The Aftershow — Brian’s take on Davey Johnstone's Legacy, Elton John and the Her Majesty The Queen
2395
Producer Mandi Wimmer gets Brian’s take on Davey Johnstone's legacy to Rock n' Roll with the perfect union of Elton’s remarkable singing and piano playing and Dave’s masterful guitar riffs that lead to so many hits. They chat about how its possible for Elton to go from very shy to larger than life on stage and the importance “trust” plays in longevity of bands. Not to be missed, they cover two hysterical stories about the times Brian met Her Majesty The Queen, once standing next to Elton John cracking jokes and the other next to Ozzy Osborn. They wrap up with the great bonding moment Brian had with Etta James, what do when things go horribly wrong on stage and how to adjust to “normal” life after a long tour.  For behind the scenes photos from these interviews and to send us questions for the Aftershow, join us on social media at: @OnTourPod on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter On Tour is a production of Black Barrel Media and iHeartRadio, for more information about On Tour please visit our website at: BlackBarrelMedia.com Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com

Orianthi on tour with Michael Jackson and Alice Cooper
3648
Brian Ray sits down with Orianthi Panagaris as they go deep into her final days rehearsing with Michael Jackson just before he passed, her time backstage and on stage at the Grammys with Carrie Underwood, her crazy encounters with possessed elevators, swords, and boa constrictors while touring with Alice Cooper and that time a rabbit almost stood in the way of her record deal with Jimmy Iovine at Interscope Records.  Though Orianthi has a booming solo career and has played on stage with the greatest musicians of all time, her story wasn't always so glamorous, we learn how she grew up being bullied in Australia for her dream to be a musician, but her perseverance paid off when she found herself spontaneously on stage with Carlos Santana as a teenager.  Check out Orianthi’s music at: https://iamorianthi.com Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com
