Ep 14: The Outfield (Retrospective)

November 15, 2020

In light of the recent passing of Tony Lewis, Episode 14 takes a look back at the career and music of The Outfield. We discuss how the partnership between bassist/vocalist Tony Lewis, guitarist/songwriter John Spinks and drummer Alan Jackman created maybe *the* greatest pop-rock song of the 1980's, in addition to the rest of their catalog, which includes a tremendous amount of wonderful music. John and Tony have since passed away, so this episode has been recorded in tribute to them, and it is meant as a celebration of the incredible work these men gave to the world. RIP.
