Alcatrazz - "Turn of the Wheel" (video)

Το μακρινό 1983 ο (πρώην τραγουδιστής των Rainbow και Michael Schenker Group) Graham Bonnet δημιούργησε στο Los Angeles τους Alcatrazz, οι οποίοι συνεχίζουν (με... μεγάλα διαλείμματα) μέχρι τις ημέρες μας. Η πιο πρόσφατη επανένωσή τους έγινε το 2019 με δισκογραφικό αποτέλεσμα το πολύ καλό περσινό "Born Innocent".

Τον περασμένο Δεκέμβρη ο δημιουργός της μπάντας (Graham Bonnet) έμεινε εκτός Alcatrazz με τα υπόλοιπα μέλη να τον αντικαθιστούν με τον Doogie White (βλ. Rainbow, Yngwie Malmsteen, Michael Schenker Group, Tank, Cornerstone κλπ). Το αποτέλεσμα της συνεργασίας (δίσκος) αναμένεται στα τελειώματα του έτους με το βίντεο του τραγουδιού "Turn of the Wheel" να προετοιμάζει το έδαφος...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Alcatrazz - "Turn of the Wheel" taken from the forthcoming new studio album due fall 2021! The new album featuring original members Jimmy Waldo and Gary Shea, along with new vocalist Doogie White, drummer Mark Benquechea, and guitarist Joe Stump will be released in the fall of 2021.

Pre-order will begin on July 23rd. "Turn of the Wheel’ was the first song we wrote together” states vocalist Doogie White. “When I heard the riff and the groove, I thought HERE WE GO! From that moment, it was all hands on deck to do the best album we could. ‘Turn of the Wheel,’ as a complete RAWK tune works brilliantly.”

Doogie continues “we spend so much time wondering about how the mistakes we made yesterday could be made better tomorrow that we forget about today. Today is what we have. Yesterday is gone, and we may not have tomorrow”. Formed in 1983, Alcatrazz became famous for its blend of melodic and progressive rock and for introducing guitar hero’s Yngwie J. Malmsteen and Steve Vai.

Emerging in 1983 with No Parole from Rock 'n’ Roll, which featured the hit “Island in the Sun,” the band continued building popularity in 1985 with their sophomore effort, Disturbing the Peace, which contained the hit, “God Blessed Video.” The band issued one more studio LP, 1986’s Dangerous Games, before ceasing operations the following year.

The band regrouped and released Born Innocent in 2020, their first studio album containing all-new material since 1986. Alcatrazz released the following statement in regards to 2021: "We are extremely happy that our good friend Doogie White will be our singer for the 2021 Alcatrazz tour dates.

We are all fans of Doogie's voice and impressive catalog of music. We promise an explosive live show of the Alcatrazz classics that you know, plus some added selections from Doogie's work with Rainbow and Michael Schenker. We might even have a couple of new songs for you as well! We look forward to seeing all our fans and friends in what we hope is a much-needed return to live music next year! See you all soon... Be safe!”.»

  1. Δηλαδή του φάγανε το συγκρότημα του Graham;

  2. Το γίνεται στον όμορφο κόσμο της μουσικής βιομηχανίας!

    1. Καλώς ή κακώς (κακώς δηλαδή) τα ονόματα των συγκροτημάτων είναι επιχειρηματικά brand names (με ότι αυτό συνεπάγεται ως προς την λειτουργία τους και το νομικό πλαίσιο που κινούνται)...
