Eric Gales launched his music career signing with a major label at 16 years old. His first single was Top 10 on the "mainstream rock chart," and his career was off and running. Throughout his music career, the road for Eric has had its ups and downs, but today he's back stronger than ever - getting ready to release his 19th album. Award-winning program director Ray White hooked up with Eric backstage before a standing-room only performance in November of 2021, to talk about his start in the music business and his rebirth, including working with his longtime friend Joe Bonamassa. Crown is the title of his upcoming album and reinforces his stature among the top blues rock guitarists in the world! In our showcase segment, we take a look back at 2021 featuring the Foo Fighters, whose latest album is Medicine at Midnight, and Coldplay who recently released their Music of the Spheres project. Two "classic" bands that ended the year at the top of the CAT's charts! You better believe it, Classic Artists Today is rockin' right into the New Year!!
