Rare & Scratchy Rock 'N Roll Podcast


"Rare & Scratchy Rock 'N Roll" is a "rockumentary" series telling the greatest rock and roll stories on record. Some of our episodes spotlight specific artists, and others cover various specific subjects. All of them rock as we cover stories and myths about songs you can sing along with.

This episode traces 15 rock and pop star love affairs and how those romances inspired some memorable songs. These range from tunes about teenage infatuation to tempestuous love triangles.

They include a wife who asked her faded rock star husband to write her a song that sold millions. And the jilted girlfriend of another rock icon who sued him for millions over one of his songs.

Some of these stories are heart-warming, and some of these stories are heart-breaking.

And they all involve names you know, including Eric Clapton, George Harrison, John Lennon, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, the Mamas and the Papas, Paul Anka, Annette Funicello, Ritchie Valens, Marvin Gaye, Rod Stewart, Roy Orbison, Bobby Darin, Connie Francis, and John Denver among others. There’s passion in their music and music in their passion.

And all of us at Rare & Scratchy Rock 'N Roll think you’ll love hearing all about it all right here.
