Mitch joins the WESTWOOD ONE family! He welcomes former UFO/Scorpions’ guitarist Michael Schenker who talks about his upcoming new album Resurrection, his upcoming tour with singers Doogie White, Graham Bonnet, Gary Barden & Robin McAuley, possibly reuniting with Klaus Meine, working with Metallica’s Kirk Hammett and more.
Our second interview is with ’80s mega-group, Simple Minds. Singer Jim Kerr talks about the band’s latest album Walk Between Worlds, their ‘black swan’ hit single Don’t You (ForgeAbout Me), making new music, his solo album Lostboy! AKA Jim Kerr and much more.
We also talk everything CHEAP TRICK with author Robert Lawson who’s new book Still Competition: The Listener’s Guide To Cheap Trick details every song and every album the band has release. It’s a fantastic read and a great listen.
Also, Mitch comments on the recent return of ‘lost’ KISS guitarist Vinnie Vincent.
