There's no shame to it. Unless your name is Todd Rundgren, everybody needs a little backup. Whether you're a dynamic stage performer with pipes of gold, or a shy but talented singer/songwriter, a good backing band can make a career. These unsung heroes have sometimes been the catalyst that turns an ordinary artist into a legend. Where would Bob Marley have been without his beloved Wailers? Would Elvis Costello's formative punk years be as revered without the energy, versatility and talent of Steve Nieve, Bruce Thomas and Pete Thomas of the Attractions? Probably not. All the greats that ever put on a heart-stopping live show or delivered a mind-blowing studio album did it in part because of the ladies and gentlemen behind the scenes. Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumental genius Fuzzbee Morse joins All Time Top Ten for the first time to help pay tribute to the best backing bands the music world has ever heard.

If you're one of the uninitiated, Fuzzbee is a legend in his own right. His most recent album Dreams & Other Living Things features 3 members of rock n roll royalty as his amazing backing band. Find out more about the album and his astounding career at his website:

The term 'psychedelic' in regards to music can be defined in a number of different ways. It can be seen as the experimental, avant-garde, or colorful side of music. To put it another way, like our special guest, singer/songwriter/musician/producer Chris Price suggests, it's music that gives you the experience of what it's like to be on drugs. The psychedelic movement began with the rise of LSD in the mid 1960's, but it certainly doesn't end there. To this day there is great 'Psych' music being produced in many different styles from modern rock to hip hop. Ben and Chris explore the decades and genres for the best psychedelic music on the planet and in Top Ten Psychedelic Albums Volume 1 they set the stage for further listening and the limitless possibilities that lay in wait for eager musical explorers.

As always, Chris is extremely busy in the studio and on the stage. Find out more about his solo music and his very own psychedelic rock band Bebopalula at his website:

All Time Top Ten is a podcast for music geeks by music geeks, and for the life of us we can't think of a band that brings musicians and geekery together like Steely Dan. From the streets of collegiate New York came Donald Fagen and Walter Becker, a dynamic duo that took the musicianship and flair of great jazz and fused it with a rock edge. Add in a sardonic wit and deceptively dark subject matter, and you get one of the most unique musical acts of the past 40 years. Doing an episode on Steely Dan requires expertise, and since we're closet perfectionists at heart, it was imperative that ATTT's Steely Dan episode would be hosted by true fanatics of the band. First-time guests Erik Desiderio and Matt Ferguson fit the bill as big time Dan fans, and they run the show with their top ten lists, while Ben moderates. There are stories, bits of amazing trivia, and of course the stellar music from the geniuses that brought you jazz rock perfection. Listen and you'll become an instant fan.

Erik's work in the studio can be checked out at his website, and you can hire him as well!

Matt is working on the upcoming DVD release of the T.A.M.I Show, which is a must watch. Here's a special preview:

Every once in a while things get so out of hand that even the most strident non-button-pushers among us feel it’s their solemn duty to say something. For nearly 5 years, All Time Top Ten has prided itself on bringing you lists, laughs, stories, amazing music, and more lists. We’ve steered clear of political talk or specific political ideals, for the most part, because it’s supposed to be entertainment first and foremost. Well things have officially gotten out of hand. The U.S. Presidential election is nearly a month away and somehow the leader of the free world COULD be a hateful misogynist con-artist racist bully, who COULD literally destroy the world with his reckless ideas and actions. We here at ATTT can no longer stand idly by and watch it all go to hell without using our limited power for good. Ben is joined by fellow firebrands Mike and Vanessa Axelsen to lay out the case to dump Trump, and play some pretty kickass music in the process. Top Ten Songs For Donald Trump features songs about liars, con-artists, racists, bullies and megalomaniacs. We hope you don’t mind indulging us for one episode as we lay out the case against that hate-filled orange hot air balloon. Swing voters, protest voters, Trump voters and Hillary voters, take a listen. This is important stuff!!!

There are tons of places online to register to vote. Here’s one:

To quote Paul Simon, "Everybody loves the sound of a train in the distance. Everybody thinks it's true." There is something to this notion of riding the rails. The romanticism of trains in music is a trope as old as trains themselves. Over the years there have been countless classic songs about movement, freedom, adventure and other lofty concepts; and tons of these songs use a train literally and/or figuratively to express it. A train can take you anywhere - away from a sad place, off to an unfamiliar destination, to heaven or even hell. The Old Boy himself Ryan Blake returns for another installment of the John Candy Trilogy - songs about Planes, Trains & Automobiles. Songs About Trains may end up being the richest in abundance of the three categories, and Ben & Ryan bring you the best of 'em.

