Bye Bye Hobby okay and he loved any played piano as well and he played with jam man and there was a with Jazz van and it was always a set of drums set up in our in our living room and he taught me play drums. Initially okay he would play jazz music that with no singers he hated singers. They kind of got in the way I gravitated towards the towards the vocals things. Okay okay so you you were. What did your mom do? My mom was an artist and she was born in Poland and escape during the war lived in Brazil for about four or five years. There's move to New York. City was a commercial artist here in New York City. Her parents finally got out of Poland and arrived in He was a dyke chemist. I knew about and and they were pretty wealthy and so on and moved to Lawrence Mass and then Tragically my grandparents. My mother's parents committed suicide together which was a real tough deal on my mom and she switched and kind of dropped out at that point. She was an artist and so oh she my dad realized he had to get her out of here. When moved to California moved to San Francisco? When I was five? My mom fell in with the hippies and became like the very first first hippie my mom so she was part of that Timothy leary generation. That's unit what does that entail like. I always you know I hear of of like tune in drop out and is it just like stopped trying to conform to what society wants us to do just like live by the moment and I think so i. I think that's initially what it was. Yeah there was some LSD involved. Okay everything a little easier so me about drugs. Interested in San represents a fist bump between you and stay for those that miss that so in San Francisco. Where you kind of in a commune commute like no no because my my my mom my dad had sort of resisted all that and they just divorced when I was eleven and twelve i? I skipped second grade so I wanNA wait at school and in New Jersey in Prep School New Jersey. Even yeah yeah how did that make you feel inside. Like just this consistent going back and forth a little crazy to be honest My friends easily Lee or I didn't because I was moving so much you know so I had to kind of rely on myself. I grew up pretty fast that way I actually went to Prep School in New Jersey with Coton Talboys L. Boys Okay and neither one of my parents ever been there so they just kind of set me off and I was. I was thirteen. Where you're GONNA only child? No I had a brother. The younger brother five years younger okay and he stayed with my mom. My mother had custody but my father petitioned the court to allow me to go to this. Prep school saying this was is a smart kid or something you know whatever he told them away. Although al I'd go back and summertime Christmas Christmas and summer but but I was away for four years for the most part Sounds like it depends. He was independent though. Because what would that as a boy and prep school. You have freedom in a different way than most kids doing away because you're like it's like college but for kids horribly homesick. I'm sick when I first left obviously But you know you can get used to pretty much anything and after I was fine girl school down the street you went to school down the street down this career okay. So what was your describe. Wait before you do that. Do you remember the first record. You purchased Yup. What was it quarter to three? US Barnes okay or might have been wild eld one body right L.

Oh man made me do that. I graduated from from prep school year. Young because I'd skip second grade and he said to me I was sixteen. He said look.

Really only go to school and I'm going I was accepted did a cornell. I said I'm really want to know. No take a year off and bum around Europe. I said but Dan I'm GONNA play ball and he's it's the last thing Roy so I did. It just happened in. The woods survived the Walker folk to Europe. The challenge was just scaping bullets college tuition. Go off in that a little bit. I couldn't afford it so I just got a record deal but to wait eight sixteen in Europe. How does that work in one thousand nine hundred sixty six? There was not essay. So wasn't that one a big deal but not in no LSD. Not as this like. Was it a hostile situation. Now you didn't stay at a hostel. No no no Huey. Lewis didn't stay long stayed. Ah stayed at a buddy. I had a POW from prep school. English Exchange Dude stayed at his house in London for a few days and then I met a guy from from South Africa. Michael Jefferson together. We checked all the way through Europe and all that stuff and I would go every night we go to the youth hostel and I just play ARP in the in the square aware. Not all are rich. Every single one of them play harp in the square for money. Say Ah okay all right as a fellow busker. I gotta ask you what were the. What were the going rates for it? I'm assuming this is is Sixty eight sixty seven. What was a for me? Nine hundred ninety two sixty to eighty dollars was like date night. That was like four of us so we you know thirty. Th You know you're killing that that's a sandwich Wa wa and afternoon movie date was it. Was it a not do or die. survival. What yeah like what for you? What was like okay? I made it through the day or was it day-to-day like what am I going like. I remember in Africa uh-huh in Europe but I've got to North Africa. We went down to North Africa via Italy. I went to Marrakech Josh in Morocco. For just to see it and then I got so stone. I couldn't leave my it. We're GONNA leave every day then we'd wake up in Seventy gene you. How old is your? Let's see seventeen right block. Hey Wanna go. Was it a boat from Italy right across the water. Or what do you mean. Morocco flew to London right. And and that's another a long story but then I hit shake all the way from London all the way through France down through Spain took the little very wrong he hitchhike. You didn't have a limousine But there was a stowaway story. I heard that you stowed away on a plane to on okay within your. That's an interesting story. Actually as as I do that I wanNA know. I didn't really still thought I could stowaway. But this this was a member. One thousand nine hundred sixty seven or sixty eight probably sixty seven or sixty eight right in there and I hit checked across the country I and to go to Europe and then I stay. Stay with my buddies at at Harvard. who were at school there for a minute? Didn't see that coming back down to New York. We're here and I went to a guy and while it was hitching across country a guy picked me up and told me I said I'm trying to get to Europe. He says well you know But I I don't have that much money I had. I think I started off with three hundred dollars. And the plane tickets. Were like fifteen days. Okay and so I said I don't have that much money. I can't spend all on a ticket and he send away. He showed me. He told me about this idea where you get. The you know the jacket. The ticket goes in in the old days used used to take a special silver pen and write on the jacket and they looked at the jacket. They never this before so he says he or he says you can still way on this freight airline to I. I checked back down to them. I'd Awhile Airport. which is now Kennedy Airport and out answers there and and I Freight place and I couldn't get across the couldn't figure that out so I went back to the terminal the TWA place. And I just laid there for you know just kind of stayed there for till midnight and I befriended this Agent of TWA ticket agent. Cellino Buddy the opposite show tells me there's a way you can kind of sneak in always tell you what if you wait till I get off. I'll show you collective. You've jaw-dropping this now. So he he explained to me that you get the Jack Jack a jacket out of the envelopes side of the drawer and he had a special silver pen. He says you need this consume and then he says you're right on the outside London L.. HR flight seven go to and then he says and then go into the gate real early and just kind of make yourself invisible and it'll fill up and then when you get on the airplane all they're going to do is look. Could you jacket. And then go take the seat middle seat over the wing and they said and then but not years right the middle seat over the wing and take take the another terrible seat in case they say. Oh you're not someone else takes your season on my seats up there and then you but none of these flights were full in these days so the middle seat over the wing was like the last one to go so he says I said wow what happens if I get caught. He says the only way you're going to get caught at the end of the deal. She's going to count all all the people on the airplane and it's not GonNa jibe with all the people. They had the the podium. He's going to be one off and she's going to. They're not going to hold the flight up. They're just going to go. So if you WANNA be really safe he says you can buy a ticket and then just put it in the jacket but don't give them the ticket and when you keep keep the ticket and if if it works you get over when you get to London you refund the ticket and if they find out you give him the ticket and that's what I did so game hands and refund tickets Shit Huey Lewis. I'm just curious. When does the this finesse game? Like what year do you think stop. Computers Damn stopped everything everything you can't even ask fucked up not. Asa No not only were there no security already. You just walked right on the airplane but they gave you a little packet of cigarettes. You can smoke on the airplanes with little tiny ninety four. Pack Cigarettes Ashtrays cool man and on airplanes. Imagine every every armistead of the last year I remember on the wall. What's scary to me is when you get on an airplane now and you still see the whole thing I embarrassed the living crap Mom's listening to the story. One of my very first plane trips went to the bathroom. And there were You know no napkins there and whatnot and like Feminine Nephew so Oh pets so it took like Oh oh about ten embeds and I was in the front row there in the back and said that you know oh my I got you. That's that's the advertising without you. Yeah don't worry Ma so so. Do you remember the first concert. You went to good segue. That's that's a really good question. I'm very memorable all kinds of money. It'd be with Paul Butterfield at Here in New York at the Fillmore East no one before way before fillmore. We're talking nineteen sixty sixty four sixty five townhall nineteen so it was so crowded I gotta seat as I remember it I I know I got to see on the stage. The seats on the stage and a sat on the state DISOL- battlefield with Mike Bloomfield. Elvin Bishop Right drome Arnold on Bass Sam lay on drums. Yeah they were awesome. They and they took that was it. And this is pre well sixty four is like on on pre probably scenario maybe sixty five okay that pre PSYCHEDELIA. So was that a moment for you where you like. Maybe I could do this. Yeah absolutely I want to do this. I don't know if I get or not but that's happening. Oh how was already play our Monica a little bit. How did that lead you to clover go into to how Kluber came and then well took year off bummed around Europe after after high school? Like Dad says her Monaco went back went to Cornell engineering student at Cornell as you do all before prep school so I got. I didn't even hardly have to go to class my freshman year and I got a four point. Zero was no problem. I literally had it all before you were a math whiz. Right you know perky score on the sat kinda second Wayne. Wait of eight and dwayne different wordings at least perfect on his Memphis CDs. Yeah but I and so after that year off I went back to Cornell and I went the engineering school and I went in. That was not near as much fun as bumming around Europe with our Monica right and so Joined bands and I didn't really have to go go to class much so I played in fraternity bands until my sophomore year. It started catching up with me. You know right so Halfway through sophomore year and that was the year at Cornell where the average American student society took over the Willard Straight Hall and all that setting ah SDS and all that so he could take pass. Fail was the good news so we took pass fail. That was another semester. Got Under my belt. AH CUT UP. I called my aunt said buffs. Dropping out I'm going to be I'm GonNa ah I'm going to try and be a musician. He went whatever he said. You did what you did your bum around Europe. I told you I wasn't going to tell you what to do you. Life is your own good luck. Good parenting fuck well. It looked like pretty bad for the first ten years as long as a parent could for your father for being like do what you want during the formative years before you performed clover. Did you have any interaction with any notable future singer. Songwriter like anyone one that it's good question. Let me think now really uh-huh why. Why did that take me so long? Running into springsteen during his days of bar banding. I didn't see that. Uh now I mean Butterfield was was a thing for me and then when I dropped out I went back to San Francisco and then I started going to the fillmore. I and seeing that stuff and seeing You know Aretha with King Curtis. Hi at the Fillmore Auditorium. Joe You there reportings well once once one night and eventually since then released all eight nights. It was unbelievable video of that online too. I did not. Yeah okay. Yeah that was unbelievable. You know fillmore holds about eight hundred people people Laura fillmore original film moratorium like eight hundred thousand people. Oh said the one that I play at his been expanded in this one over here or the one that was that was huge. Winterland right yes. Oh you're talking about feel more easy written original fillmore auditorium right in San Francisco Still Gig there but it only holds eight hundred thousand people. I I didn't know that in my mind I thought it was like three thousand us like that. Okay go there again. We just worked at. It's it's tiny little tiny realize it at Henrik's Rick's in this place. I hear cream places back here. It was unbelievable. Okay when did you consider yourself a harp player or vocalist. Or we're both at the same time or when did you switch from one to the other because you get a lot about being harpist mostly putting her toy did my busking thing and then I sang and tonight then I joined a band when when I when I joined clover I sang a song or two. You know but my voice rough as it is was not a seventies hairband. You Know Journey Boston. It wasn't happening so I was big. I and so I just played harmonica in the clover thing so vocal wise. Who did you read Charles question no hesitation SC? Got My questions. and Johnny Taylor Yeah I'm a Castillo Freak. So everybody knows Your connection to well clove accent connection to my aim is true They were the backing band on that album for those that don't know right right. Sorry so yes clover. Clover was was High I well. Clover was first discovered by Nick Lowe in La Right at Actually by It's kind the funny story because our clover had made a record before I joined them there was a kind of vintage Country Rock in fact clover had a record in the sixties. Were on the cover. That was John mcfee. Had hair down to it overalls on with hair down to his waist and and they're all standing there all headlong here and they're standing in front of six foot high marijuana plants. This was like sixty eight is Willie Nelson had a coat and tie on at this point certainly was an and the Dalai poured in Puerto Wagner. Show was on and Willie was on it and there was no and this was clover. They were really ahead of their time and So when I joined that band We we we labored for awhile. And then Jake Riviera who managed Elvis and at the time was helping out with a group called Dr Feelgood and feel good was a and he was gone. They asked Jake to road manage their trip to set to la they were going to play the CBS convention in La. And so and they brought Nick Lowe Along Guitar Rhody just for a free trip to assist giggles for a free trip to America. So is the doctor feel goods Jake and Niccolo. So we're playing the PALOMINO club in L. A.. Clover is it's a country club country Western club. We're playing the Palomino and in what these six guys in like grey suits and short hair. You know who are these guys and turn. It was nick and Jake's because they'd seen that we were there and they knew about clovers I record and they were big Klay left country rock. They thought they I thought country rock pub rock was going to be the next big thing so they signed us to phonograph records and and we came. We brought us over to England and we can do it from the British side from the Monday. Well the day we landed Johnny Rotten spit in the face of the enemy reporter and the game was on. We were in the wrong long base at the wrong time. But we did a lot of sessions and the band the cord. What he means punk rock has just start right right? Well listen yeah right and Country Rock was not necessarily going to happen right So then so they were starting stiff records. Starting to stiff records. Jacob Dave together they managed Elvis Costello and Niccolo. Graham Parker rat scabies the damned and then they created stiff records and unfortunately it already signed us so they stuck us. They've realized that we were kind of an American man so they got to produce records in in Wales and Muddling Vima Langer. All right. This is before he ever had hit as a staff producer at phonogram and he did. I make some amazing amount of records year. Mike six or seven records a year and you know city boy and all these acts that never happened. And until you know until Kinda move over here. What was what were his work? Cabins like brilliant. Still the same consistent Just said unbelievable work ethic and you know he's brilliant. I mean he's just that's all he does he he. He's of one mind he just loves you just lays in the studio man loves loves it. Okay so just to continue where you left off so you. Clover wasn't on stiff. They were on phonogram records. Did they move to Steph. They didn't and because of stiff there was no stiff when we first signed to phonogram right Jacobs simultaneously. When punk hit they started stiff records? They signed all all these bands and we were still on phone again. And then they yeah so then I guess they signed. Elvis found Elvis. Jake gave him his name. I think declan MacManus gave him Elvis Costello and they was his name previously declan MacManus. We've known him forever. Robert how come you did a record with the man. You didn't know what his real name was. I didn't know I thought so gets into the sir. I need to know things just this notorious thing with clover and my aim is true so my question really comes down to so how did how did clover get that Gig and I have a follow up question. Jake Signs Elvis Costello and then he got nick loaded produce. It and nick used used us not me not me not my singer out. Our singer called with the other four guys as a rhythm section for that that record and they cut that record path away from my name is Julius cutting really cutting and the studio was was literally the studio and Control Room. Were as big as this room right here. And we're in a small studio was like four thing with the board by twelve eight track. Your maybe maybe it was sixteen. I don't even know but but it was and they they cut that record in in fact. Here's a great story for it. Because the first thing they did was rehearse obviously for before they went into cut and we were we were living in a place called Nigel range and Siri down the rented a house. That same house led Zeppelin cut all them. Big Records and eh Mike Drums. The big so called Headley grange. So they when Elvis Rehearse we setup set up in the in the living room and Elvis came down took the train down and rehearsed with the band for some well. I went to London because her Monica player with them and when it came back that night we had dinner there and we all had dinner novices. Gone today. And everybody's kind of good good good and my keyboard player Sean Hopper went telling you what the this this guy's lyrics are unbelievable. He's really genius. And Sean Hopper was the first guy to know how great Elvis Costello was. I think even before jake and Dave and all these for the management was in Sean was was a fanatic. Okay so as you just said you were a singer and harmonica player I guess weren't needed. There's no harmonica on the on the record when they got ready to do it. Elvis said to me I got a couple of songs and you could play on if you want to. I say great. Yeah it seems like there's a couple that could have had in mind but he's but they were cutting this Louis Week and it was we they were. They had worked us like crazy the management. Because you know they make money so we were working out and And so I took the week off. I said it's okay but I went to Amsterdam was okay. My girlfriend flew over. And we we. We saw it as a vacation week for the other two of us so I didn't plan to record but you and you weren't at the sessions the one session briefly but no I guess maybe it was a mixed session. I don't think I can't remember Br. I recorded that studio a lot and with the band so I know what it was like okay. Ultimately the question was. I knew you weren't on. It's nothing to do with Elvis. You might have been one mic session. You're saying Oh yeah that's the piece of information to mind. Not Sure I was there and then of course we're the say management you know so we would bump they were happening and we. We went to a lot of Elvis's early shows when he played the Nashville pub. And all that stuff and I watch a send you know. And he's a wonderful guy in and smart as you. Can you imagine. And so jake by the way and so's Nick Lowe and those three guys were so smart it was. I have one more question about the Tom was clover upset that they didn't get the permanent Gig with him and that he got the attraction starting with the next album the next year. Now we we we we you know. There's that band thing. We thought we were going to make any minute. And just always thinking you're GonNa make it any minute. Failure never breaks up bands. Its success that breaks right that. Damn yeah all right so when when we come back they're very close I'm also a huge Huey. Lewis Fan just a hey as are you from quest love supreme in are you like me. Have you always wanted a Sonos. Jonathan my mother who has sonos throughout the house and like Brag it. Well you know what those times have changed because now we have Sonos move.

