Rank #1: Liam Gallagher Has A Lot To Be Happy About

Podcast cover
Read more
One of my favorite viral videos in recent memory involved Liam Gallagher, former front man of Oasis, answering questions from a group of kids. It showcased his supremely talented wit, and a bit of his heart too. You can hear that joy in Gallagher's voice today, as he's got a lot to be happy about. 'Why Me? Why Not.' is the name of his second solo album, released in September, and he's also the subject of a new documentary called "Liam Gallagher: As It Was". The film chronicles the break-up of Oasis, the band that made him famous. The group was well-known, not only for songs like "Live Forever," "Wonderwall" and "Don't Look Back in Anger," but also because of the notoriously tense relationship between Liam and his brother Noel, who wrote the band's songs. This year marks the 25th anniversary of Oasis' debut album, 'Definitely Maybe'. We'll talk about all of that, plus why he admires his mother so much and how different it is to be a young rock star today than it was in the '90s.

Rank #2: Robbie Robertson On His Creative And Symbiotic Relationship With Martin Scorsese

Podcast cover
Read more
Robbie Robertson is a very busy guy. This year alone, he released a new album, 'Sinematic', re-released The Band's self-titled sophomore album (celebrating its 50th anniversary) and worked with pal Martin Scorsese on two different projects. He scored "The Irishman", starring guys like Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Al Pacino and helped with the documentary "Once Were Brothers: Robbie Robertson and The Band", which talks about his group's seminal work and the band members' relationships with one another. In other words, there's a lot to talk about, including getting booed every night backing Bob Dylan's first electric tour. We also chat about making music at Big Pink, Neil Diamond showing up for 'The Last Waltz' and oh-so-much more.
