Legendary vocalist Graham bonnet (Rainbow, Alcatrazz, Michael Schenker Group) recently gave an interview to “The Blairing Out With Eric Show“. The singer talked about Neil Peart’s death, and answered whether Rush had an influence on his life.
“In my life, not much. But I love the band. I mean, he was an incredible lyricist, as well as a great drummer. [They were] the most amazing band ever, but I didn’t really like the melodies or the voice. Since i am a singer, I like to hear what I call an interesting voice.”
“Geddy Lee’s voice is interesting, but I had no idea what the hell he was singing about. That was the problem – for me, at least. I’m also deaf, so that’s probably another problem.”
Graham Bonnet (born 23 December 1947) is an English rock singer and songwriter. Bonnet’s style is described as being a cross between Don Johnson in Miami Vice and James Dean. He is also known for his powerful singing voice but is capable of also singing soft melodies. His singing has been noted as ‘very loud’ by both his contemporaries and himself, and he claims to be a self-taught singer with ‘no discipline for lessons’.
I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
