Michael Des Barres: Actor, Singer, Songwriter, Poet, DJ & Marquis

Hello and welcome to episode 48 of Sing! Dance! Act! Thrive!

I’m very excited about my guest today! Michael Des Barres is a European Marquis, raised in England, and living in Los Angeles. He has appeared in over 150 hours of American television, including roles on MacGyver, Seinfeld, and Roseanne, as well as more than 40 feature films including To Sir, With Love with Sidney Poitier and has sold over 7 million albums as both a recording artist and songwriter, beginning with his days as the frontman for such seminal 1970s bands as Silverhead and Detective, a band personally signed by Jimmy Page to Led Zeppelin’s Swan Song records.

Michael was also the touring singer for the Duran Duran spin-off group, The Power Station, performing at Live Aid with one of the most iconic live acts of the mid-1980s. From 1982 to 1984, Michael was a member of Chequered Past, which included Steve Jones from the Sex Pistols and Clem Burke and Nigel Harrison of Blondie. In 1983, Michael penned the song “Obsession”, which later became a number one hit in 27 countries for LA new wave group Animotion; the track continues to be featured in countless movies, television shows, and commercials.

At 72 years old, he is an active musician, actor, writer and now DJ as he starts his weekday mornings hosting The Michael Des Barres Program on Little Steven's Underground Garage on SiriusXM Radio. A documentary on his life has just been released called Who Do You Want Me To Be? That you can watch on Amazon.
