GREG SMITH

Current OVER THE RAINBOW/TED NUGENT bassist Greg Smith started his successful career in the early eighties when he first joined WENDY O’WILLIAMS’s recording and touring band. Later on he worked with such names as VINNIE MOORE, ALICE COOPER and JOE LYNN TURNER before he was asked to join to the very last incarnation of Ritchie Blackmore’s RAINBOW in 1994. Greg recorded RAINBOW’s last studio album STRANGER IN US ALL in 1995 with Ritchie, vocalist Doogie White, drummer John O’Reilly and keyboardist Paul Morris but after a couple of years the band disbanded. Later on Greg worked with BLUE OYSTER CULT, re-joined ALICE COOPER’s band before he decided to do something different, a Broadway musical called “Movin’ Out”. Next it was TED NUGENT who asked Greg to join his band and in addition to that Greg has lately been doing shows with DOKKEN, JOE LYNN TURNER and now with OVER THE RAINBOW.  OVER THE RAINBOW is a brand new band, formed by a group of former RAINBOW members:  Joe Lynn Turner, Tony Carey, Bobby Rondinelli, Greg and Richie Blackmore’s son Jurgen Blackmore on guitar.  OVER THE RAINBOW was playing at Swedenrock last June and then Greg was kind enough to give us the latest news as well as some other interesting stories about his past and future.

There are always lots of speculations and rumors flying in the music world and sometimes those turn out to be true. After fifteen years, the classic line up of Black Sabbath: Ronnie James Dio, Geezer Butler, Ronnie James Dio and Vinny Appice, decided to put their pieces together and do a world tour under name Heaven and Hell. “The Dio years” collection was released prior the tour and it also included three brand new Black Sabb… I mean…Heaven and Hell tracks. Band kicked their world tour in U.S on last April and on early June they reached Finland and Helsinki.

DIO

Interviewed By EvilG
If there was ever a person I would say “I’m not worthy” to, it would be this man. I’m talking about one the most influential and STILL one of the best vocalists to grace the heavy metal scene. Despite my lack of worthiness, I was lucky enough to talk with Ronnie James Dio for thirty minutes about Dio, Rainbow, metal and his future plans. So without any more of my rambling and drooling, here you go my interview with the voice of heavy metal…Ronnie James Dio!!!!

Listen in MP3: 30 mins, 6.9megs

Interview with Ronnie James Dio

Sauna Open Air festival (see -> http://www.sauna-open-air.fi/news.htm) was held in Tampere, Finland for the 2nd time in the beginning of this June, and this year the organizers had expanded the festival from last year?s one day festival to 3-day festival by gathering together three big names for the festival (Slayer, Dio and Megadeth) that made to move our lazy asses to Tampere for three days, making it overall the kind of festival to any metal dude or dudette who wanted to enjoy some quality acts playing there this year. 

Our main plan was to interview Slayer at the Sauna Open Air ?festival (both of us being huge Slayer ?fans), but since their management had told that there?s no point for the Slayer -guys to get interviewed this time by any press people  – having no new album out yet or anything, we changed our plans just at the very last minutes and asked a possibility to interview Mr. none-other-but Ronnie James Dio instead.

We got something better than what we originally ordered. Namely the whole band arrived to the backstage area to do the press thing, sat down on the other side of the table, getting ready for an interview and looking amazingly relaxed and comfortable. We put the tape recorder rollin? and started bombing with our questions mainly directed to Ronnie… and here?s the result. Enjoy folks.
