One On One With Mitch Lafon - MICHAEL SCHENKER


LINK TO INTERVIEW: http://www.spreaker.com/user/talkingmetal/1on1-mitch-lafon-221-michael-schenker

Legendary guitarist MICHAEL SCHENKER joins Mitch for episode 221 of One On One With Mitch Lafon.

In the show's only interview, guitarist extraordinaire Michael Schenker dicusses his new On A Mission - Live In Madrid (CD/DVD and or Blu-Ray) release, Michael Schenker's Temple Of Rock band, Michael Schenker Fest, working with former Scorpions' bandmates Herman Rarebell & Francis Buchholz, his time with RATT, Scorpions, and his current feelings for his brother (Scorpions' guitarist) Rudolf Schenker.

Quote from the interview:

On A Mission - Live in Madrid (time - 1.53): "I always wanted to do a live album with a Spanish audience. They are always great fun."

Temple Of Rock (time - 5.06): "The idea is to develop it into its own identity - into its own style."

(time - 5.26): "After three albums of Temple Of Rock, we should be able to have enough classics to stand on its own feet, so that Doogie doesn't need to sing covers anymore."

The Michael Schenker Fest with singers Graham Bonnet, Gary Barden and Robin McAuley (time - 6.12): "The idea is - while I'm developing Temple Of Rock to stand on its own feet; I also want to present my past through the original guys."

SCORPIONS & his brother Rudolf Schenker:

(time - 12.21): "I had to fight my way out of Lovedrive because they didn't want to let me go."

(time - 12.29): "Everybody in America (all the managements), they wanted to sign the Scorpions and they thought if I leave the band that it would collapse."

(time - 12.42): "The Scorpions basically followed everything UFO did."

(time - 13.06): "I was his favorite guitarist."

(time - 13.58): "I realized what Rudolf had done. He has asked me to play the black & white guitar, he had asked me to give him the Coast To Coast melodies (those were the most tastiest parts). They never mentioned that I wrote the intro to Holiday (which sets up the song very nicely). Rudolf never missed a concert performing those two songs. Basically, he was trying to distort and make people think that there was not really any Michael Schenker. There was just Rudolf Schenker."

(time - 14.43): "I had a contract with the Scorpions. I was sixth member."

(time - 15.03): "Rudolf actually can't really play guitar properly and that's a fact."

(time - 15.18); "Basically, I started the Scorpions with Klaus."

(time - 16.16): "Basically, Uli was the foundation artistically."

(time - 16.39): "But Rudolf... My generosity was very sadly abused and I don't appreciate that. These days, I'm staying away from the Scorpions as far as a can especially from Rudolf. I can't trust him anymore. I don't know what else he has in his trick box."

(time - 17.15): "Klaus is the only one with the real talent."

(time - 17.33): "So, it's very sad that... on that Scorpions side, everything has become numb & dumb. It has nothing to do with music anymore. They milked what they could milk for the last 23 years with that manager who just died. They haven't done anything since Herman & Francis left."

There wasn't room for 'two Schenkers in the Scorpions' (quote from my July 2015 interview with Rudolf) (time - 18.58): "Rubbish. Absolute rubbish. Rudolf cried on the phone begging me back to the Scorpions when I left them because I went there to help the Scorpions out. I had just left UFO and I was peaking. I was #5 guitarist in America."

(time - 20.09): "I couldn't stand playing Uli's songs. I was a guitarist with a focus on pure expression. I wanted to develop as a guitarist. I did not want to be part of the artificial commercial world."

(time - 21.09): "They changed the story around to make it sound good. 'I had to take my brother because it's my brother.' Bullshit! They begged me into the Scorpions. The fact is I did not want to be part of a commercial touring band anymore. I wanted to do & go my own way."

(time - 22.13): "I would agree that there was no space for two Schenkers because if I would have stayed with the Scorpions my brother would have never experienced what he experienced."

(time - 23.58): speaking of Rudolf: "He's become a fame addict."

(time - 25.09): "He's a con artist. He steals everything that I have done. I'm his younger brother and he thinks he can get away with it."

(time - 25.33): "My sister wrote an email and said, 'Our brother is a greedy wanker."