If you missed the first installment, Top Ten Songs About Airplanes can be found at the ol' archive page at Mixcloud: https://www.mixcloud.com/beneisen/episode-215-top-ten-songs-about-planes-wryan-blake/

In the spirit of equality, we here at ATTT feel it is our solemn duty to let the ladies have what they deserve. We did enough ogling at the Badass Babes Of Music last week. It's time to flip the script, turn the tables, upset the apple cart, let the lunatics run the asylum, and any number of cliched phrases. In short, we're highlighting the dudes this time around. The hot dudes. Actually the hot men, as it shall be known, at the behest of our lovely and talented guest hosts Shannon Hurley & Linda Trujillo. Shannon and Linda know a lot about "hashtag giggity" and set their sights on the sexiest men in music, past and present. Things get ridiculous, as they must but overall we think you'll be, um... satisfied.

Shannon's new music video "Heartbeat On The Radio" is out and needs to be seen, as it features a small role by your humble host and moderator, Ben. Here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzXQJHr9H6Q

They're edgy. Powerful. Sexy. They'll kick you in the teeth if you get on their bad side. Oh, and they'll blow your mind with a vocal and/or blistering guitar solo. These are qualities we look for in our female rock stars. Not to say one size fits all, because it's far from the truth, but there are some women in music past and present that undeniably have "it". "It" is the perfect combination of raw sex appeal and a "take no shit" attitude. Behold the greatest Badass Babes of music from back in the day to modern times. Pal-of-the-podcast Matt Dinan returns to help Ben count them down while the boys try to rein in their drool. Women want to be them, men want to be with them.

Matt has directed a film and music video or two. Check out some of his stuff here:

Along with eating and breathing, air drumming is an essential component to a healthy existence. For those who grew up on a steady diet of rock, pop, funk, metal and/or disco, countless hours of joy have been spent banging the mother-loving crap out of a fake drum set with fake sticks. One thing that's real: ATTT's enthusiasm for being an air drumming wizard. In that spirit, a couple of our beloved regulars have dropped in for a good air drumming workout, and we mean work. out. The enigmatic David Daskal and the affable Dustin Prince join forces with Ben to create a super-sized episode, complete with 3 top ten lists of air-drumming madness. See if you can keep up.

David's Eagles tribute band Best Of My Love continue their stellar live shows all over Southern California and beyond. Find out more at http://bestofmylove.net

Dustin plays drums for the prog rock stalwarts Lobate Scarp. Hear and see their epicness here: http://www.lobatescarp.com.hostbaby.com

Yes it's true summer is winding down. Soon the air will get colder and the days will get shorter. Eventually your hair will fall out and you'll wither and die. Good times! A while back ATTT presented an episode highlighting some of the saddest and most beautiful songs ever written. It was so much fun we had to do another volume, and this time go even darker. Enter the great Mike Dawson and THAT voice. Mike and Ben go further into the depressing and beautiful to bring you a specific type of pain - Songs To Slit Your Wrist To. Obviously we don't recommend actually doing it and we urge anyone on the brink to seek help and please please listen to this episode when you're in a better place. For everyone else, hold on tight and don't give up. This is a heavy one.

Mike's musings on the world and links to everything he's been working on can be chronicled on his Twitter feed: https://twitter.com/DawsAngeles

The 90's were a glorious time for music and culture. Lines between every style under the sun were being blurred like never before. For the first time in the mainstream, hip hop was front and center, and this meant there was a lot of crossover potential with pop, rock and even metal. Styles were merging and mutating, and the united colors of Benetton were flying proudly. This seems like a good entry point to explore the wide world of duets. Ben is joined by the illustrious hosts of a new podcast that explores black culture, parenting and current events from a decidedly Woke angle. Nyaze and Melissa from the fabulous Woke With Kids podcast are in the studio reminiscing about slow jams, New Jack Swing, the "Alternative Nation" and other music gems from the amazing 1990's.
