Pilot lead singer David Paton

Pilot lead singer David Paton shares the stories behind the Pilot hits "Magic" and "January". David also has some fascinating tales from his work with artists such as Elton John and the Alan Parsons Project. Alan Parsons also produced the Pilot hits, as you can hear in his Hitstories interviews here.

Sir George Martin

Not a lot of people are lucky enough to live to the age of 90. Even fewer get to leave behind a catalogue of work that will stand the test of time. Sir George Martin accomplished both. He was the record producer behind The Beatles and a gentleman in every sense of the word. His hit stories are compulsive listening.

Neil Sedaka

Considering his music career began in 1957 it is fairly impressive that he is still performing to large audiences in 2016. No doubt a large part of Neil Sedaka's ongoing appeal is his huge catalogue of million selling hits. That said, it hasn't been all plain sailing throughout his career as you will hear as Neil Sedaka shares his hit stories.

Kiki Dee

For some Kiki Dee will bring back memories of just one song - her #1 one duet with Elton John, "Don't Go Breaking My Heart". It was a huge hit and she does fondly reminisce about her work with Elton (and the jokes he played on her), however there were other hits for Kiki including one of the best love songs of the 70's.

John Reid (former manager of Elton John and Queen)

The former manager of Elton John, Queen and Kiki Dee has some great stories to tell. John Reid was there when Queen first went to the top of the charts with "Bohemian Rhapsody". For 28 years he managed Elton John's career and has some great stories about Elton's generosity. He also managed the Motown Record label in the UK and had success with that too.
