Wayne Nelson is the bassist and vocalist of Little River Band, and has been for the past 4 decades… LRB gave us many great ‘80s hits including “Reminiscing,” “Lonesome Loser,” “Lady,” “Cool Change” and “The Night Owls”  It’s gone through numerous changes since then, but carries on.

I talk with Wayne about...

  • His beginnings in music in Chicago.
  • Moving to L.A., and  connecting with star performer and producer Jim Messina.
  • How he joined Little River Band.
  • His early experiences with the group, including working with legendary Beatles producer George Martin.
  • The controversy and legal battles behind use of the Little River Band name.
  • How the band began playing with orchestras, leading to its terrific new orchestrated Greatest Hits LP – Black Tie.
