Bonus BROADcast! It's not every day I chat with a Marquis. An actual blueblood. Michael Des Barres reeks education and sophistication. He's also a Movie Star, a TV Star, a Rock Star, and currently, a DJ, on Little Steven's Underground Garage.
A one-time junkie who married, perhaps the most celebrated groupie of our time, Michael's a sober, devoted, father, and ex. A true renaissance man, he speaks with authority on philosophy, art, music, film, theatre, celebrity, and Pinkberry.
From To Sir with Love, NCIS, Nip/Tuck, Roseanne, Seinfeld, Northern Exposure, St. Elsewhere... signed by Jimmy Page, himself. replacing Robert Palmer to front Power Station, and at Live Aid no less, had a massive hit with Obsession, helped found Rock Against Drugs... the man is a glass all full, dynamo... gracious, charming, generous, intense.
Our conversation began a tad challenging for me but very quickly evolved into one of the most thoughtful, fascinating, emotional, informative, delightful chats I've had to date. I was moved, entertained, and, schooled. Michael evoked laughter, tears, and left me motivated as hell to do more, be more, know more. Loved it. It was church.
I recorded this show with the intention of banking it to use as needed... our weekly promise, already fulfilled. But I just couldn't sit on it. Michael's too damn good. And bad. In the good way.