One On One With Mitch Lafon - TED POLEY

Artist: 

Ep. 220 of One On One With Mitch Lafon featuring singer Ted Poley & Frontiers Music executive Mario De Riso

LINK TO INTERVIEW: http://www.spreaker.com/user/talkingmetal/1on1-mitch-lafon-220-ted-poley-frontiers

Danger Danger vocalist and solo artist TED POLEY as well as Frontiers Music's Mario De Riso join Mitch for episode 220 of One On One With Mitch Lafon.

In the episode's first interview Ted Poley discusses his fabulous new solo album Beyond The Fade, the ups and downs of Danger Danger, working on outside projects, the Cockroach album, touring and much more.

Quotes from the TED POLEY interview:

On the possibility of a new album from Danger Danger (time - 3.31): "Let's say two thirds of the band wants to record and one third of the decision making part of the band is on the other side of the fence. I don't want to throw anyone under the bus, but it's not Bruno and me."

The beginning of the end in the '90s and the album Screw It (time - 8.58): "It was about ten minutes to being over at that point - while we were recording Screw It. That was it. They flicked the switch and it was to the 'Off' position."

The Cockroach album (time - 12.23): "It's a great package because you can listen to my disc and use the other one as like a coaster so it doesn't leave rings on your furniture. I wish Paul all the best - he's got a new project with Bruno (The Defiants)."

The Cars Share Best In Show Honors Ric Ocasek, Greg Hawkes Guest On InTheStudio

Artist: 
 

Dallas, TX - MAY 17, 2016.  North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History’s Greatest Rock Bands puts out the checkered flag for some of the best of The Cars with singer/songwriter/guitarist Ric Ocasek behind the wheel and keyboardist Greg Hawkes riding shotgun.

The Cars’ zero-to-platinum popularity came amidst the final fizzle of the mid-Seventies Punk Rock sparkler, and the sound and attitude that survived was labeled by at least one rock writer as the nebulous one-size-fits-none term New Wave.

The drivetrain of the five man Boston band was always powered by the songs of Ric Ocasek. Growing up in the Otcasek household (Ric(k) later would also drop the “t” from his surname), early 1960s Sputnik paranoia and Telstar technology mixed with Cold War James Bond spy intrigue for Ric, courtesy of his father. “He was a systems analyst for NASA”, remarks Ocasek to InTheStudio host Redbeard. “There were ‘black boxes’ around our house that were locked. People from the government used to come and interview my Mom and ask her if he talked in his sleep!”

The Cars test track where they tuned up their sound was the mid-Seventies Boston club scene. With the follow up to their surprise hit debut (#16 on Rolling Stone magazine's Top 100 Debut Albums of All Time), the torque of The Cars' "Let's Go", "Touch and Go", "Shake It Up", "You Might Think" and monster ballad "Drive" all propelled the cross-legged Woodstock generation off of their butts and back onto the dance floor. The sleek polished chrome and glass production combined distinctive instrumental touches from rock and roll's past in a way that, paradoxically, sounded cutting edge modern, with ten Top 30 hits and twenty-five million albums sold just in the US.

THE CARS Moving In Stereo: Best Of/ InTheStudio interview is available now to STREAM at: http://www.inthestudio.net/redbeards-blog/cars-moving-stereo-bestof-ric-ocasek-greg-hawkes/

One On One With Mitch Lafon - NIKKI SIXX

Artist: 

The one and only NIKKI SIXX of SIXX:A.M. joins Mitch on episode 216 of One On One With Mitch Lafon.

LINK TO INTERVIEW: http://www.spreaker.com/user/talkingmetal/1on1-mitch-lafon-216-nikki-sixx-sixx-a-m

In the episode's only interview, legendary bassits NIKKI SIXX discusses the band's new album Prayers For The Damned Vol. 1, the song wriiting process, their upcoming tour schedule, YouTube and digital rights, Brides Of Destruction, the business of Mötley Crüe, Prayers For the Damned Vol. 2 (slated to be released this fall), the passing of PRINCE and more.

Quotes from the NIKKI SIXX interview:

The song writing process (time - 1.00): "I've had every situation as a songwriter, but with James, DJ and myself - we're a band. It's really the three of us that create this music. Parts of the way it sounds is because of DJ, other parts are because of James and other parts are because of me. Something happens between the three of us and we really enjoy that. It doesn't ever really come down to ego or who gets more. It comes down to 'what's the best thing for the project, for the song, for the fans."

