INTERVIEW AND PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJALA

Graham Bonnet is an English rock vocalist and songwriter who started his musician career already in the late 60’s with the band Marbles. Bonnet is best known about his brief career in Rainbow with whom he recorded classic album DOWN TO EARTH in 1979 and working with Michael Schenker Group on ASSAULT ATTACK in 1982. He has later on recorded and performed as a solo artist, leaded his own band Alcatrazz and worked on numerous projects including Moonstone Project, Anthem and Lyraka. Bonnet has been a regular visitor in Finland on the past ten years and this year made no exception here. I was able to catch with the man himself on late March in Helsinki and here are the results of our interesting discussion. Read on!

JOE LYNN TURNER

Joe Lynn Turner’s recording career, spanning three full decades, is too impressive to be described in just a few sentences. He will, however, forever be first and foremost recognized as the man responsible for leading the legendary hard rock band Rainbow to it’s greatest commercial heights. Taking over the reigns from Graham Bonnet, who had only endured one album in the giant shoes left by Ronnie James Dio, Joe recorded three classic albums, DIFFICULT TO CURE in 1981, STRAIGHT BETWEEN THE EYES in 1982 and BENT OUT OF SHAPE in 1983. Before reuniting with Mr. Blackmore once again, this time at the helm of Deep Purple to record the SLAVES AND MASTERS album in 1989, Joe helped Yngwie Malmsteen craft his arguably best work to date, the ODYSSEY in 1988.Through the years Joe Lynn Turner has also released numerous well received solo albums and worked with many great bands such as Mother’s Army. In the past decade he has, among other things, worked with Nikolo Kotzev on five albums, Brazen Abbot’s EYE OF STORM in 1996, BAD RELIGION in 1997, GUILTY AS SIN in 2003 and MY RESURRECTION in 2005 as well as Nikolo Kotzev’s double album NOSTRADAMUS in 2001. He’s also released and toured several albums with fellow Deep Purple alumni Glenn Hughes. We hope that you enjoy this look into Joe’s career, past, present and future!