What's next the ban imploded? In seventy eight correct or employee out you guys broke up we broke up with amicable or just kinda. We lost lost a record deal and we came back and And then mcphee mcphee and join the DOOBIE brothers sort of. That's kind of what happened. But yeah it was pretty amicable. So would lead to the development of Huey Lewis and the news. Well let's see I was so now we we'd always played Monday. Night was a fun night for us in in in Moran because it was just a night that we always used to have jam sessions and stuff you've and one of the local studios asked me. I WANNA local club said do you want to residency your residency. You're so I said look. I'll give me Monday nights and so I did a thing on Monday night live that I invited all these different musicians and we had a Monday night live band and we had theme song and all Latin Comedians and and it was kind of fun and with the ban we would slowly. I was singing I got I got sing all the songs for the first time either. Reluctant leader reluctant. I am but I wasn't sure it's GonNa work. You're I'm trying it out a little bit. So but that's that's what we develop that Monday night live and studio owner sauce and made it in and said Hey. Would you like some Demo Mojo time was it. Original stuff said covers well we. We didn't have mostly covers. We'd written three songs And then I said you want some free studio time. I said sure era and they gave us like a day so I thought and we were doing funny stuff in our Monday night live. We did a disco version of exodus. Exodus go we call. It was pretty funny and it's actually heard. Yeah and and the Horn player on it. We got we got to pee wee ellis to play horns. Wow Yeah really okay. Now do anything. Like after James Round's then he can play them and be weakened flat play. I know man. Wow it's so so. We cut this disco version X.. For a laugh and it was very funny. We had a nice day. Will now I get a call from Nick Lowe and saying look. I've just written this song and I think I think I swiped it from you. I we need he says It's called what looks the best on. You is me and yeah and I told him that joke you know so I sit down not said. Don't worry about he's no seriously I feel like I owe us something I said. No I don't give me a ticket to London and back in visit. He says okay. I'll do that to me. Says I got an idea. Come to London and play my record. An Edmonds wants to cut bad as bad one one of my songs and we'll do both of those things we'll do. Molyneaux said great so he flew to London. We went straight to the studio those days and Cut Cut bad is bad with Dave edmunds and rockpile and then cut born fighter. With Nick Lowe played harmonica and that and we were done it was like two or three and a half now from the record company to hear the tracks and they come down they come to thing and they listen to the song couple of songs they go. Ahmed sounds great. And there was a lull in the moments that you guys want to hear some them funny he said Yeah and I put on a disco. Well they loved it they said man that could be a hit. I said whatever they come come see see us tomorrow. We'll make a deal and they left. I said to Jake that they leave the room and I go jake what do I do. He says you go in there. Yes for thirteen points. You want three thousand pounds advance and and there you go. And if they want anything to be like a remix or and that stuff as long as they pay for it that's good but make sure you get the three thousand pounds. Don't leave without the Gen and I said it's not went there and made a singles deal and that come home to San Francisco. I said boys we got got a singles deal and then I cut with with with three thousand pounds. Got Studio time actually. It's it's the funniest story because they wanted more vocal on on on exit disco saw lead singer come on baby come on down yet. So they want me to a little more vocal on it. I said no problem skimming commute. Three thousand jet. You're your own manager negotiated. How's everything so now get back an and I go to the studio? I said man. We gotta the deal for it. I gotta put some vocal some more vocal on it. We go to the multi-track shape and it also had tones on that real and while they align line the machine they raced thirty seconds of the master tape that we had recorded exodus. This you know so I went. Oh my God what what awesome so great engineers. So now I told them I said look. I'm going to have to replicate this record. You gotta give me a week. They I said we'll give you whatever you want. Where's the give me five days? Okay fine here so I so. I took the exit discos. Don't fuck around the to track that we ED and I put it on two of the twenty four track and I sang another track and I mixed it down to do track and that took like four hours when we were done and then cut these three other songs with the hustle hustle the teen in our manager. And eventually I record guy documenting your every life but do you have a book deal where you intelligent music business. Because I'm in the music business I would totally buy that shouldn't say Cornell so I KINDA WANNA skip over not skip over wanaka eighty no no do like this is first of all. Can I assume that the bad is bad. You cover nicloas also. The bad was Dave Edmunds born chomping. Blues Shuffle though he needed but then but then we reappraised it as the acapella thing right on sports okay. So it's still the same song that same name so what I wanted to know but a completely different version. Yeah okay okay. So what what I do WanNa know is how was bills Ni being steely. Dan had that I am. How is bill? How did he get involved with the very first Lewis record his his engineering? Know your stuff stuff I wanna because the thing is is that we're snakes done a lot of stuff right. Yeah but most like he was the engineer of the classic Steely stuff and really I feel like his sound was the proprietor of I. Don't know if you consider that the four letter word word of the the perfection of yacht rock sounds the back clean that so what was it. Did you have have reservations with like. What was your view because the thing is you express a lot of opinions especially on Sports with bad is bad and also the hard rock and roll about what I assume Your criticism of you know what what is raw and true to the music versus you. Know the The scene of whatever's commercial today some soon. I'm assuming that you come from purity's standpoint. They sound like American psycho. I I know where you're going. Why was it the fact that I mean? What made was he chosen for you or yeah? He was chosen for us because they even though we'd had you know we were more experienced than most new bans. I was twenty but I was twenty nine years old and that point which is and so he was you know he worked with. He did boss boss. Silk degrees low down. He's a great shades of famous engineer. He's a great engineer And so yeah we work with we work together and we have this joke because we worked together couple times of the year and we don't work together well knows how was there talking about what was the was their conflict musically it never worked. I Love Bill. Say He's a good friend of mine right but it you just we just never I guess our taste maybe didn't match or I don't know why and he's a brilliant engineer it just we just never could hit it you you know. We never got anything we ever did together. Just didn't happen so seasonal second record now get segments. What is it and I told the manager my manager? I said look we can do this ourselves by this point. We'd had we auditioned producers. And you know gone through Zillion of them and Why aren't you using Niccolo as a producer? Well we were now here. Bill Nichols You know I don't know Chrysalis at this point or Christmas. Okay and he just differently at this point we. We felt like we could do it ourselves. That our manager what to fight went to bat for us so then we started making records. Also wants you to discuss Phil from Thin Lizzy Phil Phillip. Yeah and you played on a couple of thin lizzy well like. What was the relationship there? And how well L. WE close in clover. We toured with thin lizzy. Okay and Philip was an unbelievable guy. Unbelievable performer reformer. First of all the hard rock band with soul you know what I mean. They were just great and Brian Downing. He's back up now but he play. He can shuffle which didn't didn't used to happen in London. In England. You know the guys. There's certain beats that just the British. The British weren't too cool and then couldn't and couldn't swing somehow but Brian Downing was great and thin lizzy were unbelievable and Phil just kind of took me under his wing man and said He. I played on a few of his things and I lived in for a minute. And he would dress me out of his closet and He was just a he taught me more than anybody how to run a band and how to you know just all kinds of stuff. I've learned everything everything not necessarily musically but everything other than music. Okay so on on your second album based on where the placement of do you believe in love is on that album which is like Kinda the middle side to can. I assume that was the last song recorded the record. Damn Good Yogurt exe- we needed a hit kinda thing and they. I thought this was the thing that said okay. The thing is what makes that song standout so much to me. So how did you guys at well. First of all as a unit. How long were you guys together in the process and the practice process and to get that good guys play like you like each other? Yeah worth what are you saying years for the roots to like each other each other. Now we're old as men. We wow shit just got real therapy the I will say into that. Yes the chemistry and the jailing of course comes together on that record but I- based on the tightness of the army's. That's where I feel like you guys really shine where most groups don't like you know occasionally eagles with that level too. Yeah so so Lotta parts how we the secret is good. Singers and Johnny Cola are saxophone. Guitar is a great singer. Okay Okay and and and also an great arranger and bill or drummer sings and Sean sings base and we have a kind of a okay blend. We're just there's lucky that way. Nobody I mean it's a little bit. It's a blend blend it either. Works doesn't it is what it is but But that's what that is and Johnny Col- gets most of the credit for that for the vocals arrangements and stuff okay. He's he's great. So how did you wrestle that song from Mutt without him producing it. Well how do we get the song or did he. dimwit perfectly you guys dating Beta. I rewrote it a little bit. It was he had it. We both believe even love. We both believe it's ours. You really give enough. Yeah you really make me see the stars and Went I. I asked for throw away like do you have anything for Song I said. But you gotTa Song we need to song and this is supposed. ACDC Mutt because yeah now oh so now. He's on fire and that sort of thing. I think it's post. Yeah it has to be eighty two. Okay you're right yeah. So how did you wrestle it from out. I wrestled from him. No he was it was it was great. He just sent it right away okay. He's a good friend at Mutt. And he's a brilliant. ACDC foreigner and all the Twain. So can you tell me I'm GonNa Course. I mean be remiss to not say that we have acknowledged that of course the the rise of MTV was very instrumental in the millions of records. So that you know for the the sports album your third album but could you tell me what was the touring environment like before sports as opposed to afterwards as far whereas right what was what was what was rock. What was touring like for pre em TV kind of like where you guys Chitlins circuit? You know yet one tapped hit like what. What was the environment like one tour? We're called working for living tour where we had all of this on one bus right and the crew in the thing and we went out for ten weeks we. We held our record back because we were just finished with sports record. And we basically just finished it and then The record label. We had mix it yet and the record label went belly up crystals and sold out to CBS. Christmas sold out down. Crisis versus went shut down their distribution and all their stuff and went with CBS distribution. They fired about most of their employees a lot of their independence independent stuff they got rid of and just became a label and CBS is gonNA distribute well. We weren't sure how that was going to work out so manager decided we just hit the road and try and pay for ourselves so we did a ten week working for living tour. We did all the clubs and all all that sort of stuff you guys alone or with other their acts or as soon as the record hit we you know we got a tour. We toured with well Thirty eight special toured with total a little bit toed turtles and you could feel the record happening you know are are you can just feel people showing up for the record now. I mean there are different different types of audiences for pop music. And you know have you ever encountered or toward within act WHO's fan base was different than what you desired. I mean sure over clover. We Open for Alice. Cooper at at the Nassau Coliseum got bombed long island gut rotate 'em eighties and a year and boom. Yeah Gordon then protects you guys. They wasn't a the album route not known for its security. I mean the thing is is that you know what what what audience is specifically your audience as opposed to like was was there any worry any worries about pairing with another act in. Yeah Yeah we are. I we lose. The the news is first tour was with the Doobie brothers because they were house. Vars and mcphee Ma. Our clovers guitar player was now playing with the Dube's right. So that we we got that tour where the agency you know that so we went out with a dubious for national tour and we got basically booed off. What does the party the not quite Budapest? We knew enough to go from song to song before they could book. But if you if you would if you just wait just be quiet it will go. ooh ooh I remember. Where's your art? What's the worst? Let's say North America in your mind. What's your favorite territory? Where they're open like I must parts like I know where they're open minded and where I can stretch with the stuff and then I know where it's it's going to be even twenty years in the game where I gotta hit him with the hits and get out for you? What are you rolling your eyes at like? Okay we gotta go back to you like what territories were not to La Stuff L.. As always been tough for us to San Francisco Band and we've always you know we'll in in and the I mean we'd go down there and we you know there was X.. And then there was the who the other bands are zillion bands who all did great but we never they never reckon dust down there. We could never never get over never getting until then once once I remember we we finally years later we played we. We played three forms three. La Forums. And now we're back in la again and we had three forums. I night everybody's there. You know all the Museum of the total guys all right. Oh musicians are there sn as their you know all the all. I'm nervous appears in. Yeah all that stuff and then sold out not so I remember thinking be just. Don't press. Press relax just don't press relax you know. And it's like I'm. I'm a kind of a veteran now so I go out the first night and I play what I think is a great show. We have a great show. Finally I wasn't nervous. I feel great any time I get I before that when I get a bad review when we we actually got great reviews starting up but whenever I get a bad review it was always a bad show and I could always think to myself. You know what he's right. I could've been better. That's right it's it's no probe so this time Ellie form first night. I've I is a great show. We go back to the hotel. Go to bed. Wake up in the morning impart WanNa see the paper every everyone everybody in this room knows where this is. You know my managers having breakfast and he goes. Hey everybody who had a got a great review in the La Times. Come on down eat breakfast. Aw Aw that's so fast. How hopefully with Robert Hilburn just tore me up the damn it? What's that about? Well here's here's you guys appreciate. Just think hope but so i. I struggled with that because I know we were good that night and I wasn't nervous. I knew we were good. And it just bothered me for years. Now I'm recording another other record at Lucas Lucas Studios skywalker ranch and George Lucas and they just opened. This is amazing studio. And All and Georgia's is giving me a personal tour and we go around. He shows me everything. It's really great. He's now I the house unbelievable where the lunch and also now the ranch and all it says. Now let's go look. Let's let me show you. The studio is a great. He's Linda Linda Ronstadt. That's when he was dating. Oh she was dating George George I said Oh great. Great go in the studio and there's Linda and she goes oh man Hughie guy. I love your book. Just funny should be here because Brian Wilson showing up. I've been a minute to do some vocals. I said you're kidding me. No I said wow you might have I just hang out.

I know you're just I saw your show I've seen shows as my top ten might have been top three top three shows I've ever seen ever ever the top three top three. I said well thank you really great. Do you mind if I share that with my guys. Yeah no no problem I said. Wow that's gonNa make our whole day haven't we're was it he's in La four which night which NASA's first night signing we know. Brian Wilson since gives me wrong. Brian Story you discuss. Then people mentioned Wilson. Because I didn't WANNA goes super quest. Love Hyper Bowl when I- i- per superbowl yes I am this is my favorite sport hyperbolic. I love hyperbole. When I wanted to pair their harmony game came close to that of beach boys? That's how tight you gave it. An and they were a big influence on us in clearly innocent. That's why you know I agree. Okay I WANNA bears myself but Sorry about Robert Man but now that you say it Yeah Yeah L. A. has not been kind to a lot of greets There's the infamous prince. Oh Yeah Rolling Rolling Stone So where he got mercilessly isley boots. I mean there's plenty of that's weird that you say that. La Is I can. I can imagine I can imagine that I think for for you. It's probably easy to do. Spot outside of La with is not the pressure to. Here's watching you Detroit Tolsey Oklahoma. These are good towns for us on Tanna Lewis. Can't they can't stop talking. We're getting the contract. I mean it's magic. No no I mean it's it's it's like a sports for towns the great sports okay. That makes a big rock and roll towns Townsend L. A.'s the worst baseball town on the world. Today we had heard for years. The Cleveland was was the was the best rock and roll town in America. I thought really. HOW CAN CLEVELAND BE? I know so. We played the Agora there and had this amazing gig and afterwards words were driving out of town in the bus and and it's a gray kind of a dismal day and the skyline. The Cleveland is pretty pretty rough looking. And I said I said to the guys and we'd have this great gig. Wow you guys you know what the harder harder rock and roll rally is in Cleveland. I said Oh my God. That's a song in Cleveland. In my my the genesis of the they ended up leaving the hard rock and roll in Cleveland. or I'll work on it and so that was the the I've been fucking good because I've been saying the hard rock. Rules beat the issue that I thought got it was the beat. beat like they'll beaten. They'll be old boy may be barely breathing. Okay rock and roll was still be. Okay thank you can really what it's about it's about you know the rock and roll business is in La in New York but the you find good bands everywhere. Music is everywhere. And that's what. that's that was vindicated. now vindicated. Did you feel when they announced in eighty seven that the role of fame was going to be. Well still beat because we were all like what and then once they gave their reasons. I was like okay. Okay so were you at all shocked at the reception adoption of sports at all. Well yeah I mean you know. The thing is when I listened to sports right as I realize raise. Then we're making our records. This is eighty. We made the record in eighty two release eighty three. And I'm sorry. What studio We cut mostly at the record plant and it Fantasy records and and a place called Studio D in Sausalito. Las Alito. Did some over dubs there and Bob Corker mountain mixed it here at the power station right here in New York but if you think about it eighty-three radio we always king. MTV It just started there was a big beef about MTV wasn't playing any diverse artists. But what they were doing is they were following radio and records as is play list. Exactly that's why some tunes which are hits head those horrible videos that over and over again we have those but it was a radio world and there was no internet. There was no no pop. Radio World No computers so you had by then. CHR radio was the only format you know. Radio top forty started with a guy in Fresno with the advent of push button radio a programmer in Fresno figured out that if with push button radios if people heard something they didn't like they switch the channel so the idea was narrow your playlist list top forty play the hits over against they never leave and and then. FM came as an alternative to that with all the the album cousin but but within eight years it was programmed and CHR was the format could debris radio on f every two and so. We all competed for that format which was a hit single. And if you did not have a hit single you didn't exist so our job making our regular was to have a hit and so you mean six six. Well that's it. We end every every song at radio. Different one was kind of a rocker. Servicemen was kind of not a rocker was kind of a little more rb but we knew we needed to hit. We didn't know we're going to have six of them we we we need to one. Wouldn't do aim for like three top ten hits in a single. I tried to make everything a hit and and now that I listened back to sports it is an album of its time. It's a collection of singles. One Song doesn't have anything to do with the other song. I mean finally found a home and bad that is banned. These are these are like different genres amusing entirely in a way a subsequent albums. Hold together much better as albums. You didn't clearly. You didn't think about that as you were making this. It was just it was just a hit or just make a hit. It wasn't like make a vessels we could. It does matter and make an hei song. I'll go one above. You've en- TV and ask you. Did you ever fathom in your life that one day your song Specifically the hard rock and roll would ever be utilized in a soul train dance line. uh-huh where the fact that you guys have rotation on soul train for one year do we. We really would. So here's the deal. So Cornelius had had taste. Here's confirmed was in eighty four okay so black people's relationship with MTV's is rather strange. Because of course you know rick regimes hat legitimate beefs like well. I've sold out stadiums. I'M NOT ON TV. So the thing is to watch Michael Jackson videos especially that most cable networks weren't in the inner city they were more of a suburbia thing so we would have to plan weekend so I would spend like a weekend. Am I tell you bill. I I just remembered like going to my aunt's house in in Kentucky and she had TV. Yeah and that's the thing most of my weekends in nineteen eighty three eighty four. y'All can I guess midnight night on on cheering. Alkyl Judy's house so I would go to the suburbs of our mountain back when I was a suburb and I would sit in front of MTV e seventeen hours now yes to wait for those five rotations of beat it to come on and Billie Jean however all that other stuff into you guys are coming to remember the pet Benneteau one where the Nazis or doing the House for children children. Yes literally like all this. Thomas Dolby. The Nina Ninety nine left everything that defines MTV be. I'm I'm absorbing Jess I can wait for the Michael Jackson videos but I'm after nine nine rotations of this now I'm fans of them too and just moments thanked the whole audience went. That's why I knew all this shit. You're waiting for every hour and a half. So so the thing is is that in eighty four I think Don Cornelius saw the paradigm shift so the first sign of it. It was during the during the TEENA. Marie episode of eighty four showed Before then what. I'm saying. They showed the wrapped around your finger thing that was weird from the video world. One of the rock grades the police. I'm wrapped around your finger with like we look at each other during the run DMC episodes soldiering. Ask Me what they were. I mean bully Marine Louis. Yeah so the point. Is that during the run DMC. Dad's been episode. They showed the Rackaroos nerd. That must have been awkward. No it was I mean then it was like you know. I realized that Dan realize he had to play. The game of the dame the thing was you had to amalgamate modern pop inside. You'll format things weird like I think once he tried to make Genesis illegal alien work but the songs like one hundred fifty premiums to the dance. It's too fast to dance to do the whole thing with that shit hard rock and roll three for you guys to be placed on the soldiery and Dan's line which is like career that's prime real estate spot. That is a major shit Dansk. It was a cultural. I never saw harder rock and roll until it is what I love it. It's a thing trust me.

