Jim Peterik isn't an every day name. But if it wasn't for his songwriting. Other bands of Classic Rock wouldn't have become every day names. Jim Peterik. Unless you're a faithful fan of The Ides of March. Jim's name isn't top of mind. But his Classic Rock is. He's the writing instrument that put 38 Special, Sammy Hagar and Survivor on the radio map. Jim's got a new catalog coming out in January. Last Band Standing. Look into Jim's career. His participation with music beyond the first step proves that passion for lyrics and riffs has a way of getting cranked up years after the first appearance. He's a true Rock n Roll hero.

Consistently strange. This generation. Not an ounce of guilt when stealing music from the web. Yet when Bono and U2 give it away. Free of charge. No strings attached. Fans of Classic Rock feel violated. And that's why Bono has stepped from behind the curtain and apologized to ITunes and Apple people.

What did I say inside the I Heart Radio Studio that would force Dennis Deyoung to stop our conversation and ask me to join his current tour? That answer is coming up in the Unplugged and Totally Uncut interview to be posted soon. But right now... what kept STYX from being America's Led Zeppelin? I've hosted countdowns and specialty programs since 1976, Rarely was there ever a show that didn't include Styx and or Dennis DeYoung. For years radio served as the social media between the artist and listener. Today the artists are reconnecting by physically sharing incredible conversation. Dennis isn't in the sticks with his lyrics... He's back on stage making music work. Through radio you think you know. But how much do you realize? The journey isn't complete until the man behind the curtain explains who what where and why.

Ripping through ITunes and YouTube. It's kept plenty of Classic Rock maker's pumped up at full volume. Missing isn't the music. But rather the history. Who and what is a John Lennon? When and why did David Bowie decide? Where did it begin for Alice Cooper? Music's roots fill empty space. Which is why Darren Davis has turned his comic book printing presses into a new age maker of preserving Rock n Roll history.

David Bowie has turned to Jazz. The purpose behind the decision is every reason why he's the true Artist he is... David Bowie. Innovator, collaborator, Classic Rocker turned Jazz musician. The purpose of the track is to help influence Bowie fans to participate with November 18th Black Friday version of Record Store Day. Where fans of music step away from ITune, Amazon and Walmart dot com and purchase rare collectibles from the people that make music. Sue from David Bowie will be printed on limited edition ten inch vinyl.
