6:38 minutes Lead guitar for Bad Company and Mott the Hoople, Mick Ralphs talks to Iris at Abbey Road Studios

In 1999, the most amazing thing happened. I was asked to join other broadcasters at Abbey Road Studios in London to interview an assortment of classic rock legends. One of my favorite moments was talking to Mick Ralphs, lead guitar player for Bad Company. He was warm and charming, and I felt like I had known him forever. We talk about his favorite Mott the Hoople song, Bad Company's catalog of songs about love, and I melted a whole lot when this man hugged me. Sigh. Miss you Mick! Hope Bad Company tours again. Enjoy this little trip down memory lane with me.

5:37 minutes Cream's legendary vocalist and bassist, Jack Bruce, chats with Iris at Abbey Road

When I did this interview at Abbey Road Studios in London, September 1999, we all thought there was no way in the world that Cream would ever perform together again. But they did. Jack Bruce brought along his wife and son to the interview sessions at Abbey Road Studios. As it turns out, his wife had ties to Oregon, so we got along very well. He answers questions such as what is his favorite Cream song to perform live? Who hasn't Jack played with?
How did Jack meet Ringo? Enjoy this little chat from London.

8:46 minutes The Pretenders Chrissie Hynde visits the Abbey Road Studios and chats with Iris
Iris and Chrissy

I want to be Chrissie Hynde! When the first Pretenders album was released, full of great songs and loaded with attitude, I knew this was a woman to respect. She is without a doubt the coolest woman on the planet. It's Chrissie's band, and I love her music. She talks about her influences, including Iggy Pop, and of course her music. I apologize if I am too much of a fan to be cool, but for crying out loud....It's CHRISSIE!

16:52 minutes Original Van Halen lead singer David Lee Roth talks to Iris

Diamond Dave is such a great interview. He is never at a loss for words, and there's always something interesting happening in Dave's world. This interview was done before the mighty Van Halen reunited with Dave as lead singer while he was out doing his own thing. He talks about an interesting attempted break in at his home, and many other things. Enjoy!
