Great interview! Brian May is so cool...a rock star and a PhD in Astro-physics! :) Paul

A great producer can make a HUGE difference on the overall quality of a musical release. Producers shape the sonic landscape for the recordings, the arrangements, final song selection, and provide performance guidance in order to maximize the talents of the artist. I've been fortunate to work with Keith Olsen on both Bonrud CD's that have been released as well as the third one which is slowly

I'm looking forward to his book and the new CD as well. I've enjoyed almost all of their studio albums. Paul

While I know this isn't melodic rock, how about Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run" and Flock of Seagulls "I Ran"? :) Then of course the uber obvious to those of us on this website...Journey's "Keep on Runnin'" :) Paul

Deen's really made a mess of his life. He's a talented guy but this is not going to turn out well for him no matter what is decided in the courts. He has nobody but himself to blame... Paul

I really liked the song in their video and agree it was well done. It's nice to see Chris making music on his own terms and enjoying his life in a well rounded way. Paul

I loved the albums Sports, and Fore. Great albums! I remember listening to Fore repeatedly while painting my neighbor's house one summer as a kid. Their music made the work easier and the days quicker. :) I got to see them in concert in the 90's and really enjoyed the show. Their music is feel good fun. Paul

I've seen half of the Toto 35th anniversary concert that was shown last night on Palladia and they sounded great. Lukather is incredible and all of the musicianship and creativity of that band is superb. There are lots of subtle nuances to their music that us musos can appreciate. I stole a couple guitar licks from what I heard Luke play last night and I am a better musician for it! :) Paul

Thanks Scott! Yeah, Rick has an incredible voice for sure. Rick gave me all three of the Conditioned Response CD's when we first met. Those guys were great! Kent Stevenson from Conditioned Response is playing bass on a few of the new Bonrud songs we're recording right now. Kent played bass for us at MRF3 too. Paul

Hi! Thanks so much for supporting my music and caring enough to ask about our new music! :) The good news is that we ARE indeed working on new tunes with Keith Olsen. We're not working on them very fast but we are indeed working on them. Rick Forsgren and I spent Sunday recording a ton of vocals for a new song and I have been editing them and singing more backing vocals myself this week. We're

Hi! I do not yet have the new Toto but I may end up getting it. I'll give Revolution Saints a few more spins because I do like the guys...and most people now Journey is my fave band. :) Still, that disc has been missing something for me thus far but who knows? Maybe I'll eventually find that it sticks. Paul

I will definitely put "Good to Be Bad" back in my car to revisit that disc and will give Revolution Saints a few more spins. Granted I have only listened to Revolution Saints maybe two times through so far. Maybe I'll eventually warm to it. In regard to brick wall limiting...I personally hate it too. However, it's really hard as an artist to NOT want your CD to be pretty loud when al

I'm not usually a fan of cover songs on albums let alone an entire album of cover songs but I do understand why he may have wanted another crack at sprucing up these songs. I personally would have preferred another all original follow up to Forevermore (especially with Doug Aldrich on guitar!!!) Forevermore was an incredible CD which I thoroughly enjoyed. I have the previous WS CD with Doug too b

The cover art for the Bonrud "Save Tomorrow" CD cost me $1400. The artist did a FANTASTIC job. I believe Andrew had our CD ranked as 3rd best cover art for 2012. In total, I probably paid just under $2000 for all of the artwork (including booklet layout, etc...) for that CD. That's a fair chunk of change given the economics of the melodic rock music market. I was happy with the final ar

I've never heard of him either and I'm a pretty big Journey fan. :) Wouldn't 1989 be right around the time of Bad English? Paul

That is correct. Jimmy helped start Tyketto. He then moved on to Mariah after the previous incarnation of that band (called Pretty Boy) cut loose their bassist and keyboard player. Jimmy was easily the most well connected guy in Mariah (east coast connections) which lead to them writing a couple songs with Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora. After Danny Vaughn left Tyketto, the vocalist in my ba

Jimmy DiLella wrote "Forever Young" and one other track on the CD. He's in the credits. I believe the rest of the band is given writing credit on the track too but from my understanding, most of that song was written by Jimmy which doesn't surprise me...he's a brilliant songwriter. Paul

Definitely a great CD. I still love the song "Forever Young". That song was written by a friend of mine who was also the keyboardist in the band Mariah. Paul

The band did sound fantastic and yes, Dave is not and has never been the best singer but he is an entertaining front man since he has personality in spades and isn't afraid to show it. :) Sammy is clearly the better vocalist (and also a very good front man but a bit more typical in that department). I saw them on their tour back in 2012 and the band was super tight. Yes, Dave was loose with the v
