On this Six-Pack episode, Lee McCormack of the Tramps Like Us Podcast and BJ Kramp of the Rock And/Or Roll podcast join Eric Miller of Pods & Sods to celebrate the work of master hit-writer Desmond Child. If you don’t know Desmond by name, you definitely know his work on huge hits by Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Ricky Martin, Joan Jett, Cher, Alice Cooper, KISS, Scorpions, Billy Squier, and dozens more. He started in the 70s with a disco-rock fusion group called Rouge before connecting with Paul Stanley to write I Was Made For Lovin’ You, which launched him as one of the most sought-after songwriters in the 80s and beyond. During his career, he’s been on all sides of the mic and the board, and we touch on all of it as we dig into a Six-Pack of this great Songwriting Hall of Famer!