(time - 2.38): "A song like Live Wire, for example, I wrote that for Vince Neil's voice.That's all there is to it. If you don't write it for the vocalist then it doesn't make any sense."

Prayers For The Damned Vol. 1 & Prayers For The Damned Vol. 2: (time - 3.53): "There is a definite separation in the two albums. They are two completely different albums."

(time - 4.26): "We have a song called Maybe It's Time which is maybe one of the best songs we've written. We're really excited about it."

(time - 5.15): "We're just loving having so much music to put out and so many opportunities to play in front of people."

Why build a new band and brand with SIXX:A.M. (time - 5.46): "Artists make art. Photographers shoot pictures. Musicians write songs. Writers write. That's just the way it is. So, you may or may not be as successful as something else you've done. Who would have thought that a guy in Mötley Crüe that didn't graduate high school would write two NY Times Bestsellers? You can't really go, 'Well, Mötley Crüe is massive so now what?' What now is you keep creating. You keep making music. You love to play live. If you are strategic and if you're lucky and it's the right time on earth, people can connect to it. That's where we're at as a band."

(YouTube discussion starts at 9.05)

Mötley Crüe (time - 14.26): "We have a live DVD of our last performance ever that we've just finished mixing. It looks fantastic. It was a great show. We have a legacy that needs to be curated. We have vintage merchandise... We plan on obviously staying engaged with our fans. It's not like we're simply going to disappear. The Mötley Crüe movie will come out. There's going to be Mötley in your life for a long time. In one way or another."

(PRINCE discussion starts at 15.14)

One On One With Mitch Lafon - PAUL LAINE & BRIAN VOLLMER

Artist: 

Ep. 213 of One On One With Mitch Lafon featuring Canadian singers Paul Laine and Brian Vollmer

Link to interviews: http://www.spreaker.com/user/talkingmetal/1on1-mitch-lafon-213-paul-laine-brian-vo

Former Danger Danger singer Paul Laine as well as Helix's Brian Vollmer join Mitch for episode 213 of One On One With Mitch Lafon.

In the episode's first interview singer Paul Laine discussed his new The Defiants (band & album) featuring Bruno Ravel & Rob Marcello, the infamous Danger Danger Cockroach album and subsequent lawsuit, his time with Danger Danger, his country career, DarkHorse, manager Bruce Allen and much more.

Quotes from the Paul Laine interview:

How the Defiants came about (time: 5.24): "We just went, 'Let's write a record together and see if we like the songs.' I didn't see past the end of the album."

Danger Danger: "My years in Danger Danger; it was a great band to be in. Live the band is fantastic."

On joining Danger Danger (time: 9.39): "One day I get a phone call and they said, 'You know Ted is gone and we have permission from Sony to take you on. Are you in? At the time I was in the middle of a lawsuit with the whole Bruce Allen thing and I said, 'Yes.'"

Quitting Danger Danger repeatedly (time 25.00:) "Every single record I did with Danger Danger was my last record. Danger Danger is Danger Danger and I don't see us really moving forward. I would go start on my next solo record. Every time I was done. That's why those records sound differently. I would start writing these songs and Danger Danger would call me up and they'd be like, 'We got a record deal. Are you in?' Ummm, 'Dudes, I'm doing something completely different. So, I would give them my songs and they would come with their songs and we'd put out this record. Then we'd get a tour and now I'm on the road. So, you come off the road and go, 'OK, I'm going to finish this (solo) record.' Then another record deal came in and they're like, 'well we need your three songs.' 'Ah, fuck! Fine."

The Interview starts at the 46.02 minute mark.

Quote from the Brian Vollmer interview: Touring (time 54.58): "The bar scene is pretty much dead in Canada. I really wonder where young bands are going to learn their craft. We learned how to play our instruments, how to sing, and just to mature as musicians & individuals while we were on their out there on the road."

JOEL HOEKSTRA Flags Project with MICHAEL SWEET (Stryper)

Artist: 

WHITESNAKE guitarist Joel Hoekstra is to record an album with Stryper singer Michael Sweet.
Hoekstra announced the project on the current episode of the White Line Fever podcast, explaining he had built a strong relationship with Sweet while contributing to his solo album.