Unbelievable I mean you know you can imagine Just you don't get to meet all those people in in in a lifetime or a career and I mean and Ray Charles's there I couldn't go. I couldn't even introduce myself to reach normally really I just. I just hung back and watched him a lot. I totally understand. I'm just totally off rituals. And then thank you bond with anyone. They're like. Yeah Paul Simon was Craig Bohl was nervous to be your besides Ray Charles de got it. Well Bruce we hung out with. Bruce told jokes for a long time. It was the nobody in there but the artist for a long time and it was really amazing so all your people stay Green Green Room and then we're just it was just us and man it was. It was an amazing evening. How long did general background vocals take to do for that session? The because I know you that you're one of the leads but all the backroom not long. How long did it take the record in general well we started after the American Music Awards George so that was probably eleven well early in La so six to nine? So we're there ten o'clock about and and we went all night and then the Dylan's thing that he sang was in the morning was like six seven the morning we tell it looks six. Am My goodness looks like six. Am Six so okay. Here's the thing. I combat background. Voters are probably done ten a bit. There were done by midnight or twelve thirty now. We all saying the same part right. He did all the parts and then we all saying the same bar. Unison Unison. Right and then they put them together so I would almost say that you're a game has to be on point because as I would assume that it could be very intimidating to Singapore and all these people so it was a situation where like look. Okay Oh you got me singing right after Michael Jackson can I just punched in like punched in or like it was funny. 'cause I you know nervous my lakes my leg was shaking my. I couldn't stop my leg from shaking. I was so nervous right. And and of course we start and Humberto Gatica was uh was the engineer and so they start boom and they wanted to go one. Full pass all the way around. Because right it. Had to bleed the microphones one down down one up and like that and with the ambiance and everything so they didn't want to punch and all that they WANNA get one full performance so they started with Lionel and Stevie wonder and Steve is messed this thing kind of almost on purpose just being cute and funny so they stop the tape and then they go back and they started again and they get about halfway and Algebra messes up a stop and they go back how and now he comes out to justify guy said he. Can you run the whole. Oh peace and we can have a shot. Quincy sang me the line. No you had Michael Signi. The Line Quincy says. Sing it for me. Yeah Sanguinis is great. Go again so I want to try it right and keep stopping and keep stopping funny. We went all the way through and Then when we finish and he and now Quincy says Chris Good. But I'll tell you what let's do one more Huey. Why don't you sing harmony with with Cindy he comes in. Okay okay well. That's a creative choice. Singer harmony was one of my and and I got stevie wonder about it. I'M GONNA make up this thing and you know so you know it worked out. I don't even know you know what I did. I was so that Boko wasn't concurrent. No portion all the way through and when we cut it you know Michael was right next to me and and he was he didn't Miss A trick man. I mean he in his kind of little basie way did not miss a trick he knew exactly what was going on. And so when I asked asked Umberto I said can you let it run through so we can run our lives. You good idea. It's good so now now ruining your head and finally we do this one past. That's really hey good. And now he goes number and quincy goes all right good. Let's do one more and we want to one more and he goes and Michael urgently. Louis grabs his shirts. They're gonNA see that aren't they said. Yeah they're going to see that when he was that was one. I said I know it was one. Listen Zanex Michael did not miss a trick. How did you get? How were you picked? As one one of the Solo People Timothy. You know Renault Group. I got prince's line the vice. Yeah we got imagine singing right before Michael all little dirty imprinted. Thanks Michael Charter. Set up like well you go first and then you You follow me. Wow Yeah No. Prince didn't and show the whole deal. I think he was just too nervous to be around all those people and plus He. He's the type of person that has to have complete control over everything records. Yeah he's in so yeah so he wasn't about he. Michael had way too much so last minute. I didn't know I thought it was done. And I'm over there. Well we finish the vote. Great gives his his Co. quits. He wants to see it but I can walk back into the studio. He goes smelly cinema line and called the line. Michael things he's alive. I sing it. He goes good. You got it and it was prince's line that I got was that line is fairly high in your range from not mistaken. You afraid of that line honoree just you felt it. What's your freight of the line? Because it's it's higher in your rains. I went for him. He Sang Sang a back. That's all I you you know I was so I mean that is kind of like a fog for me. I was so nervous. Imagine Yeah Yeah. There's your meals Bruce Springsteen Bob Dylan Ray Charles. Dan ackroyd forget by Stephen. Bishop there to you know it was somewhat somebody like really odd was just Dan ackroyd. He was the odd one out oh USA for African Canadian. Waylon Jerry was was there waylon Jennings. We did not have a good time. He was upset. He's upset and he walked in the middle of the deal he split. Oh wow serious. Stevie Steve Stevie at some point wanted to the background vocals to be swayed. Say That yeah. Yeah yeah about that. So we we we sent out for the two African gals news will speak swayed. Translate the background vocals. And when it came into the studio and they were all standing around these stand there. Okay okay now what does this say this data this great uh-huh Gerald ribose ring the bell. Quincy Yeah it was a break off of a break in the action right and now we're taking a break and I'm just shadowing Ray Charles is what I do. I just stand three feet away from talking to stop. Doc sits down the piano and starts playing this kind of blues thing thing and he goes eight q member this one. And he's playing like that and Quincy looks at me and he goes. You Know Lanta Ritchie wasn't even born when we cut that saw. Aw really didn't Seattle right you right pretty cool now. Now I'm talking to Willie Nelson over there and he's going is going. Hey I hear you play golf. I said Yeah just started. It's fun to do on the road. He was that's what we do. I said I just put your clubs on a bus. I said Yeah. We put a clubs on a bus and we play guys. Yeah that's what we're doing and we're talking with Bob Dylan comes over. Walks over and he goes. Are you guys talking about golf. Wow that's outrageous Nashville. Skyline was is outrageous just golf. Is this officially the first time that you're meeting your peers or okay. So would was there any bonding in your career to that point with notable celebs like you weren't bff's with the guys from toto or glow but Dylan wrote me a really nice note man at the end of the deal wrote me sent me and he sent me a song really. He sent me a song that he didn't cut. WHOA which is a complete mistake? Note obviously send you a song you did somebody else end up cutting. No I never heard. It never heard it soon but he also sent me a junior parker song. He he was great. You won't be really Nice Note. He's smart you know Bob Dylan is smart so okay I have a question now. It has joined Columbia House. Always always say that also education comes from the fact that I never sent the records back when I got them at Columbia House. So it's like him back. I do want some days you you have thirty days to center. Never pay for the O.. L. The scam. I didn't have hustle women so that said in having having all all of your your records. I'm now noticing that with the massive amount of units units sold for sports. Usually people figure out. Okay I'm GonNa do the departure record like the opposite of it which I'm GONNA say for small world but so you guys actually decided to keep up stamina with four. So how hard was it to live up. Is it that pressure like okay. Now we're in the machine like I feel like breaking in his heart but staying there is even harder very very perceptive man. You're very perceptive really. I actually actually told him to know ah his name and says oh no. Because it's rare. It's I can name few instances I mean we're Ritchie. Tried to follow with with we. We can't slow down and dancing on the ceiling with thriller and Bad Sports Parts for anyone else. Does the departure record next. What your mind state of okay? We got to come back the same or will this. This is because as economics here because in in back in those days you know it wasn't wasn't wasn't internet and all that muscle if you sold a if you had a big record at your next record was shot. You know a million units right out of the box so the idea. It was hit him while they're hot. Make your next record as soon as you can and no matter. What and that's the and that's how you make you know so? We sold ten million copies. Copies of sports will four was was already going to go four million no matter what it was like right so that was a problem because we had an and they were honest just for deadline. Wanted and you know you got to write the songs. It's hard to right and so that was a a tough record to make for us. We were struggling. And we wound up over over here in in the power station. Finish fish enough under deadlines with two studios going singing in one and playing guitar. Any other mixing in the third and it wasn't wasn't a fun record to make because you're right. We did it really to just capitalize on her success. You know but I think there's an art to not over thinking it. And that's why now the thing is do you with with the with the words that Brett Allison Alison for American psycho right. Did you feel as though they were being sarcastic or D Phil. I feel as though he wrote that in truth as far as being your most accomplished records and in the I thought he did. It was amazing I read I heard about it. I read the book I and he had these little dissertations not only us but Phil Collins and Tina and he nailed it. I thought I mean he was clearly fan and he was he understood. I thought he did a pretty critical job. And then they asked us for the film right would would he Would we could use the tune right. I knew dude I knew the story and all that okay. Sure which William Defoe Right. Yeah Love William to follow. And it's an art cranial and I said no problem you got it. And and they I paid us and they got the song then. What happened was maybe a month before the song that before the movie was released they said to the QA manager you just said they want to do a soundtrack and he said well great? What that's GonNa what's that GonNa look like and it was? It was hip to be square. I think there was a Phil Collins tune and the rest was like source. Music was like a kind of a crappy record. Wasn't gonNA be a great album the ALP and so a manager by your record two It's probably best to just buy your albums. Manager said to me says what do you think about this. They want to do a soundtrack album. I I said well. That's not going to be fair to our. I mean mean fans are going to buy that for what for one song. I mean. It's just I do we have to do. This is no no. It's not a part of the deal. They just they just mentioned it. I said Yeah. Let's politely decline which he did So now on the eve the release of the movie that literally they sent out a press release that says has that Huey Lewis has pulled his tune from the soundtrack because the movie is too violent trying to gin up attention for the movie really and I thought on those please not cool not cool show as well. Let's go back to back to the future. which by the way can I say that I did not realize that you had a cameo in that movie until like a week ago? This guy I did not realize that was you. Yeah that was the idea really just kind of disguise me it worked. It took thirty years for me to realize this guy's pretty good so I wasn't expecting it to be with with how you treat it music videos and your your your Hollywood looks. You could have been the Kunia videos with. Why did you not explore acting further in or were you loyal to the guys and I don't WanNa leave them out there and we were doing what we wanted to do? We were writing our songs and selling out venues everywhere where everything was great. The video thing is funny because we actually did. Our own we did of. There was an outfit called Video West in San Francisco. I video camera camera ever videotape. This is brand new. This was seventy eight brand new and so she said we'll video a couple years songs our Asong if we can show it on our video west program that on cable who is all this stuff was new. I said sure so we and you can have the video so we shot the video. They showed it and the video helped us get a record deal when we got the record deal and we do believe in Love was our second single and now now the record label decided. I'm a first single off of that record a second home. By this point we were making our. We're producing records. We produce their second record picture this ourselves and so but they decided that we needed a professional video and so they hired an adding see guy to do the. Do you believe in love video. And the set was all in pastels and Matt. We had kind of Pastel shirts that we're kind of matching makeup. You know in Little Rouge on her cheeks and stuff. This is the video where the five of us are in bed with a girl and all this stuff and so they shot this video all day and night and now we go home and now two weeks later we go back to the playback and we go back into and at Christmas records and a bunch of people from the record company bunch of people from the video company company. My Band. Much of our guys would probably thirty people in the room and so they say okay. Here's the new video and the lights and they play the video and my I and I just sank. My heart is so terrible I it was just horrible. I just th. There's no direction. The guy wasn't singing to the cameras. He loses sing thing into what's going on here. The whole thing was a mess I thought and we look silly with rouge on her cheeks and all that I said this is almost billy squire route and I remember thinking this. This is terrible this is horrible and the video ends and everybody stands up and apply scanning so I thought to myself anybody can do this. We're doing on records. We need to do our own video so from then on. We did our own videos. And the idea was the don't ape the song don't have anything to do with. If the songs eggs make the video. Zag Don't tell. Don't retell the story and and just goof goof and we did a in San Francisco a different sides of Petroleo almost just to let the let the SEGEL's in the ocean would that be the be be the production stuff but the chew the scenery and that was the theory and and we did a bunch of that way. Would you want to drug if this is it Stuck with you. That is bad. All these done in the same manner. Saint points up to you about something I can't. I can't count the amount of times. Feel the kitchen sink water Of One of the opening scenes about one in new drug. Is You know the the the single yeah with water nights water. Oh and you're right. I swipe that right I still wear. Paul Newman Harper The opening scene of Harper and Paul Newman. He wakes up hung over right with ice in the sink puts his hand. I never was cold. Yeah this is what People WanNa fuck. It was unbelievably cold. Okay it really was. It was really cold. You really wish I I knew you back early in my career because this is the second thing that I never thought about until right now that sometimes you should just make a video for a song that has has nothing to do. I never thought of that whatsoever over thinkers. We WanNA stay out of the way the song I was always were. I always thought you know might do. We have to the retail. This story songs. Tell a story I always say much in. The way of good book is better than the movie. A good song is always better than the video for the same reason town and is now way too. Late arrowsmith Dr Videos. We just never appear in our videos now. So can I follow up yes so Nikolov with that so so with With with that theory of yours with the videos videos and now you're supplying songs to a movie. Did you use that same theory. Like power of love is not necessarily telling the same stories. Yeah Rusty what happened was Steve Bill were Bob. Bob Gale asked to take a meeting with us at Ambler blended Amblin in La and we went there and took a meeting and say look. We've just written this film called back to the future and our hero hero. Our League guy called MC fly and his favorite band would be Huey Lewis and the news so we thought how would you like to write a song for the film and I say wow. I'm flattered I don't know I don't know how what writing for film means never written for Film. Don't have any idea I said. Besides I'm not too keen on writing the song back to the future and they said Oh we don't care what you call it. We just want one of your songs so I said okay. I'll send you the next thing we right. Wow which was our love. It was literally the next thing you wrote after that phone call. That was the next thing we wrote. Wow really got it then. Back in time was written specifics. They wanted another song for the credits. And I by then I'd seen the film I hadn't seen it. And so I wrote that as you know specifically for that all right. So my Overriding question with regards to the Song Dynasty. I'm over there. So we we understand that that they they got the cameo in the movie based on your video acting and you you Hollywood good looks as quest left pointed attracted do man and you can correct me if I'm wrong but probably we got the the GIG for the songs because we were like the biggest band happening at that moment and and yes I guess marty fly would be fan but but there's something else going on there's something that makes you like super perfect and no song like it seems like the it's meshing away that's more than just a regular amash like it seems like interesting. That's very film but just like the combination of you and Michael J. Fox oxen whatever. It seems like it's perfect. You don't have a theory about that and I'm not I'm not It's interesting in that you know. Oh he said that he always credited you know power loved. The song was released before the film and they released a song and it went to number number one for nine weeks or something to get the number one and then they released the movie when power was number one and meccas already piece to this day we have a reunion sort of every five years and he says it was the best marketing. Come out ever you got a number one and the interesting being part about it is for me. Is that the fact that it had when I when I wrote the song when we wrote the song and and and I sent it to the Meccas. I didn't think it was going to work for them because there was no love. Object in the film by that point. I'd read the script at least I haven't seen it but I read the script and there was no. I didn't think it was going to work. But they used used it in the chase scene and I think and I've I've thought about this subsequently when when a song is is not a AH retell the story. It's it's an it's its own story and it only it only is relevant tangentially to the thing yes it it becomes another leg for that whole thing to stand on words. It's better to have a song that stands on its own. That's not exactly about the film. It's better for the film too because it gives us you get a good strong song out of it so many times we write songs just for the film. Tom and they're not dropping. It makes no sense but all of a sudden it makes perfect perfect sense to me. Learn three that one more from this episode plus Supreme. We didn't have any other one hundred eighty two. It almost seems so obvious that you just kind of ignore it because it just seems obvious. You said it can't be right right but you've proven that it's because it's another contract. It's another leg of that if you know what I mean. There's it makes perfect sense so if someone asks Qassam for a film now what would you do if I had already saw him for film now. Yeah well I'd probably do the same thing. Just write a song. He's right I mean we. We have a musical. That we're we're trying to get to Broadway. We we just put it up in San Diego and I. I wrote a new song for that and It was really Kinda Fun because it's really fun to write for other situations than your own right another voice. It's it's really creative and easy as opposed to writing for something that you want to say but speaking of musicals. How do you feel watching people taking your songs that they're they're more or less the same songs but in a totally different genre and watching what it? Hasn't you feel as a songwriter very interesting. Good question I I am. That's why that's why I engaged in this musical. A friend of mine long story they they they wrote the script and and And we got it all up and I'm just. I was worried about how the songs are to be handled. And so you know. I was very careful about that because this but our our musical director is a guy called brand USA for who worked on Kinky boots and a bunch of us. He's absolutely brilliant. He again went against I type with a song with song was like like you know Hit me like a hammer. which is a male he? He had girls girls girls sing it and all this some how they're handled is super important. And you gotta be careful with that because it can can be a little silly sometimes here so you do you worry about. Do you worry about that. 'cause I'm coming from. I just got back from two days ago but working on a jukebox musical of similar talk and you worry about songs that were totally masculine based or totally male based switching over or a song that was fast. I think that's a good. A good idea to be. Honest is totally avoid them. Zig when when when the original zagged seriously I learned from Lewis Zig fuck it goes egg. That's okay keep going. Sorry that's on the show. Utah infiltrate double gross the Mike. Okay so I know how how attached you were to based on your press the small world album right. Did you feel by the way rolling stones worst album of the year small world worst album of the year. I read the rolling stone. fucking shit. uh-huh did you. Did you feel as though it was like. Is there a fear of writing too high and you wonder okay is this overkill. Is this overkill. Is this over. You know honestly before you called you got me on. Four four was an economic thing. We just rush it out and tried to get it. Capitalize on momentum still hits their least but because we cover we left our but after that we honestly and even that even four to a certain extent I since that time I have never done anything for commercial reasons period. That's the deal I made with myself. I said look you you know you you gotta stay pure to. You're just do stuff the matters to you and that and then you can't go wrong. Just you know integrity. And so that's what small world was what we're trying to do expand and do some other stuff and the best part of that one. Is Stan Getz assault. Yeah I mean he killed that thing and that's kind of a funny story because my Dad Dad is a jazz are you know. And so zoot Sims died and so they had a tribute to him at at Kimble's thinker thinker. Somewhere in San Francisco right and wouldn't Kimble's was the old jazz club. I can't remember it but then house three sixty five. Yeah maybe maybe anyway my oh man loves all that stuff so I seek relief. I got tickets for him and I said pops I got two tickets for the for the zoot sims benefit stand Gad's and and all they had all these cats so now Jimmy Jones so now how we go and we may show me an I go in the. Oh My God you and my dad. You know he didn't know anything from me. He Ah the hard core jazz. He thought what I do is comic book stuff. You love the house though. Didn't he in the car. And now we go and we get the two seats and they put us down the right on the island. WHO's sitting right next next next to to where I'm sitting is Phil Ellwood the critic from the from the San Francisco Examiner? WHO's a jazz critic and my oh man knows all kinds of I mean he? Those Jimmie Lunceford stand. Okay knows every musician in chick. Webb's band mile. Man knows jazz and he loves it and so he sees Phil Phil Goes. Oh my God Huey Lewis and my man goes. Oh my God. That's Phil Ellwood. And he's recognized that who knows what might get it is so now he and Phil L. Witter talking and they're going about this and Jimmie Lunceford and this that and then I feel a tap on my shoulder and I turned turnaround. It's gets Oh. He's wearing his horn and he's tap. It's a the houses it's Kinda early. He's wearing his horn. And he taps me on the shoulder older and and and I look goes eight. You'll be Louis staying at. She says my girlfriend wants to eat your shorts. That is eight. Why don't you let me plan some your shit? What was he says? Oh you know what I can play that shit to know. Oh my Gosh Sure of of course you. Do you have a let me give you my card. You wrote on wrote Stan Getz wrote his phone number and put have sachs will travel and engage the car on the ride home. My Oh man says to me you know. He's got cancer and he's not going to be around very long. And if you don't take him up on that I I will never ever forgive you figure out a way to record man that house it. It's going what kind of data are you at this point with your dad given so much shit have been go to Europe and fuck off got to give stand gets on your record. That's a real statement that people say well you gotta get them on the next Girl and a boy my son withstand get in my head. Stan Getz is the most laid back cat ever because all playing things like that. Like staying gets on Huey Lewis Record. You be like Rockin you get to the Sax Solo and it'd be like that's his. That's how we get. We had to find out We find a song and Chris Hayes. Guitar Tarp Player wrote this little jam. I thought this would be great and I so we. We did a demo of it and I talked at first all around the world. There are people people like you and me For the Poor's beggar in the street to richest King and Queen while the Book De Things Waylon and I was just kind of talking against it. which is Kinda cool? I thought all right and then and then and that's all we had and we and I sent it to gets and he he he said great. I'll do it so we've made an appointment to do it. And then and meanwhile we put tower power on it we all the power horns on it and I sang it. Ice Sang it instead of spoke it so he comes up to do it at the session comes MHM studio. DDS drive he comes out he puts on gets his worn out he goes out and he starts pointing us. Oh my God. It's in C.. Sharp I mean it's it's it's out you'll see sharp for for for tenor right. You know yeah. Is it concert okay. So be concert really. Was it in concert. It's a whole step is ten. I was trying to play grown-up. I wonder if we were real. Whatever that's the things funny or something like that and you can't suck the and I said wow I didn't think of that what I guess we could train via so it or something he says really? What does that mean? I'd say. Well we could slow the deep down. You play okay. Let's try it so we tried to do that. And it sounded like kazue exist. Don't worry about I'll just do it. He says what I said. You sure. He's yeah it's just a challenge for super when you say that all the time now gets goes out and and he starts thing and Oh my God clearly he had shedded it and he was he was just fooling he. He had to shut it out because he played it. And and and what was amazing she starts his solo and he's playing along real nice and all and here comes tower. Power bump bump on it now but don't let it you know and I and the big one. They goes up now and so in his headphones. Eagle is. He's he's playing along but DVD dubiton. Bob and then then you're about I mean it was such a musical lesson watching him react to when stuff the busy he went low he got busy with the was. It was unbelievable watching him. Play one of the. I'm great experiences of my life. I mean those are the most polar opposite things I've ever heard of tower power and Stan Getz it's still and it was a seven minute track and I got the idea of splitting it up up. Make it at first and last cut which was a complete mistake. I should've kept because his solo on their which is part two is the best musical moment on that record by a long shot I mean wow it's just really cool. He just such a great player. I I just thought about something. We gotTA rapid upson. We have one more question. What do you mean? So you're the bus. No because I'm about to good move. Forgot Your Robert Altman film Sir. Are you going to move. No no I was like you know hacked down. You know what I'm saying like your before that Bullshit Louis Her Did you ever fuck with chromatic harp. Because you're such a diet tonic harp player. You're known for that like that. Always carrying like eight different harps and different keys and shit sorry all right sorry with chromatic arm. Yeah but I what I do is play secret. Matic in D minor third position. Why would you laughing at? That was because no one would do that. That's why it's interesting guy sometimes like it's okay. So here's what you know the average I'll explain this in front of Louis and I'll feel real fucked up about it but I'm trying. Yeah so so. A HARMONICA HAS BOBA holes in a specific key. And its diet. Tonic means scale. So it's like C or D or e or F so most so let's take for a bad example like John Popper of blues travelers carrying around eight hundred different harmonicas in different keys so they can play in different keys. A chromatic harmonica is like something that Steve underplays underplays which has a little button on sides can middle But you can always you can play all know their notes whereas the other ones are just eight notes although unless you're Howard Levi right unless you're wow that was cut unless you're Howard Levy a great great or toot toots and Leo. On the original awesome people go real deep anyway. Such a great music last so so so so huey is known as not a chromatic player but a guy who would would did you carry around a bunch of different unharvested. Yeah okay so so so He was the news tunes written a and e. and Sarin see minor. Like there's some weird shit so you'd have to adjust the harmonic. You're playing for the song you're playing so he would carry around. Tell me if I'm wrong. I'm GONNA tell he will lose his business while he's sitting right here that like he would play. He's had different harmonicas in different keys. He's and so if you have a chromatic are Monica the ideas that you only have one xactly now. You should talk but you have to be a much better player than I mean. You're put you know all you need is the chops to say what you need to say. And what is that. You want to say hats. Yeah and there's flog raw is what it really whatever I mean. You know. It's it's it's all creative. Yeah Dude Man man spirit. And I wouldn't mind being on Eh say that God all right wait I just WANNA get to two movies while we have a couple minutes left. Don't forget that guy. He's a miracle to because we have to get to that. Yes we'll get to that okay so with you you. How did you get the role in short? I'm such Robert Altman Fan. I forgot urine shortcuts. How did you get that role? Good looks quest love. What's he's amazing? Good looks his Hollywood. Good looks we I they I don't know how I got the I think it was. I think it was my my age Bill Robinson was agent and I think he was he was he was Albans agent and then he he he was a fan of mine and he said look. I'll be your agent and I said well I don't even agent do anything. Let me just be your agent. Just in cases where so then he he got the Gig the or the audition or whatever whatever it was and so what I did is I went out to Santa Monica and just talked to Robert Altman and he he invited me and he sat me down. He said Do you you're you you've fishermen ride you F- we fly. Fish said yeah he's cool. He's a look Matt. Let me give you a scenario. Says two guys three guys are going go on a fishing trip. He says and they go on a fishing trip and they've been worried about it for like a year. They've been planning for this trip. It's a big deal. And they they got a pack in all the the pack in all the way and they get in there in the evening and they set up camp and one of the guy goes to take a leak. I was GONNA say he goes to take a leak in the river and sees a dead dead body right he says. What are you going to do? He says meanwhile the Fisher rising like crazy. And it's nighttime. What are you GONNA do? I said probably fish. I'd seen sure wasn't that full-frontal who remember one you taking a Piss me was it full-frontal full-frontal how good for yes. Only only some very unusual. That's right you definitely have to face the cameras are you serious. Did Not know. She's getting report anyway but he would do it and as favourite the you know I was telling him earlier that you were the only reason that I saw duets. I was I was a big huge fan sweet. Yeah Yeah 'cause I was like he was going to be the star of a whole movie bucket because I was your I biggest own right. How how did you? How did the same thing I read? Ed For the part with with Bruce. Paltrow you know when this dad directed it right and then they. They apparently tried to make it earlier with. But they couldn't find the right Ricky Dean. So with Huey Lewis. And so they've the agape he You know cast me and they said we want you to sing a song. I say great. He says the song in the script was Song Song Few Leon Russell and and they she's going to change the song. It's no problem so now I get the part. We're going the film it in Vancouver in like five months but I get a call. That Gwen is chosen the song Cruising just chosen the song smokey Robinson. I went great which Smi rum's do cruising never i. I didn't know I didn't know the song right so I said we'll send it to me and we'll check it out. They sent it to me and said Okay I got it let's I call the maggots. It sounds great. Let's let's get together around a piano and Picky Ono. We already cut got it really another. We are the world's key to cut it in. They said original. I said okay so I listened to it and it's super high fashion this other part together and then we went down there. And now we get into the studio Glenn at the me and forty five other people with camera people and then record goes and Larry Klein produced it and he did did a great job and she just sanger but off man. She can really sing that girl. I and we heard it. We surprising number one. Yeah Yeah you know what they did is they met on the film they should have done. Is The power power love release. It then released the movie. They released the movie in the song at the same time and the movie went right and then two months later the song was number one right so his cruise indebted India Angelo's cruiser there. So that's very okay. It's Great Simpson's placement. So he's cool he did. Yeah Yeah when I think like margin homer riding around the car cruising is on the radio really. How do you know that it's the simpsons? Okay it makes sense so okay I do. I do have to ask you With with having trouble with your you're hearing right now. When was the beginning of you? This is weird because I just got my ears cleaned out today. How does that happen for was it just years of Abuse on your eardrums or the answers. They don't know Recent right this is the last year and change. It's not like year nine months nine months diagnosed with some common years disease. It's I for me. It started thirty five years ago. I got vertigo so bad I couldn't do a gate when time had to go to the hospital. And then they gave me a thorazine suppository then I was fine and then five years as leader had another vertigo bout. Then suddenly I lost my hearing in my right ear like maybe twenty five years ago. Twenty years ago went to see my. EMT ACES ACES get used to it. I said what does it happens. We need one ear warning. I'm a musician who said Jimi Hendrix had one ear. Wait what Brian Wilson is. It had one he says I have one ear and I'm in a barbershop quartet. You only need one. I said all right so I went home. Tom told my wife that I said get used to it. You can't do that. You gotta can go to. UCSF second. I went and got tested up and down. Nobody knows does anything about this so now a year and nine months ago I lost my other before a Gig just went deaf and I have a particularly acute in case of manures disease. Many years disease is a is a syndrome based on symptoms which means they really don't know what it is it's You know if you have vertigo hearing loss fullness in your ears antennas they call it many years disease but they don't know what it is. I've been everywhere from Stanford Air Institute House Ear Institute Mayo Clinic. UCSF F- mass general. Ain't here no help. I've Chiropractic of had Acupuncture Fed low salt organic diet. No Caffeine Caffeine no chocolate essential oils. You know I've tried everything into the bid to all the holistically. I've nobody knows it and yet. My hearing fluctuates fluctuates. Still but it's episodic it's weird it'll be okay for like for eight days it'll case still crappy but it's and then I'll then I'll go a week almost completely deaf almost entirely death. What is that like especially when music is your for the forget music? I don't even think about music. It's worse than that. I think about being able to exist because when I can't hear speech when bad right now one to ten four. I've only been as good as six ever and and I'm a four which is good but I can be one or one and a half one and a half or two. I can't hear anything and so I I in a cocoon and it's it's it's it's okay but I am. You're better off by yourself. So there's nobody not to here and I read and I write. You know I'm writing some stuff and and that's all it's that's what I do. I haven't watched television a year and nine months Ivy League. I haven't listened to music can in almost two years who the performance they must be clearly issue then but like. When you're at like a six I was? I was watching your the teaser. For your documentary is a singing versus harp. Playing can't sit because because of the Buzzer the vibrations of the harp. Can you feel it in your head. Versus singing is different. The same and in fact instrument playing an instrument in many ways like Harmonkha is almost worse. Because you know when you bend to note you need pitch and you can't find pitch when when I have a base part. which would sound Bo Bo Bo? Bobo goes does to me itself. That's coming through a blown speaker. I'm interested in and you have to fight for pitch. You can't find pitch. Forget fun on. You don't like it is fun. You're in the middle of playing itself singing or playing and it's playing itself at. That never happens once. If I'm a six in somebody plays quiet cocktail piano kind of thing. I can almost sing. But but the point smoot because I can't book Gig Big. They don't know what I'm GonNa be like Shit. Wow that's you're casting you all right you got. That done wasn't tell good to make that happen right as you got a brand new record and you got that done good we this. These were seven tunes on our new record. We'd cut before this happened. And what I I. We were just taking her own sweet time. We're doing seventy five eighty shows a year and trying to stay out of the limelight while we make another record just keeping everybody alive fingered the longer we stay away the better. If we're good when we come back and my band we were as good as we've ever been two years ago we're still improving and But now that this happened you know we. We figured what we were recording songs along with some of these songs we've been playing for ten years you know but we record them a little bit as we went because we have lives as well you know in doing seventy five shows. You don't have a lot of time to get in the studio but we have these seven thongs done so now when this happened we said what the hell it's releases so while it was going to say. Are you big on vacations. But I guess living in Montana that sort of like. You're you're quiet police. You're I mean now. How does it feel the slowdown in Jason? Well you know I miss.

