Music Interviews

Not long after launching ClassicRockMusicBlog.com, I tracked down a long silent singer/songwriter from the 1970s named Stu Nunnery, who agreed to an interview.

The album found its way onto turntables and radio airwaves across North America, as two singles, “Fight The Good Fight” and “Magic Power,” powered the power trio to new heights. […]
