Dean Delray's LET THERE BE TALK

Today we have the great blues guitarist Eric Gales talking all about his new album produced by Joe Bonamassa and Josh Smith called Crown which is out right now on all the streaming platforms.

Eric signed a record deal back when he was 15 years old and found fame over night but with that fame came trouble with drugs and for the next 30 years he was completely out of the game.

5 years ago Eric got clean and it has been a comeback story that will inspire even the most jaded.

Catch Eric on tour all of 2022 with Allman Betts Band.

Today we have the fantastic, Singer Songwriter Mike Reno of Loverboy on the show.

This band dropped their debut record in 1980 and immediately dominated FM Radio with massive hits like The Kid Is Hot Tonight and Turn Me Lose. Then in 1981 they drop another massive record Get Lucky and become complete superstars touring with massive bands like Journey and ZZ Top and it did not stop for them for years.

Mike and I dive into the history of the band from opening for Kiss on the Dynasty tour, Working with Bruce Fairbairn and Bob Rock and of course that epic 1982 Day On The Green in Oakland with Iron Maiden, Scorpions and Foreigner.  

Loverboy still to this day can be heard everywhere including major sporting events, TV series and commercials and all day long on classic rock radio. They currently have a brand new single out called Release and a huge summer tour booked with REO Speedwagon and Styx.

Hope you guys dig this episode. Don't forget subscribe to my Youtube channel and leave a review on iTunes.
