Dave Lawrence

Reports and interviews from HPR's Dave Lawrence

  Common Bond is the upcoming solo album from Billy Joel sax player/Ringo Starr All Starr Band Music Director Mark Rivera. It's also a good way to describe his connection to The Beatles, having worked with three of the Fab Four, and in a series encore recorded in Sydney, he explained to HPR’s Dave Lawrence how the journey started with John Lennon.

He’s sold over 250 million albums around the world; is credited with Britain's first rock and roll song; and Beatle John Lennon once stated that before this performer came along, “there had been nothing worth listening to in British music”. We’re talking about entertainer and philanthropist Sir Cliff Richard. HPR’s Dave Lawrence caught up with him during a recent tour stop in Sydney, Australia. 

See and hear the complete interview with Sir Cliff Richard below, recorded 12 February 2013 during his run at the Sydney Opera House, Sydney, Australia.

  Shortly after releasing their debut album Kilroy Was Here, members of local rock act 11th Hour visited our Atherton Performing Arts Studio for a special unplugged performance/interview session with HPR’s Dave Lawrence.

  Actress Sarah Wayne Callies grew up in Honolulu before striking it big first in Prison Break, and more recently, in The Walking Dead. The Punahou grad took time to speak with HPR’s Dave Lawrence on a recent trip home. During her debut Atherton Performing Arts Studio visit, she shared some of her earliest Hawai`i experiences.
