He explains his early days, and learning guitar. He covers the formation of Night Ranger and walks us through their early albums and eventual break-up. He discusses his first solo album, Lone Ranger, as well as Mother's Army - his band with Joe Lynn Turner, Carmine Appice and Bob Daisley. He reveals for the first time the recent discovery of 5 lost Mother's Army songs that he is preparing for release.
He talks about the formation of Night Ranger, and why he decided to leave in 2008. He also discusses what led to him meeting his Night Ranger replacement - Joel Hoekstra - and their surprise jam at the Randy Rhoads Remembered show. He also discusses his plans to join the upcoming RRR tour. The bigger surprise is that Joel Hoekstra will be guesting on Jeff's next single - following his new song "Squirrels & Kerosene". And finally, Jeff announces his plans to re-release his solo track "Around the Sun" in tribute to his late father.

NEONFLY Launch New Video 'Better Angels'

Artist: 
Tuesday, March 3, 2015
Categories: 
 
Brand new video for NEONFLY's ‘Better Angels’ single, shot on a Cyprus beach featuring Two Team GB Olympian gymnasts, unveiled.
 
‘‘Strangers In Paradise’ is so buoyed by steely self-belief and winningly infectious choruses, that you could imagine them beating the odds and taking slick songs like ‘Better Angels’ and ‘Heart Of The Sun’ to the huge venues they were clearly written for. KKKK” (Olly Thomas, Kerrang! December 12th 2014).
 
“It’s been three years since London’s Neonfly unleashed their fine debut ‘Outshine The Sun’ and the band have been no slouches in that time, racking up tours with the likes of Magnum and Dragonforce. The touring has raised their profile exponentially, to the point where their sophomore effort, ‘Strangers In Paradise’, is something I’ve been looking forward to, and it doesn’t disappoint. What I like about Neonfly is that they show a fair degree of dexterity on their songwriting, taking more from the worlds of hard rock and AOR than fantasy power metal Everytthing here is an improvement on their debut, from Willy Norton’s clear vocals to the songwriting itself, which is of the highest order. Opener ‘Whispered Dreams’ bristles with a hook you will never forget, while ‘Better Angels’ is a melodic hard rock attack that will win hearts the world over. 8/10” (Bruce Turnbull, Powerplay, December 2014)
 
“‘Better Angels’ is a sublime, immensely memorable slice of commercial power metal” (Classic Rock - Heavy Rotation - February 2015)
 
In the wake of rave reviews of their superlative new LP, ‘Strangers In Paradise’, hard driving melodic metal rockers Neonfly are releasing (album standout song) ‘Better Angels’, as a digital single, coupled with the exclusive b-side ‘Falling Star (Piano Version)’, [featuring the tinkling ivories of guest keyboard player Günter Werno from Vanden Plas], on Inner Wound Records on March 2nd, via all digital platforms.
 
Neonfly have today unveiled the video for ‘Better Angels’, shot on location in December 2014 on the beautiful coastline of South Western Cyprus, against the dramatic backdrop of the wreck of merchant vessel Edro III. Alongside the band, the video features the outstanding gymnastic talents of 2012’s Team GB Olympians Lynne Hutchison and Jade Faulkner, who were part of the Rhythmic Gymnast Team. The video showcases the stunning athleticism, grace, vivacity and poise of these awesome athletes, all subtly woven into the seascape narrative. Check it out at www.youtube.com/watch?v=4FumJoTCjGA
 
Neonfly, who comprise Willy Norton on vocals, Frederick Thunder on guitars, Andy Midgley on guitars, Paul Miller on bass and Boris Le Gal on drums, have already carved out a formidable live reputation following a slew of eyebrow-raising high profile support slots with the likes of Alice Cooper, Magnum, H.E.A.T, and Dragonforce. A band very much ‘on the up’, Neonfly are now poised to win over a whole host of new fans with the release of ‘Better Angels’, a “sublime, immensely memorable”, immediately hummable, stunning single.

The Radio Sun record Roxus song on new Spaceman EP

Aussie melodic rockers have just released an ep/cd titled Spaceman which contains songs that will not be featured on the upcoming second full length album.
 
Vocalist Jason goes on to say that songs like 'Spaceman' and 'Never Knock A Believer' were fun projects, stylistically a bit different for the band but heavy rock nonetheless, yet with the interest they created we thought we'd make them available on hard copy cd".
Guitarist Stevie goes onto say that "the Roxus 'Body Heat' track was recorded as a 'tip of the hat' to a band we all grew up with. Roxus were Australia's best and they should have been bigger".
 
The Radio Sun 4 song ep can be purchased at the following link for $10 US dollars with free shipping world wide: http://theradiosun.com/spaceman-ep-pre-orders-available-now/ The Radio Sun second full length album is currently being mixed by Paul Laine and is scheduled for a mid 2015 release.
