"SHE'S BACK"
EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW
In 1962, Warwick released her first single, "Don't Make Me Over." It became a hit the following year. A typo on the record led to an accidental name. Instead of "Dionne Warrick," the label read "Dionne Warwick." She decided to keep the new moniker and went on to greater chart success. In 1964, Warwick had two Top 10 singles with "Anyone Who Had a Heart" and "Walk On By"—both penned by Bacharach and David. "Walk On By" s also her first No. 1 R&B hit.


More hits, including many written by Bacharach and David, followed as the 1960s progressed. "Message to Michael" made the Top 10 in 1966, and her version of "I Say A Little Prayer" climbed as high as the No. 4 spot the following year. Warwick also found great success
with her contributions to movie soundtracks. The theme song for the 1967 film Alfie, starring Michael Caine, was a solid success for her, as was "Valley of the Dolls," from the 1968 movie of the same name.
In 1968, Warwick had other hits, including her trademark tune "Do You Know the Way to San Jose," which earned Warwick her first Grammy Award. That same year, Warwick made history as the first African-American woman to perform for Queen Elizabeth II in England.
Warwick reached the top of the pop charts for the first time in 1974 with "Then Came You," which she recorded with the Spinners. But then Warwick suffered a career slump for several years. In 1979, she made a triumphant return to the charts with the ballad "I'll Never Love This Way Again." She also soon became a fixture on television with the music program Solid Gold, which she hosted in the early 1980s. Warwick also had several successful collaborative efforts.
In 1982, she made the charts with "Friends In Love" with Johnny Mathis, and "Heart Breaker" with Barry Gibb.
Around this time, Warwick scored one of the biggest hits of her career with "That's What Friends Are For." Stevie Wonder, Elton John and Gladys Knight also appeared on this 1985 No. 1 hit, which was an AIDS charity single written by Bacharach and Carole Bayer Sager. "Love Power," her duet with Jeffrey Osbourne two years later, marked her next major hit.

In 2012, Warwick celebrated her 50th year in music with the album Now. The recording features songs written by Bacharach and David. She once explained her longevity to Jet magazine, saying, "I really attribute it to remaining who I am and not jumping ship, being completely cognizant of what the people ... are accustomed to hearing from me."

PETER BECKETT LEAD SINGER AND GUITARIST OF PLAYER & THE VOICE/SONGWRITER OF THE CLASSIC HIT "BABY COME BACK" EXCLUSIVE ON INTERVIEWING THE LEGENDS W/RAY SHASHO

LEAD SINGER AND SONGWRITER ON
 THE TIMELESS CLASSIC HIT
"BABY COME BACK"
Peter Beckett was in Liverpool England. “Being from Liverpool it would be hard not to have been influenced by the Beatles, whom I saw play at the Cavern a couple of times when I was very young."
Peter was obviously under age at the time the Beatles were playing at the Cavern, but his older brother managed to smuggle him into the club a few times to see the Beatles and other bands. Listening to the Beatles is why he decided he wanted to spend his life making music. 
Peter’s group called Skyband re-located to Los Angeles and became a founder member of a group called Player who had a No. 1 hit with ‘Baby Come Back’ in 1977, which Peter co-wrote and sang lead on (the number has been in over 40 movies and TV commercials, the most recent being ‘Transformers’). After recording four successful albums, the band split up and Peter’s success as a songwriter began to bear fruit as his songs were recorded by a variety of artists including Olivia Newton John, Kenny Rogers, the Temptations, Heart, Sergio Mendez, Vanessa Hudgens and Grace Slick, to name a few.
Peter also recorded his solo album ‘Beckett’, joined the Little River Band for eight years and wrote several singles for them and also began composing for film and television in addition to continuing touring, both as a solo artist and with band. Among his song writing credits in major movie soundtracks are ‘The Karate Kid’, ‘Cocktail’, ‘Two Of A Kind’, ‘Major League’, ‘Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, ‘Frankie & Johnny (the Al Pacino, Michelle Pfeiffer film), ‘Basic’ and ‘Terminator 3’ – and he received a Grammy nomination for ‘St Elmo’s Fire.’

There are songs you hear in your life that transport you to a certain time period or give you a special feeling.  You associate those good times to the group that made them famous.  Songs like “I’d Really Love To See You Tonight,” “Nights Are Forever Without You” and “Love Is The Answer” have that kind of effect on people.

John recorded a live album while he was on tour in the Philippines with many of the hits while also recording a CD entitled “The Best of John Ford Coley.” John’s most recent CD is entitled “Eclectic” and contains all new material for an acoustic/Americana album available now at amazon .com
 “I’d Really Love To See You Tonight” appeared in the film "Long Kiss Goodnight" with Geena Davis and Samuel L. Jackson and his and England Dan Seals’ song “Simone” was featured in the HBO Series “Vinyl” where two actors portray John and Dan in the studio singing the song.
In between the extensive road duty, John lives in the Nashville area as well as the Charleston, SC area with his family, where he's penned a book on his years in the music industry entitled “Backstage Pass.”