“I just got done laying down some solos for Michael Sweet’s solo album and actually he and I are also going to record a project album together that I’m going to write with him,” Hoekstra said.
“I’m doing some writing for that now and also three other things in total so I’m writing for four things total right now.
“A lot of my days are that.”

Hoekstra said he was a massive admirer of Sweet, 52, who is also an accomplished guitarist and producer.
“A lot of the guys from the scene are jaded, tired,” said Hoekstra, formerly of Night Ranger and Trans-Siberian Orchestra. “Michael’s just a guy who’s got his life together and I think a lot of that is via how he goes about living his life on a daily basis.

“But yeah I think he is a really talented guy and a nice guy and him and I have always gotten on and wanted to work together.
“The timing didn’t work out for his last solo album so I ended up just kind of miming in a couple of the videos “I’m Not Your Suicide” and his duet with Electra Mustaine, the “Heart of Gold” cover.
“This time I got to play a little bit on the solo album and would have been happy to do much more but I think it would have been weird because we are going to do a whole album together.”

Whitesnake principle David Coverdale revealed in the wake of Deep Purple's Rock Hall induction he may retire in 2017

One On One With Mitch Lafon - MICK JONES

Artist: 

Legendary guitarist MICK JONES of FOREIGNER joins Mitch on episode 208 of One On One With Mitch Lafon.

MICK JONES new interview - HEAD GAMES reunion coming

LINK TO EPISODE: http://www.spreaker.com/user/talkingmetal/1on1-mitch-lafon-208-mick-jones-foreigne

In the episode's only interview, FOREIGNER's MICK JONES discusses his recent health issues (heart), as well as the band's upcoming tour dates, their latest album (the acoustic) IN CONCERT - UNPLUGGED, producing VAN HALEN's 5150 album, juvenile diabetes, working again with LOU GRAMM, plans for a 40th anniversary (reunion) tour (reuniting the HEAD GAMES lineup), recording new music, singer KELLY HANSEN and much more.

Quotes from the MICK JONES interview:

His heart issues (time at 5.02): "It really gave me a chance to stop and think about things a bit. First of all, think about how the hell I was going to deal with my life after that."

Kelly Hansen (Time 8.39): "He was an incredible addition to the band. It was absolutely vital that we had somebody who could step into 'those shoes'. He's just gone from better to better to better. Can't describe it really. He's just so dedicated."

Van Halen's 5150 (time 12.55) : "I guess I liked to live dangerously.  I had known Sammy (Hagar) quite well over the years and that was the connection. It was a formidable atmosphere when I got there and I was nervous - I really was."

40th year anniversary and working with LOU GRAMM again (25.02): "It's quite possible. We've actually been talking about it. We're all working on trying to make it happen. It's kind of exciting. Hopefully it'll be feasible and possible to pull it off."

REUNITING the HEAD GAMES line up (time 25.43): "Lou and I have communicated and we've kept up a sort of loose communication as I have actually also with Ian McDonald, Al Greenwood, Dennis Elliott and Rick Wills. We're at the early stages, but we're trying to put something together to commemorate (it's scary when I say it) 40 years."

One On One With Mitch Lafon - ACE FREHELY

Artist: 

ACE FREHLEY joins Mitch on episode 204 of One On One With Mitch Lafon.

Link to Episode: http://www.spreaker.com/user/talkingmetal/1on1-mitch-lafon-204-ace-frehley-march-2

In the episode's only interview, former KISS guitarist discusses his latest album Origins Vol. 1, working with Paul Stanley, his upcoming 2016 tour plans, the 40th anniversary of KISS' landmark Destroyer album, the 20th anniversary of the pre-reunion MTV Unplugged album, Psycho Circus, the reunion tour and much more.

Quotes from the ACE FREHLEY interview:

Getting Paul Stanley on the album: "It was actually rather easy. I called Paul and he picked up the phone right away. I told him what I was doing and he was very receptive."

"I had originally tried to get Gene on the record, but he never got back to me."

On working with KISS again: "I'm not ruling it out. I always leave the door open. Right now, I'm just very excited about Fire And Water. Paul's really happy with the way it turned out. I'm very happy. So, we're just moving forward in a positive way and whatever happens in the future happens or if it doesn't - it doesn't."

