The Words Behind the Metal (with Steve Ferman)

Livingston, NJ native and rock singer Steve Ferman takes us through the rock and roll of his youth. Queen, The Cars, Frampton… you get the idea. In this case we take a hard look at the words behind the metal and make some startling discoveries.  

From a Ford Pinto with seven teenagers to being asked to sit politely while seeing Queen at Budokon Stadium in Japan, Marine Vet and rock singer, Steve Ferman, has a lot of rock & roll tales to tell us.

The Words Behind the Metal (E32) – this week on Lester the Nightfly.