Brian S Arnold. We are back on the virtual state of the Authority projects. You are the project and we WANNA slept with thirty two your name so you can sell what you're great at in. We have a treat for you today and his name is Sean Hopper. He is a former. Nfl Player. I loved the failed love football all day every day. Like I said we can probably talk about that for an hour. But we're not here for that. We're here to to make sure that you finish off strong in twenty twenty but before we dive in. Please tell US Shawn first of all who you are personally and professionally personally. Shaun Harper personally a warrior. I'm a child of God. I don't hide that. I think that often is huge. And so what? I'll just you know go there you know speaking with. Your Voice of WHO? You are mentally spiritually socially is is is extremely important if you WANNA win in two thousand twenty and end in two thousand twenty one Born raised in the south side of Columbus Ohio Had had had a very interesting childhood. But I've learned how to rebrand my adversity By looking for opportunities in looking at it from a perspective of gratitude professionally like you mentioned plate seven years professional football with the rams with the colts retired. And now I Not only run. I have my own firm for almost twenty years. I teach people how to win. That's me I love it awesome. I am so excited So tell us right now before we go further in. Tell us what project. You're currently working on right now. We know what right yes short. I just finished my first Coaching course it's it's it's actually finished. It's so new that I'm not even gonNA advertise today. A Shaun Harper wins. Probably some time next week. It'll be up but I am so excited about that in house actually challenged because you know I cut my teeth on speaking so I travel in speak all over the world and people have been challenging me like you know what this great. You're able to speak great. You have a platform but you know what when you leave. You're gone you know where the books so I hadn't heard him get books like where's your courses and so I had my first course finishing s what. I'm working on right now. Okay great okay. So let's let's get into it. Let's get into it. Tell us where do you begin? Tell us your journey like what took it to this place where you're in the space of being on stage. You're doing courses now. You're you're writing books to inspire others the that all Derived FROM OKAY. So in order for you to For me to really explain that I have to give a little back story of my personal life of my upbringing. In a kind of forced a shift in my perspective ideology and my thinking born born and raised in the south side of Columbus Ohio. And most people think you know if you play professional football your business owner you must have had great opportunities growing up silver spoon in the mouth and you know nothing. Nothing I promise you. Nothing could be further than the truth. I struggle started early a as a a product of a single home environment. Mom was mom and Dad End in Butler made whatever you have as what she wasn't. She raised six of us all by herself. Amazing six kids. One house bathroom Mom did that. She's she's a remarkable woman Educationally I really suffered a had to repeat the first grade document with four to five learning disabilities by ten miles in the fifth grade. I was kicked out of two schools for disciplinary issues Left Highschool with the one point. Six two accumulative Jeff. Nine Alesi T. A. in fact I didn't even start in a well. I barely started in high school football. I wasn't honorable. Mention all conference all city allstate or intergalactic. None of that in fact I would. I would sit at the banquets now. The other way in the back eating at nasty court on blue and guys are getting into audience. Awards and I was just so upset. I wouldn't I wouldn't tell no one but I was extremely depressed. Angry in in fact. I was voted most likely to fail in. Know right here From graduating last in my class in academics I get a phone call from junior college two year school in Iowa. And you're like Sean. We want you to come to Mason City Iowa. Junior college to play football coach. Believes you have this thing called potential. You know what a that and a I go to the Cornfield. The cornfields of Mason City Iowa in the first year at the junior college. I sat the bench the entire season. Not One play and I remember calling my mom like mom I quit. You know I give up. I'm done know know I'm I'm expecting Montlake. Baby you try come on home the opposite boy state you. You Ain't coming home like what are you coming home to get violent. Just just things in home. No don't get stale way and sometimes that shift is good for kids and so going into the second year. I had a conversation with myself and the conversation was more on the lines of you're right or they're right. You don't have the education. You don't have the accusation. You horwood football you suck right now. Okay There's no way you can be successful right but you can win. You can win and the moment I made that paradigm that shift in my mind you can win. I begin to look at life differently. A beginning look at life as a challenge to begin to look at opportunities that I've never seen like I begin to macgyver. Life right and I went from sitting on a bench with the winning mindset that I was able to adapt if you want to expand on that to being you know junior college hall of Fame All Region Full Scholarship Indiana University draft any. Nfl Pick in fourth run to taking the same concept of winning and bringing bringing it to corporate America. Unbelievable unbelievable okay. So so all of that with all that back backdrop. Tell us we're tell us where this title lane to win. Where's that what does that mean to us? What that means is that in my opinion. This is just my opinion. I believe that success is for Suckers Kaz. Success is a man made concept. You weren't created to be successful. You are created to win with the first thing that they did is. They changed the title from winning to success. Now that they've changed the name they can. They rebranded it now. They can define what it is. And now you're chasing you are chasing this bank called success when you're meant to be successful and there's a lot of depresses I'm sorry depression in your pursuit of success. A lot of energy in your pursuit poverties in your pursue could. You're spending all your time energy and money impressing people now. I know I have a lot of naysayers right that. You know Sean Crazy. So let me just say Talk a little bit about that. Why is it that you mentioned football? Why is it that By the way what's your favorite team Patriots New England Patriots. What the New England Patriots? Okay so let's say that the New England Patriots. This could be a real life example. Let's lost every game for the next five years. Now you remember with the stadium was like in how you could not get a ticket when Brady was in New England right announced imagine the Patriots lost every game for the next five years. Okay you could probably go down to the stadium. Pick up a ticket for a scout under calls in walk into that stadium if they win every single game in cam gets his act together. The team gets on point. They win every single game for the next five years. The governor will be hard pressed to get a ticket to seem the Patriots. I think about that. Why is that because from a cellular level our DNA? We are attracted to winning okay. Gambling is a multi billion dollar industry. Why is gambling a multi-billion dollar when I fly to Vegas people sitting at them slots all day successful? They're going to win gaming kids. Play these video games like the parents get mad at. The kids know it's tapped into its tapped into the dopamine release is tapped into who they are they are attracted to winning like a moth is to light. Think about this for a second if anyone's hearing me right now you're a one the two the two to three million sperm cells that fertilized egg. Now they talk about that. Motivational speakers mentioned that but really think about. They were pursuing. They weren't trying to be successful. They didn't have their business cards on the way they were trying to win. Data around the third or fourth grade. They introduced a new concept to you about the time you realize Santa Claus Ain't real. They introduced This this concept you called success. The problem with success is that success is not static which means that you could be New England New York and have four million dollars. You I you take that four million dollars to downtown Manhattan You take that same four million dollars to buy you poke now so now. Success is not static. You're never satisfied. You're never content. How many people you know who are just content. Yeah Yeah Body. Yeah so when you live your life from an actual winning perspective now when you speak your actions everything the your your your your entire being is moving not just not just the intellect in your will love it. That's great. I've never heard that before. I liked that the win. I got it. I got it already. So so what do you feel are the biggest things holding people back when you know just like just like in any football game when you're the when when when the momentum when you had the momentum when you don't when is a lot of it is mental so what do you think is holding people back when they don't it when they don't see it yet when they don't see There so let me say this came when when when they have dreams the days the months even maybe the years go by in it's not yet realized and they feel like maybe these are the cards. I'm dealt okay. So one one of one of the main struggles with success is that they not only tell you where to go. They tell you how to get there and then when you don't get there they don't have an answer for it so on the success model. It's sorry it's great education great network you went to mit while Blah. And so we're going to force the whole student. Loan thing down your throat and you're gonNA work real hard. If you do all these things then you'll be successful. You know what raise your hand out there if you followed all the rules if you did everything just right look at your life like you know what? I'm not there so so when you jump on a winning platform the only thing that they give you a lot of times are the laws are the rules of the game. That's it. He's the rules now. You do what you have to do. You do whatever comes to you. You think outside the box you focus on teamwork and that's one of the biggest gyms in. Winning is winning forces collaboration and teamwork. Now think about this for second. You know you can really win at life. If you have a team how come teamwork was never taught the only time they really teach teamwork is in sports. Obviously and when you go in you after you get out of graduate school I mean after you get out of your going for your Ma- your Your your your bachelors. Then you go for your masters. Don't even teach teamwork then a collaboration. And so they have little groups and they will not pay your eighty-five grand. Then you know whatever grade the group gets you get okay but why? Why are they teaching that? Because they're teaching you how to collaborate but they're not teaching you how to create a team win with the team managed team. They're not teaching you that that's for the Big Boys. That's the that that's that's basically hidden knowledge. So think about this for a second think of some of the greatest people in the world in reference to finances when you think of Bill Gates. They're like wow. He's in the top five richest men in the world but guess what if I asked her audience. Who WAS BILL GATES? Business Partner. His teammate half of the people over half would not know who that person was. He's dead it was pilot. No-one talks about Paul Allen he'll Let's say when the richest Man Award again? Let's say Warren Buffett Warren Buffett. Warren Buffett will if you attend a his shareholders meetings once a year to the left. There's another guy his partner. His name is Charlie Charlie has been with him for. I'll know three forty fifty spy side though entire time. Nobody talks about Charlie. You talk about musically wise. You know lemming. I love music so your audience could remember Paul Simon and Garfunkel in. We talked about Paul Simon. No one talks about Garfunkel everyone talks about Mick Jagger known talks about Keith. Richards is always always tim. Your Win Your your success or your winning life is based off not only your talent but the team that you build and manage and maintain think about prints James Brown. You know. Who's who is Fred. Wesley makes your Parker. I can go on and on about this. I love it. That's great stuff man so I just want tag onto that like we have a lot of. Selah preneurs on the on Who listen to this show A lot of coaches who are like just just them just solo so in this searching it. That's one of the go and a team to get get. How do you first of all the importance of having a team? The portions of hang around you to make you better so I in the fifth grade. I was documented with four to five disabilities. And they were going to put me in special led by Blah snus ness and my mom bless her heart. She stood up Issue slammed her hand down. She said no. You will not label my son. She was adamant about that end. She forced me. She forced me in. We struggled all the way through. But what did that it? It actually also forced me to look outside of myself answers so I had a me type my paper. I had somebody else you study. Somebody help me do this. I it was just crazy so I learned that the hard way the importance of team it is everything you have to have a tape and you know what a lot of times right? It's right in front of us but we don't even focus on. Let me give you an example Scooby Doo right like like I could listen it. It was a team. Yeah look at the superheroes in the there again team development team work Ainhoa. So funny is that you never hear. I have never heard a superhero complain about his weakness. I have never heard of somebody else. Criticizing Superhero for his or her weakness. Superman doesn't say oh my God like Kryptonite. I have disability. He Commits Dino. He'll be stuck if all he focused on was his weakness man. I needed to go there and put that in a bucket and once you do tell me because I'm GonNa take over everything you have to have team in. Does that team might one of my questions is how important is for people to push you. That team A compliment but also dare to help help you inspire you go further mentally ill right so this is not a shameless plug. Right Black. Just finished book about about a month ago knows because outright I got to fight Li- I talk about the five elements you have to have to really achieve your goals. And one of them is a coach. You have to have an end. The reason why you have to have a coach is that you have to have somebody to push you into the to twelve and what I mean by that is that water is water at two hundred eleven degrees. If you add a little bit of fire that water it goes to two hundred and twelve degrees. Once water goes to twelve degrees. Water Boils in water has changed the world but everyone wants to stay in the to eleven now. The secret to that is at a coach has the ability he or she to push you into twelve. The coach is not impressed with the coaches. Like you know what? That's great anyone's Clapham what you can do better. There's more into withdraw out of you. The coach has has been called the pull the king out of the Kid. The coach says you know what? I'm I'm GonNa push you asked you because you're natural. Your Natural Defense mechanisms will kick in and will we'll bring you back but a coach will see that and take you to the next level. I love it I love it. So let's let's talk about this evening that you're saying the great wonderful sounds great How does one start to believe in themselves on a consistent basis because sometimes it's hard you see yourself year next as that's great productions down and you down here okay so which you okay and you know I might? I might get in trouble with in a motivational. Speaking them. You know I talked to a Lotta To allow the motivational speakers. A lot of success go just yes know none of us. None of us is like that. We are human where HUMORING WE HAVE OUR INSECURITIES. We have our fears. And you know I'm upset at the industry because we don't share that you know that's now we create this this this superman affects. It's not right it's like I know some speakers who are right now as we speak 'cause I talked to a lot of them. I talked to some big names right now. They are in full fledged depression. The toe so it's not that we don't experience that the the real challenge is what do you do win. You experienced that and one of the things that I do is that I start to take the focus off myself. But I'm like you know I'm not where I needed to be in this. This is not happening. And I haven't taken over the known world yet. You know they will so so now. I turn that inflow 'cause I'm sobbing in my sorrows into an outflow so I start to so in the people's lives. I started to give or one of the things I do. Which is amazing. I go onto facebook and I pull up like twenty people people I barely know and like you know what all's going to be well with people that I do know what you're awesome you know what you're great. I start pouring out I started enforcing I I. I actually turned the engine or the energy outward now it does two things one it takes the focus off yourself number two activation law. Okay and I'm big. I'm big on spiritual law the more you put out the more that comes in. It doesn't come to. You doesn't stick with you if it can't get through you and so I have to turn the inflow in Terni engine around the air around and make it out slow and sometimes it comes naturally. Sometimes you gotTA gotTa kick start that day. Yeah so this is a question that I might be asking more more often. I think people are interested in. What is your daily routine? Wow so I have a very interesting routine. I'm Tom I get up sometimes. Three or four o'clock in the morning. Okay in up and I try to go into prayer and I try to pray then I used to try because sometimes I'm not all that successful or I don't win at it. Sometimes but I pray you know and I started out that way because I speak in. I declare into the atmosphere. You know everything that is already is okay. And I'm sorry everything that is already is in the spirit so speaking of Spirit. I speak my destiny. Speak my purpose. I government life know. Sometimes I have to repent. Sometimes I have to apologize. You know but I you know I I get rekindled. Get centered spiritually. I now from the inside spiritually than physically and so I tried to get to the gym around From there around four thirty five o'clock in the morning at lifetime fitness I'm working out I'm walking and then I start plotting because I'm an owner of a boss and so together as this together so I'm like you know what is needs to be done. This needs to be done this needs to be done this needs to be done and then and then I also at that time. Connect with my virtual assistance awesome awesome. Okay so they go there by has the routine. I might have been doing that more often. I watch one of your videos. You talked about the thing about being victim you can you go into that a little bit. A bit that the The aspects of not being victim. Why you should not be that yet. That being being being victim so dangerous because number one because LEKRA mentioned earlier being victimised inflow. Okay Matt a book. It's like it's like pour me this. I mean this is where I'm at is how I feel. Bob You have just valid listened listened. Listen you have just validated your position. Where you're at this is. This is how I feel. This is where on Matt. This is what you've done to me. You have validated your position. Where you're at. There's no motion there. Okay so victims. Always focused on what they're going through. Not what they're going to so avigdor now looks at his position but he looks outward. Whenever you focus on your manifest change your focus change your life and so now like Viktor says this is where I'm at but this is where I'm going in the same sentence this is Matt Comma or conjunction. But this is where I'm going and that's now they're focused on. That's where they're going when you play football you know In this time play your archrival you go in there. The coaches like hey this just objective win the game. This only and everyone is locked into that. Everyone is pushed into. That was flowing into that. Win is very important when you begin to look at your scratches and bruises man you lose Focus Yeah I. I'm not sure who I heard from way back when it kind of stuck with me. The same thing. You're saying that when you're watching a story of movie your film. Nobody likes the victim. You might play by play it but no one wants to. No one wants to see you stay in the victim state. You can be there but they want you to succeed. They want to come. And be the victor eventually so so. I think that's a great point that you that you think 'cause also projects to the people you're trying to serve so you're still you're just in the state you're still saying what was me that gives that rubs off on the people that you're trying to serve to like okay. Well if he can't do it maybe there's no spiritual momentum this momentum and you have to have that momentum that is a big word as a big were going into two thousand twenty one right now is is how do you build your momentum because between two thousand and two thousand twenty one is just today is just day on on a dad won't calendar and if you're not prepared now if you're not preparing now and building the momentum now than going into January just going to be day January versus day okay. Eat some black. Ip's it's the New Year in no now. You need to build momentum now bilger momentum now for two thousand twenty watch it I love it. And that's great. People are seeing seeing. You hear the love what you're saying but you what what. What does people are saying? You know what year Sean. But you've been in the NFL. Of course you're already position to do. Great things in this space you you've already gone to the disciplinary stuff. You got coaches. So you're already you're already there are already. You know you've had that exposure so of course you're going to succeed like people. What are people you know? Never did sports or whatever had those kind of kind of opportunities and so forth. Come on you know so well first of all listen if life is a game you play to win either you playing a game or you being played by the game okay but the game is still going on second of all would give credibility to what I'm saying is that you saw you saw where I came from. There was nothing there you know. The point zero two percent of any athlete makes it to the NFL for one year. One year okay and I came from you know being know all nothing to playing in the NFL. That's number one number. Two was able to not only do it in the professional ranks which I had the physical size. I'm challenge way right now. Just pray for well not only you know not only excelling as far as the NFL. You know I've been a business owner since nineteen ninety eight. Okay so which like to you know. I don't know ninety eight two thousand eight at last tour s over twenty years of grinding it which the average business last four Well you know. Ninety percent of businesses or eighty five percent of businesses fail within the first five years. So I've already beat those arts. In the profit margin that was generated. Revenue was generated I've already beat those odds been married for twenty one years already. Beat those odds so doubt so so so. So there's something I'm doing right in listened to me not based off of ability alone. Okay because athleticism great. That's for the football. But what about Him Business? Will you saw right? Came from making it in business. Okay were they okay with what about what about relationships we pay you know what? That's a totally different field. Okay so then. What is it that you're doing different? Yeah so I want to get into this. Nobody I want to get into this whole Bingham umbrella. We're in this pandemic right when the world of trying to get past this this virus thing we have social unrest right now. We have many conversations about diversity in organizations and in just equality in general. Then you have your because of the pandemic stages are empty. The Um the the the the money flow that you that you were going to have this year is not the kid on stage is you. Can't do your your your summers near everything else. So everything is out of whack. How how do we get past this? So that 'cause like from from clients and it's like the like. I'm sorry Brian posted on supposed to have specialized way. I'm just like just in this. This year's is going crazy right now for me. So how how do you? How do you work that in when people which is everything is still in your face you know the the politics and the social media is just? How do you stay focused? They're all this. No it's fine. It's it's this is something that I can lean on as far as the. Nfl is concerned. Imagine you're in the stadium in Indianapolis Colts play the New England patriots? Yeah and I'm playing and it's cold outside. It's very code as like you know really Super Super Super Code outside and I'm playing in the opposite team is yelling at you in a talking about your Momma and every thing possible that In in your trained in all of that to listen for the count and listen for the play. Costa quarterback can change to play and the snap. Count so I'm saying that that in this environment you have to shut off everything you got to step back from the politics you have to step back from the social you got step back and you got to watch and you gotta listen you gotTa to Withdraw Yourself Unto Yourself and you have to look and to listen and to learn because right now there are opportunities in this pandemic that can make somebody a billionaire. Women give you an example like we're not using zoom as a platform but go ahead. I challenge you. I challenge anyone listening to me right now. Pull up a six month chart on zoom. Pull up a six month chart on. Let's say not only zoom another Square pull up a six. I mean these stocks are going to yes. There are people wealth is most wealth is created in paradigm shifts in Nineteen Ninety Ninety one. The computer was introduced for the first time for public use. In that moment companies blew up. They did not ever going to blow up in Moment companies failed like the post office is about to fail because of that paradigm that happen in Nineteen Ninety. Nine eleven appeared on him. This virus is a paradigm commercial. Real estate is in trouble at the same time. There's other opportunities that are blowing up. You have to look for yourself back in look for the opportunities. Retool reposition yourself. I love it. Learn how to pivot a lot of people. Getting some people aren't getting it but but but but in order in order to pivot you have to get in position so when you dribbling the ball and it's time to pill it you just don't stand up and go. Oh no you get in position now you can shift but if you're still up here thinking we're going to go back to normal is going to be the way that it wh- it will never be the same way again. It's overran game over I. I lost eighty ninety percent of all my engagements within two days. They were gone. But guess what I now had. You know up the technology. Got Cam here. I got a brand new microphone here. A meeting you for the First Time. I had to make switch right right right. So what do you say to the people who don't want to switch can make that switch and they feel like it's going it's going to get back to where they were because 'cause a lot of times presses comes get back to where we were? Why is this so different now? You think well because it has attacked the fiber of our being it has attacked the psychological mindset of America what made or made America so strong and powerful as we always ourselves winners. We don't want to admit it but we're kind of arrogant especially when you go overseas like wide like America. That drag on blue passport is powerful. This right here is kind of this kind of broke us a little bit kind of broken. Everybody this is I mean I have people from our world who guest here. It's kind of broken globally. Broken as a whole another data it's done. Is that zeal in that drive to win in us as Americans is been broken? It's it is it is being Is being chipped away at like a mentioned I own a security firm that you would think that people would be you know winding up for jobs. Enough talked to other people in in the industry And other industries we can't find workers And it's like I would much rather get a check unemployment check than the work. What is doing to your psyche. I've seen what it's done to. Millions of African Americans and I WANNA get super political but to break that in them that desire to go out in achieve of seen that stripped out of us because of the handouts and. I'm not conservative. I'm not a Liberal Democrat. I'm not a Republican because I don't play those games. I'm just a realist. In looking at it happened on a massive scale now some amazing so I have a credible stuff man. Amazing stuff right now. I had really just one last question for you. Forget here and it goes up ex. All exits question out of all of my guest. Okay got something like this. They like what you're saying. They actually love what you're saying. They want to do something similar. Similar things some of the similar similar interests. They want to go down. Some of the same path that you've gone through In THEY WANNA MAKE THEY WANNA get on stages like you. They want to create a place where they inspire others. Can you give them a few tips words of wisdom or just some steps in showing them how to be an authority in this space that you're now well first thing is is that you have to find your win like I'll give you an example. I speak you. Don't want me to write. I promise you you don't want me to spell my name okay. So bad look as a writing is not my win so I have you know I have people who like right helped me you know but so mine is. I'm a natural motivator. My Amazing Wife. She is so amazing. But she's not a motivator. She's a teacher getting and so she could talk for three hours in powerpoint. Lectures there are people who just loved that like. Oh my God you taught so well you know his teacher. Her mom is a professor. Dad is a professor. She's a teacher that's who she is naturally so everyone has a natural bent to help in the so when other people's life now if you WanNa make this a craft if you to say this is going to be Mike Craft and this is how I'm GonNa live and I've dedicated my life to Lis- within that's a different story so different question and it's a different challenge because in order for you to make this your craft get noticed in authority in this you have to cause create a disruption. You have to. What is when you remember the movie the Matrix? What is the lady in the Red Dress? What is the disruption? That's GONNA MAKE YOU STOPPING A. Wow why should I listen to? You like man like winning. That's that is that is a disruption. Okay and so went once you have that in. You introduced that now people like why should I listen to you? Oh I see why now because this is something new. This is something powerful at guiding. Trevor Get's toffee that him in a guy named shave around. Yeah so Create a disruption in the marketplace. And you will cause it inflow into your world I love it. S amazing stuff man. Amazing staff and final words. I think my only question now is the sound. How do you think the codes are going to going to do this year? That's a loaded question. I think we're GONNA do great. I don't know I don't you know the NFL is. I mean it's like okay is a means like man you know from one week to the next year you lose a Prescott for the cowboys and you know you lose one person you know like you know. It's it's really. It's really tough because you can't don't know who's going to be healthy from week to week is a hybrid season. You're going to see more injuries in uh the process has been interrupted disrupted so honestly. I I don't know I don't know we'll let me ask you a question were me. I'm going sorry I know you to host the Patriots just going to issue. I didn't have many expectations okay. I think we're lucky to even have cam to be honest. Imagine if we didn't even get pickup. We have no weapons and that's going to be a no. That's going to catch up to us and I think it's catching up to us now. So that's the Patriots. I I see I see bad intentions next two weeks and I don't know what though Cam has enough years that you can if you stopped running all the time he has enough years that you can build on Cam and the Patriots in. Oh Wow Bella. Check is a genius number one and number two. They draft very well. I don't know what I don't know how to find them but they can find a diamond in the rough you know. They they draft well so if cam can stick around for a couple more years. You're looking at a championship team. Deshea thing is I don't know but in drafting very well. I think I should have got to receive last year last year. I'm a big draft nut. Because maybe they're like on a two or three year plan. You gotta understand you know like I mean you know what we know. Let's let's create a foundation. How many years you think cam has left for years right. So guess what. We're going to not only get to a championship in four years. We're going to draft our type of quarterback within those four years. Right keep going to keep the fans happy for this. This is great stuff. This is football talk but if you really listening between the lines this is actually really business targets. Will this lifetime yes? It takes us a while. I L it takes a while to put everything together. The pieces together. He's the right tools and you start off with saying you know what I don't know but you know what we stood up. Play the game. We don't we don't know where it's going. GonNa end up going to right now. Take cocktail takes so you could could emphasize Just my website Shaun Harper Dot. Org Free Copy of my book the Winning Edge Shaun Harper Dot. Co My selfish selfish plug. It went instagram. Shannon Harper Speaker. That good answer and like my stuff because my ego I want they have ballers yet if everybody was honest want hours. Yes people saying that you know the reason. Why in the reason?

