Extended Interview: Tom & Traci sit down with Air Supply

Posted:

They are best known for songs like, "Lost in Love" and "All out of Love," but for 4O years now, fans have been showing Air Supply the love.

The soft-rock duo performed at the Lerner Theater in Elkhart Friday night.

Tom and Traci, who are big fans, had the opportunity to sit down with them before the show. They talked about how they have stood the test of time and why they are enjoying it now, more than ever.

"We're here, and it's a lovely theater," says Air Supply member, Russell Hitchcock. 

Hitchcock and Graham Russell say they're still going strong after four decades, and it's still all about the music.

"The songs are very simple," says Russell. "There's nothing complicated, but they seem to get to people in a very unusual way. They strike people, and we see it every night."

You won't find an Air Supply song on this week's top 40 chart, but in a way, they say they enjoy what they're doing now more than the early days.

"Now, we get to step back and realize that we've accomplished a tremendous amount," says Hitchcock.

Even after all that success - after all the years together on the road - these guys swear they've never had a fight.

"We have very distinct roles," says Hitchcock. "He is the song writer, and I sing. We don't step on each other's toes. We have the same passion about moving Air Supply forward, and we enjoy each other's company tremendously."

They are very busy. They're working on an Air Supply musical, and their latest release - believe it or not - is a dance single.
