Graham Bonnet interview

Graham Bonnet picQuestion: What do guitar gods Ritchie Blackmore, Michael Schenker and Yngwie Malmsteen, animal impersonator and ornithologist Percy Edwards, and fictitious comedy-film band Billy Beethoven have in common?

The answer, of course, is legendary vocalist and frontman Graham Bonnet, who embarked on a  ‘Catch the Rainbow’ UK tour in March 2014. I caught the show at HRH AOR at Hafan-y-Môr, Pwllheli and was thoroughly entertained. After all, where else these days can you see full-on rock performances of some of Rainbow’s finest moments performed by a genuine member of the band? (Drummer Bob Richards even has the late, great Cozy Powell’s drum kit!)

I caught up with Graham just prior to the tour for some equally entertaining ‘Down to Earth’ banter. (Ouch!).

If you’re not too busy listening to Glunk, you can read the full interview on Über Röck’ now:
