Mike Oldfield talks about his homage to American Rock
On the heels of his international acclaim at the 2012 Summer Olympic opening ceremony in London and the 40th anniversary of his signature work, Tubular Bells, Mike Oldfield takes a hard right into 70s era album rock. His latest CD, Man on the Rocks, features singer Luke Spiller from the little known band, the Struts in a set of anthemic rock songs that, save the electric guitar solos, wouldn’t be recognizable as Mike Oldfield. From his home in the Bahamas, I spoke to Oldfield about the motivations behind his work tonight on Echoes.
