TMP169 TONY HASELDEN KEEPS ON COOKING WITH LEROUX
A founding member of Louisiana’s LeRoux, the multi-platinum-selling guitarist, songwriter, and singer rode the wave of chart-topping singles (“New Orleans Ladies,” “Nobody Said It Was Easy”) and tours with bands like ZZ Top, the Doobie Bros., Bob Seger, and John Prine. As a songwriter Tony spent 30 years in Nashville writing a string of #1 hits for top-selling country artists like George Strait, Keith Whitley, and Shania Twain. He likes to claim his music biz success has all been by accident. Tonight he joins the Troubled Men and learns just how bad an accident can be.
Topics include the return to school, identity theft, “Christine,” campaign questionnaires, vaccine resistance, bilingual instructions, switching from trombone to guitar, joining the band, a new name, the new album, “One of Those Days,” longevity, prostitutes, pressure to repeat, influences, the New Orleans market, touring, perennial openers, Ozzy, Ronnie Milsap’s bus, John Mayer, the Grateful Dead, the state of country music, co-writing, getting a cut, Billy Joe Shaver, radio airplay, and much more.
