  • Rock Chronicles: Joe Matera Unveils the Backstage and Beyond with Music Legends [Episode 197]

    8 MAG 2024 · Joe Matera is a returning guest to the podcast. Joe has a brand new book titled Louder Than Words: Beyond The Backstage Pass. This is a follow-up to 2021’s Backstage Pass: The Grit and the Glamour. Joe holds a unique position as a music journalist who is also a professional musician. It’s allowed him access to areas where music journalists aren’t able to. In this, his second book, Joe traces his childhood influences and meets the musicians who changed his life from heroes such as Janne Schaffer, who played on ABBA’s studio albums, to Gerry Rafferty (the genius behind ‘Baker Street’) and international superstar Bryan Adams and his songwriting partner Jim Vallance. Louder Than Words also delves into the often torturous touring life of a musician, with life on the road often leading to band break-ups or mental breakdowns. Joe also examines the impact of MTV on a generation of musicians, particularly one video by rising rock star Billy Squier that’s said to have ruined his career.  In addition to his solo music career as a singer/songwriter/guitarist, Joe Matera has written for international music magazines like Guitar Player, Guitar World, Record Collector, and Goldmine. He also writes a popular newspaper music column for the Shepparton News. His list of interviewees includes Metallica, Queen, Blondie, Bon Jovi, KISS, and Black Sabbath, to name just a few. https://www.amazon.com.au/Louder-Than-Words-Beyond-Backstage/dp/1915616123?shipTo=NZ&source=ps-sl-shoppingads-lpcontext&ref_=fplfs&psc=1&smid=ANEGB3WVEVKZB&language=en_AU   https://joematera.com/ ----------   https://www.bookedonrock.com/   https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbqUFiA-IGq97wkB5FEJB4Q   Follow The Booked On Rock with Eric Senich: https://www.facebook.com/bookedonrockpodcast https://www.instagram.com/bookedonrockpodcast https://www.tiktok.com/@bookedonrock https://twitter.com/bookedonrock   https://www.indiebound.org/indie-store-finder   Contact The Booked On Rock Podcast: thebookedonrockpodcast@gmail.com The Booked On Rock Music: “Whoosh” by https://www.crowander.com/ / “Last Train North” & “No Mercy” by https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCALNf7YM2pEGJvIHf1zxftA

    Rhythms to Ruin: The Shocking Downfall of Rock's Greatest Drummer, Jim Gordon [Episode 195]

    26 APR 2024 · Author Joel Selvin talks about his new book Drums & Demons: The Tragic Journey of Jim Gordon. Jim Gordon has been called the greatest rock drummer of all time by the world-famous musicians who played with him—John Lennon, George Harrison, Eric Clapton, Tom Petty, Frank Zappa, Steely Dan, Ringo Starr, Harry Nilsson, Joe Cocker, and many more. They knew him for his superior playing, extraordinary training and technique, preternatural intuition, perfect sense of time, and his “big fill”—the mathematically precise clatter that exploded like detonating fireworks on his drum breaks. And as best-selling author and award-winning journalist Joel Selvin reveals, the story of Jim Gordon is the most brilliant, turbulent, and wrenching rock opera ever. The very chemicals in his brain that gifted him also destroyed him. His head crowded with a hellish gang of voices screaming at him, demanding obedience, Gordon descended from the absolute heights of the rock world—playing with the most famous musicians of his generation—to working with a Santa Monica dive-bar band for $30 a night. And then he committed the most shocking crime in rock history. With full cooperation from the late Gordon's family, and based on his trademark extensive, detailed research, Joel Selvin’s account is at once an epic journey through an artist’s monumental musical contributions, a rollicking history of rock drumming, and a terrifying downward spiral into unimaginable madness that Gordon fought a valiant but losing battle against. One of the great untold stories of rock is finally being told. https://www.amazon.com/Drums-Demons-Tragic-Journey-Gordon/dp/1635768993   https://open.spotify.com/playlist/7aIHh3DwJ4coua93fbXSYs?si=a86192e0ee4c475c https://www.joelselvin.com/ ----------   https://www.bookedonrock.com/   https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbqUFiA-IGq97wkB5FEJB4Q   Follow The Booked On Rock with Eric Senich: https://www.facebook.com/bookedonrockpodcast https://www.instagram.com/bookedonrockpodcast https://www.tiktok.com/@bookedonrock https://twitter.com/bookedonrock https://www.indiebound.org/indie-store-finder   Contact The Booked On Rock Podcast: thebookedonrockpodcast@gmail.com   The Booked On Rock Music: “Whoosh” by https://www.crowander.com/ / “Last Train North” & “No Mercy” by https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCALNf7YM2pEGJvIHf1zxftA

This is an expanded edition of the book originally released by Feral House in 2006. Interest in hair metal is as strong as it was over three decades ago.

Wild quotes from the major players of the era including David Lee Roth, Jon Bon Jovi, Sebastian Bach, Tommy Lee, Nikki Sixx, Bret Michaels, Don Dokken, and many of the era’s unsung heroes.

  • U2's 'Pop' - A Lemon Or Overlooked Gem? [Episode 192]

    13 APR 2024 · Author Geoff Harkness returns to the podcast to discuss his latest book 40-Foot Lemon: The Complete Story of U2's Pop & PopMart. U2 had been on a decade-long run of hits when they released their album Pop in 1997. That included The Joshua Tree and Achtung Baby. The band’s Zoo TV tour in the early 1990s was a multimedia extravaganza that dazzled critics and sold-out venues the world over. But Pop turned out to be U2’s worst-selling album, and the accompanying PopMart tour played to half-filled stadiums and earned the nickname “Flop Mart” in the press. The Pop era was left behind, but many U2 fans never forgot what Bono once called the “best thing we've ever done.” 40-Foot Lemon: The Complete Story of U2's Pop & PopMart takes readers into the studio and onto the stage during U2’s most experimental and ambitious era. It chronicles the difficult and expensive yearlong recording of Pop, where the band worked with five producers in multiple studios on two continents, striving to create a masterpiece. Instead, with tour dates already booked, U2 handed in an unfinished album. 40-Foot Lemon follows U2 around the globe on PopMart, the biggest tour in rock history, and featuring the world’s largest TV screen, a 10-story golden arch, a sofa-sized olive on a 100-foot martini stick, and a giant lemon disco ball that did all sorts of tricks. When it was working. PopMart struggled to fill seats in the U.S., but it shattered records in Europe and South America, playing to packed stadiums and making history from Sarajevo to Santiago. 40-Foot Lemon is the definitive account of U2 at their most interesting. https://www.amazon.com/40-Foot-Lemon-Complete-Story-PopMart/dp/B0CTPY88LY   https://open.spotify.com/album/5mojJwWgWNJcY3odUGgQc3?si=CjVDdS8VSbu8QsYnujzc8w https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=61556169692238 ----------   https://www.bookedonrock.com/   https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbqUFiA-IGq97wkB5FEJB4Q   Follow The Booked On Rock with Eric Senich: https://www.facebook.com/bookedonrockpodcast https://www.instagram.com/bookedonrockpodcast https://www.tiktok.com/@bookedonrock https://twitter.com/bookedonrock https://www.indiebound.org/indie-store-finder   Contact The Booked On Rock Podcast: thebookedonrockpodcast@gmail.com The Booked On Rock Music: “Whoosh” by https://www.crowander.com/ / “Last Train North” & “No Mercy” by https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCALNf7YM2pEGJvIHf1zxftA
