Graham Bonnet is considered one of the finest Rock vocalists
of his generation. Beginning his career in the sixties Graham
was one half of the pop duo The Marbles who scored a
worldwide hit single with the Bee Gees written song Only One
Following on from the Marbles Graham embarked on a solo
career in the seventies and was one of the first signings to
former Beatle Ringo Starr's record label Ringo records.
Following one self titled album Graham was approached to
replace Ronnie James Dio in Rainbow. Graham featured on
the album Down To Earth and also the hit singles Since
You've Been Gone and All Night Long before he left Rainbow
in late 1980 following Rainbow's performance at the first
Monsters of Rock festival at Donnington.
Following his departure from Rainbow mid way through recording the follow up to Down To Earth Graham recorded his second solo album Line Up which featured many guest artists such as Cozy Powell and Micky Moody. The album also spawned the hit single Night Games which became a staple of Rock radio stations worldwide. Following the release of Line Up Graham then joined the Michael Schenker Group recording just one album entitled Assault Attack and the hit single Dancer. Preferring the band format Graham decided to form his own American based rock band Alcatrazz with whom he would record three studio albums and a live album. Graham left Alcatrazz in 1987 when the band folded and he picked up his solo career once more which has continued to this day. Graham's first self titled solo album was released in 1977 and was originally released on former Beatle Ringo Starr's Ringo Records. The album was critically well received and featured a broad selection of covers including Tired Of Being Alone, Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow, (snatches of which Graham used to sing live whilst with Rainbow) and a cover of Bob Dylan's It's All Over Baby Blue which just missed out on being a hit single in the UK. Amongst the musicians backing Graham up on the album are Micky Moody, Graham Preskett, Tony Hymas Mike Giles, Stevie Lange and Pete Zorn. The album was a big success in Australia and has been unavailable for some time on CD and never before released on CD in the UK.
