NEW CLASSIC INTERVIEW PLAYER AUGUST ISSUE OUT TODAY: THE BAND AMERICA’S SINGER/GUITARIST/SONGWRITER DEWEY BUNNELL AND I IN A TWO-PART INTERVIEW SPECIAL

Classic Interview August cover

Join me in the Classic Interview Player this month for a fun conversation with America’s Dewey Bunnell. The voice of “A Horse With No Name”, one of the great American songwriters who penned hits in the group America, and a band with two August dates in the islands. This interview reveals so much about the history of the group: times they recorded here in the state of Hawaii, working with Beatles’ producer George Martin, performing gigs with The Who, Pink Floyd, and others, and memorable star encounters, including one with John Wayne that is priceless to hear about.

I hope you enjoy what is a great moment in time with myself and a truly wonderful artist to interview. Listen on-demand all month in the Classic Interview Player, plus enjoy some interview background, a slideshow, several incredible live videos, links and more.
