Graham's post-Alcatrazz projects included the 1994 Blackthorne project (working with ex-Balance guitarist Bob Kulick), and numerous session work.
By the late ‘90s Bonnet put together another two solo discs, Underground, released in 1997 and The Day I Went Mad, (1999) featuring guitarist Slash, Def Leppard’s Vivian Campbell, Bruce Kulick and others.
In 2000 legendary Japanese metal band Anthem contacted Bonnet to re-record their classics in English. "“That was a funny gig",” says Bonnet. “"Some of the translations came out rather comedic. We had to change things around a bit so it didn’t come off like a farce. I liked it a lot but we only did three gigs and it was over.”"
Bonnet rejoined Impellitteri in 2001 for their System X album, then hooked up with Italian guitarist Dario Mollo's project Elektric Zoo (2004) and Matteo Filippini's project, Moonstone, featuring the track “Not Dead Yet.”
An unusual surprise came when he went in to do some studio work with the Taz Taylor Band. “"Taz is a British guy who lives in San Diego",” says Bonnet, "“the rest of his band are American. I got together with him as a songwriter/session kind of thing. To me the record was more guitar oriented, I personally wanted it to sound more rock. It’s too polite."” Taz counters with "“I love the way Graham's voice sounds on this record. We thought he had done a great job. Graham brought a lot to the songs in terms of the vocal melody and lyrics."”
Taz goes on to say, “"We worked pretty much in the same fashion as Graham had done previously in Rainbow and MSG. The songs were recorded in their entirety, arrangements in place, guitar solos everything.... except vocals, before Graham even heard them. He then came up with all of his parts. He commented after doing the first few that he found it very easy to write to my music. I responded that maybe this was because I learned to play guitar by listening to records that he sang on!”" To both their surprise the record has been well received by fans and critics alike. "“So, we wrote these tunes, put the album, Welcome to America out and I thought that was it",” says Bonnet of his involvement. “"Then, suddenly we’re got two months worth of gigs"
Taz explains, "“I think the album has captured people's attention because it hearkens back to a better time in music. It reminds them of bands such as MSG and Rainbow, it sounds like people making music that they love and not following trends.”"
The Taz Taylor tour came right as Bonnet was reforming Alcatrazz. "“It actually gave me a chance to get in fighting shape",” said Bonnet.
Graham toured with Taz that May“ and then flew to Finland for some dates with Joe Lynn Turner. and then back home to work with Alcatrazz.
In 2008 Graham made a guest appearance on the first solo album from Spain's experimental guitar player J21, entitled "Yellow Mind: Blue Mind". Graham can be heard on two songs —, "The Edge of Now" and "The Truth Behind The Veil". Other guest musicians on the CD include Trey Gunn (KING CRIMSON, KTU, TREY GUNN BAND), Geoff Tyson (T-RIDE) and Ed Mann (FRANK ZAPPA).
He carried on writing and touring with Alcatrazz and in Autumn 2010 they took part in the "Voices Of Rainbow" a special mini-tour of Japan, also featuring Joe Lynn Turner (RAINBOW, DEEP PURPLE, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN) and Doogie White (CORNERSTONE, TANK, RAINBOW, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN). They performed three dates.
Sep. 27 - Big Cat - Osaka, Japan
Sep. 29 - Bottom Line - Nagoya, Japan
Sep. 30 - Shibuya C.C. Lemon Hall - Tokyo, Japan
That same Autumn Graham was contated by Walter Giardino, leader of Argentinean hard rock band Rata Blanca and one of the most influential hard rock guitar playes of South America. They formed GBS (Giardino/Bonnet/Smith), featuring Greg Smith on bass (Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow/ Blue Oyster Cult/Alice Cooper/Ted Nugent) and Rata Blanca members Fernando Scarcella on drums and Danilo Moschen on keyboards. The band performed one date in Buenos Aires on December the 18th 2010 . The set list included songs from Rainbow's Down to Earth album, Alcatrazz hits and Walter's solo material.
Now in 2011 Graham continues touring with Alcatrazz as well as working on various exciting proyects and ideas. Stay tuned!
