Brooks Brothers Is Having a Massive Memorial Day Sale

If you want to look your best, look no further than Brooks Brothers. This is the legendary brand that invented the button-down collar, way back in 1986. The quality is undeniable, and the pristine styling is always spot-on. While the brand is known more for its impeccable dress clothes, there’s a remarkable amount of casual and sportswear to be found. And right now during the Memorial Day Sale, you can get four dress or sport shirts for just $ 199.

Brooks Brothers polo shirts are 40 percent off when you buy three or more. And here’s our favorite part: Clearance items are up to 70 percent off—and you get an additional 25 percent off at checkout. You can do the math on that one, but the sum is huge savings for all of us. We’re talking smart suit jackets, impeccable slacks, and fantastic fall items at ridiculous savings. Even ties and accessories are on sale right now. These sales run through May 28.

More than 60 polo shirts in both long- and short-sleeve styles are on sale, so finding three or more so you can score the 40 percent off deal won’t be a problem. Whether you’re looking for classic pique, supple Supima, or even performance knits, the selection is massive. Stripes, solids, colors—there’s just no end to the polo options.

And the dozens of dress shirts come in all cuts, sizes, colors, and styles to suit any occasion or personal taste. Most Brooks Brothers shirts come in your choice of three cuts: the Regent, a modern trim fit that’s slim through the chest and arms; the Madison, a classic cut with an easy fit through the torso; and the Milano, the slimmest cut with a high armhole to match today’s contemporary styles.

Just Shirts On Sale?

Heavens, no. When it comes to dress pants and trousers, Brooks Brothers pants come in six distinct cuts, from the super-slim and ultra-contemporary Soho cut to dozens of options in the Big & Tall range. And plenty in between. From cords to twills, knits to Merino wool, there is a pair for everybody.

But don’t forget to check out the Clearance section, where everything from full suits to sport coats, outerwear, ties, belts, and accessories are up to 70 percent off. When you take an additional 25 percent off at checkout, we’re talking huge savings on some of the nicest clothing a man can buy.

So head over to Brooks Brothers Memorial Day Sale by midnight on May 28. Four shirts—shirts that normally run around $ 100 each, mind you—will cost less than two hundred bucks. Three or more polos gets you 40 percent off. And don’t forget to check the Clearance section, for amazing deals on off-season items, accessories, ties and more.

Here are some of our favorites from the Brooks Brothers Memorial Day Sale.

Non-Iron Gingham Sport Shirt

Made of 100 percent US-grown Supima cotton, this oxford has been specially treated to resist wrinkles. Brooks Brothers’ signature 6-pleat shirring at the barrel cuffs reinforces dedication to a well-made sport shirt. Available in three cuts and six cool colorways, perfect for summer fun.

GET IT: Pick up the Non-Iron Regent Fit Gingham Sport Shirt ($ 92; 4 for $ 199) at Brooks Brothers

Brooks Brothers

Ground Check Irish Linen Short-Sleeve

This linen short-sleeve is crafted of fine linen from Baird McNutt, resulting in a softer shirt. Finished with a button-down collar and a front chest pocket. Machine washable, it comes only in a Regent cut. Still, for casual summer style and comfort, you can’t go wrong here.

GET IT: Pick up the Ground Check Irish Linen Short-Sleeve Sport Shirt ($ 108; 4 for $ 199) at Brooks Brothers

Brooks Brothers

BB#1 Stripe Seersucker Sport Shirt

Cotton seersucker is an iconic summer fabric; the button-down collar and 6-pleat cuffs make this an iconic Brooks Brothers shirt. Features a center back pleat and front chest pocket. Machine washable, it comes in in two colorways, classic blue or this vintage light green. Available in all three cuts for every body type.

GET IT: Pick up the BB#1 Stripe Seersucker Sport Shirt ($ 80; 4 for $ 199) at Brooks Brothers

Brooks Brothers

Soho Fit Moleskin Stretch Chinos 44% OFF

Offered in the slimmest fit and in three colors—tan, navy and charcoal—these flat-front pants are crafted from cotton moleskin with comfort stretch. The skinny ankle taper means you probably can’t wear them with boots—which makes them ideal for summer.

GET IT: Take an additional 25% off Soho Fit Moleskin Stretch Chinos ($ 83; was $ 148) at Brooks Brothers

Brooks Brothers

Regent Fit Wool and Mohair Check Trousers 55% OFF

Impeccable dress trousers made from an imported wool and mohair blend, woven in Italy. Offered in Regent fit only, they come with a flat front and unfinished hem for tailoring. Also available in Navy. At this price, you can’t afford not to stock up for fall and winter.

Brooks Brothers

Regent Fit Seersucker Sport Coat 70% OFF

It’s hard to find seersucker suits and jackets at this time of year—let alone at these prices. The classic blue stripe is all sold out, but there are plenty of grey-stripe options left. And we really like the bold, fun nature of this red-stripe version.

It’s pure cotton, of course, with three-button tip-over, pick stitching, and a center vent. With plenty of sizes left, in short and regular lengths. 

GET IT: Take an additional 25% off this Regent Fit Seersucker Sport Coat ($ 134; was $ 448!) at Brooks Brothers

Brooks Brothers

Sport Trench Coat 63% OFF

True, we just emerged from trench coat season, but we just can’t ignore this deal. We love this deep electric red colorway and comfortable—and machine-washable!—cotton twill finish. It features a hidden button-front closure, adjustable sleeve cuffs, center back vent, and plenty of pockets. Finished with a tartan lining. 

GET IT: Take an additional 25% off the Sport Trench Coat ($ 149; was $ 398) at Brooks Brothers

Release Date: February 18, 2014


Recorded in September of 1991, originally for Japanese TV, The Allman Brothers Band’s beloved Live At Great Woods showcases the classic American rock band reaching a new generation of audiences. Original band members Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts, Butch Trucks and Jaimoe were joined by new guitarist Warren Haynes, bassist Allen Woody and percussionist Marc Quiñones in one of the most powerful lineups in the group’s history. This set – recorded before a crowd of nearly 20,000 adoring fans at the Great Woods Center for the Performing Arts in Massachusetts – features a top-notch set of fan favorites, with a fiery acoustic mini-set included for good measure. This release of Live At Great Woods fills a crucial gap in The Allman Brothers Band’s videography: after years of demand, fans can experience the original longform video version of this concert (previously only available on VHS and LaserDisc), with no interruption of the main feature. Finally, fans have nothing standing between them and the top-notch performances of this set.

After too many bad decisions in romance, Emma is going on a man-fast. For the next six months, she’s fasting from men. No sex. No dating. No soulful gazes. No fond memories of her first crush. She’s going to spend the time focusing on her career, getting in touch with herself, and helping her two best friends with the launch of their new tea room. No men. And that includes her brother’s best friend, Noah Hart, who has just returned to their hometown. She doesn’t want Noah anyway. He might be even hotter than he was before, but he’s not a nice guy anymore. He’s made a fortune by acting ruthless in business, and the last thing he’s looking for is small-town domestic life. He doesn’t even want to be in town again, but a sick grandmother guilted him into it. Then he has nerve to not even recognize Emma when he sees her again. Maybe it’s been seven years, but a decent guy would remember his best friend’s little sister. Noah is not a decent guy. Anyway, Emma is on a man-fast. And she doesn’t want Noah. At all. Fifteen years ago, three girls were thrown together because their brothers were best friends. Now they're all grown up, and their brothers are grown up too. The Tea for Two series tells their stories.

Immediately after the attacks on September 11, 2001, the United States government initiated a secret war against Afghanistan, deploying fewer than one hundred Special Forces troops to fight back. Building a coalition with the rebels of the Northern Alliance, the US troops faced off against the Taliban and the terrorist organization al-Qaeda. They succeeded in driving both out of power by the end of 2001 with minimal casualties and without conventional, large-scale military operations. Despite this victory, the U.S. and its allies soon became mired in a seemingly never-ending war. This untold story features unprecedented access to the Green Berets who played pivotal roles in these covert missions. Reflecting on their experiences and on the brothers-in-arms they lost, these elite soldiers offer a riveting celebration of valor and a sobering, cautionary tale. LEGION OF BROTHERS is produced by CNN films and directed by Greg Barker (“Manhunt”).

"Katy Regnery is a fresh new voice. I eagerly await every Katy book and I tell everyone I know to read them!" –Carly Phillips, NY Times Bestselling Author  Note: Marrying Mr. English is a STANDALONE PREQUEL to the English Brothers series and can be read before or after the other six books.  Trust fund playboy, Tom English, was supposed to find a "good woman" and marry her by midnight on his 32nd birthday. If he didn't, his grandfather promised to disinherit him. Unfortunately for Tom, three days before he was set to get married in Vail, his fiance elopes with her skiing instructor leaving Tom high and dry. With only a week before his birthday, it looks like Tom will forfeit his millions.  When Eleanora Watters, a smart, sassy – totally broke – waitress, spies down-on-his-luck Tom English in the breakfast-all-day diner where she works, she doesn't think much of him. He's at least ten years older than she is and he looks like another trust fund jerk with a silver spoon shoved up his…a-hem. But Tom surprises her. Set up on a blind date by Eleanora's cousin, the two bond over books, and after spending just a few hours together, Eleanora offers to marry Tom in order to help him secure his fortune.  After a whirlwind marriage in Las Vegas, Tom and Eleanora begin to realize that they're not as unlikely a match as they once seemed, and their feelings for each other deepen. But when Tom's grandfather sees through their scheme and threatens to cut them off, Tom will have to decide if he wants the money more than the Colorado waitress who seems to be something between "a dream and a miracle."  This full-length, standalone prequel can be read before OR after the six English Brothers novels!  _________  *All books in The Blueberry Lane Series can be enjoyed as standalone novels.* THE BLUEBERRY LANE SERIES : THE ENGLISH BROTHERS (Blueberry Lane Books #1-6 & 11) Breaking Up with Barrett Falling for Fitz Anyone but Alex Seduced by Stratton Wild about Weston Kiss Me Kate Marrying Mr. English THE WINSLOW BROTHERS (Blueberry Lane Books #7-10) Bidding on Brooks Proposing to Preston Crazy about Cameron Campaigning for Christopher THE ROUSSEAUS (Blueberry Lane Books #12-14) Jonquils for Jax Marry Me Mad J.C. and the Bijoux Jolis THE STORY SISTERS (Blueberry Lane Books #15-16) The Bohemian and the Businessman The Director and Don Juan

A year later, she is forced to reunite with him at a party where one unexpected sizzling kiss tells her she’s far from over him. No way will she allow herself to get sucked back into that torment. She’ll resist him even if that means using the one thing that’ll stop Alex dead in his tracks: another man. Alex is coming off one of the worst years of his life. He spent so much time wallowing in self-pity, he never realized how much he’d missed Valerie. That is, until that kiss. Now, he’s determined to get her back one way or another, and no other man will stand in his way. Especially after discovering that Valerie may be in danger, a danger he blames himself for.

The only bright spot is probably his boss, Lupe (Eleanore Pienta). Will Larry keep it together long enough to win the girl, provide for his French bulldog (Schwartzman’s real-life dog Arrow), laze about with his friend Major (TV on the Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe), and do his cantankerous grandmother (Olympia Dukakis) proud?

Recorded in September of 1991, originally for Japanese TV, The Allman Brothers Band’s beloved Live At Great Woods showcases the classic American rock band reaching a new generation of audiences. Original band members Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts, Butch Trucks and Jaimoe were joined by new guitarist Warren Haynes, bassist Allen Woody and percussionist Marc Quiñones in one of the most powerful lineups in the group’s history. This set – recorded before a crowd of nearly 20,000 adoring fans at the Great Woods Center for the Performing Arts in Massachusetts – features a top-notch set of fan favorites, with a fiery acoustic mini-set included for good measure. This release of Live At Great Woods fills a crucial gap in The Allman Brothers Band’s videography: after years of demand, fans can experience the original longform video version of this concert (previously only available on VHS and LaserDisc), with no interruption of the main feature. Finally, fans have nothing standing between them and the top-notch performances of this set.

South Africa’s Bala Brothers set sights on U.S. music market

By Alicia Powell NEW YORK (Reuters) – With their mix of gospel and R&B songs, the classically trained Bala Brothers are stars at home in South Africa but Loyiso, Zwai and Phelo have set their sights on a new international audience and are planning a tour in the United States. Growing up in Kwa-Nobuhle township outside Port Elizabeth, the brothers have been known at home since the eldest, Zwai, broke the color barrier of South Africa’s famed Drakensberg Boys Choir by becoming its first black member in 1988. In February, U.S. broadcaster PBS aired a special concert featuring the trio, which the brothers, who sing in English and the Xhosa language, say exposed them to a new audience. “We really hope that it will take us beyond (where) any other South African or African actor ever stepped.

Professor’s Theory About What Led The SAE Fraternity Brothers To Sing Racist Chant (VIDEO)

In a 9-second video that quickly went viral, students from the University of Oklahoma’s Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity chapter were seen on a bus clapping, pumping their fists and laughing as they sang a racist chant. The video sparked outrage, and the university expelled two students and shut down the fraternity chapter.

“My guess is that these young men — they’re probably not bad kids — but I bet they grew up in a white bubble. Their church is all white, their social networks are all white. They’ve probably never had someone of color in their living room to break bread,” says Dr. Charles Gallagher, a La Salle University professor and researcher in the field of racial and social inequality. In the video above, he tells Dr. Phil that he’s not surprised by the college students’ behavior. “When you get around same race groups of friends, things like this become OK.”

This episode of Dr. Phil airs Tuesday. Watch more here, including the story of a woman who says her father is an Imperial Wizard of the White Knights of the KKK and refuses to accept her biracial child.

Christian Combs Says Him & His Brothers Are The Real Empire?

Cryptic or Nah? Remember there recently was a rumor going around that Diddy was allegedly suing Empire because it somehow was based on his life. The rumor sparked a lot of interesting questions like did Puffy kill BIG, was Bad Boy funded by drug money, and which one of Diddy’s sons would be gay. Just a lot of laughs really. Well recently Christian Combs, Diddy’s youngest son, took to his Instagram to post a picture of him and his brothers with the caption “Empire”. This brought out some funny comments such as “So Quincy is crazy, Justin is gay, and you the rapper.” At least these guys are living the real “Empire” Life though. What are your thoughts?