#8 - BEER - Jeremy McGrath
"Hello everybody and welcome back to because everybody enjoys roadrunners. We have a very special road. Runner dirt runner four wheels. Two wheels special guests here with us. Today he is a legend. His nickname is showtime for multiple reasons. Because he knows win To shine and he does just that he is a seven time supercross champion and just an all around good dude a father husband just a fun cat joys Tequila and loves playing Ping Pong and sting ball at the same time. We've had some good times in Utah. We have mutual friends and he is here with us and you know Showtime Mc and he is Jeremy McGrath. Jeremy is joining us from his home in San Diego California Jerry. What's up homeboy man? There he said nothing exactly so to give this kind of preface. We are under quarantine times. But let's get right to it. What are you doing to occupy your time? You're talking about might. This might take about an but he said if we can't let's condense it because they do have someplace to go which is socially responsible which is social distancing but seems like you been still keeping busy. You GotTa stay top your game well. It's funny you know I mean the. There's let's talk about the few things that have gotten better with this right. Traffic's gotten better air. Pollution gotten better than bonding with the family's gotten better I LIFE. I don't know sometimes I wanNA kill my kids. Well no I mean okay. We're we're a month into this thing now. Okay maybe now little bit or or you're like okay I'm GONNA go now or whatever but I'm I'm really enjoying hanging out with my kids. The the no school thing with the kids. It's kind of weird really so we've kind of had to become a little bit of like a home school teacher a little bit at least try to put them on some sort of schedule but You know it's terrible. It's terrible things going on and we're GONNA get through it for sure but at the same time I'm just super fortunate. I've been been able to ride my bicycle and get out and and No one's GonNa be twenty two. Let's go yeah and like we said you are get on your bicycle. You're even go into the open desert. You're getting out there. You're riding side by side. You're part of the team and have been for quite a few years in embassador for them. You've read you've read many different motorcycles. Your over your different years of competing and and both outdoor and supercross and all that and we'll get to that in a moment but that's what I really love about you when I first met you can block introduced us. We in Park City we for new years and I just love how how humble you were. Let's be quite honest when you started young. You didn't really have that humility. You're you're I mean. Have you always been humble guy because I understand that like you got it? You got to kind of you know you're showtime you have to bring like when you're when you're in competition you're all about winning and that's it and kind of go for it right. I mean I think I think it was. I was always been like a shy kid right so always in. Kinda you know. Listen I think there's a fine line between arrogance and You know I can get confidence right so areas contra quite a bit different The showtime thing. It's funny because when I was a junior like when I was fourteen years old now the novice ride motocross supercross track in the backyard. That had home bill. My Dad helped me build it and it was right behind the house and always had a somewhat of affects Jack and I always showing off on our parents so my dad's nickname showtime because I mean I was show that was Sean Hopper audience. Three my mom my dad and my sister and You know it's kind of it's kind of funny that way because it's like there was no one a show off for now you later when I became a professional and you know years later and and started doing that trying to the fan You know I just took out a way to express myself. I mean I'm I'm not allowed. Guy I don't you know I would say that I'm confident. I like to seal You know the power of being well trained and being ready to raise and Kinda like feeling like feeling over your your competitors but I have always been pretty humble but the two definitely shown up and I guess I just let my writing speak for myself instead of me and out of my mouth. There's a lot of people that what's funny is shyness. And your lack of maybe communication. When you were younger could be confused as arrogance or didn't like somebody right so there's a fine line between cockiness confidence and you having you know your parents as your number one fans that then translates into this into that and then you carry that into you know coming and becoming you know champion and multiple multiple nights like Dang target on your back and you got to become a little calloused right. I mean and then just growing up and being a father then then your heart starts to soften and you've been pretty open about it. Kim's journey with with cancer and and your guys openness. I think that really humbles you. You're not born immortal. You are mortal you and your family. I mean you guys you guys you. You've been blessed with this opportunity and Kim along your side your wife and now your girls and and all this opportunity so out humbles you real quick. Yeah you know it's funny you hard enough as Nazi so as an athlete. You're like okay You know I gotta be ready to beat someone's ass on the weekends and and everything I'm doing. Every day of the week is like all leading up to that Saturday night. Main event you know so there are things that you learn as an athlete that to. Kinda hard up you know and that that's just trying to have a competitor but certainly when I was young I didn't have it. I was super bowl lot of talent. I was pretty darn lazy to be honest and I'm dealing with that now apparent because one of my daughters was a lot like cheese. She loves sports. She's good at it but she's really she's really she's really good she's really lazy so I I just I'm like I'm like you're you're just like I was and it. It honestly took me until I was like twenty. Probably Twenty three years old to figure out like them. My Dad was actually right in saying like. Hey you need to work. You're off to you know because these other guys are working their butts off and I was like. Yeah Yeah I got it. I got it now as well. You know in order to become a mark champion out for motocross champion. Which me was way harder to supercross. I had to get my button year. Learn how to be an adult and learn how to train and do all these things that you know you hoppy responsible for and it took me talk like probably twenty three twenty four years old to really adjust my mind and put my mind in the right space to commit to that and So you're right as you get older you know parent Certainly with the situation with my wife. She's dealt with breast cancer and then through the Chemo therapy with that. She got the. She hadn't had a phone marrow transplant and So Yeah You you learn that light will one thing you learn. Life's not all about you right then as an athlete you get pretty good and you start winning. You feel like you're gonNA talk the world. Well you know the whole world can come on down in about one second so you learn that real quick which builds humility And then you know. It's often jeff little bit and as you know the you know you you never really knew you can love that much until you have a kid and so it's just a little death long away but I wouldn't change it. You know I think my my. My kids are great. My wife's cheese eight years now at the mirror chance over to super bowl on that and we just have a good life. We have great friends and trying to enjoy every day as you can because you know moral could be different and you see that with so many people right now obviously with the pandemic right now locking down and even before this Going on You really choose. You have your ranch. You have your friends. You have the McGrath Olympics that I always love to seeing you and your friends and you always tend to have a really good time been blessed US Opportunity Because of your laziness and then a potentially your hard work eventually paid off but for some of the for somebody that doesn't know you seventy seven time champion and cross. You're what the first ever rookie to win. The two fifty champion chip was that it. Exactly what year was that? Yeah so Before I got the two fifty class raised the one. Twenty five class is what it was called back then and I have two championships in supercross in that and then Moved up as a rookie to the two fifty class and I was the first one to ever win the title as a rookie. So my first year end. It's not big way. I want it and one. It was cool. Yeah six fifteen races I think back then and I won ten of them that your rookie year so You know look. It's one of the things that only happens really into dream. I I I'm I couldn't have imagined that it actually ever GonNa. You know that I was ever GonNa actually win one race let alone. The lotteries is let alone the championship. Let alone all this stuff. I mean I was just trying to figure out because they knew I knew through my career like I started racing motocross when I was late. when I was fourteen years old and normally got her with motoki serving a little and I was a beam raised. Cms for since out of the eight years old until August. Fourteen years old and kind of got burnt out. I mean we went all over the country out of team ride and my mom and I used to fly her races and I had a factory riding on but I don't know there's just a lot I guess it was just a lot for me again. I probably out pretty lazy so You know the the work ethic thing didn't kick in until later but man motocross and supercross. I was like I knew that if I could just get to the stadium floor if I could just get there with the jumps were. I knew that I can shine and I was right. I got there and it didn't take me long to start getting beaten these guys and then Then just man after that. Just kind of them have this. I'm no career sea world to world supercross championships. Seven super titles. One twenty five. How does one out? There Mar tidal almost one in the second one but now life just jumped up at me and got me because I got a little too cocky and I was winning a lot of racism and I tried to jump this big obstacle on one of the race track that I shouldn't try to jump in practice and I came so short. It just tweak my ankle and everything and then So I I end strode on through the rest of that year I we. I was tired with image for the last. The last night was the last rays last year. We're tied on the sideline in my ankle was still really bad jacked up and I just. It was one of my favorite tracks and I was like now gonNa work and and You know he had. He had the right of life on that day. So I ended up your in series but anyway it's been a incredible career and then and then shoot when I stopped racing by Started racing off road and I raised short-course opera for a lot of years and then finally won the championship on In in the protocol that What eighteen thousand eight two thousand eighteen looks foil short protein champion and after? I did that. I was like eight years to get that championship for offroad and I was like. I'm good that's it. I'm good I'm good and the girl who gets at the right as now so was like you not been more time with and let them do the deal so here we are today just cruise and doing a lot of cool stuff accounts Hosting that show that we that is on supercross. That programming for supercross told the supercross. It's like a three minute thing and we go to these different type of You know like in Layman's term on how to write a section or was it like to ride your heart races higher or different things that relate to supercross us. That's been really fun For Kellyanne you're not right now but It's just it's been a great man. And then the introduction of the new California which you mentioned earlier we've been going out Places like superstition and truncated in to and I've been taking the girl down in the New South side side. It's just been really really. Oh I did Kim Hammer this year to a couple months back when Kelly I came out with I we built up the car and competing King Harrison Man. That was that was an dance. I can't wait to get back that that was so cool. Yeah that's that's rates are. Yeah Yeah how? How did you finish you end up hundred forty? Tv's and I finished twenty nine? But I started started fifty seconds. I Call By fiftieth or whatever to non turbo naturally aspirated and then I got all the way in at one hundred twenty Mile Mark I was up seven and then I I I got stopped up on Iraq had to take a line. I didn't WanNa take shop like a six foot ledge almost crash it and I had got it and pull the front down and then I smashed into a rock broke the front bendel and so I had to limp along and then I got through this really really tough catching chocolates under and then And then the front wheel basically broke off so we were sitting there for about. I was in seventy two hours working on it and then I got in and finish the race finish twenty nine and there was only thirty nine finished so it was. It was a cool. I'm pumped shot at the next jump. So that's I mean yeah you really need to bring. I always talk about it when I talk about like von getting junior racing. Ultra four and you really need to bring like your leatherman tool that has the knife has. The fork has a toothpick. You know has the big knife has a serrated knife you need to bring all of that metaphorically in your vehicle and your mind right. I mean a lot of it's mental and you see Lauren Healy. Ckc Curry you see the guys that have done it before. And they're still you know struggling because I it's it's hard work. Man That that King Hammer specifically hammer town as an event now it's growing ultra four racing is just a really unique adaptation of an evolution of motor sports. And that kind of leads me to my next question is equipment. Equipment is is everything in two wheel four wheel. Are you envious now watching? And you're you know you're either down the dirt or or even watching the girls race your daughter's race from yesteryear when you're racing even. Let's talk about Ricky Johnson. Who is your Ido who I who I always. I always say I wanNA be Ricky Johnson. When I grow up I love that dude I just always a great glow and and hey happy he's He's cured a Cova Man. He he endured ovid and he had the corona virus and he took care of himself quarantined and happy to hear that ricky as well but equipment just evolution of it. How envious is your back in now just recently. You had your knee surgery in October. I saw you riding the other day. But how envious of modern technology are you? Well it's kind of a double edged sword right because the new equipment is so awesome but at the same time. Do I really like. It's weird for me to think about. Do I WANNA go that fast? Feed the kids are writing the speed. They're writing today and that the the you know the way they come off that bike. It's when it shouldn't fan is incredible. These guys these guys were You know there's so much more of an athlete. I think than we were in in the nineties. You know we were still able to be an athlete. You know these serious be corporate enough to make a living but then also be able to enjoy my fun time too and which is a lot of things that the young athletes can't do these days because there obviously there and there's a camera on all time with the Social Media. Things changed everything you know. So that the world of kind of growing up and figuring it out without making. We're making mistakes Kinda over you. Have you have to mind your PS and QS today and You know I would say these athletes are just much more of an athlete than than I ever was probably The new equipment incredible. I love read my new bike riding to surf for anything. I'd love to strokes and that's what I came up on and I think it teaches you a lot about the technical aspects of how to ride. Four strokes are awesome and they make things a little easier So you know every you know the finite the athlete you still got to ride the thing like I never ride the bike like they do these days but the you know the the. There's a lot of differences between the two shokhin the for being an athlete. In in this era different. Yeah the the variable. I mean you're working for you guys are working for it and I think that's where you know listening to listen to because I've done some research on you and and I've known you for a while but understanding you applying your bmx flow where you're kind of talk about. Your Lazy. I've never heard you say this. But now you're like okay. I'm lazy. I need to get to that stadium. Four get to that. You know that the double double right and you're kind of like well now. I don't have to pedal now now motorbikes so I can just flow properly and I'm GONNA take that. Bmx knowledge and apply to something motorized. All I have to do is rip it in grip it whisky throttle that thing and clear the four and then I got the win. That was exactly my thing as a kid. I was like open. Open up a twinkie. Yeah it was called. It's called a twinkie dead instead of pedal but have to do this and I can jump. Vat Oh I'm GONNA smoke pool so it was a you know it's the perfect ladyman way of thinking you know it takes me a long time figuring how being so and You know put the work in so yeah get supercross. It was a you know to see guys like John and those guys. Were you know that was an incredible era for us to be able to see super crossing too old to join them like that and just ride with my heroes and then actually become one of the heroes? It's way more than I ever imagined. So it's been it's been a motorcycle is created a lot of great opportunity for me at school. Yeah you and your family and and and your wife and get like I said I love just the whole DNA. In and the upbringing. I grew up in San Diego and hearing your name. And it's your oh McGrath. It's kind of like just saying. Oh what are you an Andretti? It's it's it's synonymous your. Your name is synonymous with two wheel and dirt and all that speaking of being an adult we gotta we gotTa talk about libations because I know you enjoy them so and I know you love your Tequila so I have I poured myself and you and you might be going right mountain bikes later. So you don't have to drink with me but I mean it is rocket fuel but I I'm do I'm GonNa do it because I got the nineteen forty Tuesday. Okay go go get. I'll talk. You WanNa go get some you can. I'M GONNA crank. Yeah go ahead to the class. A zule which had this actually with you at the blockhouse in in Park City and you love Tequila but the class is super and this is the this is if you can't see the bottom if you're not watching this video you're listening to. It's a beautiful white ceramic bottle with the chrome top and I was talking with Ken about this. It's a bit phallic but an Ulta Keila bottles phallic and tall like that. Do you know why they're just shy. Nervous it's the it's a weird flex but it's okay now stand right. That's what I'm saying. I have some in the freezer to but I think we'll ship on with you. And is that is that is that the REP Asada us? Donald Forty two. That's a Banger. That such tipper here. Yeah and you go you go you like it. Frees cheers brother cheers. Thanks coming on here. This is a beer. Because do you. Do you understand my metaphor. The whole because everybody enjoys roadrunners in can really like the comment that I just called the podcast. Beer with jared deandre. It's an acronym. Do you understand the concept of being a road runner not literally the animal not literally a road runner. 'cause I don't know if you see my physicality you have. I'm not a runner by any means but do you understand the whole metaphor either. By the way again we're talking. Defaulted back to the lazy concept of Look Everything. I own his motorise. That's just that's just it right? Yeah I love roadrunners by the way yeah very cool are right and a cornell. Right playing golf. They kills snakes. So they're Kinda you know. Kill Kill the people that are that are you. Don't need right right. So it's it's kind of good just I wanted to call roadrunners because it's metaphor for traveling and and you've done a lot of traveling in your time but but then also apply not to you know traveling animal all those things. That's why I kind of want to do that. And then I was like. Oh let's call it because everybody enjoys roadrunners beer with Jerry deandre but we call it Tequila Agenda. Today speaking of traveling. Where is the craziest place that your career has taken you or even by choice? What's what's kind of a unique place because your your. Your career is taking a lot of different places. Yeah you know what it's with. The super across America works the schedule starts in January and then supercross endon may bag typically and then they have the motocross series which starts right after that and then ends up Labor Day weekend which is September And then those those three months that we have up typically three or four whatever. I think it's three three months October. November December so between October November and sometimes December but not really guys You get invited to these supercross races. These one off races throughout the world. I mean they can be wherever I've traveled I mean Scott. Let's travel go to races so so I didn't really get to travel too much by choice in Kinda pick where I wanted to go but basically by by manipulation. They're like you. You need to come look nice job so it's trying to go race make inside money. Really those side games during those months and then There were different times like when I would bring Kim with me and we would make a rate trip into a vacation trip at the same time So I mean I think our favorite spot has been Australia. I mean Australia. It's been fun and we went for. We've been down there several different times for different races in and saying two weeks at a time on the Gold Coast and then travelling around Pretty Australia pretty insane country pretty awesome. And of course you know when you can speak the language and make things in Galati either But they Italy a bunch of times which love Italy. We travelled all the whole. You know the whole be really Chain with the kids was off. We've been done that. And then you know Francis is so pretty far I would like to go to France in the summer because typically when we traveled to France we'd always go in November. That's when the big races parents supercop Jersey or whatever But I think I haven't went to any. I don't have to any like really unusual box box. I always Kinda see like can and send me. I don't know if you've been Dubai or anyone that my our might be kind of cool. I always thought that never been down there. I've been to Italy Spain Australia. You've been to Asia you rent. You've written for European toppings such as KTM and also in supercross career you wrote for. Yeah Austria I mean. That's that's exotic place Japan. So yeah I was talking with a coal. Sealy was on this podcast before and talk with him. He's just like jd freak. He just loves he's been to Japan with Honda and then he wants to go back. So have you been doing? It ended a car drifting like like like the way that the the Japanese culture is. What the drifting car and all the stuff that es all into that so I could see him. Want to be of Japan's amazing. I've been over there several times in the just the people are just so nice and the culture it's so so cool love and So going back to your history and stuff. There's if you haven't followed Jeremy on on Instagram. Definitely encourage it. He's got this. Just awesome catalog or hoarding of of sentimental items to his dad. His family and him and we're talking about before we came on here. Hopefully his daughters appreciate. I know Kim. His wife does but it's Mcgrath's attic in and I just for instance you pulled out that truly helmet bag or that gear bag kind of a pit bag and it had all these visors from back in the day as minuscule as that. Some collector could just drool all over this one of one or one of five usually probably get a few helmets painted up by Troy. Four one to yeah okay so one of two perfect just that one visor. Some collectors GonNa Drool over that. I mean those those dots when Troy was using those those lime Green Dots. The little brighter. You know those little things I mean. Even those visors. Yeah the bubble's thank you. You have just a bevy of those leather jackets. I think I I mean you gotta be yourself for for Halloween at some point and just wear like the Gaudi EST craziest of era. Jeremy McGrath with like the Guy. Fieri bleached kit. I liked your facebook. The facebook Lincoln tender tender profile. That was that was that was full on the part of the classic full ninety. Three ninety. I you know if you I don't know if you've ever went to a super this but I had wild idea when I had my team back in the ninety eight ninety nine I think going ninety nine the Mahayana Yonaha team and I I had a I had. You're you're speaking of being myself charleen. Different Yeah bigheaded costume him. And then I put them in my gear. This I hired this kid and then Big boots gloves big head and just like kind of like a costume body and I had him walking. Just walking around the pitch. You know taking pictures with kids and everything and like I just thought I'd like Disneyland. Like how Mickey Mouse runs around or Donald Duck and they grow around and take pictures and I was like. We're doing that because it's going to be cool because it's going to be like German grab it would ease some of the pressure off of me if I had the cartoon guy out there this walking around because then people would you know. I mean the supercross gets pretty crowded and you're trying to raise busy so I thought what better way to have fun with the kids and and I still got that confidence I need to have. I need it but one of my daughters than it. Actually there was. Talk about duplicating yourself. I can't be two places at one time you did that because is how many times did how many times did. Mc to get get jumped because everybody wants to beat up you know but they have their. H- have their handlers or wrangles off the side. Can You recount any times? I'm not I I can't really recount. I don't remember him running back on Aga- my little kids or something like that. Luckily luckily everyone like most everyone like me attractive if I was one of those guys. That wasn't well. Maybe might get a bucket or if that cost him guy was the guy beating. Mcgrath me then people might I my. It was pretty cool. I'm an active bus. That thing out. I got a A little video. Think plan that I'M GONNA use it before long. That'd be great speaking speaking of her. Who is your biggest rivalry back in the day? You talked about Amazon coming down to those those labs. You weren't one hundred percent and we can always always blame it on an injury. I'm joking but Who was who was who was. Who was the biggest rivalry in your in your career because as you were kind of because you and Carmichael overlapped a little bit. Which because you're kind of one of the greatest of All. You're not the go car. Michael's known as the quote UNQUOTE. But you're one of the best of all time and the king right you they call you the king. And he's the go. Yeah he he. He went with that acronym to sort of come up with the nickname. Yeah I think so but you can't really go if you're not GONNA go. Hey got fired I ricky knight grown up together to forget buddy. Yeah well I talk about. Yeah I we talk about this with other racers is that that kind of you know Camaraderie. You see in Formula One especially now because you have this. Arti ingrained innate. Even though their teammates they're still going against each other and that's what happened to you and yet yeah. Luckily for me Ricky didn't come into later in my career right. He's so we only overlap a little bit probably three seasons and I and I and I covered him for the first couple but then when he finally got me That year in supercross it was that was full changing the guard. So I mean I knew coming here. Ricky's bat and there's no doubt he's definitely the best there ever was because ensure numbers the guy how many. I have eighty nine. I think I've eighty nine or something like that. Total victories and has a hundred forty or something. Like that right. Ricky sure I I definitely got him. Supercross numbers but You know I always enjoyed watching. Ricky is phenomenal writer just Being able to let loose like he does and and just hanging out there like that presence. Because I was never that got I was always Kinda Guy. They had to stay within my limits. Luckily my limits were high enough where I could rive honey fat but I had to always be controlling. I was always impressed by cameras. He just hanging out there and ride chalk and pull it off and he was good at that so you know he really wasn't considered a rival me with her friends. Media made it out to be a little bit more than it was at the end there but you know as an athlete when it's time to change the guard. You're feeling to hurt you. Know it's like look how demand for a long period of time and now now it's like a Mac many more of this kind of stuff so you know but if anyone had to do it he deserved it. He's a great guy I would say my main was was Jeff. Emig WE You we it out a lot and and really really wasn't I don't feel like I mean honestly you know we're friends now to or not but I don't really feel like it was one of those things where We were June rivals on the outermost across. We're pretty he was better than me for awhile me. That was the part where the lazy part talking about while to figure out how to be a real athlete and Once I did that I you know we started really having some good battles and ended up his game to for outdoor across and he was even better than that me better than me that while I'm supercross we didn't really. We didn't rival that much. I mean early nineties. I had them covered by quite a lot. it was. Just you know certain. Instances that really just didn't didn't sit well with me. He was use different kind of guy. He's a lot more arrogant to me. And I'm not really sure I I don't. I'm not a fan of people that act like that because I don't act like that I just don't think is right. I mean we're we're riding their bikes all to be out of here and the Akron like that weird to me so You know for a few years there. It was just. It was just ten of the person he just wasn't wasn't that cool and then then when you did right around riding at a kid was really. Barbie. He was He was a guy that you know. If you next he would cut a over on takeoff of jump or like I mean was kind of raw and like the etiquette was like I was like Holy Shit Man. This guy's trying to kill me you know and and I'm just starting to go by you like I'm not trying to mess with anyone. I was just it was. It was always me against the track against track. Meet against another guy. I mean I'm writing a check. I don't really care if anyone out there right. I'm doing my own deal but somehow you know and and you know certain guys just maybe they just feel like I gotta I gotTa get my kid. I got your team. I gotTa do something phone down. I gotTa do something. And and he was definitely a guy so we definitely got into a bunch of time. Got a fistfight at one time after more risk and the mechanic had a break. And then you know. Just certain instances along the way that it was just you know and and he would probably say at this point they were pretty lame but You know look I wouldn't have been as good as I was if I didn't have someone who is battling with me. I mean if it was just easy every time people just like Oh yeah no competition which is what they're saying out the numbers that I have people like. Oh he ever so easy back then yeah eating and I was like easy. It was the same today like still everyone's saying like every time to cross others. Eight guys can win this well. I wonder as most the time. But you know this crediting the rest of the field completely because there was no competition. I mean I should have myself. So it's it's funny. How it all works but sport in general how it works you know and Schumacher was winning all those races. They were like. Oh that's easy on your well. I mean all the other guys were amazing too. It's just even better so You know like sort of counting it now or whatever and But anyways you know. I mean rival rivalry why he sticks out the most and it's mostly because we didn't get along at times and five times or whatever you know I was. I'm sure you're getting him and human. They're getting me. So this is what a lot of great writers but he was the one that stands out right and it's two different schools of thought. And you're you're considering irresponsible. He's considering aggressive to get the win. And that kind of goes in the next question of Modern Day supercross when you watch it and I've kind of spotty here and there and but most recently there's been a couple of races that French. Have you been watching lately? The the French cat that just he got a lot of flack for coming in and diving of bouncing. Yeah he see he caught a lot of flack for that. And I think you know it's give and take and I mean these guys are bringing these fricken guns to a knife fight and and like you said here comes here comes here comes you and jeff back in the day in here comes jeff coming across you when you're going for a jump. They're bouncing each other off like backboards. Where does your mind go? Are you dislike? What like are you freaking out? Because we've seen Degan chime in we've seen Kerry chime in a lot of these dudes that are obviously armchair experts. But here's here's you. Where's your mind at yeah? I'm all as a fan. I'm all for me out there. I don't I don't necessarily. I would necessarily say that I didn't I don't like that but you know I mean that one specific grass where it's went underneath craig a little little heavy but you know. He took a lot of ship for being just for being French. You know people are like we don't want a French guy coming over here. You know you know beating guy and then taking them out at the same time so it's kind of You know there. There's a there's a there's a line I mean there's this alliance like there isn't any kind of racing you can rub and you can do all these things but the minute you take a guy out then it. You've crossed the line and They they really don't like it. The the organization doesn't like it and the other thing is they they hate retaliation right so you get mailed and then you go mail from him back while you're the guy that's the trouble. I don't necessarily agree with that. I think if someone else you kind of open season right it's let's play. Let's play if you're man and then you're gonNA be taken out like go back battle on the track and it's unfortunate. They didn't they. Don't let that happen so I don't know we had a lot of identity. I mean as with another guy that I raised with. You know we have battles but he took me out a few times and I had to get get me with it and take him out and and you know you have to stand your ground if you don't stand your ground and you're just GonNa get abused out there who gets abused. I mean look at Cole ceiling for one he. He was a guy who got abused by Jason Anderson. A lot of time and this would not pick up themselves. So certain instances You know a certain instances they need you needed to take care of yourself. There's no Chair but you yeah and then and look at you know when Cole goes into former I call them an X. supercross racer and retired. He says I'm not retired. I'm not retired. He's retired from Super Cross but he's a former supercross racer such as yourself. You know it's like you don't call somebody ex-marine therefore marine respectively so user former supercross racers and and now it seems like he's having a lot of fun. I I love Kohl's doing and he's kind of a fan of the two stroke taken that bike to straight rhythm that that event and doing things his way kind of is post. Post supercross celebration. What other events are you kind of looking to do? You're doing a lot of stuff with the girls. You're going out in the desert. You have great partners Kawasaki of Armagh. Obviously you're still with monster for for quite some time What other projects are you looking forward to do? Or what should people expect from you in coming years? I think You know clearly they offer thing and become really so in the fall apart in the division side of things I still pro. I feel my shop I work closely with Max. Max is a great partner my also so with Max's We were going to do truck stuff. I'M GONNA raise crandon probably this year if we get back to doing any event Want to try and raise crandon race that last year. Which is the big opera racist in the in the fall Labor Day weekend? I think what a great event I WANNA we're talking about Clinton and Kawasaki the character one thousand Vegas Reno car together. Maybe raise them desert and that one you know I wanNA raise that one but I think maybe two years from now I WANNA put my girls in that race to and maybe they can drive with each other or something like that. What to be really cool So getting them involved more on the side by side of course Earlier we talked about my knee. I had a knee replacement in October. And it's been six months now and it's actually feeling pretty good. I went to ride motocross the other day and I might actually go riding this again and the Niko pretty good. So precise on that Doing a lot of stuff on my bike recount sake and So you know now. It's kind of all about fun all about doing things for colleen and Max it's really in monitor and then we have to supplement brand. We're building Arm So Just trying to you know. Get my feet wet and a lot of different things and stay heavily involved in the industry. Which is the motor industry and As far as my kid. Yeah just being a rat dad and kind of nurturing them what we're going to leave we're going to leave you here in a little bit but all right so you're jumping into your car. You're you're about to ride up and Just kind of we're talking about this. You'RE GONNA go ride with Troy. You're going to you know. Drop a names. They're truly iconic in in motorsports world now but go ride mountain bikes with him and against social distancing. But what's the first song playlist? Boom you turn your plug your phone and just plays. I know automatically plays usually but Bluetooth when he finally said it in. What are you gonNA play? What are you listening to? I don't think I like Lincoln Park Lot if my like my phone and be. It's either Lincoln Park or notorious. B I g okay stuff man just a little. I like nineties hip hop a lot into that makes I mean little little time capsule. They're going to block everything. But and your wife makes you even cooler about that though is when I give my kids My phone or they're on McKay play music. They put big pretty cool. That's pretty and I like ninety to wrap so I'm like all right right. Yeah they don't even like you like I taught him. Well you're like I thought well. And what your favorites Akilah? Don't I'm kidding you're asking the girls? I'm saying you're asking the girls. What's what what would you daddy daddy and then like what's what's kind of your dream by because I know like people you know like you know when you're younger you wanted this bike. You wanted that setup and now here you are. You're older you own your dream bike or do you have a bike in your mind that you'd like to build that these people listening they know who you are. They're like Oh yeah. That was like the jam. I wanted that to stroke or even that one twenty five that cub that you know I mean. Do you own a bike or do you have on your bill. I think as you get older that that mark moves right so that target moves so okay I when you know when I was you know when i Parker Age or my daughter ruins age fourteen. I mean all I can think of like I wanNA have a you. Know two fifty like Ricky Johnson. Whatever and and then you you get there and you have that for years and years and then as you get older like okay cool I. I have all the cool motocross like now. What would I want You know then then you WanNa go like the ultimate like trail bike right right now. These days it's been around winner a want. A motocross bike played on it then.

