    Default Rainbow

    Just bought the cd The Very Best of Rainbow. Inside the paper it lists Rainbow ROots and Branches. They list 31 different bands that different members of the band have been in. Of course they list 8 different incarnations of Rainbow, and 4 of Deep Purple. The only Black Sabbath on the list is the Dio line up. It (the list) did not go up to the time when Cozy Powell was with Sabbath, or that would have been on there too. Interesting! Not a bad cd either.

    Indeed, the DP timeline shows about 8 different bands along with it.

    I've always thought of making a timeline showing all the different bands I listen to and etc. It would be one interest project.

    And Craig Gruber was in Sabbath just before Geoff Nicholls came in, Don Airey recorded the "Never Say Die !" album, and Bobby Rondinelli was in Sabbath from 1993 to 1995.

    They're on my list of bands whose CD's I'm gonna collect. At the moment I only have "Rising" on vinyl, which I bought during the mid eighties after seeing "Stargazer" at no.3 in a Kerrang poll for the "top 100 greatest songs of all time".

    It was in the 100th edition of Kerrang. I wish I still had it as I'd like to look at that list again and it doesn't seem to be online anywhere.

    Isn't it ironic that Blackmore left Purple and formed Rainbow because it was becoming "too pop", then he goes and does the exact same thing after Dio leaves?

    No, he left DP cos it was becoming too funky, not poppy

    Am I the only one who prefers the Bonnet-Turner stuff over the Dio stuff? I donīt know, Graham Bonnet voice does it all for me.
    Also I think that Joe Lynn Turner has a great voice. I just bought his solo album Slam and I can tell you that is pure classic.

    Oh yeah. Bonnet owns every other singer in Rainbow. Have you hear him in Alcatrazz with Malmsteen or Vai? The guy can sing like no other.

    Dougie White once said that he could easily sing every song from the Dio pr Turner era with Rainbow or from every Yngwie era, but singing Bonnet's song is climbing up and down the note scale in a way nobody elese could sing if your name is not Graham Bonnet.

    No, you aren't the only one. IMO Bonnet is ahead of every singer from Rainbow. DTE is easily my favourite Rainbow album.

    The Dio era of Rainbow is the band at its creative zenith for me. The Graham Bonnet era is a close second. But after Bonnet left, the band turned into a Foreigner clone, in my eyes. "I Surrender"? Ugh. Sounded like Ritchie had surrendered to me and had gone totally in a direction I detested. No offense to the Joe Lynn Turner fans out there, it is just not my cup of tea whatsoever.

    yeah, I Surrender is not the classic stuff we hear from Ritchie, but it is still great for me. And the live rendition in the HTP Live in tokyo is awesome.

    I have no words to express how good "I surrender" is to my ears. I really love that song. There are a lot of good tunes from the Turner era. Stone cold, I surrender, Freedom Fighter, Street Of Dreams

    Oh, and I love Journey and Foreigner, BTW. Great bands.

    Hey, not like you need my approval, but I don't have a problem and never will with people liking musicians/bands that I don't like. It is a very individual and highly personalized thing. I disagreed and strongly disliked the musical direction that Blackmore took Rainbow in after the departures of Dio and Bonnet. That's my right. And Blackmore has the right to not care what I think. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    I like Doogie White alot oddly enough, and it is nothing short of criminal that "Stranger In Us All" received no notice at all here in the US outside of the die hard faithful. I must admit however that I openly sneered when I read an interview where Doogie said he was instructed by Blackmore to write lyrics that would appeal to girls. Whatever happened to just writing and playing what you feel and that was enough? Carefully crafted, flawlessly constructed "power pop" with a nice glossy sheen is like eating at Taco Bell - you'll feel good for a minute, but in the end, it's empty calories and not good for you.

    Iīve hear alcatrazz with Vai. Bonnet sings very well, is just that I canīt stand the way Vai plays the guitar. No offense to Vaiīs fans, but sometimes I want to yell him: "OK STOP!!! I KNOW YOU CAN PLAY VERY FAST, NOW PLAY SOME MUSIC FOR GODīS SAKE!!!

    Yes, Disturbing The Peace is Vai. It's actually my favorite Alcatrazz album, though their first one, No Parole From Rock And Roll, is notable itself and it definitely worth checking out.

    Their third effort, Dangerous Games, is a disaster and I would not recommend it to anyone.

    What do you people think about Stranger In Us All -album? I just went and bought all Joe Lynn Turner-era albums + this one. I'm listening it right now for the very first time and I'm very open minded about it. It's not bad after listening two tracks of it...

    I really enjoyed it. My only gripe was the production was a bit hollow. I particularly didn't like the drum sound on that album, and thought they could've spiced up the rhythm section a bit. But I enjoyed a number of songs off of it... Wolf to the Moon, Black Masquerade, Ariel, a few others. I really enjoyed the tour for that one. Blackers played very well, and the setlist was quite good - showed that Rainbow didn't need the epics to put on a solid rock show. And I liked Doogie's voice. Such a nice change. I'd have prefered the band to have gone into a 15-year coma than had to listen to that drudge with Joe Lynn Turner. I could never stand his voice.

    I listened Stranger Us In all twice and now I have listened Joe Lynn Turner-albums, and I think Stranger In Us All is a bit better than those. Not qoing to top Dio-era albums and Down To Earth though.