Twin Brothers At Odds After One Slims Down (VIDEO)

Charles, who weighs 605 pounds, says he’s desperate to lose weight — but that the person who should be helping him most, his twin brother, Adam, is weighing him down. “In the last year or so, Adam has started to lose weight, and he’s really becoming an arrogant *,” says Charles. “Since he’s lost the weight, he’s started taking more jabs at me about my weight, like ‘Hey, fast ass, can you get up on your own?’ He’s become one of those kids who made fun of us growing up.”

Top Reasons Most Diets Don’t Work

Adam, who’s down to 449 pounds, says, “I’m pissed off my brother doesn’t do anything about his weight … He doesn’t work out. He doesn’t try to eat right. It’s like he’s just given up. He just sits around and constantly overeats.” Adam is concerned about his brother’s health and blames him for being selfish when his wife and son need him. He laments, “He’s just lazy. He needs to get up off his ass before he dies.”

Chats with Peter Frampton, Chicago’s Robert Lamm, The Doobie Brothers’ Tom Johnston and The Legendary Buzz Cason

2014-06-18-PeterFramptonJune23.jpg

A Conversation with Peter Frampton

Mike Ragogna: Peter, the last time we spoke you mentioned doing the ballet and having the score to that. Now we suddenly see Hummingbird In A Box come out. What have the adventures been in regards to leading up to the ballet, and this particular project?

Peter Frampton: It all started a few years ago when the Cincinnati Ballet asked if they could do choreography to four of my songs; three instrumentals from Fingerprints and then “Not Forgotten” from the Now album. I said yes, but then I got incredibly busy, was out of town, and never got a chance to see it. They sent me a DVD, so I finally did get to see it, and I was blown away with the choreography and dancing. Then Victoria Morgan and I got together at the headquarters to watch a rehearsal for a new performance they were going to be doing–I think it was Carmen at the time–and she asked if I would perform live on stage with my band, saying, “We’ve done this once before; we had a band onstage and we choreographed to their live music.” I said, “Yes, I’d love to do that.” There are three segments in the ballet, about 20-to-25-minutes each. I asked her, “So I let you know what music I do live and you choose the choreography?” She said yes, and I ended up writing the music for the middle 28 minutes, seven different pieces. They were floored that I would want to do that, but I did it. We performed with them in April of last year; three shows in Cincinnati at the Aronoff Center. We were on stage, Adam Hoagland was the choreographer, and the whole thing was just phenomenal. Then I went on tour with the Guitar Circus, and after finishing, they used the music for the Cincinnati Ballet at The Joyce Theater, a performance last week in New York. So when I got off the tour, I went into the studio and finished the tracks that we’d played live, and we heard the finished music playing live in Manhattan. Gordon Kennedy–who wrote the music with me–and I went up there and saw the first night, which was phenomenal. So that’s the genesis of the music, and of course the by-product of that is that the album’s going to be available on June 24th.

MR: Are you going to be distributed through Universal due to your long-term association?

PF: No, we’re doing this one through RED Distribution.

MR: There’s a fair amount of instrumental playing on this album. How did it feel playing this one back?

PF: Actually, there’s only one complete instrumental on this, which is called “The One in 901.” All the others might have long instrumental sections, but they all have vocals at some point. Basically, it flows; Adam Hoagland, the choreographer, said to me, “Give me a beginning, a middle and an end.” That wasn’t a lot of help, so Gordon and I just wrote what we felt would be good, for us and the dance. But listening to the whole thing all the way through, I’m very happy with it.

MR: Did you do any visualization as you were creating this?

PF: Not really. There were certain licks and riffs I chose specifically for movement. “Hummingbird In A Box” is probably the opening figure to that. I just visualized dance; I could see it happening, so it was great to visualize it for real when we played with them.

MR: Were you careful with the lyrics when you were coming up with them for this?

PF: Yeah, we were just telling the story of what we felt. Lyrics are lyrics, it’s a story, and the choreography was definitely tailored to the lyrics as well.

MR: Because of your association and connection that you’ve had now with ballet, is this the first time your mind’s been opened and broadened to ballet?

PF: I’ve always admired ballet; I definitely have a new love for it now, because I’m privy to what goes into it. Everyone loves a good dance–you’ve got the shows on TV everyone watches, like “So You Think You Can Dance”–and there are some incredible dancers in this country, in the various ballets. I just saw the Nashville Ballet last night. So yes, I am going to more ballets! I do appreciate the talent and the movement and what they can do with their bodies. I can barely run now [laughs], and I don’t want to crouch down anymore, or I might not be able to get up! They have these bodies that they’ve tuned to perfection, and it’s pretty amazing what they can do. I love it. I’m going to go to more ballets now around the country and hopefully around the world.

MR: Does this open your mind up to wanting to do other mediums beyond ballet?

PF: Yeah. I love anything different, you know. I’ve always wanted to do film music, so that’s always in the cards. If someone ever asks me to do that, I’d love to do that. I’m not talking about just writing a song, I’m talking about scoring. That’s definitely something I’ve always wanted to do. And the instrumental record I should do next… I just gotta be doing all different stuff. And I know the Nashville Ballet wants to take me out to dinner, so maybe there’ll be something else for dance as well. What I would like to do is to eventually write enough work that’s specifically to be performed with an orchestra. I’m not talking about just scoring some string for “Baby I Love Your Way.” I’ve done that, it’s okay, but it wasn’t written with strings in mind. It’s good, but I’m talking about, from scratch, coming up with an idea, talking to someone at the symphony here in town and maybe saying, “Look, I want to write this, can you help me score it for an orchestra?” I’m friends with Ben Folds, and he just did his piano concerto here in two different sets of performances; one was just with a symphony, and then he told me he was doing it again with the ballet in Nashville. He did all the orchestrating; he’s brilliant and classically trained. It was phenomenal and hysterical. He put a lot of humor into the music and it was very modern. The dance was tremendous. So that made me think, “Now I want to do it differently next time.” I want to push myself, do something I’ve never done before.

MR: You also mentioned that you’re working on another instrumental project after this?

PF: I’ve already recorded a couple of tracks. I’ve got little folders of different tracks. Now that I’ve got my own studio down here in Nashville, the world is my oyster.

MR: You’ve also got some of the world’s best players there, in case you want to hobnob.

PF: Well, I’ve done that. The very first session, I didn’t know if the studio worked yet, and I’d just invite people, saying, “Look, I don’t even know if this will work, but come by and have a jam.” I brought all my friends from in town and we had a blast. We did a blues number. In fact it was a Buddy Guy number. We had a fantastic time and it sounded great, and it was like a “Studio warming.” The beauty is that you can call someone up on a Monday and they’re probably free one day that week and you’re going to get a session in and get a couple of tracks done.

MR: Peter, what advice do you have for new artists?

PF: If you’re unique, people are interested in you. But it’s very difficult sometimes when those music business people who could bring you to the masses are looking for something that just happened. Unfortunately, if you sound like somebody else, you might have one hit or something, but if you’re not unique and don’t have your own style… Make friends, don’t follow them. That’s the way to be a successful artist, I think. Maybe in today’s market, that’s the wrong thing to say, but for me, I say be unique as possible and don’t kowtow to people who say, “Well, we need you to do this.” No. You should do what you want to do, and that’s how things become trends.

A Conversation with Chicago’s Robert Lamm

Mike Ragogna: Robert, I’m honored to speak with. You let’s get caught up with Chicago. You have a lot of irons in the fire right now, including a tour. I’m sure you’re looking forward to that, huh?

Robert Lamm: Oh we are, but it’s one of those things where we’re always on tour so it’s just a question of what exactly we’re going to do while we’re on tour. We started this year going clear across Canada, our second Canadian national tour in the last few years. Of course, we went across during the month of January and February, which was an experience this year, especially with all the zero temperatures. But going from there, going to a couple of concerts with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra interspersed with our first appearance on the Grammys and heading of to Europe next week for roughly three weeks and then coming back to do the REO/Chicago tour.

MR: So how long has Chicago been around now?

RL: I would say about a hundred and thirty six in rock years.

MR: [laughs] What does Chicago mean to you these days?

RL: For me, besides the extended family aspect which it has become–and I’ve said this to people who were really involved with Chicago early on–I think that without Chicago there would be no Robert Lamm. I always wanted to be a composer, so I was able to develop as a composer, I learned how to arrange by arranging for Chicago, I’ve learned how to be a better songwriter, be a better composer, be a better musician. For decades now I’ve been surrounded with really wonderful musicians who continue to be curious about music and that’s really what it takes. Again, I think that it’s provided a growing experience for me as a person and as a musician.

MR: Why do you think Chicago continues to be popular and remains part of the culture?

RL: I make a joke about this from night to night about, “What is the reason for Chicago’s longevity and appeal?” I joke that it’s our dancing, but really I do think that even from the beginning, even from the context of the psychadelic sixties going into the seventies where rock groups were allowed to experiment and record those experiments and in those days FM radio provided access to those experiments, where today that’s not so much the case, I think that what we contributed is this enigmatic approach to songwriting. I contend that a lot of our tracks are not really songs, they’re compositions because we’ve always had to make room for the brass sections and percussion and vocals and lyrics, they’re sort of longer things than a three minute song, which I have no problem with. When you can write an elegant song in less than three minutes, like a James Brown tune, forget it, there’s nothing more perfect than that, but I think what Chicago contributes is an approach that other people dug and said, “Okay, we can do that too.”

MR: I agree with you. I remember Chicago’s beginnings were so unique, you were doing double albums right off the bat. I can’t think of any other act that was afforded that kind of support by a label as far as their creativity. Right out of the chute you guys were doing double albums, complicated horn arrangements that professors in colleges and kids were getting into together, and it was easy for you. Being a a kid the inspiration was different than being a mature adult. What is your creativity like now versus how you did it then?

RL: Well a lot of people haven’t heard the new album because it’s yet to be released, but when our manager first heard the master mixes he emailed me and said, “Why are these songs so long? You’re never going to get them on radio.” I said, “Peter, listen, this is really a pure Chicago album.” The atmosphere in the world of music and the music business has completely changed. You’d better be ready to do anything because we’re basically on our own here.” I think that nowadays we are inspired by the technology and we are inspired by the wild west of the music business right now. We can do anything. We basically self-produced and recorded this on the road. You may have done that article about the rig, what we laughably call “our portable recording studio,” even though it takes several people to move it around. All that is inspiring in the context of this large arc of our career where we’ve gone through so much stuff. Of course as a songwriter the globalness that we’re all living with now is a very different atmosphere than the seventies, let’s say, when we were dealing with voting rights, racial issues–still–we were dealing with the war in Vietnam, we were dealing with student protests, it’s a very different situation now. There are global issues that we now have to look at and a lot of that finds its way into our new music.

MR: Wow, beautiful. You didn’t lose the fire.

RL: Well we are all bombarded by the twenty four hour news cycle. I think if you’re reading newspapers or watching television or online at all there’s a lot of information coming in. It’s amazing how much information we didn’t used to get. Of course, it’s all really controlled anyway, but we do have access to so much onw. It’s the same with music, you have this incredible access to music in every corner of the world. Every culture in the world that’s making music somehow finds its way onto the web and you can hear things you never dreamed you would ever hear. I find that very inspiring as well.

MR: Any current social issue we should be discussing?

RL: Well, I would say obviously the issue of guns in America…definitely global warming–and this is an issue that appears in one of the Chicago songs that Lee Loughnane wrote, a song called “America.” It was when our party politics had descended to a new low where nothing was getting done and we had lots of pressing problems in this country last year and the two sides of the aisle could not even sit down and talk as adults. They were squabbling like gradeschoolers. Of course, the big thing is that USA always seems to be involved in some sort of conflict and the thing that’s not spoken about is that it’s usually about access to oil. All those things bother me and I don’t want to waste your time by going down my shopping list. All those things are worth thinking about and worth raising in the context of a song when it’s appropriate.

MR: Again, wow, well said. How do you think Chicago music fits into this mess?

RL: Hey listen, when we play our concerts we play two, two and a half hours, maybe thirty or thirty five songs and there’s a lot of, “You’re the inspiration” and “Hard To Say I’m Sorry” and “If You Leave Me Now” and all that kind of stuff because that’s what we all relate to and that’s what we want to hear to kind of shut off the stuff that’s going on in the world around us. I understand it’s necessary to have both things.

MR: Robert, one of the projects that you worked on that I’ve always liked was Like A Brother with Gerry Beckley and Carl Wilson…

RL: Oh, no kidding! What a surprise, thank you.

MR: What’s interesting to me is that for years Chicago and The Beach Boys almost had this cousinship going on. What was that relationship built on?

RL: A lot of it had to do with our longtime producer Jim Guercio who produced a dozen or so Chicago albums and also helped revitalize The Beach Boys. They had kind of lost their way, by the early seventies I would say no one even wanted to think about The Beach Boys. Guercio was convinced that Brian was a genius and if he could get on the right path The Beach Boys could be revitalized. It didn’t quite happen the way that Jimmy was hoping it would happen but Guercio did play a lot of bass on some of those mid seventies records and really was the inspiration for the two bands touring together, which is where we met for the first time. It was a really crazy couple of years, two bands hanging out and as you say a cousinship developed. I had friendships with all of them, I’m still very close friends with Brian and as you may suspect Carl was one of my very closest friends. We had him for as long as we had him but it wasw really an honor to call him my friend.

MR: Beautiful. You were in a choir, too, with Harry Chapin. Do you remember Harry?

RL: Of course I remember Harry. Harry was a little older than me, he was already in college I think when I was in junior high school. All the Chapins were musical, their father Jim is a very famous jazz drummer, but I remember Harry, when he first started hanging around with the younger Chapins and the kids in the choir he was actually playing trumpet at the time. He was good trumpet player. I don’t think anybody knows that. He and Tom began teaching themselves to play acoustic guitar and that was my first exposure to the possibility of small groups of musicians sitting around playing instruments. That was sort of the beginning of the folk immersion into pop culture.

MR: I’ve heard that phrased as “The Folk Scare.”

RL: [laughs] It was a strange time, wasn’t it?

MR: Hey, I want to talk about Phil Ramone. You shifted from Jim to Phil as a producer. Was it just time to move on to another producer?

RL: There was actually a business acrimony going on between Guercio and the band. It was a very good relationship and a long relationship while it lasted, but at some point, we had to walk. While we were with Guercio, Phil had done some remixes, mixed some singles for us. We had done a number of television specials in the mid to late seventies and Phil was always the sound guy on those, so we developed a friendship with him. He was a gregarious, smart, fun guy to hang out with. Just to hear him tell stories about who he recorded and what went on in those sessions was worth the price of admission anyway.

MR: You were on the stage with Robin Thicke at the Grammys, what was it like merging the genres?

RL: First of all, we didn’t know we were going to do the Grammys until a couple weeks before and we had rehearse and do the Grammys around the concerts we did with The Chicago Symphony, so it was really switching gears back and forth across a couple weeks there. Our attitude was that we were a little skeptical going into rehearsals but I Googled the guy, we listened to stuff and I realized he knows his way around a studio, he had had some succes already, I thought the music he was making was worthwhile. He was very professional. He showed up on time, he was prepared, he made some suggestions, he helped us put together that little medley that we played during the Grammys. Once the skepticism was gone–on both sides probably, he probably expected he’d be playing with dinosaurs who needed to sit down to play, I don’t know–after the rehearsals were over he knew we were the real thing, too. I think our attitudes were, “We can do this, this is not a problem, we’ve done this before.” We had a lot of fun.

MR: And in the back of his mind, he had to be thinking, “I’m playing with the world’s greatest horn band.”

RL: He did confide that to me later on.

MR: You talked about The Chicago Symphony earlier, that must have been a very cool event for you guys.

RL: As you know, that is a world-class orchestra. A couple of the players were young teachers of their instrument back in the day when some of the horn guys were studying their instruments at the University level. So there was an awareness of the guys in the band already but we also were aware that that band, The Chicago Symphony Orchestra had won something like three or four dozen Grammys over the years. We just walked into rehearsal and said, “Listen, we are totally intimidated by you guys. Let’s just have some fun.” I have to say, at this point in our career we’ve played with a number of symphonies and The Chicago Symphony was spectacular. They rocked. Mostly the problem with symphonies is tha thtey can’t swing, they can’t rock. That group can do it. It was really terrific fun.

MR: Was that recorded? Will it ever be released?

RL: I’m sure there’s already bootlegs of it around, but no, we couldn’t record it or film it. Riccardo Muti, who is the main director of The Chicago Symphony attended the concert on the second night and was completely blown away. He’s been chasing everybody around trying to get us to come back and do that again and film it and recorded it. I’m sure it will happen sometime in the next year or two.

MR: Speaking of projects that are or were release-challenged, Stone Of Sisyphus remained unreleased for a long time. What is that story?

RL: The story was that sometime in the early nineties, I’m guessing ’93 or ’94, it was time to do another album for Warner Brothers. The producer was Peter Wolf, again a terrific producer and a terrific musician. In pre-production, we talked about the kinds of songs we wanted to do. We wanted to stretch out and harken back to the way that Chicago recorded during its first albums and approach the songs that way. We did, and Peter Wolf was especially leaning on me to provide lyric content that was a little more meaningful than some of the eighties ballads. So we did all that, we put it together, we loved it, but the mistake we made was that we didn’t let the executives at Warner Brothers come to the studio and listen during the process. We didn’t tell them to stay away, but we also didn’t invite them. There was no particular reason why we didn’t, but I later found out that they were offended because those guys like to feel like they had a hand in everything. When we finally delivered the album, they essentially didn’t like it, and they said, “We can’t release it as this, you guys have got to go back in the studio and do some other tracks.” We, at that point, were in love with the album as it was; we loved all the elements of it, we liked the energy of it, we liked the forward-thinkingness of it. We said, “Number one, we don’t have time because now we have to go on the road, and number two, we like this album as it is.” We agreed to disagree, we owned the album, we walked away and that was that. Cut to the following decade when we were essentially on our own and we decided to remix it and see what else was happening and we released it ourselves.

MR: That album was somewhat appropriately titled, huh.

RL: Yeah, really. Who knew?

MR: What advice do you have for new artists?

RL: My opinion is that when your muse leads you to doing music it needs to be something that you would do no matter what. You need to realize that aside from practicing and aside from playing it really is a lifetime exploration. An important component to being a musician that some people don’t understand, aside from practicing and playing, is listening. You need to listen to music, you need to listen also to the other guys in your band when you’re playing music. I think that component gets lost. Nowadays I would say don’t expect to be famous next year, or even two years from now. There are all these altnerate ways that people are accessing music now and alternate ways that people are beginning their careers whether it’s The Voice or American Idol or anything like that. The other day I just happened to be looking at my Shazam app and I decided to click on it and I looked at the top hundred Shazsammed artists or the week or the month and there were some artists on there I had never heard of, I never would’ve ever found them, I never would have found them on the radio, they wouldn’t have been on television but interestingly enough there was some good music on there I really want to explore further. Having said that, you’ve still got to go out and play, you’ve still got to do live gigs and as they say, “you never know how people are going to find your music, but the only way you can be sure they won’t find your music is to quit.” So don’t quit. Keep it going.

MR: Over the years, you’ve been able to donate about a quarter of a million dollars for breast cancer research for the American Cancer Society from performances. How is that going now?

RL: For a number of years now, I’d say at least five years we have run kind of an auction where the highest bidder for any given show comes up on stage and sings with Chicago. The audiences have loved it, we’ve raised a good sum of money for the American Cancer Society, specifically for breast cancer research. It’s something that we find we usually know somebody or are related to somebody who has this disease. The treatment programs have imporved quite a bit as a result of the research but it’s still something that is on the horizon, that needs to be solved. That’s the reason that we got involved with it.

MR: Do you have a favorite Chicago song?

RL: I always like playing “Just You And Me” mainly because of the soprano sax solo, it gives us a chance to stretch out between Lou Pardini and myself on keyboard we have a great time grooving with each other and making that solo into something different every night. So for me that’s always been my favorite song to perform live.

MR: And also with a catalog as huge as you’ve got, how do you even start to choose a set list for a live show or a greatest hits album? It must be very hard.

RL: [laughs] We argue a lot. We do. On the bus, backstage, in airports, you can make a case for almost any of the songs. I’m the radical guy in the band, I always want to play the newest stuff or the stuff that is the most obscure. Then there are the conservative party within Chicago who claim that if it’s not broken, don’t fix it. “The set worked last night” or last year or ten years ago and that’s a reason to play it the same every night. Somehow we find the middle ground…unlike our congress.

A Conversation with Doobie Brothers’ Tom Johnston

Mike Ragogna: Tom, the Doobies have a new album coming with lots of guests and a country vibe.

Tom Johnston: It’s pretty much all based on country. It’s our songs and those people singing them, and it’s been a gas to do.

MR: Where did the idea come from to do this project?

TJ: It came from Sony Nashville. We had a meeting with David Huff who produced it, he brought it to our attention and said, “This would be great thing for you guys to do” and we said, “Sure, why not? Let’s give it a shot.” It turned out to be better than I’d even hoped. Another thing I have to mention, I’ll just mention it quickly, is that playing witht he studio guys we had in there was phenomenal. They were the band. If it was “China Grove” I was playing guitar but I was the only one playing at the time, if it was “Black Water” Pat [Simmons] was the only one playing, or if it was “Take It To The Streets” it was Mike. Basically it’s not like we sitting as a band and playhing, the band was all the guys from Nasvhille. It was unbelievable.

MR: It seems the two phases of The Doobie Brothers are with and without Michael McDonald; that was the group sound. Now Michael McDonald is back on this project, what was the tearful reunion like?

TJ: We don’t see him every day and we’re not on the road with him all the time, but every once in a while, we play a show with Mike. We see him once or twice a year; he has a place in Hawaii, so Pat sees him a lot more than that, actually, because they both live in Maui. It’s a happy reunion, it’s always good to see him.

MR: On recordings as well, I imagine.

TJ: Yeah, he’s got three songs on the album, “Takin’ It To The Streets,” “What A Fool Believes” and “You Belong To Me.”

MR: Beautiful. When you look at the number of hits and influence you guys had, what kind of impact do you think you had?

TJ: I’ve been asked that question before and it always takes me by surprise because I don’t ever think about that. It’s not like I walk around seeing people emblazoned with Doobie Brothers shirts, constanly singing Doobie Brothers songs, so when I found out from doing this album just how much an affect we’ve had on musicians in Nashville, guys that I respect and people that are doing really well in country music and they can’t say enough good things, it just blew me out of the water, I had no idea.

MR: What is it about The Doobie Brothers music that resonates so well?

TJ: I think it’s because The Doobie Brothers is basically all about roots Americana music, and I don’t mean strictly bluegrass or something like that. We come from all areas of American music, we come from roots, we come from rock ‘n’ roll, we come from R&B, americana, bluegrass and there’s some country influence in there aw well. We threw them all together and that’s what the band is. You’ve got the harmonies, you’ve got the finger picking, you’ve got R&B rhythm styles and singing styles hinting at the blues or R&B depending on what the song is, and then you’ve got the two versions of the band as well, you could say, when Mike was the spotlight guy, if you will, and that totally took it to another place. Yet the band still not only stayed relevant but actually became even more popular for a while. You put all that together and you’ve got a large swath of American music to look at.

MR: The songs on this album have really evolved over the years. Are there any evolutions that really took you by pleasant surprise? New configurations you play live now?

TJ: David Huff producced the album and he did some really cool production on some of the songs. There’s a couple of tunes that are very far from what the original songs are like in a very positive way, one in particular. It was our first single and it’s killer. “Nobody” is the name of the song. But all the songs have a thing that David did with them, be a loop thrown in or pedal steel on it, this and that. You have people like Brad Paisley playing on “Rocky Mountain Highway,” nobody plays guitar quite like Brad Paisley. And on “Black Water,” The Zac Brown Band, they put their own stamp on it because they’re all singing on it and the track has got really cool elements that David put in there. “Long Train Running” has Toby Keith. There’s a whole slew of people on here. Chris Young singing “China Grove.” As far as the actual tracks themselves, that would be more of what you’re referencing, the way they were cut is the guy that wrote the song is the only one that’s playing on the track. If it was a song that Pat wrote he’s play on it and if it was a song I wrote I’m playing on it, if it’s a song that Michael wrote he’s playing on it, but the rest of the guys playing aren’t on the band, they’re all studio guys and they’re phenomenal. Unbelievably good. Pedal steel, three guitars going on every song, keyboards… And in Mike’s case, probably two sets. We had bass, of course, and a phenomenal drummer. The tracks were done very rapidly but really, really well because these guys are used to working like that.

MR: You guys are taking it on the road and doing a summer tour that looks pretty extensive with Peter Frampton and Boston for part of it. Is there something about this tour that makes you think, “Hey, this is going to be a different kind of thing?”

TJ: Not really. I don’t mean that in a negative way, but usually you get out and you play with another band and if you have chemistry with them that makes it a lot of fun. We played a lot of tours with Chicago and we always had a great time with those guys. And we’ve played with Peter Frampton before, but I think we’ve only ever played a show with Boston, just once so we don’t really know them that well and we’ll find that out as we’re playing with them. It also has to do with the venues which with those bands will be sheds. We just came back from doing about three weeks in Australia and New Zealand and we did quite a few festivals and that was unbelievable. The one in Byron Bay was jaw-dropping. Hundreds of thousands of people in front of you while you’re playing and the list of people that played on that thing was a mile long and most of them were form the states so we kind of wondered, “If everybody’s down here, who’s playing in the United States?” Every gig has its own personality and every crowd has its own personality and when you’re playing with another group that will affect not only the demographic but the fans of that group as well as the ones that come to see you. And it doesn’t matter, as long as you’re having a great time and as long as you put that out for the people and the people respond then that’s what it’s alla bout.

MR: What advice do you have for new artists?

TJ: Well I’ve been asked that a lot, and the music business has changed so drastically from when we came in–it’s like night and day. Number one: Be as good at your craft, whatever that is, singing, playing or both, as you possibly can, practice as much as you can, but I have to be honest with you, and this sounds cold but it’s the truth: you’d better find somebody that’s connected. Play as many shows live as possible. That’s another hardship because nowadays the venues that used to be available for doing that have strunk, a lot of times you have to pay to play it if you’re just starting out. Radio’s changed, how you buy music has changed, how music is brought to the public as far as streaming and downloading ahs changed. Radio is still the same in as much as you hear it on the air, but radio has changed a lot. My advice is make sure it’s what you really want to do and you’re oging to have to get used to the idea that you’ll really have to work at it unless you know somebody who’s high up in the hierarchy.

MR: What’s next on the horizon?

TJ: That’s a great question. I kind of have a tendency to live in the here and now, I don’t worry about the future too much. Basically it’s all about the gigs you’re going to be doing. Right now the future to me is this album and the fall. We’ll be back in the sheds again and that’s always fun. As far as what’s down the road we’ve got a studio album in the mix right now, cause we’ve just finished doing this and we haven’t gotten into songwriting because we have been touring so much. I’m saying we’ve been doing two hundred seventy dates a year like the old days, we’ve been doing between eighty five and a hundred shows a year at this point, but we all have families and we all have other things we do on the side when we get home, like pay bills and stuff as well as write music. For me that’s my hobby, I love writing music. I like to try and do that in other genres, too if possible. It’s something I’m looking into getting more heavily involved with. But the band I think just takes it as it comes. The idea of taking this album, being as how these aren’t new songs, and playing them live, the thing that makes this album special is having these other artists on it and the different sounds of different artists. When we go out and play live it’s going to be how it always sounded. WE can’t get those people out on the road, it would never work.

MR: Obviously, you guys have a set list for every show. Is there a song on that list that when you see it, you just can’t wait to get to it?

TJ: What makes those songs so special to me after playing them for as long as we have is the crowd reaction. We’ve played them so many times and rearranged them so many times, it’s really all about how the crowd reacts. There’s always something positive about having a crowd get up on their feet and sing along if they know the words to the song. It’s very gratifying, and it doesn’t matter if you’ve played the song before because it’s fresh that night because of those people that are in front of you. I have songs I look forward to that people don’t know. In this case because we’re doing a shorter set because we’re co-headlining with somebody else we’re only doing one song off of World Gone Crazy and that is the song that we’re doing. I love that song, I think it’s a really cool tune and I look forward to playing it every night. We brought up a deep cut, we’re doing “Eyes of Silver” and we completely rearranged it and it’s got a big jam right in the middle of it with Marc Russo playing sax and it’s really funky. That’s a hell of a lot of fun to play. But I enjoy all of them! As long as the crowd’s digging them, I’m digging them.

A Conversation with Buzz Cason

Mike Ragogna: Let’s do a little catching up with Buzz Cason. You have a new album out, Troubadour Heart, and it’s already getting some action. The track “Pretend” was picked up by folk charts and “When I Get To California” went up in the Americana world. This album seems to be getting some attention.

Buzz Cason: Yes, Michael, it’s kind of a multi-genre type album. For instance, the song you mentioned, “Pretend” is sort of a folky kind of song, it’s acoustic, it’s just myself on mandolin, Bryan Grassmeyer on bass and Amanda Contreras does a duet with me on it. It’s a little song I’d had around for a while and I thought, “Hey, let’s just do a little change up on the record.” The rest of the record’s a little more edgy, like “When I Get To California” was recorded with Anthony Crawford in Loxley, Alabama. Anthony plays with Neil Young, he’s played with Steve Winwood, he was part of the Blackhawk group, he’s an accomplished musician and he helped put that record together.

MR: What was the process like recording the album?

BC: I basically produce my own records, I have my own creative workshop studio there in Nashville, it’s been in Berry Hill since 1970, so whenever we feel like we’ve got a good song we go in and record, it makes it very convenient and easy to do a record like that when you have your own place, and I have my own band, the Love Notes which plays on a lot of the cuts. I did three cuts with Anthony in Alabama, then one cut with Jeff Silbar called “Pacific Blue” which wraps the album up, it’s got sixteen vocal tracks on it, kind of a Beach Boys type esoteric-type song that wraps up the album.

MR: You also have Dolly Parton’s “Don’t Drop Out” as a credit.

BC: “Don’t Drop Out” was a song I wrote way back with Bobby Russell, my partner who wrote great songs like “Honey,” “Little Green Apples,” and “Sure Gonna Miss Her” back in the seventies. The great Ray Stevens produced that record, it came out on a box set by Dolly and it gets played on the airlines a lot, I know that, and Pandora maybe.

MR: And of course I need to visit your everlasting hit, “Everlasting Love” that you co-wrote with Mac Gayden.

BC: Yeah, that’s been a great song by us, originally by Robert Knight who appeared with us at the Baby Boomers Legends show in Franklin, Tennessee, on April 29th. The great Robert Knight, his photo was in The Tennessean. He had the original, then Carl Carlton came along in ’74 and then Rachel Sweet and Rex Smith in the eighties and then Gloria Estefan in the nineties and right at the end of the nineties U2 did a great version of it. It’s been a wonderful song for us.

MR: How does it feel to have a song like that? It’s a modern day classic, and you have so many in that category.

BC: Well my great partner Bobby Russell and I, the first song that we got recorded by Jan & Dean was called “Tennessee.” We were just kids, he was out of college, I was out of high school and man, we thought, “Hey, this is easy! We might never have to get a job if it’s this easy!” But we had a great mentor Gary Walker who’s still in business in Nashville, he owns The Great Escape, a great vintage record shop. Gary Walker got in touch with Snuff Garrett and Lou Adler, at Liberty Records. They produced that record and it was a moderate hit and then they recorded another one of ours, “Popsicle” and that was an even bigger hit, so we thought, “We think we can do this!” We started doing that and then when Arthur Alexander recorded “Soldier Of Love,” it was a highlight. Tony Moon and I wrote that for him, which is very unusual, getting to write for a particular artist. Then of course The Beatles heard him doing it in England and they did it on the BBC and the great Marshall Crenshaw did a version of it for us and then Pearl Jam did it and the Derailers did it on their album in 2011. That one has not ever really been a big single hit, but it’s had a lot of lovely recordings.

MR: Buzz, do you still get the fever? Are you still writing and pitching songs to this day?

BC: I don’t pitch as much as I did to other artists, I’ve kind of been wrapped up since about 2011 myself doing my own little Americana records. Occasionally someone will cover a song off of there, but we do some pitching and sometimes some of the catalog songs get cut. For instance, there was a cut by Dion [DiMucci] and Christine Ohlman which was an R&B song Mac Gayden and I wrote a few years back. But I have some younger folks in the office that do some of the pitching there, but I’m kind of more concentrating on my own productions and my own records and a duo called Sugarcane Jane which I’m co-producing with them right now.

MR: You’re still pretty active, there’s no retiring for you!

BC: Yeah, it’s like someone said, “Retire from what?” It doesn’t seem like work, what we do, but it really is. I’ve been very blessed. I’ve got to do what I wanted to do most of my life, so it’s been great.

MR: Do you have a favorite song that you’ve written?

BC: That’s an easy question, the song is on this album. It’s called, “Going Back To Alabama,” and it’s a duet with Dan Penn, the great songwriter, “Do Right Woman,” “Cry Like A Baby,” “The Dark End Of The Street,” he lives part time in Alabama and part time here in Nashville. Dan wrote that about our Alabama memories, my mother grew up there and I spent a lot of time as a kid down there and he grew up down in Vernon, Alabama. So we just sat down one day and reminisced and wrote this song. It recently got a very good review in England and the United Kingdom in the country music magazine over there. It’s very special to me, I just love the feel of it. It was one that we were pretty much totally happy with the recording of. Sometimes you listen back and say, “Oh, I wish we’d added this,” or “I wish we’d done that,” but I really appreciate what happened on that song.

MR: What do you think about country music these days? It can be argued that what you’re doing with Americana is more true to what the country genre could be as opposed to where it is now.

BC: You know, everything evolves, and you have a younger generation, which I think is very healthy for country music, digging the Jason Aldeans and the Luke Bryans and the Taylor Swifts and all of them, I don’t want to deny them because that’s their music. What’s beautiful about Americana is it allows older artists to still make records and kind of get a little feel of what it was like. We always put a little retro in our records, and we also try to punch some new things in there, bright new ground. On my record we’ve got “Private Insanity,” which is almost like a punk song, and “Something I Can Dance To” which is like a Rolling Stones song. In fact, we had Bobby Keys, the sax player for the Stones and an old friend, play on that. We’re pretty much far removed sound-wise from country, but we’re able to utilize some of the knowledge that we gathered coming up in that classic country era, we can utilize some of those shall I say tricks that we put into our Americana records.

MR: Americana embraces many genres. I remember in the eighties when country music started to adopt other sounds and production values, it was dismissed as “Nash Vegas” and all of a sudden, the big hats were whipped out to come to the rescue. It’s almost like country wants to evolve and my feeling is that it wants to get closer to what you’re now doing creatively. Country music seems like the only genre that won’t allow itself to grow or evolve.

BC: Yeah, that’s right. For instance, there’s a song on my album called “The Call,” which ironically, my son Parker Cason plays the lead guitar on, it’s an outstanding lead part that he plays. It’s almost as if someone in country now could cut that and it would be considered a country song, but the way we did it we felt it had an almost U2 feeling or something.

MR: You’ve done so much in your career, like singing background for Elvis Presley and Kenny Rogers in addition to many others.

BC: Right. I did background work for something like twenty years. I sang with the great Don Gant, who produced Jimmy Buffett and Bergan White, who’s a great arranger and was with Bobby Russell and I from the beginning helping with our records and singing on them. I did a lot of background work for the producer Larry Butler, we did the Kenny Rogers records, and Mel McDaniel’s great producer Jerry Kennedy. I just did a lot of jingles and voiceover work and just a variety of stuff in the studio, I loved it. It was great, I was bouncing a lot of balls because I already had my own studio and was always writing and publishing but trying to do sessions, too. I kind of had a full plate.

MR: And your publishing company is still running full force, right?

BC: That’s right.

MR: And you also own Creative Workshop.

BC: That’s the studio we still own, my sons are kind of taking that over. It’s been there from 1970 and everybody from–Elvis’ last track was cut there, “Lay On Down”–plus Leon Russell, The Doobie Brothers, Merle Haggard, Olivia Newton John, all kinds of folks have recorded there, so we’re still active in that.

MR: Do you have any advice for new artist?

BC: Well, I think it’s such a wide-open field with so many multiple genres that you should just be true to yourself and do the music that you feel comfortable with and find people of a like mind with you, the ones with music you’re into and do your thing. It takes a lot of persistence, a lot of stick-to-it-iveness. Try your music out on people and play anywhere you can play to expose your music.

MR: What advice would you have given yourself as a new artist?

BC: Not that this is an ego thing or a selfish thing, but I think I would have been more satisfcied and maybe even had a little more of a career as an artist had I focused on that. I went years without cutting any records for myself, just running the business and doing those sorts of things.

MR: It seems like beyond just yourself you’ve been helping out new, growing talent for many years.

BC: Yes, and I’m very proud of that. I’ve been blessed to meet so many great folks and be a part of their career. Like Jimmy Buffett, we started him out in 1970 and still publish some of his tunes, and we’re still friends. I sang background on his first five records. A lot of the folks that came in as interns, a lot of the ladies that were my assistants went on to greater things, and some of the guys, too. We were able to kind of catapult some of them.

MR: That Jimmy Buffett connection… I think the songwriting on his early albums was solid. Is that because of your encouragement?

BC: I don’t know whether I had that much to do with his creative process or not, I think if anything I might have moved him a little more into the commercial side of it, because he was very folky in the beginning. The songs we wrote for High Cumberland Jubilee which also came out on a record called Before The Beach, most of them we cowrote, and they weren’t really hit songs, but they were entertaining songs.

MR: Let’s get back to Troubadour Heart. After you recorded this album and gave it a listen top to bottom, what was your impression of it?

BC: I have a feeling that the song dictates how it’s to be sung. I’ve listened to several interviews where people say, “This album’s kind of all over the place, musically” and I say that my influences and my roots come from so many different fields of music that I’ve got a little bit of all of them on this record. I just wanted to do the vocal like I thought the song dictated. I was pretty pleased to listen to it. It took us about a year to do all the cuts. Of course, “Goin’ Back To Alabama” is an old song, ten or fifteen years old, that we put in there. But I was relatively pleased with this, more than what some of the previous albums have been.

MR: Do you feel like between albums–and even as a continuing songwriter and artist–you are able to look at what you’ve done and say, “I’m still getting better at this!”

BC: I really have. I think since I started writing more for myself and going around doing festivals and clubs and some house concerts and getting out with the people, I believe it’s freed my mind up for more songs to come into it and be turned out. Whether I’ve reached my peak I don’t know really, I’ll probably try one more time to do another record, so we’ll see.

MR: Were there any surprises while recording this album? Maybe a song that took a right or left turn as you were recording it?

BC: Actually, yeah. “Troubadour Heart,” the title song, was more of a novelty-sounding song when I first wrote it, it had a line in it, “Be kind to your travelling troubadour, because one day he might be your son-in-law” or something like that, but I took it in a little more serious direction.

MR: Right. You were also Snuff Garrett’s assistant back in LA in the sixties, and you produced The Crickets and Leon Russell and those guys, is there any particular classic moment that makes you say, “If this hadn’t happened, the rest wouldn’t have either?”

BC: Oh gosh, I know that was a great opportunity for me to go out there at about age twenty three, something like that, to California and just work in those studios. I learned a lot about mixing…and Snuff taught me a lot about producing and I got to meet artists. I got to meet Jan & Dean in person after they’d cut our songs. That was a great era right there, ’62 to ’64 was when I was out there.

MR: Do you feel like if that hadn’t happened there wouldn’t have been a corner turn?

BC: Well when I came back to Nashville I kind of had a little bit of a name behind me, they wanted to send me back to Nasvhille to open a Liberty National office and I said, “I don’t think the timing’s right, I just got to California, I’d kind of like to stay out here a little while. But when I came back I had a little bit more notoriety than I had before I left. So I went to work for the great Bill Justice, I ran his publicist company and then I met up with Bucky Wilkin and worked with Ronny & The Daytonas in about 1968. I’ve had some good turns in the road that turned out real well for me.

MR: Interestingly, they wanted you to start a Liberty National when you started out as The Statues for Liberty.

BC: That’s right, we were one of Snuffy’s first acts, we barely hit the charts with a song called “Blue Velvet” and then I hit the charts with Garry Miles in 1960.

MR: I’ve taken enough of your time, Buzz. Do you have any words of wisdom before we part ways?

BC: Well I tell you, if music’s what you love, give it a shot, especially the young guys. You may just have one shot at it, and you’re only young once. You have the energy and you don’t have the restrictions on your life that older guys and gals do. Just go for it, be true to your music and your heart. And stay off the drugs, call mama, and always floss.

Benham Brothers Claim HGTV Was Bullied Into Axing Their Show

The twin Benham brothers appeared on CNN last night to discuss HGTV’s decision to ax their show, and the pair had some choice words for what they claim was bullying by the media in an effort to have their show cancelled.

David and Jason Benham lost their deal with HGTV for a new reality show that transforms fixer-uppers after their extreme anti-gay views became public knowledge. Flip Benham, their father, is an evangelical Christian minister and head of the protest group, Operation Save America, having protested things such as the Sandy Hook memorial and mosques. David Benham personally led a prayer rally outside of the 2012 Democratic National Convention, claiming “homosexuality and its agenda that is attacking the nation.”

“We love all people. I love homosexuals. I love Islam, Muslims, and my brother and I would never discriminate. Never have we — never would we,” David Benham said in the above clip. “Never have I ever spoken against homosexuals, as individuals, and gone against them. I speak about an agenda. And that’s really what the point of this is — is that there is an agenda that is seeking to silence the voices of men and women of faith.”

This isn’t the first time individuals working in TV have faced repercussions for their anti-gay views. Last December “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson made anti-gay comments in a GQ profile, leading A&E to suspend the star for a brief amount of time.
