On Saturday September 25, 2021, guitar legend Joe Bonamassa will serve as host for a one-of-a-kind online broadcast featuring an in-depth interview with the GRAMMY Award winning producer, engineer, composer and musician Alan Parsons. With an unprecedented 24 albums all reaching #1 on Billboard’s Blues Charts, Joe Bonamassa has established himself as the premier blues guitarist of the 21st century. The interview will take place inside the Musicians Hall of Fame in Nashville, TN.
Alan will be sharing previews of his new concert film release Live In The Netherlands. In addition, the program will serve as the world premiere for his new song and music video “The NeverEnding Show”, which features singer/composer Jordan Asher Huffman. The broadcast will be repeated throughout a 48 hour period to accommodate our planet’s various time zones.
Alan Parsons began his engineering career at Abbey Road Studios working on the The Beatles Let It Be and Abbey Road albums along with various projects for Paul McCartney & Wings before earning his first GRAMMY nomination for his innovative engineering on Pink Floyd’s landmark album Dark Side of the Moon. From there he would become the multi-platinum selling producer/artist behind The Alan Parsons Project while continuing to produce other artists including Al Stewart and Ambrosia.
For the last three decades, Alan has toured the world with his band, the Alan Parsons Live Project, playing to sold out crowds while continuing to release albums and DVDs. His most recent concert film Live In The Netherlands, which includes his new song and music video “The NeverEnding Show”, both originate from IM3 Management Group’s Producing and Directing team of Trinity Houston and David Minasian. The package will be released worldwide on various formats including Blu-Ray, DVD, CD, LP and Digital come this November. Alan is currently in the studio working on his latest album for Frontiers Records which will serve as a follow up to 2019’s The Secret.