The 1996 KISS - MTV Unplugged album: "It was a little nerve-racking. We weren't sure how the fans were going to receive it, but when we taped the show; the fans just went crazy when me and Peter walked out. It was just one of those moments in time where everything solidified."

"Paul and Gene realized that they had to move forward with me and Peter because the fans wouldn't have it any other way."

The Reunion Tour: "It was a lot of fun in the beginning, but as the years progressed it got a little weird."

"Paul and Gene know how to push my buttons and Peter's buttons."

The supposed reunion album, Psycho Circus: "I felt it would have been a better album if me and Peter had played more on it."

OZZY OSBOURNE Storms America With Blizzard of Ozz 35 Years Ago

Artist: 

Dallas, TX - March 15, 2016. North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands  hosts Ozzy Osbourne on the 35th anniversary of his best-selling solo debut Blizzard of Ozz.
 
Having been fired by Britain's heavy metal pioneers Black Sabbath, by 1980 Ozzy Osbourne was, for all practical purposes, washed up. Ozzy found himself with low self esteem and a raging drug and alcohol problem. If not for the heroic actions of his then-manager and future wife Sharon Arden, Ozzy would never have been offered the chance to clean up his act and hold auditions for a new band, where he discovered a diminutive 25-year old guitarist, Randy Rhoads, who inspired Osbourne.
 
After waiting nearly six months for Blizzard of Ozz to be released in the US, Ozzy's 'Crazy Train' nearly derailed his solo career with two of the most notorious incidents ever in rock history, including a shocking stunt in a record company conference room involving a live dove. Ozzy explains to InTheStudio host Redbeard what happened.
 
'So Sharon (manager) says to me 'We've got to make an impression.' She says, 'I want you to go into the board room, take these two doves, and throw them up in the air as a peace offering.' So, I drank a bottle of booze in the morning and said, 'I'll make an impression.'  - Ozzy Osbourne.
 
Nevertheless Osbourne would end up selling over four million copies in the US alone while helping to define the '80s pop-metal movement with classics 'Crazy Train', 'Mr. Crowley', 'I Don't Know' , and 'Suicide Solution'.  Additionally in this interview, Ozzy makes a passionate plea for anyone struggling with substance abuse to seek free help.

One On One With Mitch Lafon - MICHAEL SWEET

Artist: 

STRYPER's MICHAEL SWEET joins Mitch on episode 203 of One On One With Mitch Lafon.

Link to episode: http://www.spreaker.com/user/talkingmetal/1on1-mitch-lafon-203-micheal-sweet-stryp

In the episode's only interview, Stryper's Michael Sweet discusses the band's plans for a To Hell With The Devil 30th anniversary album tour this fall, his upcoming solo album One Sided War, the upcoming acoustic Stryper album, the second Sweet & Lynch album, his desire to make an album with Whitesnake's Joel Hoekstra, physical ailments that affect his band mates and him, the guilt he feels towards the other members of Stryper, Tom Werman & the Against The Law album, and a lot more.

Quotes from the MICHAEL SWEET interview:

"I'm never going to say, 'I quit'. I can't quit music. I might quit Stryper someday. That day may come sooner than we all think, but I'm never going to quit music."

"Thirty years To Hell With The Devil came out. That was the groundbreaking album for Stryper. That was the one that all others are compared too."

To Hell With The Devil: "That album was the classic Stryper sound. The classic Stryper look and everything that we were, should be, are and want to be was in that album. It was real. It came from the heart. There was nothing forced."

To Hell With The Devil: "That album is a real timeless album. If you put it on this this day, it still sounds good."

"When I put on Yellow And Black Attack it doesn't sound good to me. It just annoys me to listen to it."

Solo album One Sided War: "This is a heavy album and it's going to surprise everybody. This is as heavy as Stryper."

"I got (Whitesnake's) Joel Hoekstra on a few songs. I started doing all the solos and after a few days it all started sounding like Stryper, so I reached out to Joel."

Sweet & Lynch: "George and I have discussed another album. I would personally like to be in and recording it by the end of this year."