I think need spiked maxes. I don't know if there's enough knobs on that because you'd get that instantaneous. Torque you just lied them up and wouldn't get the grip so but you could. You could control it and do trash control. And that's just a whole game changer. But Yeah I mean.

A Grammy winning oscar-nominated American singer Songwriter Musician and beloved front man of one of the most commercially successful pop rock bands of all time. They achieve nineteen top ten singles during the nineteen eighties early nineties and today's of salt something in the region of thirty million albums with delighted to welcome the wonderful. Huey Lewis to the show as this episode. Ritu bound recently released whether their first album in ten years. I original music since two thousand and one and we met with Huey at the MG officers in Paddington. London back in late February when the world was very difference. Talk about the record and a good deal more. Besides it was a real thrill to meet him and as you'll hear he was in good spirits. And the very gracious Interviewee Huey was born. Hugh Anthony Cragg the third in New York in Nineteen fifty but moved with his family to California around the age of five and grew up in the San Francisco Bay area. His Dad was a physician who moonlights to digest drama while his mother was an artist than a beatnik through whom he encountered the likes of Charles Mingas and Allen Ginsberg our guest attended boarding school and New Jersey where he was a bit of a maths Whiz by all accounts following which at his father's encouragements he took time out to hitchhike across the US then stowed away on a transatlantic flight to Europe where he goes on street corners with his harmonica and gigged with pickup bands. When you shows of money he was back in San Fran. By the end of the sixties he briefly attended Cornell University to study engineering but left at the end of the seventies without completing his studies as a teenager in the late sixties he gravitated more towards soul music arm bay than the PSYCHEDELIC music scene and in nine hundred seventy to join the bay area band clover. Adopting the stage name of Huey Lewis with a slightly different spelling in nineteen seventy six. The bomb was spotted playing in La by our former guest. Nick Lowe who persuaded them to move to the UK where they arrived in the middle of the area managed by Jake Riviera and Dave Robinson of stiff records. The band recorded two albums for Phonogram in England with producer Robert Mutt Langa while members of clover also performed on. Elvis Costello's debut album. My aim is true. Meanwhile Huey befriended thin lizzy frontman Phil Linens and playing. On that band's legendary live album live and dangerous. Having failed to make a splash there couple of records clover despondent upon their return to California in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight Huey. Assemble these next bond including bassist. Mario Cipollini and Saxophonist Johnny Cola while playing a residency at a club in Marin county there were originally called Huey Lewis and the American Express and eventually secured at the Christmas but not before the label insisted on a name change so Huey Lewis and the news was following the recruitment. Petar Chris Hayes. The band released their parliaments debut in nineteen eighty but it was with their second album picture. This and breakthrough single. Do you believe in love at their. First Chart Successes. God I always wanted to be. That Petar player was his nickname. The kid that's right. Yeah our magic being called the kid them running around and white trainers planned salvos all night. What more could you want? The band truly hit pay with their third album sports. It's up the billboard charts yielded four top ten singles including the heart of rock and roll. And if this is it and remains the best-selling pop albums of all time. Huey and Co achieved fair the success with two songs on the soundtrack one thousand nine hundred five blockbuster movie back to the future one of which the power of Love was number one and nominated for an Oscar. He also cameo in the movie. Of course he did indeed. It's so indicator of his profile. At this point that Huey was also one of the artists to sang on the one thousand nine hundred five charity single. We are the world. I think you've signed a part that was intended for Princeton. That's correct yeah. I'm prince didn't show up so here we go to d-print further success came with their fourth studio album for another chart topper which spawned two number ones in stuck with the on the Bruce Hornsby penned Jacob's ladder nineteen eighty eight. Small world was another platinum record the title track arguably one of their finest. In my opinion I would agree. All the solid albums include hard play the covers album full codes and several years ago plan B and a second covers album souls.

