Anybody Watch Axs TV? - 10/17/19 07:39 PM

It's one of hundreds of stations on cable TV, but it has some cool shows on it.

Dan Rathers "The Big Interview" is fantastic, he's had alot of great artists interviewing on there. Little Steven, David Byrne, Alabama, Gene Simmons, America, Little Big Town, Jack White, Cheap Trick, just so many. I find even if I never liked the artists music that much, I enjoy the interviews, Dan Rather is great at it

Also Paul Shafer has a show, hes had Joe Walsh, Donald Fagen, Billy Gibbons on so far.

Even Brian Johnson of ACDC has a show hes interviewed Sting, Roger Daltry, Robert Plant...

They got some good programming, Ronnie Wood had a show I dont know if its still on.

Sounds like something I'd like, for sure. Need to look into that.

You'd probably like some of Marc Maron's hour+ WTF podcasts..just for the ear, of course..Most of the recent ones are available through various web sources as well as his website. He talked to Springsteen not to long ago, as well as T Bone Burnette, McCartney, Richards, David Lee Roth, Perry Farell, Joan Jett, Joe Walsh, Mayall..you have to sort through a lot of talks with writers, actors, directors and especially comedians, though 90% (or so) of it's great stuff..skip into around 10-15 minutes into the podcasts to avoid dated monologue kinda stuff..

Dan Rather is a great interviewer, here are just a sampling of some of his interviews.

Everybody has been on this show, from Buddy Guy, to Dolly, to Brian Johnson, to Travis Tritt, Cyndi Lauper, Alice Cooper, seemingly everybody...not Bruce though

Little Steven a bit fatter, but cool as ever.

Billy Joel was on Brian Johnson's "A Life On The Road" last night and had a classic line.

He said You're on stage and playing for 20 thousand screaming fans, You're Mussolini, then you come off the stage and into the car, and then you're just another schmuck stuck in traffic!

Great line.
