Huey Lewis Celebrates Sports 30th Anniversary In The Studio
The show sent over these details: By the early Eighties, the music business had long established a formula where, by the third album, a recording artist was expected to go big or go home.
With Sports, Huey Lewis & the News went big. Really, really big. #1 sales big, 71 weeks on the Billboard charts, four Top 10 hit singles big, including "Heart and Soul", "If This is It", "The Heart of Rock'n'Roll" and "I Want a New Drug".
Huey is taking a thirtieth anniversary victory lap around the U.S. right now, and shares with InTheStudio host Redbeard what the mindset of the band was 30+ years ago, and remains today.
"There were a few of us who were over 25, dare I say it, or even over 30 who still liked to rock. And just because you weren't running around stealing cars didn't mean you weren't a real rock'n'roller." Stream the episode here.
