter that exploded like detonating fireworks on his drum breaks. And as best-selling author and award-winning journalist Joel Selvin reveals, the story of Jim Gordon is the most brilliant, turbulent, and wrenching rock opera ever. The very chemicals in his brain that gifted him also destroyed him. His head crowded with a hellish gang of voices screaming at him, demanding obedience, Gordon descended from the absolute heights of the rock world—playing with the most famous musicians of his generation—to working with a Santa Monica dive-bar band for $30 a night. And then he committed the most shocking crime in rock history. With full cooperation from the late Gordon's family, and based on his trademark extensive, detailed research, Joel Selvin’s account is at once an epic journey through an artist’s monumental musical contributions, a rollicking history of rock drumming, and a terrifying downward spiral into unimaginable madness that Gordon fought a valiant but losing battle against. One of the great untold stories of rock is finally being told.

The tour brought in $173.5 million, making it the highest-grossing tour of either band’s career. In 2016, Guns N’ Roses launched their Not In This Lifetime...Tour. The tour was 2016's highest-earning per-city global concert tour and the fourth-highest-grossing overall that year. In 2017, the tour ranked as the second highest-grossing worldwide tour and the band continued to bring in huge numbers through 2023. American Hairmetal: Can’t Get Enough features hundreds of photographs of bands including Poison, Cinderella, Mötley Crüe, Skid Row, Ratt, and Stryper. Wild quotes from the major players of the era including David Lee Roth, Jon Bon Jovi, Sebastian Bach, Tommy Lee, Nikki Sixx, Bret Michaels, Don Dokken, and many of the era’s unsung heroes.

U2's 'Pop' - A Lemon Or Overlooked Gem? [Episode 192]

4/13/2024
Author Geoff Harkness returns to the podcast to discuss his latest book 40-Foot Lemon: The Complete Story of U2's Pop & PopMart. U2 had been on a decade-long run of hits when they released their album Pop in 1997. That included The Joshua Tree and Achtung Baby. The band’s Zoo TV tour in the early 1990s was a multimedia extravaganza that dazzled critics and sold-out venues the world over. But Pop turned out to be U2’s worst-selling album, and the accompanying PopMart tour played to half-filled stadiums and earned the nickname “Flop Mart” in the press. The Pop era was left behind, but many U2 fans never forgot what Bono once called the “best thing we've ever done.” 40-Foot Lemon: The Complete Story of U2's Pop & PopMart takes readers into the studio and onto the stage during U2’s most experimental and ambitious era. It chronicles the difficult and expensive yearlong recording of Pop, where the band worked with five producers in multiple studios on two continents, striving to create a masterpiece. Instead, with tour dates already booked, U2 handed in an unfinished album. 40-Foot Lemon follows U2 around the globe on PopMart, the biggest tour in rock history, and featuring the world’s largest TV screen, a 10-story golden arch, a sofa-sized olive on a 100-foot martini stick, and a giant lemon disco ball that did all sorts of tricks. When it was working. PopMart struggled to fill seats in the U.S., but it shattered records in Europe and South America, playing to packed stadiums and making history from Sarajevo to Santiago. 40-Foot Lemon is the definitive account of U2 at their most interesting.

Journey's Rise, Fall, and Return [Episode 187]

3/29/2024
Since exploding on the scene in the late 1970s, Journey has inspired generations of fans with hit after hit. But hidden under this rock ‘n’ roll glory is a complex story of ambition, larger-than-life personalities, and clashes. In his new book Livin' Just to Find Emotion: Journey and the Story of American Rock, David Hamilton Golland unearths the band’s true and complete biography, based on over a decade of interviews and thousands of sources. When Steve Perry joined jazz-blues progressive rock band Journey in 1977, they saw a rise to the top, and their 1981 album Escape hit #1. But Perry’s quest for control led to Journey’s demise. They lost their record contract and much of their audience. After the unlikely comeback of “Don’t Stop Believin’” in movies, television, and sports stadiums, a new generation discovered Journey. A professional historian, Golland dispels rehashed myths and also shows how race in popular music contributed to their breakout success. As the economy collapsed and as people abandoned the spirit of Woodstock in the late 70s, Journey used the rhythm of soul and Motown to inspire hope in primarily white teenagers’ lives. Decades later, the band and their signature song remain classics, and now, with singer Arnel Pineda, they are again a fixture in major stadiums worldwide.
