A true music legend is on Talkin’ Rock with Meltdown today. Desmond Child has written hit songs with/for some of the biggest music acts in history.
We discuss how he melds pop and rock together with such success. He tells me how he wrote the mega-hit “You Give Love A Bad Name”. He talks about working with Aerosmith and bringing their career back from the dead, and a funny story about “Dude Looks Like A Lady”. I had to ask him about writing the song “I Was Made For Loving You” from KISS and he told me how one of the guys wasn’t a fan of the song. He gives me his thoughts on the music scene today, how Detroit has played into his musical past and the key to his success.
Al Beck gives us the Rock News. We talk about Dave Mustaine’s health and some gear he’s selling, Ozzy’s future plans, a piece of rock memorabilia that sold for over $300,000, a band reuniting and fire in Tool’s production studio.
Chase Engel wraps up today’s episode to tell me about his band The Night Shift. This band is pretty interesting. They’re almost bringing back a part of rock that seems to have been lost. He tells me about the Michigan bands that helped form the music they play, and the show they they put out. Check out their website below and give them a look.
