This is a podcast that was created to discuss the humongous tree of music known as Rock and Roll. There are thousands of branches. There is so much information out there with even more to be learned. Together, we are going to have fun talking about our passion, the Imbalanced History of Rock and Roll. Between Ray and Markus, we have 50+ years of rock and roll radio experience and a thirst to know more! With your input we want to begin to balance the imbalanced. We look forward to connecting ...

Before our July Summer vacation, a really great talk with author Daniel Rachel (Like Some Forgotten Dream, Don't Look Back In Anger, Walls Come Tumbling Down) to discuss his latest book, Too Much Too Young: The 2-Tone Records Story! The music of Ska was the next big thing in London, and in Coventry, where many of the bands percolated in a vacuum. T…

From his family roots to his dual career paths, taken simultaneously, Markus and Ray take the ride with you, musically, and historically! From London to L.A., we talk about his musical life, and all the twists and turns it took. Due to the risk of a 2+ hourlong episode, much of Rod Stewart's personal story is pretty much left out. So, it's football…

Sometimes when you do interviews, the discussion expands beyond the movie or book the subject came to promote. That's what happened when Markus & Ray talked with author Steven Gaines. But Gaines isn't just any Rock author, having been Alice Cooper's biographer & regular golf partner, writing books and penning columns, and interviewing all of The Be…

Someone had the idea to start a meme, in tribute if you will, to the elders. All genres, all artists, all that matters! Healthy discussions (lookin' at you, Facebook friends!) are a good thing, but try to be kind! What's cool is the variety of amazing artists, well past full retirement age, who've decided that playing on the back porch is "for old …

When Markus told Ray about his love of Traffic, it sparked a conversation that spills into this episode. Proving we all have our own path, Markus notes When The Eagle Flies as his favorite, while Ray prefers Low Spark... That led to discussion of Blind Faith, a 1969 side project, which the Boys discuss as well. It's a different-angle perspective an…

Even if your podcast guest is an old friend, you never know what might come up, or what you might learn!

The Imbalanced Boys discuss his early days in the bands, leading up to…

When the Imbalanced Boys were 25 episodes into this podcast, they made the move to Pantheon! The occasion fell on the same day as Bruce Springsteen's 70th birthday, so it was a natural to feature his story. In the 325 episodes since then, Markus & Ray have covered so many topics and artists, with many more to come! 350 down! 350 to go? Time will te…

To understand the story of Joy Division, and how they became New Order requires some patience, and much more. The "why?" in the equation is also discussed, including the lack of support in the area of mental health in that era. The suicide of Ian Curtis might have crashed most bands, but the survivors carried on with a New Order! The impact of Joy …

When you think of bass players in the 1970's, so many names pop into your head, right? Well, Markus and Ray had the same thing happen. Sorting through, sifting their grey matter, they've whittled it down to their 5 Favorites, but also both of them have long lists of "honorable mentions," in this episode! (Go figure...) Listen, then post your faves …

Often in studying Rock & Roll History, we find various points of view on the same subject, or event. It's the nature of things. But given a chance to talk with someone "who was there" is always great for the Imbalanced Boys. Suzi Ronson's friendship with Angie Bowie, and her entry into David's universe is part of the story, but with her attention t…

The Imbalanced History started, as many podcasts do, with a trailer in March 2019. 10 days later, Markus and Ray released their first actual episode, A Case For The Beatles. As the podcast evolved, and began musical illustration of episodes, they went back and "re-imagined" this fun ep. Now remastered for its 5th anniversary since release. Here's t…

Game Changers, in the eyes of the Imbalanced Brothers, are the albums, people, events, and things that changed the game, the music business, or how we view the whole damn thing! Nothing happens in a vacuum, and the rise and trajectory of Van Halen is no different. They had great managers, and label people guiding them on their way, and a major earl…

No joke! The Imbalanced History podcast has evolved and grown in the last 300 or so episodes since we originally released this week's episode on June 11, 2019! It's been "enhanced" and expanded in some spots from the original release. We all felt that Zeppelin deserved the effort. Hope we succeeded, and that you like it half as much as you seem to …

The 1970s was an extremely fertile time for music, in general, but especially for all flavors of Rock. Much as here in the 21st century, the influence of women on music of all genres was over-the-top. That impact was felt, maybe most of all, by Rock music. In previous decades, much of the music being made by women was written for them, fabricated i…

David Cross discusses his time inside and out of King Crimson, including his various solo outings and some Crimson-adjacent projects! Starting with the highly-influential Larks' Tongues In Aspic, he was part of the band in the mid-'70s, before finding his way to the long solo road, that he has been riding since. The conversation is informative, and…

This episode starts with a grunge.com article about albums released in '74, and turning 50, but The Imbalanced Boys realized there was much more to 1974 than the writer covered. How can you fail to include Rock n' Roll Animal by Lou Reed, as an example. So, Markus and Ray dive into that rabbit hole in the second half of this week's podcast. Startin…

We looked into an article on Louder Sound that talked about the longest runs on the Billboard album chart. That chart started as a Top 10 in the 1950s, expanding through to 1967 when it became the Billboard 200! That's name most of us know. This adventure just might include the most artists not previously profiled in one of our episodes: Lana Del R…

Jim Gordon was a kid who loved to play drums. Where would that love take him? Basically, everywhere! His inventive, musical percussion style created an incredible demand for his services. Having Jim on drums could change the fate of a recording project, and often did! The success and impact of Gordon's playing was legendary, long before the June 19…
