From Launch Radio Networks:
When Triumph is inducted into the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame tomorrow (March 10th) in Toronto, it will mark the first time that singer-guitarist Rik Emmett, bassist Mike Levine, and singer-drummer Gil Moore will appear together in almost 20 years. There was a fair amount of bad feelings on both sides when Emmett left the group to start a solo career back in 1988, but that’s all in the past now.
In fact, Moore told us that he and Emmett have become fast friends again: “I felt badly that it went off the rails, you know, when it did a long time ago, and I, you know, I’ve always wanted to try to get back to talking, and this provoked it, and it’s been great, you know? I spent four hours last Sunday (March 4th) with Rik Emmett, just sitting (and) drinking coffee (laughs), talking, and it was like, ‘Where’s this been for the last 15 years? ‘It was great.”
Now that everything’s OK between them, people have started to wonder about the chances for a Triumph reunion tour. Emmett’s got a full plate with his career, and Moore is deeply involved in the day-to-day operations of his Metalworks recording studio complex in Mississauga, Ontario, so it would take a lot to get the band on the road. But Moore told us that promoters call regularly, and he expects to get more pressure at the ceremony tomorrow from a band insider: “We’ve been getting them (calls), you know, every year, and, you know, of course, it’s always the same thing: ‘You know, we’re at odds with Rik, so there’s no chance of that.’But now that we’ve reconciled with Rik, I think the prospect of playing is just something that we’d have to see how it works out in the future. Our, our agent’s flying up from L.A., so he’s gonna be here for the ceremony. I’m sure he’ll be twisting all three of our arms really hard.”
Triumph, along with songwriter and producer David Foster, will be honored during the Canadian Radio Music Awards at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel, which is part of the annual Canadian Music Week.
Boston Vocalist Brad Delp Dead At 55
Atkinson police responded to a call for help at 1:20 p.m. and found Delp dead. Police Lt. William Baldwin said in a statement the death was “untimely” and that there was no indication of foul play.
Delp apparently was alone at the time of his death, Baldwin said.
The cause of his death remained under investigation by the Atkinson police and the New Hampshire Medical Examiner’s office. Police said an incident report would not be available until Monday.
Delp sang vocals on Boston’s 1976 hits “More than a Feeling” and “Longtime.” He also sang on Boston’s most recent album, Corporate America, released in 2002.
He joined the band in the early 1970s after meeting Tom Scholz, an MIT student interested in experimental methods of recording music, according to the group’s official Web site. The band enjoyed its greatest success and influence during its first decade.
The band’s last appearance was in November 2006 at Boston’s Symphony Hall.
On Friday night, the Web site was taken down and replaced with the statement: “We just lost the nicest guy in rock and roll.”
A call to the Swampscott, Mass., home of Boston guitarist Barry Goudreau was not immediately returned Friday night.

Tigertailz signs with Sanctuary Records
Reunited U.K. rockers TIGERTAILZ have inked a deal with Sanctuary Records for the release of their new album, “Thrill Pistol”. “This new TAILZ album will be a double CD pack that will also include a ‘bonus’ disc of the original ‘Wazbones’ album which was originally recorded in 1991 but never officially released,” reads a posting on the band’s web site. “In many people’s opinion, the ‘Wazbones’ record was the best album the ‘TAILZ ever made. The later released version was re-recorded with new songs. [The CD will] feature all the original songs which were recorded in 1991 at Monnow Valley Studios [in] Monmouth, Rockfield Studios [in] Monmouth and Front Page Recorders [in] Costa Mesa, CA, USA. The album featured a ‘Clockwork Orange’ theme with all the band members decked out in the same clothes as the characters in film.”
TIGERTAILZ will enter the studio in April to record the new CD for a tentative August/September release.
TIGERTAILZ bassist Pepsi Tate recently spent time working on what will be the ‘TAILZ’ first official DVD release. The new DVD (provisionally entitled “Blast”) will contain footage from last year’s European live shows as well as lots of outtakes, interviews and also the recent promo video “Falling Down”.
Dream Evil is the 4th studio disc by DIO. On this disc, former Rough Cutt, and Giuffria guitarist Craig Goldy replaced fan favorite Vivian Campbell on guitar. Did Goldy live up to everyone’s expectations? If anything, he exceeded them quite a bit. This disc is heavy and melodic. The sound is quite similar to DIO’s past efforts.
Night People is a high speed rocker that starts off Dream Evil right. Great guitars by Goldy and heavy bass strumming by Jimmy Bain.
Dream Evil is always the track that I remember best from this disc. I remember wearing the cassette version of this song out in my car stereo many years ago. It still sounds cool today. The keyboards give this song a Holy Diver, Last in Line kind of feel. Great stuff!
Back when this cassette first came out, I didn’t care for Sunset Superman very much. The lyric was too silly for me at the time. I have grown to like this track a lot more over the years. The guitar work on this song is stellar.
All the Fools Sailed Away is one of my favorites on this disc. This is one of the more melodic songs on Dream Evil, and one of two tracks released as a single. Killer stuff!
Naked In the Rain is a pretty good song, but the image of Ronnie James Dio being Naked In the Rain makes me want to run out of my house screaming.
Overlove is a exceptional high speed rocker. Vinnie Appice sounds like he is beating the hell out of his drums on this one. Great Stuff!
I Could Have Been A Dreamer is another great track that was released as a single off of Dream Evil. This is another classic DIO track, and one of my favorites.
Faces In the Window is a pretty good headbanger. This song is a stand out on Dream Evil that never really got the attention it deserved. I think this would have been a better track to close out Dream Evil with but they didn’t ask me to mix it…lol.
When A Woman Cries is a solid Dio track. It isn’t one of my favorites on this disc, but its a good track.
Dream Evil is still one of my overall favorite solo discs from DIO. Plenty of great tracks on this one that I still play and enjoy today! If you haven’t picked this one up yet, you can pick this up for $10.00 off of Amazon.com. Dream Evil is a bargain at this price!
Wait……you aren’t done….yet! See what the other the Metal Madness Knights are saying about Dream Evil at the links below: Heavy Metal Time Machine, Heavy Metal Addiction, and Pulses, Verses and other Flotsam!
