The “No Doubt” singer shared her rollercoaster love story. She talked about the pain Gavin Rossdale, father to her three sons, caused her. The divorce left her deeply depressed but then she started making music again.
Meeting Blake Shelton felt like fate. They both were at “The Voice,” and they had both gone through a divorce recently. They were great friends and they fell in love bonding over their destiny. She put out an album called “This is What Truth Feels Like,” about her experience. They married soon after this interview.
Doctors gave Tracy Morgan a 2 percent chance of living after being in a massive six-car accident. In 2014 on the New Jersey turnpike, a Walmart truck driver crashed into the van he was in. His friend and mentor, comedian James McNair, was in that van too. He didn’t survive. Morgan found out after being in the hospital for two weeks.
He told Stern he was given a second chance by god. The actor sued Walmart, looking for justice, but said there is no way to compensate for that level of trauma and loss.
MSNBC’s liberal queen Rachel Maddow surprised Stern about a friendship she had with Roger Ailes, a former CEO for Fox News. Ailes had recently passed at the time of this interview, so Maddow had a chance to tell her background with him.
She asked him for advice once and she characterized him as “gracious” and “constructive.” Ailes told Maddow he wanted to hire her. He said he’d pay her a full contract, keeping her from working anywhere else, but never allow her to go on the air.
Not long after Steve Miller was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, he stopped by the studio. He told stories from the ‘60s. It was 1969, the summer of love, the first Woodstock rock festival, and Miller got the chance to jam with The Beatles.
The Beatles and Steve Miller were recording albums in the Olympic Studio in London. He watched them make music in awe. He was honored when George Harrison invited him to stay at his place saying, “Hi Steve, I’ve listened to all your stuff. Children of the Future, Sailor, they’re such great records.”
Remembering Prince, Sheryl Crow is humbled recalling when the iconic music maker called her up to say he really likes her song, “Every Day Is a Winding Road.” He even covered it.
She also discussed that in the early 2000s, there was a moment she almost joined Fleetwood Mac. She said she wished it would have worked out, but Lindsey Buckingham was not for it, and she felt right away she should just forget it.
