More Bon Scott, and more Stephen King. How did the band's first UK tour go? And who ruined it by dying an untimely death? (hint: not a member of AC/DC) Why didn't they take off in America? What song did Stephen King have to sing to convince Acca Dacca to do his soundtrack? And what did he do with the gift that they gave him after the film came out?…
 
Today's episode is simply me taking us through a handful of reference material and interviews I found extremely interesting and helpful for context, but aren't related directly to any one film I'm reviewing. The Rolling Stones finish up an east coast leg of their U.S. tour leading up to Altamont. Hunter S. Thompson helps us understand the Hell's An…
 
Like early AC/DC? Good! This one's for you. Like behind-the-scenes stories about filming movies that were huge disasters? This one's also for you! There's going to be a whole other episode after this one covering the non-glory that is post-"For Those About To Rock" and pre-"Razor's Edge" AC/DC, as well as more details about the filming and producti…
 
You can't help but love the artist and the insight of Joe Walsh who opens up here, as featured in a chapter of my first audio book, about what it's like to be Ringo Starr's brother in-law, to be mentored by Who drummer Keith Moon, how love had eluded Joe for so long, plus joining the Eagles, and gifting Pete Townshend a guitar and amp.

AH MAH GAWD, we finally made it to the end of the trilogy! Killogy maybe? Yar, indeed it shall be called henceforth. The man and the film that stared out this huge endeavor of an ongoing series of historical audio documents rife with important charismatic commentary. I'm so pleased you made it to the end with me. Thank you! If you enjoy this show, …
 
Come with me inside the fertile mind of a man who came to the crossroads and took a hard left, finding himself in a very unique position – one in which he could affect change in the lives of indigenous citizens while realizing incredible change within himself, on a road that leads straight back to music Support the Show: https://www.jeffwoodsradio.…
 
This is another intense, long one! A lot of similarities to the Andy Wood story, too. Only he didn't get totally dragged by the film industry twice between '79 and '84. But I came through it all a huge fan of Bette Midler now! What??? Buy me a Book(or coffee, or pants) Alice Echols on Amazon https://pressroom.usc.edu/alice-echols/…
 
A Stevie Nicks fan's must. My intimate conversation with Stevie from the last time Fleetwood Mac were about to put out a new studio album. April 2003, in Los Angeles. Nicks opens up about the post-911 process of writing new songs, plus thoughts on her biggest regret, her proudest achievement, and so much more. Support the Show: https://www.jeffwood…
 
I tear into some old notes I wrote up with in the early days of planning what would become this very series of shows. Rolling Stone's history of its stupid self is covered, and I give you my recommendations for great rock history books and writers I believe are more than worth paying attention to. Special appearances by Raymond Chandler and Stephen…
 
We got ourselves a long, satisfying road ahead of us, discussing the Chuck Berry in a variety of celluloid presentations. Today's episode will delve into the Chess Records biopic, "Cadillac Records" with a preview of "Go Johnny, Go" which will be our next episode about Chuck. We talk plugging, payola, Alan Freed, Leonard Chess, Chuck getting ripped…
 
A nice chunk of chapter 4 from first audiobook, features music and a rock fan's must, my conversation with the rock 'n' blues legend George Thorogood who talks about getting 'white hatted' at Calgary Stampede, articulates the difference between Beatles and Stones, tells of the secret to his success (it has to do with dancing), reveals why parents a…
 
I just go for it with some of the best bits of the Motorhead story. I can't do it all justice, but there's enough media out there for you to fill in the rest of the blanks yourself, don't you think? Buy me a Book(or coffee, or pants) After recording the Airheads Watch-a-Long Commentary I decided to devote an entire episode to the main man himself, …

I yammer about my cunning misdirections used to victimize my own audience, my self-serving deviations from the methodology of any semblance of appearing to be a proper historian, and I provide you with some tools to evaluate whether or not the music podcast or youtube channel you subscribe to is a complete waste of time. Buy me a Book(or coffee, or…
 
The audio only version of the recent Zoom session with Vox Rea whose song "Dose Me Up" is one of the best of 2020. It's one of the four original songs from Vancouver's Vox Rea featured in this music special. Beautiful souls and beautiful songs. Enjoy.

Some of the few hundred interviews I've had the pleasure of doing - this episode features things included in the audio book "Radio, Records & Rockstars", from my chats with 3 Rolling Stones, Joe Walsh, Carlos Santana, Eddie Vedder and Stone Gossard of Pearl Jam, Steely Dan members Walter Becker (RIP) and Donald Fagen, plus a bit of my never before …
 
It could very well be the most cohesive sounding collection of strays ever assembled. Comprised mostly of outtakes from their storied past, some that were a decade old, some that had no vocals, others that did, most given overdubs and new vocals, plus a couple new songs, it's an album that got made because The Rolling Stones wanted to tour, but the…
 
Who isn't suffering from cabin fever right about now? Come get away (no, not sail away) with music from the British Invasion to A-maaaaaaair-i-ca.

Don Was records members of Nirvana, Sonic Youth, REM, Soul Asylum, Afghan Wigs, and Gumball as they record covers of covers that the Beatles covered in their Reeperbahn and Grosse Freiheit days when they had to sleep next to the women's toilets and get woken up by the sound of old ladies pissing every morning. Small wonder they made short work of A…

The devil's music, they called it, and kept calling it right up through the 1950's, when rhythm and blues gave way to rock and roll. The push back by the “adults” would only get worse as the music became less restrained and more shocking, to some. We begin this episode in the American south, six years to the day before Jimi Hendrix was born. EVERY …
 
Cameron Crowe would be so proud of the award I've bestowed upon him. This episode allows me to take some meandering paths. You could go so far as to accuse me of being unfocused and noncommittal to the high calling of delivering sharp, energetic and intentional content that is immediately actionable, were you an uncouth swine who cared not a'tall f…