Do you remember when not sold future art. What a time short. Let's joking too. Hearing grupp Slough delighted to get to see you. We love whether we think it sounds fantastic. Thank you well. I'm really glad to be here. So thanks for having me while will young. It's just a lovely sounded song isn't it? Yeah I love that song kind of one of the first ones we put together. You know. It's an expression in America while we're young if somebody's taking your picture and they're taking too long. Usaa while we're young but it's written about growing old obviously by a guy who's not that young but he's not that old either and you cut some of the vocal home. I think I did we. We the originally John Pierce our bass player and I wrote the song in my living room and then Johnny put another part to it but I sang in my living room. We like something about that. So we we pinched some of that and put it on the master and was the rest of it. Kind of assembled remotely. Yeah sort of once we got the track in our studio guitar came in and played and did it but we didn't all play at one time on that. Now right be unusual for you. We've made records all kinds of ways. You know made a soul record souls Ville where we captured everything completely live and real ambient ways and then we've also made records where we cut and paste and use machines and stuff so there's no right or wrong that the Song Kinda tells you how wants to be handled. I think yeah. I think most of the songs were written quite a while ago. Is that right true Yeah my hearing crash two years ago and we had seven songs. That's why there's only seven I lost my writer thirty three years ago. Let lost my left ear about two years in a month ago. And I can't hear music anymore to to sink to because it's cacophony for me distorts and resonates and goes crazy. So it's it's horrible. The good news is it does fluctuate once in a while and can get little better and when it's better like one to ten on it's a six which is as good as it's been in two years. I'm okay with hearing aids and the technology and maybe even could sing again but I haven't been six and stable long enough to find out And that's the bad news hearing story but that's why there's only seven songs on the record. We were sort of compiling as we went along. We had seven things in the Kellyanne. I lost my hearing. You know we waited for a while to see if I could regain it and when I couldn't we We signed a release the songs to the fans. You not the fist guest. We've had to struggled with their hearing. K T tunstall the Scottish singer Songwriter. Okay she lost hearing in one ear as well. I'm Patty Makalu. From the bomb prefab sprout eat had many years as well see almost always the hearing loss with many years. One side one air and one ears. No problem I lost my right ear thirty three years ago after several vertigo bouts with years between them and my father was a doctor who sent me to a renown. Emt My right ear. Felt like I got out of the swimming pool and it just was stuffed up and he said well get used to it. I said what did you say? I'm musician I'm a singer I. He's Brian Wilson had one ear Jimi Hendrix. Had One ear. Says I have one ear and I'm in a barbershop quartet. You only need one ear and you do. You'll need one but I don't even have one. That's my problem is killing me is another one from back in the day. Is Chris Hayes? Chris as and I wrote that. Song embarrassingly probably twenty years ago and we never got a right. We just couldn't get it right. We tried it and didn't work and then we played it live and it didn't work and we tried some hybrid version where we started with a drum machine and halfway through the whole band busted in. That didn't work. We abandoned the song and now three years later we were at a rehearsal and we just started playing it and it just fell together and lessen their which is the simple songs. They're the hardest ones to get right. They're not allowed to cords to help you. It's all about the tempo and the feel and the moment you know and we got it right. Finally I'm picking relievers. Every night is killing me. Sometimes it takes a lot of patients with songs nate. You have to wait for that right. It isn't like playing live at all. Making a record is a technological consideration You have to make sure you're you know you got all the buttons pushed. Does that mean that might be other great songs that you just haven't quite found a home full yet that you've been holding onto for a long time now I got a couple of ideas but nothing fully formed. Yet we have a Broadway show a musical. There were hoping planning to bring Broadway next season. We've just partnered with a Tony Award winning producer Hunter Arnold who produced hagerstown which won all the awards and musical of the year last and so very excited about that and I wrote a new song for that. While we're young is in that show as well and I wrote another new song with Jani. Coa for the show called. I WanNa be someone that's The centerpiece of that show. But I've just been worrying about my hearing and trying everything I've been to everywhere. I've tried chiropractic acupuncture low salt organic diet. No Caffeine no chocolate. I've into the House Ear Institute Stanford Institute Mayoclinic Talk With Steve Rouse from Harvard Medical School. None of this stuff works. I'm really trying to get my hearing back. But in the meantime I try to stay creative and keep busy so I don't have to think about it if that makes any SASSAMAN will. There's still a warm sense of humor on this record. We thought songs like remind me while of you again. The sleep number beds good. I'm surprised see so much of our stuff is so American. Sleep number bed you know. We're young one of the boys. These things are like Americanisms in a way I mean I'm amazed that they resonate with anybody outside of our country so I'm just happy that it happens you know And those sorts of things. Would you write those down during the writing process and just keep hold of lands? You think might be funny for a song or we should in fact. That's a good idea. But I don't I don't do any of that. I just I wait for the idea to come and then I write the song. I don't save anything. I don't keep anything I mean. That's not quite true. I have some notes stuff around. I probably have some cassette tapes and and I got a few things on my phone zing and into my phone gas but not not many couple two three and then the song that you cova pretty gals every way you really nail low fifties vibe with those backing vocals. Don't use kinda sounds like the coast is to US okay. Eugene churches the the artists and the story it where I got it was in eighty eight or eighty nine we were. Our tour was sold out in America and the agents said to me. Who Do you like to open? I said let's get the Neville brothers so he did and sure enough. We did a national tour the Neville brothers and we kind of fell in love were. I always loved the now brothers but we jammed every night on stage and made friends with them and at the end of the tour Aaron Neville came up to me and he said to call pretty girl there. Well by Eugene Church I said no man he said man. You need to do that tune. I said what you need to do is right up your alley okay. And then he sent me the seven inch vinyl of it and I didn't even play I just stashed it somewhere and I found it like three years ago and played it when. Oh my gosh. She's right and so we cut it and I told Aaron about it and he's he was pleased everywhere I go. Ooh Ooh girl pretty but you never really let go of that sort of Doo wop style even when you were making all those very very popular records so like naturally and we all we all sing. So why not and. Johnny does our vocal arrangements. Johnny Cola is the vocal arranger for us. That's his thing. So you know Sean Sayings. Billy sings is saying Johnny States and it's kind of a return for us also our soul music records didn't have as much background vocals sports at a lot of background. But if this is it like these kinds of things and you know people like that so we try to do that a little bit on this record yeah interesting. How very the album is stylistically. Especially for such a short record. You Cram a lot different things in like one of the boys. For instance treads kind of country territory. What was the story behind the song? Yeah I'll tell you the story I mean it is very and record. Companies always hated that about you. Know they always say you got a narrow focus but you know. Sports is all over the map too so I think that's just kind of the way it is with us you know and I think if the song rings true than it works. I don't know that's what I hope that Song One of the boys was inspired by a producer. Called Dave Cobb in Nashville is a great producer and We mutuel France. We had lunch and he said he liked me to try and write a song for Willie Nelson which was amazing. You know me right for Willie. Nelson rewrote crazy. Wow and even kind of pointed me in the right direction but I thought nothing of it but I woke up a couple weeks later with the whole song in my head and I got with Jani. We demoted up and we send it to him and he loved it but never got the Gig so I thought well there. We go but our drummer Bill Gibson said. I think we should do it. He says I think it's great for you. I said really and then I played it listening to it is to see whether or not I thought it was. You know in our ballpark. And I realize that the lyric which I'd written for Willie Nelson as if I was Willie Nelson was actually my life story. Great Pedal Steel. I'm not want as well. John mcphee on pedal steel from the now with newbies. Who was from clover and I just sent it to him because we didn't have steel on it initially and I said let's put a pedal steel on it. I called him up. He says Sheer Senate down. I send it down to him and he cut me two tracks a he was unbelievable. I told him play one. Just play everything. You can't fill every hall and do another one as if you were tastefully accompanying me and what you think is correct. And that's all I need to tracks and I said and I don't Wanna lap steel but I don't want that real sophisticated pedal steel sound the jazzy thing. He's I know what you want. He said Cross between Bakersfield and William Senior. And that's what it is about mcphee's a tremendous musician and a really good friend and he. Yeah he woke the song boy play with my friends music dance and so on down the road ahead another another show making beautiful noise me and the boy. It's a beautiful noise just one of. Oh Boy Burn. We had Nicolau on the podcast that one points. That's our only clova connection so far. I think yeah I think so. We had one of his biggest fans. And you know mcphee is the one who plays the lead guitar on Elvis. Costello's my aim is true right. Yes you know the Beautiful Little Guitar Phil Yet. That's also John mcphee. Who Played The pedal steel? He's such a great musician and nick is a great songwriter. And you know in a wonderful guy although he has a very American sensibility music wise. He's so British. Yeah so British. Nick and for the life of me. I don't understand why he's not a huge star in this country Britain is pretty unkind to own time. And you know what I mean and Philip. Lenin was the same way it's interesting But I mean Britain's should be very proud of of Niccolo. He's a he really is a treasure. Yeah we love no absolutely We also funds of the soul of early new wave kind of songs. You know like some of my lies a true and right shoveling paradise. Yeah Yeah Yeah well. If I was in clover clover came over here. Nick was slotted to produce but punk hit the day. We arrived and all bets. Were we were a long haired country band in the middle of punk and we were managed by Dave Robinson Jake Riviera and they both immediately partners on Elvis Costello stiff records the damned wreckless Eric. Bom and it was off but the exciting part for me was the stance. The punks add wasn't so much musical for me because I've always liked the same music I've always liked. But you know clover spent all our time grooming ourselves to be attractive for record labels and these guys were thumbing their noses the record labels and say we don't care singing. Her own songs are away and I said that's what I'm GONNA do. This band ever breaks up. I'M GONNA go back to Marin County I'm GonNa go to the light my little club. I'm going to ask him for Monday nights. I'M GONNA surrounded with my mates now. I'M GONNA sing every song and the band's going to have a little more saxophone and a little less guitar and be Kinda R&B based that's what I did The so focused a logically those songs that won't they like. Do you believe in low Friday. There's not a wasted moment in those songs. You know what I mean just well. Yeah I mean those are the time to a radio world. There was no youtube. There was no internet. You had to have a hit single or you're in the game so we insisted on producing ourselves because we wanted to make those commercial choices ourselves. Nineteen eighty two. We were an unknown band producing ourselves. That just didn't happen but our manager fought for it and Christmas. Fortunately was six thousand miles and couldn't control us and so we produce picture this do believe in love which I got from Mutt. My friend and you know one of greatest record producers who ever lived and a great songwriter and I rewrote the the lyric. The theory was do the best eight songs we can write. And the best to outside once and do you believe in level was a hit. Kind of a tickle but it only really was break even hit so sports was the record that really had sell us through and we really needed to hit single and so we aimed every track right at radio and we know we needed to hit. We didn't know we're going to have five or six of them. Did you tweak about the lyrics? Do you believe in love Well I changed it. It was called. We both believe in love Rice. The course was completely different. It was different sentiment. 'cause that course is just on deniable isn't a guy. Well Matz great writer too. I mean he doesn't miss. I mean he wrote all the DEF leppard stuff and he wrote all the Shi'ite Twain an AC DC produced all that they don't come any better than obviously the blues essential to music especially through the harmonica plan we wanted. Did you ever use that as a right into the harmonica or is it always a kind of a finishing CH- mostly finishing touch? Yeah blue sermon. I mean a lot of it's been done. I mean little Walter Sonny by Winston. Wow you know. And so I look for a way to be original a little bit so I use less amplification generally and then I also like to just play melodic lines like George Harrison. I try and think of myself as George Arison night. That's what you mean. Yeah of the George Harrison of Armani. He always surprised US how much shift the blues was still in those records. You know the organ plane and the Hawks playing well. That's you're very perceptive and that's it. I mean we use Hammond organ you know. How many records use Hammond organ? I mean very rarely and not a sample. He's a real Hammond organ. You can hear the last and that makes a difference is pushing air. Yeah so yeah I mean those. Are the choices you make. I guess it's subtle but but it's their songs like bodies Botin working for eleven and heart of rock and roll the kind of blues. They might succeed as pop songs. Don't they well? Yeah that's right. And and the Gimmick there the trick is not really trick is those songs are really old blues songs. But they're cut as contemporary as one thousand nine hundred eighty two got with drum machines. Bad as bad as these. These two and those are at Linn Drum high-tech her own right and harder rock and roll. Is I mean? I don't give away the secret but it's sequenced. Yeah it's cut to machine. Yeah and the overdubbed played do a machine. We wanted that little edge that little contemporary edge yet. And that's how we cut this record as contemporary as we we're contemporary nineteen eighty up as a minute. Maybe three well. It kind of reminds me how How prince around the time so to eighty-three with one thousand nine hundred nine blending organic instruments on the lendrum where he was even more ninety nine has no base. Yeah I mean you know he was radical for as what artist and I mean. Well you know we were just trying to nineteen eighty. I believe or seventy nine. We heard that some guy called Roger. Linn had just caros drums in a box. We say what yeah? It's it's a machine and his drum I said what do you mean? It's it's a chip? What's a chin? What we what we heard about this thing called a drum machine. That people were using on their records. I always love them harder. Rock and roll for the travelogue. You know the different cities that you mentioned. I think that's kind of a trick. A lot of songwriters of used to get people on board with the song. Yeah WHEN IN DOUBT SHOUT CITIES. It's a good lesson. James Brown did it as well rounded. Did it Chuck Berry did it? It's you know to be shout cities in Canada battle Ru Homa city San Francisco music anymore. Did they say a off? Think him lyrically. Most of the songs tend to be. So it's a fastened rather than kind of inventing characters is a song right sister true and and you know I have very few creative regrets but I do have one. And that's that would be hip to be square which originally wrote in the third person he to be a renegade used to fill around but he couldn't take the punishment had to settle down mental articulated phenomenon quite common in the eighties of these Bohemian types from the sixties dropping back in becoming Bourgeois bozen Paradise David Brooks book articulated that and by the way so did American cycle actually sure same kind of an idea but I thought it would be funnier if I told him I myself right. I used to be a renegade and unfortunately some people thought it was like an anthem for Squire people. It was never intended to be well. I guess you thought Bay area background. Didn't you the Hippie culture that you came up and see? I thought people would take that for granted. My hip card has been punched. My mom was was hit. I come from hippies. You know I figured my credentials work safe but on that I know I guess that's kind of one of the great things about songwriting. Isn't it that you know your intention with song might be completely different from how people take? They don't sleep. That is a really really good point. And that's something. They're always remember because songs are kind of gifts. You know the idea comes songs need to be about something and generally you get this idea and you go got it but now you gotta actually realize it without blowing it and that's hard to do because it gets out of control sometimes and you got to reel it back in and you do your best job of that that you can to get it to where you think it's good as you can get it and then some of them just get up and fly and some of them just lay there dead and there's no reason to it as far as I can figure out what Brian was saying about prints maybe think of small world this well because I think that song has those qualities. Doesn't it very atmospheric courts and what sounds like a sequenced base. It is a sequence base. I it's kind of a experimental song as well like the second pass as embassy. Wild part standards is sax. Solo is the best piece of Music. That we've have on tape 'CAUSE OF GETS. I mean He. I could tell you we you know we could talk about how he plays. Yeah well it's just a lot with. Let's go there. I mean by the way we're talking about small world which after sports and four you know we sold millions of records and all this stuff and I said that we wouldn't do anything for commercial reasons anymore. I figured we needed to stretch out. We had to explore these other rhythms and other kinds of songs. And all that stuff so that was the idea. It was by the way selected as rolling stones worst album of the year. But we got stand gets to play on. My father was a Jazzar and when zoot Sims died there was a benefit at a little club in San Francisco and my old man said zoo died. And there's a benefit. It's going to be unbelievable Jimmy. John's trio gets and other people are coming said. It'd be great so unbeknownst to him. I got two tickets and I surprised him. I said Pop. So we're GONNA go to the zoot Sims benefit. Oh man that's great that's great. He had never seen me perform yet. My Dad always thought that what I did was kind of like. He called it. The funny hat routine is he was a Jazzar and every jazzman in one song they do a comic deal where they put funny hats over there mutes and stuff. He thought all of rock and roll was the funny at. He didn't reckon it anything more than that and he had never seen me perform and we were starting to happen. So I get these two tickets and we'd go down to. I guess it was. What's now Kimble's the jazz club and were there early? And Oh my gosh they say Huey Lewis. Great to have you here and my dad's going. Wow these people are paying attention to my son. That's amazing and then they walk us down to our seats which it's very small place. We're right in the middle on the isle third row. These two seats in gentlemen sitting right there already is Phil. Ellwood the jazz critic for the San Francisco. Chronicle whose of great renown jazz critic and my. Oh Man knows all the jazz people you can tell you everybody and Jimmie Lunceford Span. Everybody in chick. Webb's Band Ernie lockjaw Davis zoot Sims and Cudi Williams. And everybody you know. Billy strayhorn the arrangers all that stuff and he knows. Phil Elliott and Phil ellwood goes. Oh my gosh. It's Huey Lewis Man. Great to me my old man's going what he knows. Who Kid is so now. My Dad's sits next to fill ellwood and they are going on like a house afire about different bands and who played drums with WHO and he knew some of these cats and talk about. They're having a ball and I feel a tap on my shoulder and I turn around and it's gets and he's got his horn on and he goes eight YOU LOUIS. I said Yeah. He's my girlfriend. Wants to eat your shorts BUBBA. Well he says. Why don't you let me plan some your shit? This is you know I can play that shit too as well. Yeah I suppose you're GonNa and he gave me a little card that says have sachs will travel and On the ride home mile man says if you don't take him up on that I will never ever forgive you. The man has cancer. He's not going to be around. That long mailman was radiologists in new those circles and he says you know this is a once in a lifetime thing so we struggled to find a song that gets could play over and Chris came up with small world and so when we had small world we had the song and I sent it gets and he came up and played on it. I split the song up into which I shouldn't have done. I should've left it in one. The we edited it for a single. It was a five minute single and it broke a string of twenty top ten singles that we have never cracked the top twenty but it is the best piece of music. I believe that we've ever had on record. And it's represented on smaller small world part two but it was such a lesson such a music lesson watching him do it and play it. I get chills when I hear it. Yeah it's wonderful track him you talk about that zone of hits. It's amazing really because we grew up in the air of four and power love of course that song in particular power. Love it so omnipresence. Isn't it even to this day? We hear all the time I think to an extent you can kind of forget. What a great piece of music. It is well Sure that sweetie to say you know. I don't know all I know about power love I remember is that you know because again. We're producing the records ourselves so we're trying to get them done and we're doing and I remember seeing the vocal in studio city and the record plant and those days were recording with analog tape so we only had twenty four tracks and one was for seventy so he only had twenty three tracks so he had to be judicious about your tracks. So what you cut a vocal was GONNA sing three times and then you comp it to one track pick whichever wins the best one and then go down till there was a mistake and then you have a contract and then you erase those three tracks so now you only have one track. So I'd Sung vote when I came back in and I calmed down. And then I just played it to listen to the COP vocal the rest of the Vogel and I was engineered by myself. And Sean Hopper Kinda came in the control room our keyboard player and backing me and the thing played down. I'm just listening to the vocal. Listen to listen to it and vignettes. Okay mom and when it finish hopper said that's the best thing we've ever done and I went well really I hadn't even considered you know what it was. Yeah Yeah it's good you really as I mean I. It's a classic. Never know that though. You know it's one of those songs that just got up and flew and you know thank God I mean. That's a gift that's just a gift. Did it start with Chris Hayes not one without vamp yeah? Chris had a little progression. Which was the verse progression? And then I had a meeting with Steven Spielberg Bob's zemeckis neo canton and Bob Gale. And they said look. We've just written this film and the lead character's Mardi MC fly and his favorite band would be Louis. How about writing a song for the film I said? Wow that'd be great. I mean a flattered. I don't know how to write for film necessarily frankly. I don't quit fancy writing a song called back to the future. No problem just the next thing you rights and down to us we just want one of your songs is what they said. I said okay. We'll I'll send you the next thing I write and I had these various progressions on that little piece of music of Christmas and I put it on a Walkman and I went on a little run. It hit me and I was kind of inspired by my kids and I wrote it in one sitting and then I think I sang it on the demo. And send it to Bob's America's it gets a little unclear here because I thought we just send the too many loved it but some Mecca says the one I sent it to him. He thought it was an up enough and he told me. And I said okay well because the verses in a minor key in so I mentioned that to johnny and Johnny had an idea and he put up the bomb bump those three chords stabbed his yet and then they loved it. That's how we did it. One of the things I think is most special about that. Song is is actually the bridge. That's Christmas bridge is beautiful courts. Yet will Rick Rubin once said if the bridge isn't the best parts of the song that shouldn't be a that's interesting and that song sort of exemplifies the I think it's so great songs have great bridges. Yeah and that's where a lot of songs fall down there. Good but got no bridge and they disappeared in the nineties. I think that's why eighty songs are still popular. Because they follow that formula for an American popular song which is Verse Chorus Verse Chorus Bridge Chorus. Out or course out And everything's in fours for the most part three four four four eight bars or you know in fours and that's the way it's done. It's like Haiku trying to reinvent the wheel. That's what you're trying to do too remember Kennedy when it comes to in time. I noticed that one's much more specific in terms of the film. You mentioned Dr Enlightening. Yeah you know Did you have a script something we have done? It love power love. They finish the movie and they hastily said. We need another song for the credits. I said well. Yeah okay. I'll give it a so. I rewrote the movie. You know and and shots progression and I and we got together and wrote it in a few hours so the guitar riffs and the brass riffs which of intertwine on that song. Yeah would you have a hand in that? Would you be in those parts and Rice? We all have a hand in everything and when I say that I really our drummer. Bill Gibson is just the drummer. But he's got unbelievable. Here's a great musician and everybody in our band has got great here. So we it kind of collectively. Yeah you know. We're all there and you say. Oh what if this? What if that but Johnny pretty much writes the horn chart and then we say Johnny about that fourth bar or whatever you know. And that's the way that goes I mean. He's the horn department in the vocal department. Billy's rhythm section but we all run over each other. Yeah everything seems to have. Its right place on those records doesn't like the way that guitars were stuck with you. For example nothing. So it's about the place. Oh yeah yeah yeah well probably the most important part of our records is Bob. Clermont new mixes them. I mean he's spectacular mixes everybody from the Rolling Stones. Bruce Springsteen I mean you know it's amazing how good he is and we've gotten very good because we made lots of records. We can mix our own records but we can't get near. Clermont for some reason. Well it's always been amazed that you guys produced those albums as well. He sounds so pristinely with with the shoe and there was a guiding hand. You know we wanted to make those commercial choices ourselves. You know. You're going to have to live within models of do it yourself and we'd learned you know. We went spring chickens. I'd been around done. Sessions here worked. Philemon at work with Nick Lowe Dave. Edmunds you know. I'd done a few things so we were confident. We had Clermont in the mix it so yeah we produced it ourselves. I think you'll ear for melody specifically is important though because even the song she didn't write something like Jacob's ladder for example. Imos feel great to have those awesome. Yeah Oh yeah. Oh Jacob's ladder. You know. I produced three songs on. Bruce Hornsby's I record and you know he didn't need a producer but we had fun doing it and I wanted him to do Jacob's ladders one of my favorite songs. But he wrote it a different way completely different arrangement and I want him to do this arrangement and he didn't get he said you do it so okay. I'll do it and we did it and it was. It was and it was. I told him I said Bruce. I told you to find you. Kinda still have ideas for songs on a regular basis or drilling needs to be prompted by something. I'll have a project to work on I I still get ideas you know. I used to get ideas on a regular basis. But I'm anything but prolific. I'm not like my pal Niccolo. Hammer them out right but you just you've got to have an idea you know. And I think the way to have ideas be receptive to them to be around instruments and all that stuff and be thinking about songs in music. Since I lost my hearing I don't think about that. Struggling to hear pitch you know it just depresses me so much. Can't you play one note on a piano and it's out of tune with itself? Just horrible I go so I I think about other stuff. You know the musical or whatever but having said all that there's lots of people out there way worsen I am. I still have a lot to be grateful for all in all. I'm unlucky guy important that I remember that. It's not easy. But it's important you one of the all time greats to wait so thank you so much for doing. This has been great to get to say von chatting with your boys. Thank you choose to That was Huey Lewis token to us at the offices in Paddington Water. Great Guy Yeah as we said at the top of the show it was just such a thrill to meet. Yeah and when you revisit those albums really realize that. He and the band that just pop craftsman of the highest order. Oh absolutely I don't think they get anywhere near enough credits for the quality of the songwriting on those records that musicianship and of course you know. What a sensational singer. Oh I mean not voice. It's just one of those voices die so even and powerful and just the tone and everything is perfect like he listened to something like this bad and he hits that line where he sings sometimes and just the sort of uniform tone of the way here compelled that out and still have it sound. Good just blows me. All Right is absolute must. They're still scientific on. The new record can only keep your fingers crossed one day. He's able to return to the live stage and gracious with that voice. Uma Definitely Going back over. Some of the old attracts that he didn't write like Jacob's ladder. And do you believe in loaf? Now it's thrilling to wasn't it? Oh absolutely you know. And the Mo Langa I mean working with him at such a crucial juncture must have been really big influence on here. He's kind of melodic sense or to be. I would say and of course I couldn't let the interview go by without talking about my favorite movie of all time back to the young. Yeah I mean what can you say I mean we both just? We kind of grew up on that movie than we We say that don't we? It's true these people are the solve hallmarks of culture that we grew up watching thou definitely Yemen going. See that for a sixth or seventh birthday party. A group of us from primary school went to watch. I saw it on my seventh birthday here. Yeah you know it's it's pure fantasy stuff. I is an IT really. And they're going to the songs. I always loved how specific he gets in that back in time. Yeah it really sort of said he retold the movie he you know you can hear him talking about the different characters. He mentions dog actually mentioned Marty at one point. Those nieces get back Marcy. Yes it has yet which I always took to be a maybe a Beatles reference. Oh Yeah Yeah. I think it's a get back. Joe Joe Moments isn't it and it was quite unusual. It wasn't in There were setting challenges mainly Hueys. Obviously from pretty bad here in las at the moment so You know there was a little bit of repeat and raise. Our voices let allowed. We normally would. Yeah and you know. We've obviously we've tied up the episodes a little bit so what people don't have to hear that it was kind of shocking. Wasn't it because you know when you know someone is being such a great kind of singer and performer? And Music experts. And then you face to face with them talking on the literally con here. And even when you know it's it it's it's definitely a little bit disconcerting yet Because he has good days and bad days and on the day we met he was having a particularly bad day so as I say it was a challenge still tremendous phone. Yeah and then Towards the end the came up to me said him at the thing is guys. I've always been a shitty listener but now I've got an excuse. Yeah that was great and also it's not every day you end up getting filmed for a Huey Lewis documentary of course. Yeah the filmmaker kick. Kenny was there. I don't know if you've ever seen these Zachary book you made this absolutely masterful documentary several years back about a really tragic story that he was kind of bound open and he walked in carrying a camera and film to whole interview. Was part of this documentaries making about here so I don't know the final coats but I hope so. Yeah I mean that was pretty crazy because I remember you. Give me A. There's actually on a DVD like years ago about ten years ago right. Yeah I was definitely to share that film. It's a rarity really striking movie. Yeah maybe he wants to watch in the in the current climate. You might want something a little bit more lighthearted. Yeah yes save that one for the host. Cova date yet absolutely. So thanks to Huey thanks again to Greg and to run weather is available everywhere now so go check it out. It's vintage Huey Lewis and the news. We think you'll rarely if you're found the band maybe best if you stream for now. Yeah Yeah don't WANNA be heading down to your local record shop to you poor dope anyway. Okay so we hope you've enjoyed this first covert cast and we'll be back soon with another great guest. In the meantime stay say look after each other and will be with you very soon take care bye bye bridge.

They'd be cat-fighting. Every i also hear taylor takes her own shots while brittany. Has someone else do it for. Yeah incidentally the singer taylor swift has a new hit. Single out called you all me. She dedicates to cat hair. That'd be one of the reasons. Taytay can't keep a steady flow but then that would ruin her creative process. We are now one day away from opening day and major league baseball. As the san diego padres the arizona diamondbacks pad called pirate. Yes indeed tomorrow afternoon. Pitch one ten. This is a season of tremendously high expectations. Not only did. The padres make the playoffs for the first time in fourteen years last season. They've signed fernie tat.

Aren't they versus your teaching sports network. There's a a sleepiness a little chilly stickiness. Right under the surface. Sometimes sometimes out. They just slip. It's like the president's dog or something to see that the president's dog but someone's head off again. I think chris boyer should take that dog foster that dog. He's very good. He's he's he's like our own dog whispered all right. I'd give it a try tree. Would german shepherd pop. I'm sure you could get that dog right into credit into good good shape. Good animal to be around for everybody. Fearful animals will either be sure or aggressive and the apparently is taken that to aggression so build confidence. Chris bork takes dog to lick it before it sticks. Wouldn't that be a treat at the press corps lesson for us all majors gonna come out and lick it before he sticks lipstick.

He got sent away to that farm with the metal for all the dogs run for their lives and he returned like a week or two ago and but he someone again yesterday and he was immediately sent away again. Taught on what's going to happen. I can only imagine how much taxpayers are paying to have the dog reprogrammed plus all the work comp injuries from the employees who you know. We'll have recourse. They said that the person who got bitten. I don't know who it was. It was a white house. Staffer in an abundance of caution was treated by white house medical staff.

Yeah which all. Righty i know. And i've still got the scar. I've got a little that help. Not a callous. No i it's it's sort of a little joke. Zuber control jokes all over. You missed it. didn't you. But aid something important to say. Check this out reading post last night people who are sharing their wildest story. Michael put this one up. He says when. I was five years old. My dad was murdered in front of me in cold blood. It was intentional. I'm in my thirties. Now fast forward. I meet this girl at a music festival. This was pre covid as she was amazing. This blue eyed blond funny energetic perfect mate for me we hit it off all has been well until three nights ago. We were having dinner and we decided to share stories of our past and she starts telling me her dad story and it was strangely similar to my own and so the odd vibe continues. I ask more questions and she does too. And it's confirmed without a reasonable doubt that our dad's knew each other down to the neighborhood. They both lived in then she asks if she can text her dead and ask. How does he know my dad by name so i said textile and she did and daddy starts blowing up her phone. Saying where are you who are you with. Who's asking you this. Are you okay. Panicked questions and she starts to cry as she says. Daddy i'm fine but do you know this man. He says yes. I do so she puts him on speaker phone and he says baby. You remember when i told you. The daddy was arrested for witnessing a murder. That's the murder. I was there in that car when they opened fire and i saw that little boy who was in his dad's car o. So this guy. He's has been dating the daughter of the gang that murdered his dad. Twenty-five years previously she burst into tears. I grabbed the phone while she's panicking. And i said so you know me. I only have one question. Did you kill my father. And he said no. I didn't but i was with the people who did. I was very young. I was at the wrong place at the wrong time. My anger went through the roof and the girl was flipping out on her dad. So i call my mom. And i asked about the guy and she was shock. He was present because she knew him personally small world but he apologized said he was not involved in planning or even the execution he was just there he had no idea was even going to happen. Conversation ended next morning. We had breakfast to clear the air. We're still together but she no longer speaks to her father. Wow yeah. I mean if you're to believe the dad he's like i had nothing to do with this. I did is going to happen. I was run around with bad people obviously and That's unfortunate but now this girl isn't even talking to her dad while the process Well but she knew her father had been arrested for being present somewhere near a murder. So that wasn't a surprise. Yeah you're not arrested. If you're just a witness you're not if you're you're if you're in a car a bunch of people get an innocent by standing witness your mess if you're sitting in a car that's almost might be suspicion of being an accomplice or something right great. It feels like he was more of an unwitting accomplice. That's what he said and you will get arrested. I'm sure now you might not end up getting sentenced to anything. They might talkative few hours or maybe in a day or two but nonetheless. You're there right talk to you. And she didn't ask a lot of questions when she was younger and heard that he was arrested. Like oh i wanna know too about your past. Yeah but that's a little bit of a wild thing is like Do i choose to choose my father's side. Who is in the wrong place. At the wrong time he was a teenager. Made some stupid choices. Don't we all. And i'm not trying to mitigate how severe his stupid choices were but he did it so who side you take. And the story doesn't say anything about a conviction of someone who actually did kill and she could find that out maybe and maybe exonerate her own dad. Well she's saying she's not talking to her father little time process. Well what happens now thanksgiving. You don't bring home you don't you. Don't do anything ever with these two men together right now. Ever you wanna get married. Dad's not coming to the wedding. Do you continue this relationship with this guy. I would if that if he was a dream guy like he said they for hatton. The girls perfect so she's feeling the same way that's her future. I'm not going to let my dad's messed up past group. My future with this guy that i feel that i'm crazy about there is a future there. A that's a pickle isn't it lands Pursue or you could dump the guy start over. Hope you find another dream god. Yeah because they're just plentiful. Well i know chase taken and so it seems like there's nothing left true but i will remind you right there right there right there tom. Toms mr available. Chris boy now you can listen to the daca on your computer smartphone laptop or smart speaker. Just say hey google wake me up at six am to one point five kgb so we got news of a couple that got engaged on valentine's day period and sometimes you hear about guys who you know what's what's their involvement going to be in the wedding. I you have to get over the shock that is happening because a lot of times guys will be like all right. Let's get married. And then he gets shocked that within three seconds she starts planning the wedding. He's thinking there's going to be at least a couple of weeks of no talking about it. Not it doesn't work that who who made you think fat what david dumbness can't blame it on anything. But my own dumbness. But this guy is anxious to be part of the planning for the wedding. Great no no emily. What good dinner was made by two chefs. You need a shot. And then he's nobody instance to be right. There needs to be a boss right. Yeah there needs to be a boss of the wedding and everyone else is much much much lower on the rung of superiority flunkies certainly just flunkies. He got gordon ramsay and they're just a bunch of other quivering little peons right when you're making this dinner. Can you make a decent dinner. When there's two gordon ramsey's in the same kitchen. Probably not likely so. She's very excited because she wants to. Have a quote formal and glamorous wedding all right. She's got it in her head. She knows what she wants. Yes and you. i don't know. Did you come to work as a girl or a boy today. Don't know okay. Well you'd better be girl because we got battle of the sexes coming up in your plan for the women. You are a switch hitter. We might have to play for the fellas at some point. But do you know that. So many women have their wedding planned from the time. They're little girls sure. Was this your was this the case with you didn't think so. So when you and your husband agreed to be married. He had a whole plan. And you're just like whatever he's telling me to be there and what color shoes aware browner club. She has a plan formal glamorous. She's been dreaming of this. Since the day she was a little girl he too has a drink. Oh and he wants a themed wedding by themed from his favorite movie his favorite movie which is a love story and an adventure story. Okay i mean. I'm sure her. Glamorous wedding is dreamed up inspired by movies. Princess movies things like that. So that's not a princess in his princess in his movie. Great yes his movie his favorite movie that he wants to theme this movie or this wedding from has a princess it is adventure and it is a love story net. Now that's promising because for a lot of guys. Their favorite movie is like alien or terminator. Exactly or cars. Talk diehard diehard is a love story true it's also an adventure love story. He does love his wife. Api into the vase. But i'm sure you could now. This has his favorite movie has princesses. Royalty dole love adventure. Everything great abundance similar patriots. Seems like it also has a giant talking teddy bear. i see. I see the greatest movie franchise all times his once again. Look down on because we have your little fund. Have your little nerd jokes. He was the groomsmen to be dressed up as stormtroopers uh-huh he wants her to wear the cinnamon buns say she got to wear the gold lamb bikini but he wants her to look like princess. Leia princess yeah. It's up princess. What young girl doesn't dream of being a princess at her own wedding with two cinna bonds glued to the side of her head a giant teddy bear as the best man with stormtroopers ready to defend her honour from the dark side. Did they meet common as she on board with it. This her favorite movie as well issue on board with it. She's not on board with dick. Nothing nothing this guy could come up with the greatest idea in the world for a wedding and she would hate it because it wasn't her idea it has to be her idea or it has to be the idea of a wedding planner that she is hired at great expense. Probably hasn't got an original idea but just because it comes from a professional wedding planners mouthed it must be fantastic akron now. She apparently doesn't want here's much. Here's so much star wars. She wants at the wedding. Okay wants a star wars themed wedding. She wants nothing at all to do with star wars and the place. He went so far as to suggest a compromise. You plan one half the wedding. I'll plan one half the wedding. I'll let you do the wedding ceremony. I'll do the reception. She said no. I would prefer to do the entire thing. So he barked up the very lame niki to which we had to remind him. In other words this girl has made a huge mistake. She has got engaged to a guy who thinks that this is his wedding and he actually has ideas on how he wanted to go. He wants to be involved now. You know women only want their husbands to be involved in the wedding tour three times in the year that they're planning it and it's going to be on some lame ass stumm little detail that everyone's hung up on and once. This guy is so beaten and so crushed under her heels that he no longer has a pulse and can barely recognize human life. He's flatlined basically and she's gonna ask his opinion on something and he's going to be like i don't care whatever you want and she's gonna be just want you to show so nutritious than our wedding after he's been killed to death that's when she's gonna want him to show a little life eggs dramatic and this is plays out if you were a girl you'd know these things. She wants to handle the way the ceremony and reception. He is sticking to his desire by saying. This is my wedding to and i should get to decide at least half day. Who agrees with that. Saturday agree with that. No no. that's the bachelor party for landed away. Up stormtroopers differs freaking. Need to get it out of your system. What involvement does he get on the wedding day the evolvement she asks for the help he requests and if she wants none that means his involvement is a pretty cold. But wouldn't you rather hear the truth. Promise what do you think of that. How that be for you sir. Stormtroopers as the groomsmen. God what god brought in the thing is. You can't plan half of your wedding with something that she despises them. Hey if you wanted to plan something. You'd have to meet her halfway. You'd have to bring ideas that she didn't absolutely hey like she can't win a whole day of stuff. You're going to absolutely be against an eight. So that's the that's the problem if she hates and despises it then it cannot be. Mustn't they cannot be and it mustn't cannot be and it mustn't. My goodness stormtroopers darth vader officiating at the wedding. He looks like a grand priests her dressed up like princess laya. That is a princess love story with high. Adventure excitement dashing. Young men coming in to save you at your time of peril. It's everything you girls. I'm sorry you broads yeah are always yamen on and on about when we're just trying to get a little shy you don't go for any that Absolutely not it's a princess wedding. Put this up on it. You know what people are saying all on his side. I would so have so much fun at that wedding. I would think it was the funniest thing ever. I would little e walks walking down. The aisle. Little teddy bears get ready chainsaw. Next i heard sarah no involvement. What so ever unless i ask for your input and i won't just makes me sad for. Why don't we want if he's really excited about that. You've got him excited about a wedding. Let him spring little things for him. I don't believe in fifty fifty not really for theme now. No i don't believe in fifty fifty unless it's convenient for me. I didn't hate his compromise of the thirty section. Being themes right you know what happens fifty fifty. You know what happens at the reception. Then you know what his first idea is. Here's the song. I think we should dance to our first son. I wasted no more with anybody else on my own. Just rescue me this is. This is as beloved there. I saw here. I go on my own all alone no one else. I'm a hobo. The lonely street. Oh so long. I've ever known drifter yeah. I was born to walk alone. Goodbye these are the ideas the shining example guys come up with for the and sometimes they need to be retested other input today. Yeah i love when women like our partnerships fifty fifty.

