John Fugelsang

Comedian and actor John Fugelsang called in to discuss his new tv show Page Six TV, shared stories of interviewing George Harrison and Paul McCartney, and talked about his upcoming appearance in Chicago at the Athenaeum Theatre as part of the “Sexy Liberal Comedy Tour.”

Laurence Juber

Laurence Juber returned to the show to talk about his new album “LJ Can’t Stop Playing The Beatles.”  We discussed the record, arranging complex Beatles songs for solo guitar, and his upcoming appearance at Beatlefest.  Plus: George Harrison blessing his baby daughter with the gift of music!

Slim Jim Phantom

Slim Jim Phantom is, of course, the drummer for the Stray Cats.  His new book is “A Stray Cat Struts:  My Life as a Rockabilly Rebel.”  It was great to talk to Jim about the continuing appeal of rockabilly, the amazing list of musicians he’s had the pleasure to work with (and his relationship with George Harrison) and share a little fan gushing about how influential he was in my becoming a drummer.

Louise Harrison

Louise Harrison is the sister of Beatle George Harrison, and she has assembled perhaps the best Beatles tribute band out there, “Liverpool Legends.”  Tomorrow night, they will be in New York City re-creating the Beatles famous 1964 concert at Carnegie Hall.   We talked about how she hand-picked the members of the band, what qualities she was looking for in someone to play George, and shared a wonderful story about George visiting her in the U.S. just before the Beatles exploded in America.
