Singer-songwriter Kenny Connections recounts his 50-year career in his new memoir, “Still Alright.” Its release came just weeks after the theatrical release of the new movie “Top Gun” in June, which featured Loggins’ hit song “Danger Zone.”
He was known as “The King of the Soundtrack” thanks in part to “Danger Zone”. But tracks like “Footloose” and “I’m Alright” from “Caddyshack” also helped.
SPIN describes his career.
Already a folk-rock superstar in his early 20s as part of the duo Loggins & Messina, the artist inadvertently became a pioneer of yacht rock through his own late 70s solo work and a series of collaborations. hit with Michael McDonald (“What a Fool Believes”, “C’est ça”). He spent the next decade as one of the most commercially successful artists in the world and has rarely stopped working since, dabbling in everything from country, children’s and holiday music and gaining new fans to every step of the way thanks to his willingness to poke fun at his sweet, bearded rock persona.
We sit down with Loggins to talk about music, family and relationships. We even love hearing from a surprise furry guest.
