The all-new star-studded series, MIXTAPE, is coming to AXS TV on September 12th! Each week, a rock & roll icon will be sharing their favorite songs and their own personal “mixtape” with you. We’ll find out about the meaning behind the music that helped to shape their lives and their legendary careers. For our inaugural season, we’re enlisting the help of members from the biggest bands in classic rock, rock & roll heartthrobs, and even an award-winning actor. Meet all of our guests below and get ready for the series premiere of MIXTAPE September 12th at 8:30/7:30c only on AXS TV!
Since the mid-70s, Foreigner has been rocking across the world, earning #1 hits in multiple countries and a ranking as one of the world’s best-selling bands of all time with more than 80 million records sold. On the series premiere of MIXTAPE, we’re sitting down with one of the bands founding members, Mick Jones, and current vocalist, Kelly Hansen, who has been singing with the band since March of 2005.
You probably know REO Speedwagon because one of their 13 Top 40 hits or by seeing one of the hundreds of shows that they put on every single year. Two members of the band, vocalist Kevin Cronin and guitarist Dave Amato, will be joining us on MIXTAPE to share some personal stories about their time with REO. They’ll talk about all of the songs that influenced them and their careers, including the moment Kevin Cronin first saw The Beatles on the Ed Sullivan show and realized THAT is exactly what he wanted to do.
Rick Springfield started out in a pop-rock group called Zoot before hitting #1 with his mega-hit of the 80s, “Jessie’s Girl”. He earned a Grammy Award for Best Male Rock Vocal performance and racked up four more top ten hits, two top 10 albums, and an iconic role as Dr. Noah Drake in General Hospital. Hear the songs that inspired to make the move from Australian pop group to American rockstar on September 26th!
Is there a song that’s more iconic than Don Mclean’s “American Pie”? We’re diving into the “mixtape” that influenced this member of the Songwriter Hall of Fame who’s had songs sung by Elvis Presley, Glen Campbell, and even Madonna on October 3rd. The episode is complete with a jam session starring the hit that spent four weeks at #1 and now has over 5 million radio airplays.
Don Felder has made a name for himself both as a member of the LEGENDARY band, Eagles, and as a solo artist. On his episode of MIXTAPE, Felder will talk about how he was first attracted to music after watching Elvis Presley live on The Ed Sullivan Show and the songs that helped shape his entire career.
This may seem like one of the most unlikely duos to ever grace the TV screen, but trust us, it’s going to rock. On October 17th, The Doors guitarist, Robby Krieger, is joining forces with one of Hollywood’s biggest movie stars, Dennis Quaid. The two will go through their individual music history and share stories from each of their illustrious careers.
Todd Rundgren is known for his unorthodox music, flamboyant stage outfits, and experiments in entertainment. Finally, the multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, and record producer will let us in on all the songs that inspired him to break barriers with his own music.
