Episode 50: 'Rising' with Ian Haugland
Manage episode 295059444 series 1231613
The 50th episode of 'My Classic Album' is here and it's jam packed like no other! Ian Haugland, drummer of Swedish rock legends Europe joins Mike to discuss our 50th classic album, Rainbow's 'Rising'.
A union including the likes of Ritchie Blackmore, Ronnie James Dio and Cozy Powell was too much for a young Ian Haugland to resist. Together Ian and Mike explore the impact 'Rising' had not only on themselves but the development of hard rock and heavy metal as a whole!
What unique process did Rainbow use to audition drummers including Cozy Powell?
How did keyboardist Tony Carey react when Ian played him the intro to 'Tarot Woman' on his own radio show?
Is 'Stargazer' the genesis of metal's relationship with fantasy?
PLUS: Enjoy a track from Europe's most recent album 'Walk The Earth'
