The Dennis Wilson Podcast Episode 2

Posted by Podmaster On May - 30 - 2008ADD COMMENTS

Dennis Wilson, himself, begins our second episode by detailing his unique songwriting process behind the songs for Pacific Ocean Blue.   His keyboard playing was not as technically skilled as a session pro would be, but Dennis had an uncanny ability to use a piano or synth to recreate the sounds or emotions he felt while playing.  As Dennis says, it’s the  “experience of experiencing an artistic moment.”

Carole Bloom, Jim Guercio and Gregg Jakobson follow up their comments from the first piece with memories of how Dennis’ confidence to write and perform his own music developed over time.  It’s easy to hear how much Dennis was influenced by his brother, Brian, to use a studio to creatively weave and layer these sounds around each other for his record.

DENNIS WILSON – PACIFIC OCEAN BLUE PODCAST SERIES

We are now happy to launch this three-part podcast series celebrating the 2-CD Legacy Edition of DENNIS WILSON – PACIFIC OCEAN BLUE in stores from Caribou/Epic/Legacy on June 17. This 1977 album was the first solo release by any of the Wilson brothers and is widely regarded as one of the great lost gems of the late 1970s. The life and music of Dennis Wilson is a a rarely-told, though absolutely essential chapter in the history of the Beach Boys and the Wilson family.

Wilson’s close friends, family and collaborators – including Brian Wilson – discuss how his musical passions both reflected and contradicted his hard, fast lifestyle. We also hear from Dennis, himself, in excerpts of a 1977 radio interview.

The show is hosted by another great drummer named Dennis…Dennis Diken of the Smithereens, who has also authored liner notes for many of the recent Beach Boys CD reissues.

Willie Nelson’s True Outlaw Stories 4

Posted by Podmaster On April - 30 - 2008ADD COMMENTS

WISH WILLIE A HAPPY 75th BIRTHDAY! (part 2) **

Today’s True Outlaw Stories come from Willie’s longtime drummer Paul English.

For many years, he was the guy who collected money from the shady club managers after shows. As you might expect, it’s not the easist job in the world, but Paul always knew creative ways to get what was due them. Expect to hear about forklifts, phone booths and briefcases full of cash.

** Legend has it Willie’s actual physical birthday is 4/29/33, even though his birth certificate and drivers license says 4/30/33. That gives us two days to celebrate one of our country’s great music legends.
