Graham Bonnet, a man with a decent claim to be considered as one of rock’s premier vocalists, has just released a new single, ‘Livin’ in Suspicion’, taken from his band’s recently released album Meanwhile Back in the Garage.
The new single was written by Russ Ballard, a man best known as the guitarist and vocalist in 70’s band Argent, for whom he wrote many of their better-known songs, notably ‘God Gave Rock n’ Roll to You’, ‘It’s Only Money’ and ‘Tragedy‘. He’s written for Bonnet previously, penning amongst others the hit single ‘Since You’ve Been Gone’ for Rainbow when Bonnet fronted them in the late seventies.
Bonnet will be taking his band out on the road for a sixteen-date tour to support the single and the new album in August, beginning in Glasgow on August 8th and concluding with an appearance at the Stonedeaf Festival in Newark on August 25th.
Graham Bonnet has a long and distinguished pedigree singing in classic rock bands, having an impressive track record of fronting bands such as Rainbow, Michael Schenker Group, Alcatrazz and Impellitteri and the quality of his vocals down the years is undeniable. In his mid-sixties now, he still has what it takes to front a rock band.
