ON THE ROAD with 
'ROCK THE YACHT TOUR 2019'
DOUBLE CD RELEASE ENTITLED 'ECLECTIC'
There are songs you hear in your life that transport you to a certain time period or give you a special feeling.  You associate those good times to the group that made them famous.  Songs like “I’d Really Love To See You Tonight,” “Nights Are Forever Without You” and “Love Is The Answer” have that kind of effect on people. Those songs and numerous others have made John Ford Coley a singing legend. He has spent decades touring, writing, recording, and producing.

John is most revered as half of the Grammy nominated duo England Dan and John Ford Coley. He continues with an active roster performing the platinum and gold record hits for audiences around the world. Classically trained on piano and an avid guitarist, John loves the craft and enjoys every audience he encounters.
John recorded a live album while he was on tour in the Philippines with many of the hits while also recording a CD entitled “The Best of John Ford Coley.” John’s most recent CD is entitled “Eclectic” and contains all new material for an acoustic/Americana album available now at amazon .com
 “I’d Really Love To See You Tonight” appeared in the film "Long Kiss Goodnight" with Geena Davis and Samuel L. Jackson and his and England Dan Seals’ song “Simone” was featured in the HBO Series “Vinyl” where two actors portray John and Dan in the studio singing the song.
In between the extensive road duty, John lives in the Nashville area as well as the Charleston, SC area with his family, where he's penned a book on his years in the music industry entitled “Backstage Pass.”

CELEBRATING 50 YEAR ANNIVERSARY
with reunion, new double album & worldwide tour 
EXCLUSIVE

We put the old band back together to CELEBRATE the 50th ANNIVERSARY of NEKTAR!

Nektar: The Legendary Rock Band are recording a new album! This is the first new studio album made in the United States since 1977!!
We put the old band back together to CELEBRATE the 50th ANNIVERSARY of NEKTAR!

The original members of Nektar; Derek “Mo” Moore, Ron Howden, and Mick Brockett are back. We’ve added Ryche Chlanda from Fireballet and the 78′ band, Randy Dembo from the 2005 band, and newcomer and world-class keyboard player, Kendall Scott.
The music for our new album “The Other Side” comes from the 1978 era when we were writing in Mo’s basement in Chatham, New Jersey. This music was put on pause for the last 40 YEARS and it’s now time to release it with new input and fresh ideas. The music is growing exponentially as we continue rehearsing and writing and letting it take us to new heights.

Nektar has started a Kickstarter campaign to fund the recording of the new album!
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nektarmusic/nektars-new-studio-album-the-other-side
Nektar's contribution over the last 49 years has quite rightly earned them their place in any 'Progressive Rock Hall of Fame'. But the band is much more than a 'Prog Legend', the Nektar brand of innovative composition, performance and visuals is simply unique. 
Nektar's history appeared to have been written when they finally split in the early eighties. Despite attempts to re-kindle the flame, the Nektar light, it seemed, was out . . . . until that is, the year 2000. 
The new millennium saw the long-awaited reunion tour of the classic line up, to rave reviews and fantastic receptions. The light we thought was out, had in fact been kept aglow - by loyal fans across the globe. 

Sixteen years on and the family has grown a little, but the classic Nektar spirit is still very much alive, building on the band's rediscovered popularity. The Nektar family is determined to continue bringing Nektar music to you around the world.

ROLLING STONES SINGER BERNARD FOWLER CHATS ABOUT 'THE STONES' AND HIS NEW SOLO RELEASE ON INTERVIEWING THE LEGENDS W/RAY SHASHO BBS RADIO

B E R N A R D 
F O W L E R
SINGER with T H E  R O L L I N G  S T O N E S
RELEASES NEW SOLO ALBUM 
ENTITLED 
'I N S I D E   O U T'
with SPECIAL GUESTS
“It’s Rolling Stones songs deconstructed,” says Bernard Fowler, explaining the title of his new album Inside Out.  “I just took these songs and turned them inside-out.”
Bernard Fowler has another gig too: he’s sung and played percussion with the Rolling Stones, on stage and in the studio, since 1988.  At soundcheck somewhere along their 2015 Zip Code tour, he started riffing on a Stones song as dramatically delivered spoken-word — and the band dug it.  “Mick said, ‘Bernard, I’ve heard Rolling Stones songs done a lot of ways but never like this,’” Fowler recalls.  “I said, ‘Well, you know what?  When the tour is over, I’m going to cut it.’  And he said, ‘You should.’  That’s all I had to hear.  That was the green light.”


