MuchMusic’s Michael Williams asked Angus Young about his famous “school suit”. Circa Blow Up Your Video. Much split up the interview into several pieces. When I find them all, I’ll upload them. For now, enjoy Part I.
I’ll let the video do the talking. It’s a big one: Iron Maiden’s Dave Murray and Janick Gers went live with Teresa Roncon to divulge the details of the new album, Fear of the Dark. Live calls are answered, new artwork is discussed, and Bruce’s new son is named!
JD Roberts of MuchMusic’s Pepsi Power Hour talked to Geoff Tate (and a silent Chris DeGarmo) about Queensryche in 1986. That means you get the rock-solid Rage for Order haircuts. Not only that… but Geoff actually comments on the hair!
What a brilliant band, Cry of Love were! Audley Freed is a hella talented guitar player; don’t forget that he did a stint with the Black Crowes. The band visited MuchMusic in 1994 to play live and acoustically. Erica Ehm interviewed the guys on the Saturday Start Me Up program.
Check out this amazing version of “Carnival” from their first and best album Brother.
Join King’s X in the MuchMusic studios with Power 30 host Teresa Roncon! All three members – Doug Pinnick, Ty Tabor, and Jerry Gaskill – sat for this live interview on the Dogman tour.
Lots of interesting subject matter is discussed. Doug Pinnick had 4000 CDs in his collection in 1994 — I have just managed to catch up with him! Hear about influences, religion, and their hardcore following.
I’ve been teasing this one for a few weeks. It’s rare to get interviews with anyone from the original lineup of Bon Jovi other than Jon and Richie. It’s even rarer to get a full band interview.
Michael Williams hosted all five members on MuchMusic’s Start Me Up program, before the release of Keep the Faith in 1992.
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you:
Jon Bon Jovi,
and Alec John Such.
Michael Williams hosted the Pepsi Power Hour this time and got to interview Lenny Wolf and James Kottak of Kingdom Come. He asks them about working with Bob Rock, their upcoming tour, the Zeppelin comparisons and all the stuff you want to know about. Lenny also brings up Stone Fury. Includes “The Making of the Making of” the video for “Do You Like It”.
Check out Lenny and James with Michael Williams on MuchMusic.
You can tell they’re on a tour bus, because you can hear the rumble of the road.
David talks about perspective, and also takes a rare shot at the “ever popular, ever famous” Deep Purples….
I like to tell this story a lot; you may have heard it before. When Whitesnake played Toronto on the 1987 tour, my buddy Rob Vuckovich held up a sign that said “PLAY PURPLE”. David reportedly acknowledged the sign by saying, “We’ll be playing none of that!”
Check out David on the bus in 1987.
Already seen The Dirt? Watch this then.
Back in 1990, before Motley Crue released their own Decade of Decadence video, MuchMusic made one themselves. And it’s pretty good. They were already gearing up for the ill-fated Motley ’94 album. “No ballads,” says Nikki Sixx. It was a good time to be a Crue-head.
Youtube would not allow the music videos that were a part of this documentary. They have been edited out.
Tony “Wild T” Springer was hot in 1993! He was sailing high with his second album Givin’ Blood, not to mention a gig playing with David Bowie on Black Tie White Noise. He also scored a gig as the opening act for Bon Jovi on the Keep the Faith tour. MuchMusic’s Erica Ehm asked ‘T’ about the Bon Jovi slot, and the rock scene in Trinidad where Tony was born.
Check out Tony Springer, Danny Bilan, and Nazeem Lakay — Wild ‘T’ and the Spirit.
