VHS Archives proclaimed that video #43, Blackie Lawless’ 1989 Power Hour show, was the best interview with the man that you’ll ever see.
Every hit deserves a sequel.*
Unfortunately by 1992, when Blackie returned with new album The Crimson Idol, MuchMusic cancelled the Pepsi Power Hour and replaced it with the half-hour Power 30. No more hour-long in-depth shows with an artist like Blackie. This shorter talk is from midday in the summer of ’92.
Erica and Blackie joke around, but still get serious. They maintain their excellent rapport from the prior encounter. Topics discussed:
- Spinal Tap’s three concerts in a single day, and Blackie’s cameo in the VHS release.
- The concept behind new CD The Crimson Idol.
- Pete Townsend.
- The price for anyone who wants to make it in the music biz.
- New video “The Idol”.
Once again well done to Erica Ehm who did the best with the limited time at hand.
