[Posted by Adam Forrest on Tuesday, 10/15/13 4:17 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
Ken Michaels' recent interview with Julian Lennon discussing his latest album "Everything Changes" can now be found on Ken's website www.kenmichaelsradio.com. Ken is the host of the weekly syndicated Beatles radio show "Every Little Thing," and his website features interviews with many people connected to the Fab Four-musicians, authors, and family members.
"Julian was a joy to talk to," Ken says. "He is very honest and candid about his life and career. I enjoyed talking to him about a variety of subjects, the songwriting process, a few of his collaborators, his songwriting influences, the beginning of his career, and what is was like to work with legendary producer Phil Ramone."
What are Ken's favorite moments of the interview? "For one thing, Julian voluntarily brought up the possibility of touring again, and how he would do it, which might surprise you. Also, discussing the introspective lyrics of some of his songs, in particular "Guess It Was Me." He also tells an incredible story of how the opening lyrics from "Baby You're A Rich Man" came to be used in the new song "Someday" with Steven Tyler."
Ken feels that "Everything Changes" is probably the finest album of Julian's career. "His incredible gift for melody, very personal and insightful lyrics, and impeccable production all make for a thoroughly enjoyable album. Every song was very crafted and thought out. It's as close to perfect an album as they come. The album was first released in 2011, now reissued with 2 new tracks."
Ken's website now features a treasure trove of interviews-including recent ones with Steve Holley (former Wings drummer), renowned Beatles author Mark Lewisohn, Billy J. Kramer, Rex Fowler (Nutopians, Aztec Two Step), Jeff Slate (Birds of Paradox-band featuring members of Wings and Elephants Memory), and archival interviews with Sid Bernstein and Tony Sheridan. Plus there's even Beatles trivia and prizes given out every week. Check them out at www.kenmichaelsradio.com.
