Hear my new interview with Queensryche legend Geoff Tate and their new single

Last week on Tuesday the new Queensryche album Dedicated to Chaos dropped, and I was fortunate to speak with singer Geoff Tate. This new interview covers a lot of different topics, and Geoff, if you’re unfamiliar, is a truly articulate, thoughtful guy to speak with. Some of the material discussed includes the new Dedicated to Chaos album, the future of records and touring, the fading record company/publishing/intellectual property commercial model, the late Ronnie James Dio’s importance to both Queensryche and Geoff, experiences here in Hawaii, first hand accounts of being in Iraq to perform for the troops and reflections on their epic, and emotional American Soldier album, Geoff’s passion for wine and winemaking, and much more. It was a pleasure to reconnect with a gentleman whose appearance in 2007 on my afternoon show was a real treat.

Hear this full-length new interview  and their new single Get Started now at HPR in my new release blog, and also listen to the interview in the 2011 interviews player on the front page here.

May Classic Interview Player issue: Johnny Winter video interview

Recently I got to speak with Johnny Winter, in a phone interview you may have heard on HPR… It’s also in the 2011 Interviews Player on the front page.

When he hit Honolulu, it was a huge thrill and honor to hang with him. We huddled for an incredible, once-in-a-lifetime chat before he hit the stage. This reclusive, enormously important blues legend, guitar icon, symbol of rock and the enduring spirit of rebellion it should capture in it’s most primal and explosive form took time for what was a revealing, candid moment of talking story.  The image and often, sound, cultivated by this sorcerer of soulfulness is at the core of what rock is supposed to be, and I still am in awe to have this one to share.

There are also ten live videos, showcasing Johnny’s skill and talents through the years, plus a slideshow, relevant links, and background notes, all in this May issue of the Classic Interview Player.

Baring his soul for us in this new, full-length conversation recorded in April 2011 at Hawaiian Brian’s in Honolulu, I humbly offer you this intimate one-on-one moment, tucked away in the corner of the backstage area, with a hero of ages.

Hear the April Classic Interview Player issue w/my guest BB King!

What an incredible celebration as the King rolls through Hawaii for his first time since 2002.

Relive this moment in time, with a rarely heard segment from our lengthy backstage session that fateful night in November 2002 when BB King played the Blaisdell Arena in Honolulu, and was my guest for the second of two interviews that month.

For nearly a half hour, BB and I shared rock stories and memories. It was the follow-up to a phoner to promote the show, and a small portion of sound clips was used through the years. Once, a long-form extract based on those same sound clips was presented. It was nearly half of the material recorded that evening. Now, for the first time in over five years, hear that long-form extract, as heard previously on a single broadcast. It’s a fitting way for our April Classic Interview Player issue to honor BB as he returns to the Blaisdell April 27 in Honolulu.

Accompanying the interview, see a cool through the years slide show, including vintage BB pics from his early years that aren’t often seen.

Perhaps best of all, catch 10 live videos, featuring not only fun and classic BB TV appearances, but also BB sharing the stage with Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray and Jimmie Vaughan, Buddy Guy, Ray Charles, Little Richard, Billy Preston, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, James Brown, U2, and many others. It’s a video tribute well-worth digging into.

Enjoy and thanks for stopping by. Be sure to add me on Facebook. Mahalo.

It was a privilege to spend time with the one and only Johnny Rzeznik of the Goo Goo Dolls today in an incredible hotel rooftop suite at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, recording a fairly long interview — over twenty minutes. Listen for some on HPR tomorrow, and see him rock the Pro Bowl later today. It was a very special conversation with a down-to-earth, charming songwriter/performer/musician whose touched audiences around the world and across radio formats, transcending genres while genuinely impacting fans through meaningful lyrics and songs. Hear about it and more in this special chat I look forward to sharing!
