ROBIN BECK

INTERVIEW AND PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJALA

Robin Beck is an American singer, best known for her 1988 single “First Time” which topped the charts in the UK and in Germany. The song had come to widespread public attention via its use in a Coca-Cola commercial. But Robin has done a lot more than just that. Her first album, SWEET TALK came out in 1979 and altogether she has released 9 studio albums, the latest one UNDERNEATH in 2013, and several successful singles including “Save Up All Your Tears”, “Tears In the Rain” and “Wrecking Ball”.

Here is the new and latest from the Robin Beck camp. Her brand new album UNDERNEATH was released at the end of August and since the album is amazing I thought it was time to have a chat with Robin in order to hear what she’s been up to. We talked about the album, how it was to work with her husband James Christian (House Of Lords) on UNDERNEATH, about her co-operation with Swedish guitarist/producer/songwriter Tommy Denander and about live shows and touring.

Legendary James Christian (House Of Lords) has finally released a solo album. It took him nine years to finish LAY IT ALL ON ME and is long waited for by the fans and myself. Since I think Mr Christian is an amazing artist I got in touch with him in order to get to know a little about the new album and the story behind it. Read and enjoy what the master of AOR music has to say.

BOBBY KIMBALL

INTERVIEW BY MARKO SYRJALA AND PATRICK CLEMENT

Bobby Kimball is a Texas-born American singer, best known as the first (and longtime) frontman for the rock band Toto. In 1974 Bobby moved to Los Angeles where he formed a new band called S.S. Fools. They released one album, but split up shortly thereafter. About half a year later, Kimball was asked by David Paich and Jeff Porcaro to join five session musicians to form the band Toto. Kimball sang on the first four successful studio albums by Toto, but parted ways with the band in 1984 during the recordings of the ISOLATION album. Bobby Kimball then relocated to Germany for a solo career and to work as a session singer. In 1998 Kimball rejoined Toto and stayed until the members went their separate ways in 2008. Lately Kimball has been touring around the world with the ‘Legends-Voices of Classic Rock’ package with other legendary singers and band-leader Tommy Denander. Tonight Kimball performed solo with the band at Helsinki’s On the Rocks club and after the show we had a pleasure to sit down with him and discuss about various topics.
