    Elliott Murphy was one of the new Dylans of 1973, along with his friend Bruce Springsteen. But despite being on three major labels, Murphy never broke through in the States. However, Elliott was big in France, so he moved there in 1989 and has been living the life of the independent troubadour ever since, making records and touring to acclaim all over Europe. Listen to the story of how one man was spit out of the machine but found a way to survive by doing it himself.

If you like getting in the weeds about music nerd stuff

It begs the question - why aren’t you listening to Bob?

Ian Anderson interview

The best Ian Anderson interview ever

Kudos, Bob.

The Dave Schools interview is award worthy.

The pacing, subject matter, and the loquacious, not uptight sounding Dave Schools are enough to warrant 2 listens.

Anyone who has spent time with a band on the road or in the studio will find gems in this discussion.

For that matter, anyone who has traveled together through life with friends and family will find the eloquence and candor refreshing.

Kudos, Bob

Eat it, Gene Simmons
