Meltdown on WRIF

Weekdays 3:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

Mick was around at the beginning of heavy metal. He said at first they just called it classic rock. “When you think back to those early days, there wasn’t any stigma attached to being classic rock, ya know.” Mick went on to talk about the diverse musical tours they did back in the 70s….and that’s just for starters on this great conversation.

The new Uriah Heep album is out and it’s called Chaos & Colour. He told me about the album, how the pandemic played into it, and why they got Jay Ruston to produce it again. He talks about rock cruises, what caused him to pick up a guitar in the first place, and even a story about his first guitar.

He also spoke of the late Jeff Beck. “I love everything that Jeff did. He was my favorite all time guitarist”. He meet Jeff a few times “He was a lovely guy.” He told me he never learned any of his licks because he was so much of a fan. He told me about knowing Randy Rhoads.
