My Favorite Album with Jeremy Dylan

Mar 12, 2015

On the second of our three episodes on the Rolling Stones classic 1964 self-titled debut album, ARIA-winner and Hall of Famer Russell Morris joins me to talk about the impact its had on his own music.

How did a Rolling Stones related humiliation turn Russell into a songwriter? What inspiration did Russell take from this album when recording his career revitalising Sharkmouth album? Which blues legends played on Russell biggest pop singles? Why did Russell miss the Stones first Australian tour - and what did he think when he saw them many years later? Plus Russell reveals the worst predictions he ever made and how he learned to ignore other people’s advice.

Listen to Spectrum’s Mike Rudd talk about the album here and check back next week for Joe Camileri in the final part of our trilogy.
