By listener request, Supergroups is our topic for Episode 17. We
talk about the biggest supergroups of the rock era such as Cream,
Blind Faith, The Firm, Traveling Wilburys, Highwaymen, Temple of
the Dog, Oysterhead, Asia, etc... Audience comments and
contributions are read and discussed as well, along with some
isolated conversations about Eric Clapton, Robbin Crosby, and the
never-ending criticism of our mission statement that rock as we
once knew it, is dead. Episode 17 also contains well-served
rants from Pat and Mike regarding the Metallica/Lady Gaga Grammy
We thank all of our supporters who stepped up to get behind this brand new podcast this past year. We make it a point not to focus on any one particular artist, band, or genre of music, but with that comes the reality that our show may not always appeal to everyone at the same time. The seven decades of rock and roll music along with its even longer history gives us an extremely broad canvas to create discussions on, drawing from different areas with each episode. So there is still always something for everyone.
In the previous 16 episodes we've discussed The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Prince, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Kiss, Judas Priest, Led Zeppelin, The Eagles, The Who, Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd, the Monterey Pop Festival, Woodstock, Doo Wop, The Beach Boys, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, Steely Dan, The Strokes, Ozzy Osbourne, Black Sabbath, The Doors, Patti Smith, The Ramones, Jimi Hendrix, Metallica, Guns n Roses, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, The Velvet Underground, the Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Cars, Cheap Trick, Heart, Dave Grohl, Jack White, digital streaming, the state of the music industry and record labels, the effect of rap and hip hop on rock, Neil Young, Talking Heads, Counting Crows, Boston, The Temptations, Bon Jovi, AC/DC, the Smithereens, Suzanne Vega, Van Halen, Rick Rubin, The Gun Club, Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Allman Brothers, The Mekons, UFO, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Chuck Klosterman, John Philip Sousa, Billy Joel, The Wipers, Iron Maiden, Kurt Vonnegut, Tom Waits, Thin Lizzy, the Bee Gees, Mozart, Beethoven, Puccini, Bob Marley, 5 Seconds of Summer, Twenty One Pilots, the Desert Trip concerts, aging rock stars, our favorite debut albums, soundtracks, music licensing, and our most overrated and underrated artists. We've also been joined by two special guests, author and photographer Lydia Criss and writer and director Michael Lee Nirenberg.
