    - By Arend, Feb 5, 2013 12:00 AM

    In the interview below Steve discusses his darkest days that included divorce, death of a loved one, a dying friend and Internet bullying. He talks openly about what happened four years ago that made him take stock of his life and change. These changes are reflected in the music on Transition. Gone are the guitar heroics, replaced by subtleties, melodies and musical nuances. The result is an album of songs written by Steve that both share his innate tastefully, heartfelt playing along with nods to his influences, which he proudly wears on his sleeve.

    Lee Sklar is probably the most prolific bass player of our time. He has played on well over 2,000 albums. The instantly recognizable session cat and live player is most famous for his four decade plus stint with James Taylor and long run with Phil Collins. He did a Tour and DVD with Toto and has been a life long friend of Steve Lukather. If you have ever listened to the radio, watched TV or seen a movie you have most certainly been touched by Lee or "Sklar" as his friends and band mates call him. He was gracious enough to spend some time talking to me about his amazing career and relationship with Luke.

    - By Arend, Oct 28, 2012 12:00 AM

    Don Felder was a huge part of The Eagles amazing success story. He recently released his first solo album in three decades. He has been running wild doing interviews, live shows and appearances promoting his fantastic release "Road to Forever". In Los Angeles I saw him at the Grammy Museum in a question and answer session hosted by Scott Goldman and short live Felder only performance. I also saw him up close with a full band at the Troubadour, also in Los Angeles. Both performances were great. Since Steve Lukather and Toto cats David Paich and Steve Porcaro played on the new release I figured it would be a good reason to interview Don. Don was able to squeeze me into his tight schedule as he just finished an interview, then did his interview with me with me and was doing the Nationally syndicated radio show "Rockline" later that night.

    As soon as I pulled into the Verizon Amphitheatre in Irvine, Ca. for the Jack FM 7th Birthday Party Show I knew it was going to be a great day. It was scorching hot as soon as I got out of my car. But the first sound I heard was the Toto song "99" emanating from the speakers of a "party tent' directly adjacent to me. Next up was "Africa" so those Toto fans were gearing up for the days festivities. The lineup for this years show was Dale Bozzio's Missing Persons, Gin Blossoms, MC Hammer, Toto, Pat Benatar/Neil Giraldo and Joe Walsh.
