Interviewing someone who has spent time inside The Rolling Stones can be a daunting task for a journalist. With the exception of the “core four”, band members are careful about what they can and can’t say, and sometimes the interviewer may actually know what’s on the radar for the band more than the interviewee.  Bernard Fowler has been a member of the Stones’ extended band for over 25 years, singing backup vocals on both live and recorded albums since 1989,  a term that exceeds the age of most bands. His work with the Stones actually goes back to his days…

Some things are worth waiting for.  “The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus” TV special was filmed in December of 1968, but was shelved for decades as folks assumed its footage had been lost forever. Fast forward many years later, the footage was discovered in a barn in England, and 28 years later, the landmark rock and roll TV spectacular finally saw release in 1996. It was a fantastical music event, its playful traveling circus big-top atmosphere replete with clowns, trapeze aerialists and fire eaters, colorful staging and powerful performances captured some of rock’s legendary icons at the peak of…

Back in 1978, Foreigner broke through in a big way with the tremendous commercial success of their debut album, which spawned the monster hits “Feels Like The First Time” and “Cold As Ice.” This Anglo-American outfit were a permanent staple on FM radio and their explosive live performances solidified their status as formidable hard rock practitioners in the mold of Free, Humble Pie and Bad Company. The newly released Foreigner: Live At the Rainbow ‘78 (pick up a copy here) charts a band at the peak of their live prowess on the concert stage. We spoke with the band’s legendary…

“Prince had this conversation with Mo Ostin, the head of Warner Brothers Records, on the phone,” Michael Bland, who was a member of Prince’s New Power Generation, and who has played with Soul Asylum for more than 15 years, recalls of his time working with the legend in the 1990s. “They were talking about some business, and Mo brought up the album that was due. Prince told him that he hadn’t even begun work on it, and that it was just a concept. My understanding is that Mo’s response was, ‘Well, whatever, it’s ours anyway.’ Prince got off the phone…

“Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers were a big part of how we all learned how to do this thing in the first place,” Dawes’ singer and guitarist Taylor Goldsmith tells me when our conversation turns to the legendary rocker, and his band. “Benmont Tench, especially, has become a friend, but he was such an inspiration, too.” Dawes burst onto the scene from a Los Angeles suburb in 2009, and, after a brief foray into punk, quickly carved out a niche in the burgeoning Americana circuit. Inspired by the music made by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Joni Mitchell, and so…

Public Enemy’s Chuck D is on a mission. As one of the godfathers of modern hip hop, he’s has taken on the mantle of elder statesman of the genre, in an effort to ensure that it’s now 40-plus year history is held in the same esteem as that of rock and roll, country, jazz and the blues. “Rap is a truly American art form that’s been around now for almost half a century, but it’s not taken all that seriously,” he tells Rock Cellar. “I think that needs to change, and I’m going to do what I can to make…

She wasn’t a songwriter per se, but Linda Ronstadt, blessed with one of music’s most extraordinary voices, shone as a masterful stylist and interpreter, expertly navigating her way through a rich and diverse songbook. Today, sadly, Linda can no longer sing, a result of the ravages of Parkinson’s disease. Through the recent release of her first live album, Live in Hollywood, however, fans can revel in that beautiful and robust voice once more. The album finds Linda and a stellar band (featuring guitarists Danny Kortchmar and Kenny Edwards, drummer Russ Kunkel, pedal steel guitarist Dan Dugmore, bassist Bob Glaub, Little Feat keyboardist…
