  11. Karmen Klinc and Erina Seitllari of VENUS 5 live from Slovenia! Venus 5 is primed to be one of the most fresh and exciting new musical prospects to emerge from the European metal scene in recent years. The concept for Venus 5 started with the idea of creating a “metal” version of pop projects that have proliferated over the years, but to give it the credibility that comes with an ensemble of supremely musically talented individuals. Assembling the vocalists and musicians required a tremendous amount of time and energy as the right talent had to be in place to work together cohesively and with true chemistry. There was zero interest in making this strictly about appearance, which needed to be secondary to talent. The result is that five outstanding vocal stars in the making have been brought together from different musical environments (and countries) to work together with the vision of creating a monster album that could be unleashed on an unsuspecting public. While comparisons to this being a "metal version" of pop projects might lead one to think that the visual aspect of Venus 5 would take the lead, please make no mistake, the music here is front and center. Venus 5 is recommended for all lovers of the current European metal scene. Some say they are the heavy metal version of the Spice Girls …Please welcome Karmen Klinc and Erina Seitllari vocalists of VENUS 5 to Interviewing the Legends … Preorder The debut album By VENUS FIVE At https://orcd.co/venus_5 www.frontiers.shop/search?sSearch=venus+5 Frontiers music shop www.frontiers.shop Available in stores on June 10th 2022 Venus 5 is composed of five amazing singers hailing from different European territories.

  13. Jimmy Fox: Only Band Member to Play on all James Gang albums: Exclusive on Interviewing the Legends! Hello once again everyone I’m your host Ray Shasho and welcome to another edition of Interviewing the Legends. Brought to you by The Rock Star Chronicles Series One my new book featuring over 45 intimate conversations with the greatest music legends the world will ever know. Available now at bookbay.com and amazon.com. The James Gang is one of classic rock's earliest power trios. Though the band's line-up changed numerous times during a seven-year existence, rock historians and fans cite the lineup of Joe Walsh, Jim Fox, and Dale Peters as the James Gang's definitive line up. The James Gang became an influential source for decades after the band's demise in 1976. It's most famous member, Joe Walsh, left the band early on to join the Eagles and his replacement, Tommy Bolin, later quit to join Deep Purple, never giving the band a proper fighting chance at becoming superstars. The band hit its stride with James Gang Rides Again. The lineup of Walsh, Fox, and Peters proved to be a hit success as the album went gold, peaking at number 20 on Billboard. With the addition of keyboards, the band's hard boogie and groove found new heights on Rides Again 's collection of hard rockers and sensitive ballads. The riff-heavy track "Funk 49," a sort of follow up to Yer Album 's "Funk Number 48," hit number 40 on Billboard and today has one of the most memorable classic rock riffs. In 1971, the James Gang kept their songwriting energy vibrant with the release of Thirds. The album, once again hit Billboard at number 27 while the instantly recognizable single "Walk Away," stopped at number 51. Things were going great for the band and the future looked good until the winter of 1971 when Walsh, the true driving force of the James Gang, left the group. In the late 1990s, the James Gang reunited with Peters, Fox, and Walsh for the occasional show, including a 1996 election rally for President Bill Clinton at Cleveland State University. Please welcome the only James Gang member that has appeared on every album … drummer Jimmy Fox to Interviewing the Legends … Very Special Thanks to John Herdt for arranging this interview with Jimmy Fox.

  14. Explosive Excerpt from Recent Interview with Roger Fisher and Mike Fisher on Interviewing the Legends! After legendary guitarist and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Roger Fisher was invited to perform with Heart songstress Ann Wilson on stage and asked to perform on her next album, Roger felt great! It was awesome to reconnect with his ex bandmate once again. So he thought, why not try and reconnect with sister Nancy Wilson? Roger went to visit Nancy after her show and tried to wait for her at the meet and greet line, where fans pay to meet their favorite artists after or before a show. But the legendary Heart guitarist was denied access and asked to leave by Nancy's staff leaving Rog totally confused and quite hurt. Roger and Nancy had performed together at their induction at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremonies in 2013. This excerpt was taken from a zoom interview I did with Roger and brother Mike Fisher (The Magic Man) on March 10 of this year. The complete zoom interview can be found on You Tube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z2y4bI2vq4w I was also fortunate to zoom interview with Ann Wilson.

  15. Singer Marc Storace States There Is Still Unfinished 'Krokus' Business! MARC STORACE was already internationally successful with the Swiss cult band "TEA" in the 1970s. TEA released 5 albums and 3 singles. In 1979 Marc became the voice of KROKUS. After their first album with Marc, "Metal Rendez-Vous" (with the hit "Bedside Radio"), the rise to a successful international career was unstoppable. KROKUS played several world tours and sold over 15 million records and won many gold and platinum awards. After internal quarrels, KROKUS broke up and Marc released the album “Blue” in 1991 with the band “Blue”. The hit "You Can't Stop The Rainfall" is still played on the radio today. In the 90s and 2000s Marc starred in 2 feature films (“ANUK” and “HANDYMAN”), and again achieved gold status with various KROKUS formations and 3 albums. Marc stayed present with his fans with many guest appearances such as “Rock Meets Classic”, “Sweet 50th Anniversary”, “Ken Hensley live in Switzerland”, “Schubert In Rock”, or on the albums of Manfred Ehlert's “Amen” and the rock opera “Test”. In 2008 the music scene was surprised with the news that the original formation of KROKUS would go on tour again. The success was indescribable. Tours in the USA, Japan, Europe and South America as well as 3 new studio albums, which in turn achieved platinum status, proved that KROKUS was still flourishing after more than 2000 shows in the last 30 years. In December 2019, KROKUS played their farewell concert in the sold out Hallenstadion in Zurich. Marc started working on his solo career at the beginning of 2021. His first solo CD is released in the USA & Canada February 5th, 2022 and going on tour with his own band “STORACE” in autumn is in the works. The fans will be amazed at the enthusiasm and freshness with which “STORACE” rocks the stage. He will showcase songs from his new CD and from his long career since the 1970s. Swiss hard rockers Krokus have retired. But singer Marc Storace is obviously not ready to stop. As STORACE, the now 70-year-old has his solo debut with LIVE AND LET LIVE. He does what he does best: he rocks. Without delivering a pure imitation of his former band. A bluesy undertone has crept in again and again, as in "Time Waits For No One", he has a rich power ballad in the program with "Lady Of The Night", the piano-driven "Don't Wanna Go" lets the emotions run wild. With "Paradise" you can hear folk influences, while the Rocker otherwise presses hard on the classic rock pedal. With LIVE AND LET LIVE, Storace has succeeded in making an excellent, heterogeneous new beginning that will win over both old Krokus fans and new listeners alike. Please welcome the distinctive and powerful voice of Swiss Hard Rock legends KROKUS and new band STORACE ... MARC STORACE to Interviewing the Legends ...
