Video of the Week: Michael Des Barres

Michael Des Barres is a British rocker and actor – he’s been in a number of bands but is perhaps most famous for replacing Robert Palmer in Power Station in 1985.  As an actor, he’s been in shows like “Miami Vice” and “MacGyver.”  Des Barres is making a new album in Austin, and it’s being produced by Texas boy Jesse Dayton.  No Past, No Future, No Problem is described as a “soul” album and nobody seems to know when it’s coming out, but here’s one of the songs from the album as performed by Des Barres sitting on an Austin porch.

  1. nice one…..i will always think of Mr. Des Barres from UK glammers Silverhead, late 70s hard rockers Detective, and of course, his roll in “WKRP In Cincinnatti”, as the lead singer of the ‘punk rock’ band Scum of The Earth!!!! Thanks-Jim

    Check out his official website (link above) … there’s a short concert he did during SXSW in Austin this year. He performs a Silverhead tune and of course “Obsession.”