Let's bring in these celebrated czar so many times people will say oh famous people they always die in threes. Well that's only if there are no rules that is the job of the death. Czar first of all was determined. Was it really a celebrity. Secondly we have to put a window time limit because otherwise of course it comes in threes. Chris determines first and foremost was the person celebrity and secondly three of them die in a window of ten days. Is that right. Celebrity deaths are. Yes sir i present to you. G gordon liddy the mastermind of the ope white house. I'm sorry watergate break in for the then resident of the white house president nixon. Why do you call them. A mastermind did it. Did it come off seamlessly and perfectly like a mastermind or was it bungled and foiled. He had a masterful of getting in to defeat the magnetic locking system he had a giant de gassing coil how many masterminds have their plots foiled and go to jail for it. Well you only about the ones who fail. You never hear about the ones who succeed. So i don't think that's true at in any way shape or form. Well in this case he did go to jail. They're the architects of d day. Their master-plan succeed will ultimately asked but there were some sacrifices made by many of the participants. They knew that that was going to happen. And do we not know that. On june sixth every year we recognize the liberation of europe. Yes sir mastermind plan. Yes data gone the other way. I don't think they'd call them masterminds. Yeah curious usage of the term There could have been anything that would have thrown the d day. plans off. Bad weather was certainly a concern. See they were successful. They they were success. I think is critical to being called mastermind. The intended mastermind watergate break in at the democratic national party headquarters that was ultimately foiled. Bright and gordon liddy g gordon liddy what does the g. stanford it's actually stands for gordon. It's gordon gordon liddy. That's incorrect george. I never used it. He never used gerald himself. Gordon yeah he. He called me at my house one night. Well he was on our show. Yes he was. He called me at my house. One night though. When you get a phone call you're just making stakes for your friends and your phone rings and you're just hanging out with your friends and you've had a couple how this garden leading this and i knew the guy because he worked in our building with us but he's very intimidating as you know personal experience and he was calling. Give me out of the blue financial advice. We talked for about five minutes. He was charming. He was pleasant. He was always polite. And i hung up and i said that was gordon liddy and my french. Like who's gordon liddy. Someone from your meetings. I was like you don't know who gordon liddy is no more. I've got morons on my team. Well gordon is on my team. As i welcome in to Celebrity death heaven. Along with george segal. The window closes on the first of april at tomorrow to all right. Very good and do you consider. His mastermind is the greatest professional accomplishment in his a celebrity world. His ability to keep a secret is pretty incredible offered to allow himself to be killed. I can't tell if you answered. My question did not did not so now. you don't consider. what do you consider. Greatest concerts his dedication that He offered his life. he's forgotten has just. I was in the movie. He was in. The movie was in the mood. And he's forgotten. That gordon ladies. Greatest accomplishment was. His appearance in are moving incredibly slipshod of may. I apologize profusely not accept because that's where we are. Yeah we don't accept apologies. Gordon liddy he was also an idea man for the nixon people and some of his ideas were like. I don't think so. He wanted to have antiwar protesters kidnapped and shipped in crates down to mexico turning the republican convention which was here in san diego he wanted to he wanted to have democrat high ranking democrat national committee members lured onto a house boat party that was going to be populated with prostitutes and have their pictures taken. How and Besmirched their reputations and again the nixon people none and now we go. What if we had your break into a psychiatrist's office. Beat the crap out of a filing cabinet things like that. That's the kind of thing don't think is a good idea. And next thing you know. Poor guys in jail any personal encounter from gordon liddy that you wanted to sure only that. I was shy about him when you approached him to be in our movie. I said what if what if you know. I have a script al written out and remember how you Did a lighter to prove how tough you are to hold your palm over the lighter and hold held over like thirty seconds to show how tough are. What if you did that now. What we say well break into the mayor's office and steal anything we want. Okay you wit in with facts from his past and nervous about suggested john and he was like let's go over the top for when i'm famous for was all in all that guy and he was super fun to hang out there and he lived to the ripe old age of ninety that chris puts them in celebrity on his arm.

Petco park will be filled to only twenty percent of capacity. Voyeurs girlfriend. Not gonna do that. That would be a cheap joke. And i'm above that the nfl announced yesterday. Lucy and we'll go from sixteen to seventeen regular season games which is not going over really well with the players because for the moment anyway they won't be paid anymore and teams are annoyed. Since with seventeen games not every team will have an equal amount of home. Games might be eight home games in nine away or the other way around a little unfair right.

So we're going to let you know some of the places you can score free food. But it's also a day that i go into much suspicion. Are you sure about this including to portland very berry. Suspicious of them. Do they know what they're doing. What are they doing. Tell me they have claimed they will be giving away one hundred thousand dollars in free burritos and one hundred thousand dollars in bitcoin. Do they know how much that is do. They know what day tomorrow is right. That's what i'm saying. I'm super suspicious. That they've announced it for tomorrow. I would like to point out that while tomorrow is a great day. The greatest national holiday of the mall. April fool's day and it's our anniversary that what's important about an april fool's day joke. You do it on april fools day. Did you see what. Volkswagen did the parental leave. I don't even know what that means now. I had backup wrong from. Chris boyer knows that super school. The no no wrong wrong prince my heart. Volkswagen what's broken your heart these worthless characters about whom you're going to reveal all you're a big fan of volkswagen. You have a heavy hopped the barbershop. Bunny car which is why this breaks my heart. Volkswagon is like all manufacturers making a big move into electric cars and they released a little news leaked that they're going to change the name of their company. Two volts wagon -bio lts it volkswagen and people started freaking out and then they came back is it never just kidding. April fools is like it's not april fools day until tomorrow rate so these lame masses who attempt and april fools joke on any day other than april first lay masses. I agree and it wouldn't be likely that you'd fall for a lame ass and they're lame ass joke on a day other than april first so the best thing to do is just disregard. These people got you buttered up over there exactly that that. Volkswagen failed so miserably in their attempt at an april fools. God data calendar can't even accommodate for the difference in the international dateline. This way you're just fool. They came out and said it was all on april fools day joke and that they were going to tell everybody that was in april. Fool's day joke. Just kidding on march thirty first. So are you going to pull off the joke and then tell everyone joke before april first even hit blame super super line know the rules. People understand the rules. Beauty the joy. The personal reward is pulling off a joke on a day when everyone knows they should be on their guard. No one's under guard on march thirtieth great. Because that's the day that lame ass is run around doing. They're lame ass stuff. What else lots of dogs stories bite speu and crime fighting dog coming up and We'll have updates on some of the heavier stuff going on in the world. Kobe trials the witnesses yesterday at the guys night derek. Chauvin at his trial got yelled at by the judge and strongly spoken to. I should say not yelled at sternly spokesman.

Even though he was obviously in distress the judge took exception with how jennifer was answering her questions and the jury way and had this exchange with her one a advising you do not argue with council and it's specifically do not argue with the court.

San diego had a slight uptick in the number of county residents and allies. We go. we're not gonna get orange They are worried about a fourth wave. don't actually have our positivity rate there were two hundred and twenty seven new cove as is but i don't know what that that's a lot percentage wise is hospitalizations increased and Our icu though was unchanged from sunday's count. More california counties are progressing to the tier and there are talks about Seeing rising cases throughout the county though we have uc davis infectious disease. Expert dr dean bloomberg. Who says when covid rates drop and people start becoming complacent. That's when we see that uptick number two. I'm concerned that word. Not to use the word uptick. You have a had a tick up in me and it just reminds me every time when you say and i think you know it. I think you're doing it to hurt me. I would never be hurtful concerned that there may be another way. It's really difficult to predict the future. Of course what we've seen before is when we thought that we were getting out of this that we have had waves on your balls pal called black purple. He reminds us all to continue using safety. Protocols like mass and distancing california has vaccinated three point five million income residents and once. That number gets to four million which could happen as soon as next week. San diego will move into the orange tier based on previous numbers. Even though the county doesn't currently qualify. Here's flach he put down his waits to talk to us. I was working you call. Yeah whatever you wanna talk about. The state hits four million vaccines administered in the healthy places indexes core tile that changes the match for the orange tier and to go into the orange tier you would need to consecutive weeks with a case rate of five point nine or less so all. That's pretty simple right. There caught anyone recognizing any english speaking words in that thing just now no state were to hit that threshold and we were able to keep our case rate where it is now or lower for two consecutive weeks than we would be able to descend into the orange tier back. Spotted me now. So i can work by dell cords brawl. Thanks brawl comb and dippy do all right. what else. Biden's major has been involved in another biting incident that required medical attention. just snipped. he just snipped took place involved in national park service. Employee took place on me white house south lawn monday afternoon. The employee was working at the time and needed to stop in order to receive treatment from the white house unit The first lady's press secretary saying major still adjusting to his new surroundings. And yes he nipped someone to the left leading media ever protective of the president are all calling it a nip. I thought we were against anti asian. Hate crimes this week. Let's drop that and just go back to bite ya. Yeah i got my eyes and wide. Yeah let's see here. He received training and but apparently doesn't fault. Now then they were giving him biting training which case plus and then one of the dogs but they don't know it was champ or major on the floor of the white house today. oh well you know. They're blaming each other. no they're both gone. Joe stop could be unless they do. A dna test will always be suspicious molly. How dare you suggest that. The president pooped on the floor of the white house. Sir they did say witnesses save major was on a leash champions not but slowly and stiffly the train himself to be indicative of recently dropping one. Don't slowly and stiffly. i'm the other way around all right. Let's go ready for a run freedom. Freedom i'm holding an in before i go. That's what we know that right. Come nothing trying to throw shade on champ because majors had enough. I'm not sure what's going on. They're not gonna rub the president's nose in joe bad enough that you are a rude terrible person. I'm sorry trump never pooped in the white house. What else act takes. His families crediting their eight-year-old year. Old dog marlee with saving them after an intruder broke into their home. So this suspect entered the house or an unlocked back door armed with the in the middle of the night. Marley jumped into action biting the intruder. Marley enforcing them into a corner. Number four was pitch black so we couldn't see anything only could hear marley and once. He flipped the hall light on. We realized that the guy was holed up in the corner trying hide so ambers husband rushed to confront the intruder and was stabbed arm. And that's when the Suspect was able to escape. It was found by police hiding in nearby creek number five. She's already if it hadn't been for her. That guy could have gone into to their rooms or two year old or sixteen four findlay and sadie were shaken by the incident. They're staying with relatives not sure when they'll feel safe returning to their home. Well we could start by locking the door. That would be helpful suggestion. Sorry chris i know that's up to you to scold people after the fact. Step on your toes though. You did an excellent job okay. This is taken into custody charged with animal cruelty and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. What's the animal cruelty. Did marley get hurt unknown. But i think just because he had a knife marley and the husband. He got stabbed. That's why he got assault with a aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Or what did he have. He's going to jail clock those doors. Okay what else. Then in another dog story. There was a woman lizzie. Who recently mashed with the guy until tender but the guy thinks she was more into his box just friendly not an dirty way just like oh. She was really a life that he was a dog owner so he suggested a dog walk for their first date and a few minutes into their date. The dog jumped into the river. Lizzy jumped right in after his dog while the guy just stood there giving useless suggestions so she was able to rescue his dog. They walked for a few more minutes. She was covered in mud. And so she said you know what. I'm gonna go home. The guy texts were later to check on and to apologize for not being more helpful but she has not responded turkey. One dog walking dayton on a first date. I mean again like having to head chefs in the same kitchen. ever try. tell a boy or anything about how to raise a dog. Forget it you're wrong. I don't wanna hear it Walk your dog pass boyer. You're doing it wrong. Forget it I don't know but when you want to see if your dog liked the person don't they say dogs can sense of someone's got bad character. I'm i concerned about whether i sense that i liked the person okay. Yeah dog will be fine but if she really was like. Oh my gosh. You're dug dorbyl. Okay yeah let's bring the dow's along. I don't know i have never bought a dog on a date from trying to imagine if she was fawning over the dog and the photos and then and talk to. She didn't like the way the guy was dealing with his dog. And she jump in the rescue dog one just trying to cool off and go for a swim swim She say she said the dog jumped into the river. Like the dog knew what it was doing and she decided own all the dogs dying and decided to go all human rescue on the dog. The dog announced when circles around this. You know if the dog had fallen in the river and was like losing losing to the current. Then i'd be like okay. I get it My dog can't keep them out of rivers. He'd loves going so she misread the dog. It's do you think about that board. I think she's an idiot all right there. We got the dog. I if you if you have to doglovers good. I disagree on how to walk. The dog disciplined the dog. The dog should be allowed to do. They're going to be read in the dogs signals instead of trying to read each other signals to be. Now it's a four person date basically doglovers like animals more than people if you bring your dog on a date. You like your dog more than the girl on the day Not that committed to the relationship while you're in third place at best at best component boyer automatically thinks. You're an idiot that i mean there's a thing called dog paddle if actually a of propulsion named ask her a dog and the water. He's right. The dog is is more competent swimmer than you. And you look like a fool jumping into the muddy sluice and she's trying to save face and either just it's bad. It's not a good plan. Yeah yeah it's not good for a day.

They're announcing that they got a joke a prank coming. They're announcing and promotion. I think it's going to be a big fat free. They don't see how they're possibly pulling it off. Family doesn't buy it all of the dnc eighty five in santee today eighty five and l. home tomorrow to home now san diego back into the sixties for two weeks so enjoy today utah.

Which we've talked about is annoying when people don't do it on the day of did a video of it. I watched this yesterday. And i was surprised to see him getting rid of something. That's kind of like a signature. Totally is the his And i was. I'd never really paid attention to it. I knew he had the gap. But it's it's big report like a pencil in that gap very pronounced. It is and he just tweeted like last week. I always proud. He loves his gap. He's proud of something like that. I rocked my gap. With pride. I think is what it said. So here's my advice to michael strahan if he gets rid of his gap for april fools day. First of all you did it before april fools day. This is stupid. It's not cool. And i refuse to give anybody credit for doing pre april fool's day jokes Secondly study good. April fools day joe. It's just stupid. Whatever also national burrito day alone to poland is doing a promotion in honor of national burrito day. But because it's also april fool's day and what they're saying they're doing. I'm just instantly suspect. So they say not only will they be giving away one hundred thousand dollars and free britos now. They might actually do that but they also say they're giving away one hundred thousand dollars in bitcoin too. How much money. It is one hundred thousand. Us dollars in bitcoins. Two hundred thousand dollars. That's how much it is. But what's your. What's your puzzled. The equival i see what you're saying. Now i get it but still it. Just don't believe they're actually going to do it They are teaming up with that guy who has locked away his hard drive and they're making you earn it. You have to try to crack the case to win the prize. And there's three twenty five thousand dollar prizes and fifty fans can win up to five hundred dollars if you'll if you'll do all the work in her bitcoin. S fishy isn't it.

It's a disaster from experience no speaking from authorities. What else do you enjoy. Costco salmon burgers. I never tried osama number. Just will not your close minded to your wiser. I like fish looking like a piece of fish not a mushed up patty rights. I don't go for those. Okay okay. I heard the yesterday referred to beef jerky as cowl raisins interesting. That's very clever down for fish burgers I only brought up case. You did have the cosco pacific salmon burgers. They're being recalled because they contain small pieces of metal. So if you do have the short okay take them back oregon. So that's they're still own posted some handwritten notes for a rocky. tv show. he's developing for Yeah what's going to happen this new movie sly a sad story. Matic yes handwriting. Look like oh my goodness four guy. Boros keep together here all right. He says it'll be a prequel set in the sixties. Ideally it's ten episodes for few seasons to get to the heart of the characters in their younger years and he also would like to do the same for rambo. Do what with rambo do an origin. Yeah okay yes. Game of thrones is heading to broadway also be pre coolish pre. What pre quill issue prequel. Okay what else. I think this would work for on them. But i'm not sure this would work for anyone else here. A woman in england. We'll maybe boy was surprised to find a love letter on her is on out of the hospital yet. Her vagina stolen traction. Hope she home. Sch- okay got that update. Yeah so there was a path of destruction from which they'll never recover. She did for doctors to pull that baby out of her literally.

She threw the hotdogs way but she got a good laugh about it and it had her father would not throw anyone talk away. What else there cops in clam lake township michigan who spotted a car on the shoulder of the highway and the lights were often so they approach to see what was going on and when they walked up to the car the guy in the front seat traded duck outta sight the cops asked him for his name and he gave them a fake name. he's not the infamous clam lake murderer lake linger this genius criminal. Though the fake name he gave him was the name of an actual person who had felony warrants out for them more trouble than he was in right and so when they ran the name and they got ready to arrest in. They searched to him. They found twenty seven grams of meth on him a lot. I guess got boyer's attention when they got to jail. They took his fingerprints found out. His real identity found more drugs on him and he's being wait a minute. They found moron. Where were they did. They didn't tell but they didn't find it till wallet up often his clam. He's facing charges for math. And then lying to an officer stupidly stupidly. Adlide very bad lie. Anything else couple of a guys were drinking. And one of friends suffered an injury and couldn't walk so the other friend decided. I'm gonna take you to the hospital myself. But i don't have a car i can drive so let still a front end loader and put you in the bucket in the front and then drive ten blocks to the hospital x. Perfect sense like this perfect sense. Some cops happened to be at the hospital and watch them poland and then he blocked the ambulance bay so paramedics were stuck and get in or out. his blood. Alcohol level was twice the legal limit and he had a bottle of liquor on 'em along with some pot and he was driving a suspended license from a previous dui. He's facing charges of drunk. Driving drugs and felony theft uphill. Climb for that. If i got into a front loader. I wouldn't know how to operate that thing. I just be moving all the levers to see what it does. An i labeled on on the inside. I don't know every time. I've walked past one at a construction site. It just looks like a bunch of lovers with no indication on them whatsoever. What they right similar to a car. It's not like the pedal says break and guess and the no it doesn't then in d like if you don't know what those letters stand for good point you're just guessing so zoom that they're similarly labeled you have the knowledge to operate on their keys is that are you. Start those things they. It seems the experience that i've had is. Caterpillar has kind of two or three keys and the other medic komatsu couple of different keys. But it's not like it's a one in ten thousand car you've got one or two keys that will operate any of that caterpillar equipment because you see them parked for days weeks on end at a construction site. And i don't know some johnny front end loader got keys in his pocket and he shows up and just knows how to operate the thing. I don't know that stuff works. Think these guys would lose the case. Frankly right trust people like that with come on. No that's why you have just two or three keys and runs everything i see cop. Cars probably have four or five different keys and that's about it. Wait what do you mean like if you have a key if you're a cop and you have a key to a crown vic it pro crown vic. Yeah mean afford. Yeah okay it probably fits most of the other crown vics on the lot you mean one cop car key will run all the other cop cars most of them. I didn't know that there was wiser. His there was a problem. Where cops were had a job issue at i don't know if he was in san diego but they showed up and red lights and siren parked. The cars left them locked them and went off with their picket signs. And so now you've got what happened. I don't know but we were talking about construction. And then he said it's like a cops car. So i feel like he owes us a dollar for this tangent at the end of this llosa dollar. But you're saying that a cop gets back to the office. Yeah red lights and sirens going shuts off the car with all that stuff on right now. We there was a labor dispute and okay. Does this happen recently. Or is this all from nine hundred seventy four. This is why they all have. Is this l. From nine hundred seventy four. Yes in this saying you. Why did i get suckered into your fifty year old story again because the cops lock their cars red lights and sirens running and then they had to find the key which one is which one is which one is it. Okay so this is not true. None of this applies episode in so he just assumed it really happened. Dollar hardest earned dollar. It really was all right. I don't even know what happened. I feel like alien lost time. And i mean to nap now wasn't tired but are you making change over there. Keep an eye on him. Keep an eye on him. Like many starts going in there. Start money money out. I don't believe him much is in there now. I don't know how the other day how much was in there the other day i i. I don't have a tally. Happy to count it for you.

The manufacturers for the equipment each have specific key for each manufacturer. So you're telling me that one key doesn't fit most other front end loaders. So one key for a cat will start any capital equipment. One keeper. Komatsu will start any commodities equipment. That's exactly what i said. That is what he said you know. He said two or three keys.

The girls here on the show. Mostly emily staunchly again. This is a good lesson for you. Young couples who are just starting life together if your fiancee. The lady is feeding you this tripe about how. We're fifty fifty. Everything we do is split decision. Ask her if she'd like for you to take over fifty of the wedding plan.
