Not even disconnections and bad internet can keep a good man down. Robert Lawson — author of great listener’s guides on Cheap Trick, Nazareth and The Guess Who — persevered and eventually defeated the internet demons plaguing the start of Friday’s show. Hang in there folks — it starts rough but gets better!
This free-flowing chat covers numerous topics:
- The Guess Who and Burton Cummings
- Nazareth and “the kids”
- Cheap Trick encounters
- Band management
- Aerosmith’s Done With Mirrors
- Martin Popoff
- Sean Kelly
- Gene & Paul
- King Kong
When it comes to Cheap Trick, Robert gets raw and tells it from the heart. You’ll have to see for yourself but we appreciate Robert’s candor and willingness to relive some emotional moments in his rock and roll life.
Thank you Deke for introducing me to Robert, and thank you Robert for being patient and generous with your time tonight!

When guys like Andy Curran sing his praises, you know he’s seriously good at what he does. He has also won the admiration of Rush, Marillion, and many more. What’s it feel like performing a Rush song in front of Rush? Let’s find out from Jacob himself!
