A brand new interview is up now in the Dave Report as our Featured New Interview Podcast. Just weeks before Nils joins Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band for the Superbowl, and the release of the new Bruce Springsteen CD Working On A Dream (hear the new song a few posts below and in the Dave Report New Releases Player), I’m thrilled to welcome back my good friend Nils Lofgren for a fresh conversation about a wide-range of topics. Everything from the new Bruce Springsteen album, the Superbowl past and present, working with John Madden plus cruising with him to a previous Superbowl, hanging with Celtic legend Kevin McHale, separately beating hockey king Wayne Gretzky and The King Of All Media Howard Stern in basketball (playing Howard at Nassau Coliseum), touring and working with Neil Young, memories of touring with The Who and AC/DC, and much more. Hear his new song Yankee Stadium in the New Rock Releases Player, download it at his site (NILSLOFGREN.COM), and I hope you enjoy listening to this exclusive new conversation with a truly fun, gifted, and charismatic rock legend, solo artist/Neil Young alumni/noted collaborator/Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band guitarist Nils Lofgren, now in the Dave Report.
In the Classic Interview Player this month, listen to part one in a two part feature with Jimi Hendrix bass legend Billy Cox. This conversation is timely, with the sudden passing of Mitch Mitchell, as we get an opportunity to speak with a talented bassist who worked with Jimi in several key line-ups: Gypsy Sun & Rainbows, Band Of Gypsies, and The Jimi Hendrix Experience. Billy goes beyond the usual Jimi Hendrix interviews with his experience having served in the U.S. Army with Jimi. In this fall 2002 recording, Billy shares stories from just getting to know Jimi Hendrix, their earliest jamming, playing the historic Woodstock festival, behind-the-scenes stories, and much more. Catch part one, along with an impressive through the years slideshow, collection of steaming live videos, and background, all part of this month’s issue of the CLASSIC INTERVIEW PLAYER.
Check out the Dave Report for the link to our tribute, following the sad story of losing Rick at 65 from cancer. In his honor, I’ve got a through-the-years tribute to the keyboard legend at my streaming feeds page, Dave Report Media.
Listen online now, and don’t miss part two of my interview with The Who’s Roger Daltrey here in the Classic Interview Player. All month long we’re featuring a podcast with the conclusion to this two-part series of a conversation with the legendary voice of The Who, as we celebrate the recent all-star Who VH1 Rock Honors, and their upcoming tour. This was the first time I ever interviewed Roger, and was at the time, called one of the longest radio interviews he’d done in years, clocking in at just under 30 minutes, taking place in July 2004, days before Roger and The Who arrived in the islands for a pair of memorable shows. Check out some cool photos of Roger from the Kahului and Honolulu dates as part of the feature, plus links to Who pages…
In the DAVE REPORT “Current Interview Podcasts” you can listen online and hear the brand new interview with Gene Simmons!
What a huge thrill this is, to speak with the legendary Kiss bassist/vocalist again, and to share it with you here. This time, he’s promoting his coffee-table sized book about prostitution through the ages, Ladies Of The Night. It’s out now and available at major book stores like Borders or Waldens, or through Amazon. From the caves of the stone ages to the store fronts of Amsterdam, we go through time with the oldest profession in the world. Hang with Gene and I for a conversation that’s fun and light, as well as informative, and always entertaining.
Not a topic that’s a stretch for having fun with Gene, come along as we delve deep into the historical nuance beyond the surface, and come up with a great conversation you can hear online on-demand. With his Family Jewels a monster hit, Kiss doing select cities on a “35th Anniversary Tour”, and Gene’s role with the new Jingles TV show, it’s a treat to bring you a one-on-one, revealing, candid discussion with one of the biggest names and most recognized figures in rock culture: Gene Simmons. Enjoy.

JY is a very cool guy, who’s first appearance as my guest in 2006 was a lively, story-filled fun time. It was a treat to have him sitting just a few rows behind me at the Led Zeppelin survivors reunion show at the O2 Arena in London last December. He was a guest to talk about the Zeppelin show just after we returned to the states, and now he’s back with another fascinating discussion. This is a really meaningful part of our talk, and one of those great interview moments.
If you go to my myspace page you’ll see the link to the Styx myspace, as well, and their homepage is styxworld.com.
Get tickets for their show, and enjoy this nearly 30 minute, brand new conversation, up now. Thanks for stopping by!
The Who are having a great year, with the recent star-studded VH1 Rock Honors show, international dates, and an impressive U.S. arena tour this fall. We celebrate with this two-part special starting this month only here in the Classic Interview Player!
Check out both The Who’s official homepage and the official Who myspace page for current tour details, but not long ago in August of 2004, The Who came to the islands for a pair of shows, and I was fortunate enough to do multiple interviews with Roger Daltrey, their legendary vocalist. This is part one of the first time we spoke, and it was, according to the record company and band management, the longest Roger Daltrey interview in years, a half-hour in length. Candid, insightful, covering a wide-range of topics and areas of interest, it gives a lot of insight into one of rock’s great personalities and vocalists. Listen to the podcast in the Classic Interview Player for this month’s issue, part one of this exciting conversation with a rock giant who turns out to be a giving, charismatic storyteller. I hope you enjoy it.
