I am proud to announce that my band Chinawhite is featured in edition 40 of the famous British magazine Fireworks.
Not only did Nicky Baldrian publish an interview with yours truly, our song How Many Miles from our latest CD Challenges is also present on the free CD that comes with the magazine. You can hear a sample of that track on our audio page.
Just read the unbelievable news that the mighty Ronnie James Dio passed away after fighting cancer for over 6 months. First my condolances to all his family and friends, he shall be missed but never forgotten.
I think the first time I heard him sing was on the Long Live Rock ´n Roll album by Rainbow. He was a powerhouse then, as he was on his most recent output. An unearthy achievement most singers will never be able to reach. The Rainbow album still ranks among my favorites. Rainbow Eyes for instance is a ballad few can match. And the hard rocking tunes are timeless also.
Yes his passing is a great loss to the world. I will keep on listening and he will be entertaining other folks or fighting the dragons, be it in Heaven or Hell… Rest in Peace.
Coming weekend is the second edition of the Melodic Rock Fest as organised by MelodicRock.com. Alas I won’t be there, but I hope that Andrew (who runs the site) will be able to welcome a lot of visitors to make this happening financially viable. The line up looks killer, so I am sure it will be a great party.
If you like melodic rock and are able to join, visit the Fest in Illinois USA!