    And that’s how it came to be that one of rock and pop’s most sought-after singers doesn’t sing a note on his new record.
    Lots of people have celebrated Keith Richards’ iconic riffs, Mick Jagger’s trademark howl-and-strut, and the Rolling Stones’ blazing live show, but there’s never been such a thoughtful, soul-baring and thoroughly original appreciation of the band’s lyrics.  In order to do that, Fowler pared away the chord changes and even the melodies and left only the words, then declaimed them like the world’s coolest preacher atop slammin’ grooves powered by a who’s who of crackerjack players.  It’s not quite singing, but only a peerless vocalist could pull it off so powerfully, his incantations seething with righteous anger, foreboding and desire.   
    That strong feeling of back-in-the-day New York is where the autobiography comes in.  Growing up in New York City’s predominantly black and Puerto Rican Queens Bridge Projects, Fowler listened to a lot of funk and R&B.  Maybe that’s why Inside Out is laced with references to touchstones like James Brown (“Dancing with Mr. D”), War and the Chambers Brothers (“Time Waits for No One”), Curtis Mayfield (“Sister Morphine”) and any number of ‘70s funkateers.  And it just so happens that the first record Fowler’s dad ever gave him was 12 x 5 — the second album by up-and-coming British R&B combo the Rolling Stones.  
   
        The full-band tracks feature top-shelf players: long-time Stones bassist Darryl Jones, former Miles Davis drummer/producer Vince Wilburn, Jr., guitarist George Evans and pop/R&B session heavyweight Michael Bearden on piano.  Drummer Clayton Cameron, renowned as “the Brush Master,” added extra texture.  Then Fowler called in guitarist Ray Parker, Jr.  “He came over, plugged in and started playing,” says Fowler, “and I was screaming.  Everybody was screaming.  He was killing it.  Killing it.”  Listen for Parker’s work on “Time Waits for No One” and “Sister Morphine.”
    Inside Out demonstrates what cover versions are supposed to be: reinterpretations that are not only a vehicle for personal expression, but also put the material in a new light.  “People hear their favorite songs all the time — but sometimes they don’t really hear them,” Fowler says.  “This is a way to hear them all over again and appreciate them in a whole new way.”  But the beauty of Inside Out is that it provides an opportunity to appreciate Bernard Fowler in a whole new way too.

Featuring guest appearances by Cherie Currie, James Williamson, Wayne Kramer, Brian Auger, Sylvain Sylvain, Walter Lure, Arthur Adams, Big Joe Louis & others!

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW
The unsung heart and soul of the Motor City rock & roll scene, Mitch Ryder was simply one of the most powerful vocalists to rise to fame in the '60s, a full-bodied rock belter who was also one of the most credible blue-eyed soul men of his generation. He first made a nationwide impression fronting Mitch Ryder & the Detroit Wheels, whose fiery R&B attack boasted a gritty passion and incendiary energy matched by few artists on either side of the color line. After exploding onto the charts in 1966 and 1967 with singles like "Jenny Take a Ride" and "Devil with a Blue Dress On/Good Golly Miss Molly," and "Sock It to Me Baby!"



After wowing audiences with a rollicking Christmas-themed release at the close of 2018, the icon of Detroit rock and soul, Mitch Ryder, returns with this superb collection of all-new recordings – Detroit Breakout! The album celebrates both the music of Detroit as well as the classic, timeless songs of Ryder’s generation. From a smokin’ new version of Ryder’s own blockbuster hit single “Devil With A Blue Dress On” to The Capitols’ “Cool Jerk” to Otis Redding’s “(Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay, Detroit Breakout! has something for every true rock n’ roller including special guest performances by fellow Motor City alumni James Williamson of The Stooges and Wayne Kramer of MC5 as well as blues legends Joe Louis Walker and Arthur Adams PLUS the New York Dolls’ Sylvain Sylvain, The Runaways’ Cherie Currie, daughter of B.B. King, Shirley King and more! Detroit Breakout is available now at amazon.com.

MY WILD RIDE AS A 
ROCK AND ROLL LEGEND

By MITCH RYDER

Mitch also uses his book as a platform to express his still simmering rage at the music industry as a whole and at individuals such as Bob Crewe, Robert Stigwood, and Bud Prager, that screwed him over and damaged his career. 

Ryder learned much about himself during his journey into the heart of darkness and has emerged triumphant on his own terms as a result.
