It's not often you get to chat with the voice behind some of rock's most classic songs. I recently had the pleasure of conducting a phone interview with none other than original Foreigner vocalist Lou Gramm. The reason is Lou's upcoming show in Perth-Andover...details for the show here...

Okay, forgive the cheesy pun. If you breathe air and live on planet Earth, then I probably don't need to tell you about Queen. "Bohemian Rhapsody," "Another One Bites the Dust," "Crazy Little Thing Called Love," "Radio Ga Ga," "Under Pressure," "Somebody to Love," the immortal duo of "We Will Rock You" and "We Are the Champions," to name just a few. The music created by John Deacon, Roger Taylor, Brian May, and the late great Freddie Mercury has stood the test of time like very few other classic rock bands. And one of Queen's founding members, drummer Taylor, has seen to it that the music will carry on.

First of all, Happy New Year to all our listeners!! 2013 marks my 4th year hosting the Saturday Night Solid Gold Show, and it's pleasure to bring the classics to you. For the first Solid Gold Show of 2013, I'll be featuring "New at 9" music from a Canadian rock icon. In an era where many veteran rock bands take years upon years between releasing albums (I'm talking to YOU, Aerosmith!) or don't even bother with new material and just keep touring the same catalog songs into infinity, Neil Young continues to be one of rock's most prolific musicians. Neil's most recent project is the album "Psychedelic Pill," which finds him once again teaming up with his old mates in Crazy Horse. Here's the title song.
