  • Eric Blair of “The Blairing Out With Eric Blair Show” recently conducted an interview with legendary hard rock vocalist Graham Bonnet (RAINBOW, MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP, ALCATRAZZ, IMPELLITTERI).
  • In 1979, Bonnet auditioned for the frontman position in RAINBOW. With his James Dean image, the choice of Bonnet to replace Ronnie James Dio was subject to some questions. However, once the band heard Bonnet sing, they knew they had their man. With Bonnet at the mic, they recorded the “Down To Earth” LP, which became one of RAINBOW’s most successful releases.
  • Graham moved on from RAINBOW in the early ’80s to work on his solo career. He also played with MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP, recorded several albums with ALCATRAZZ and had a short stint with IMPELLITTERI.
  • Truly this is a major problem, with the price of CDs and vinyls being just about reasonable, the fact of the matter is that mp3 is more affordable and often bought more. It seems the days of consumerism for the Music industry has all but dried up. Surely something can be done now that the problem has been acknowledged, what are your opinions on the subject?