BRYAN ADAMS Channels Rock Royalty For Latest Album 'Get Up!' InTheStudio

Artist: 

Dallas, TX - March 2, 2016.  North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio: The Stories Behind Historys Greatest Rock Bands reunites with multi-million selling international star Bryan Adams to talk about his latest album Get Up

Bryan Adams has been recording hits for four decades now, rekindling his famous songwriting partnership with Jim Vallance and recruiting ELO mastermind and producer Jeff Lynne to record some of the strongest songs Bryan has released in years. Bryan tells InTheStudio host Redbeard, The idea wasnt really ever to make an album though (with Jeff Lynne). It was really just to do a song or two and see how it goes and have fun. 

Along with the warm close-miced Jeff Lynne production on Bryans catchy Thats Rock and Roll, Go Down Rockin, the celebratory song Brand New Day, the Beatlesque Dont Even Try, and the melancholy Yesterday Is Just A Dream, Bryan shares the back story of who he was channeling for the vocal performance on We Did It All.

I was thinking about Freddie Mercury. I was thinking about how when Freddie sang he was always so emotive and he was always convincing.  - Bryan Adams

Get Up, Bryans 13th album, may be thirty-five plus years into his recording career, but as he tells InTheStudio host Redbeard, its as vital to him as the day he started making music.

I have the same exuberance and enthusiasm for writing music now as I ever have. I dont know if I write the same songs as I used to write. I think these stand up, and the true test of it is playing it live. These songs feel like theyve been in the set already for along time.  -  Bryan Adams.

Double Stop Podcast - MICHAEL THOMPSON


In Episode 90 and 91 of The Double Stop, Brian is joined by guitarist Michael Thompson (Michael Thompson Band, Animal Logic, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Shania Twain).

Michael Thompson discusses his life and career, and explains how he became one of the most sought-after session guitarists of the last twenty-five years. A small sample of his sessions includes Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, 'N Sync, Toni Braxton, Phil Collins, Rod Stewart, Christina Aguilera, Michael Bolton, Mariah Carey, Bette Midler, Madonna, Animal Logic with Stewart Copeland and Stanley Clarke and Shania Twain. And producers such as Mutt Lange, Quincey Jones, Babyface, and David Foster. In part one we go through his personal history, and in part two we talk about specific sessions.

 
 
On working with Mutt Lange (with Shania Twain), and the grueling hours - part 2 58:30 "He make it great because he's not busting your ass. He's trying to get the great performance - that's his whole thing. He's not looking for you to play it correctly, he's looking for you to play it with what he calls "The Grease" on it. "

On working with Madonna Part 2 41:00 "She was sitting like two feet behind me, commentating on every note I played. And not in a great way. 'Oh no, I don't like that. That's ok. No. No.' So I just had to survive it."

On working with Michael Jackson (on The Earth Song) Part 2 44:45 "They had the lighting really low in the studio and we were working on the tune for an hour or so. And I'm doing a part, and I'm looking down. And I realize that Michael's come in and sat down right next to me while I was playing... Originally they wanted Michael Clapton to play on that, but he was either on tour, or busy or something."

One on One with Mitch Lafon - JEFF PILSON

Artist: 
 
 
FOREIGNER's JEFF PILSON joins Mitch on episode 197 of One On One With Mitch Lafon.
 
In the episode's only interview, bassist Jeff Pilson discusses Foreigner's latest release In Concert: Unplugged (available only on Amazon for the benefit of Juvenile Diabetes), working on the Last In Line album (featuring Jimmy Bain, Vivian Campbell and Vinny Appice), working on the Mortal Kombat movie, his friendship with Steven Adler and his potential return to Guns N' Roses and the upcoming classic era DOKKEN reunion.

Quotes from the Jeff Pilson interview:

New album: "It may be acoustic, but it still rocks."

Dokken Reunion: "We've all come to a place where we are very appreciative of the legacy Dokken has. When we finally do something, we are going to try and do it right, but we are going to try and do something. Hopefully, I'll have something to report sometime soon."

Steven Adler & Guns N' Roses: "I'm a huge GUNS N' ROSES fan. I happen to think Matt Sorum is an amazing drummer, but chemistry is something you cannot argue with."

"There is something about the chemistry of Steven with those guys that made a sound that I think is the sound that we all know as that classic amazing Guns N' Roses sound. As great as the band could be in later days, I just never think it had that same desperate energy again. So, do I think he should get the call? Of course, I do. I honestly believe that those guys know that. They feel that deep down."

"I think he's ready and I hope to God he gets the phone call because if he does the world is going to get lit on fire again."

Last In Line: "I'm so insanely proud of that rock. It really feels like a little piece of history and I couldn't be more hounored (than) to be a part of it."

Will you tour with Last in Line: "I would step in in a heartbeat. Unfortunately, Foreigner already has dates."

GRAHAM BONNET Salutes JIMMY BAIN

Artist: 

Graham Bonnet salutes Jimmy Bain in Part 3 of Documentary

All Day and All Night Long is a documentary tour diary on Graham Bonnet (former lead Singer of Rainbow, Michael Schenker Group and Alcatrazz) and his newly assembled Graham Bonnet Band, it follows the band in the studio, at rehearsals and on their first proper tour of the U.K. A multi-part diary covering the band's experiences as the tour progresses and unfolds. The documentary tour diary is produced by Jimmy Kay from Canada's The Metal Voice (https://www.facebook.com/themetalvoice) and Giles Lavery from The Graham Bonnet band

Part 1 https://youtu.be/AAMZhWN1-ro
Part 2 https://youtu.be/GN7SkZhWjuU
Part 3 now available https://youtu.be/TDW_AqG5u98

In part 3, Graham Bonnet returns back to his place of Birth in Skegness, England for a home coming show at ‘The Skycastle’ where he last played the venue 49 years ago. While in Skegness, Bonnet visits his parent’s resting place, his former band mates and his relatives.

While on tour in Glasgow, Scotland Bonnet salutes former Rainbow bassist Jimmy Bain who recently passed away,” I’d like to say something, you lost one of your fellow countrymen, Jimmy Bain and I would like to salute him, a former member of Rainbow.”
In Newcastle, during a radio interview Bonnet states,” I started in 1968 that is my age now 68. It’s been a long trip, to see musical styles change, I’ve been through every kind of era and picked up a little bit of every era and added to my music now.”

Bonnet also tells the tale of when he got fired from The Michael Schenker Group after one show for exposing his penis on stage, in Sheffield U.K. in 1982, “my penis came out of my pants, I encouraged it, it was bit like getting a turtle out of a shell  and I swung it.”
The lineup and camera crew includes Graham Bonnet,  guitarist extraordinaire Conrado Pesinato, bassist Beth-Ami Heavenstone and former FATES WARNING, WARLORD drummer Mark Zonder, and Manager Giles Lavery

GRAHAM BONNET BAND's new album, which will be made available later in the year via Frontiers Music Srl, will also include a bonus disc of brand new recordings of classic songs from the Graham Bonnet repertoire.

One On One With Mitch Lafon - THUNDER

Artist: 
 

THUNDER's DANNY BOWES joins Mitch on episode 195 of One On One With Mitch Lafon
 
 
In the episode's only interview, vocalist DANNY BOWES discusses THUNDER latest release All You Can Eat, last year's Wonder Days, the business of Thunder, why North America has been so hard to 'conquer', his relationship with Luke Morley, getting a record label after years of being independent, the Farewell not actually Farewell tour, and much more.

Quotes from the DANNY BOWES interview:

On the initial reaction to record company's request to record All You Can Eat: "The band wasn't overly impressed with the idea of having finished an album and going straight back in to the studio to re-record it live, but we, in the end, thoroughly enjoyed it."

The future of the band: "Providing we stay happy and healthy, we'd love to release another record in 2017. We have momentum and an international presence which is growing. The ripples of love for the Wonder Days album are still coming home to us now."

Luke Morley: "He's a constant. He's always been there. We are inextricably linked, always have been and always will be. There is no way around that."

North America: "The video for Dirty Love that went number one Dial MTV for six weeks. We sold a quarter of a million albums in America and hadn't even set foot there. We were thinking, 'wow, this is it.' The problem was a man named Kurt Cobain had other ideas. Overnight, the record company changed from being interested in bands like us to being interested in bands like Nirvana."

"We had a tour booked with David Lee Roth and Cinderella in the summer of '91. It was three months in huge sheds. We'd shipped all our equipment, our bicycles, and absolutely everything out there to start this tour. We were so excited and with about five days to go, our American manager rang up and told us to unpack. He said, 'the tour is not selling. It's not about this kind of music anymore. You guys are going to get the reputation for being the house band on the Titanic."
