In early May, Rita Coolidge released Safe in the Arms of Time, a new studio album featuring guest appearances from colleague and close friend Graham Nash, Stan Lynch, Keb’ Mo’, and more.
It’s the latest entry to her catalog of timeless music, and a testament to her enduring and lasting career.
Recently, Rock Cellar’s Ken Sharp caught up with Coolidge at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles for a special RockCellarTV installment — enjoy a career-spanning one-on-one conversation below.
This is our second lengthy chat with Coolidge over the years, as she and Sharp linked up in 2016 for another interview about her decades in the business and her contributions to the coda of the song “Layla.”
Coolidge joins the ranks of those we’ve spoken with in this capacity over the past few months, a list that includes Peter Noone of Herman’s Hermits, Steve Hackett, John Oates, Rick Springfield, Gene Simmons of KISS, Steve Lukather of Toto, Mike Love of the Beach Boys, Todd Rundgren, Ringo Starr and more.
