You might have seen Michael Des Barres as Murdoc on the hit show MacGuyver or perhaps as a guest star on Seinfeld, Ellen, Roseanne, Melrose Place, Frasier, Bones or NCIS (and countless others).
You might have heard the song “Obsession,” co-written by Des Barres and Holly Knight. The Animotion version rose to #6 on the Billboard Top 40 chart in 1985.
You might have seen Des Barres fronting Power Station during the band’s set at Live Aid.
Here is Michael Des Barres’ First Concert.
Jimi Hendrix at The Marquee club in London. I was seventeen or eighteen. I was in drama school with Mitch Mitchell. He asked me if I wanted to see this new band. He had a black bloke who played left-handed. I haven’t come back to earth since that night.
What do you remember about the performance?
Seeing this skinny, beautiful gypsy fuck his amp and lick the audience while playing psychedelic blues on a wah wah pedal changed my DNA.
