If you have bought a ticket for those gigs, please call the venue for the final confirmation before you decide to trip or not trip to the places.

Hello! Finally, the Impellitteri recording is in the final stage. Please look forward to the release! We will update when the release date is decided.
Also to those of you who have recently ordered a CD from Bonnet Rocks Store, we are sorry for the delay of shipment as Graham has been so busy finishing the album with Impellitteri that he has been unable to autograph the CD you ordered . We appreaciate your patience.
August 31st, 2001 - Back in LA with Chris
We know many of you are wondering "What happened to the Impellitteri recording???" or "Has Graham left the band ready?" Not. :-) All right. Rest assured that Graham IS recording with Chris now back in LA. It appears that they have completed six songs for the album.
Although all we can do is to patiently wait for the recordings to be completed, please look forward to the CD as it is going to be another great, heavy album, we believe. Anyway, Graham has been so busy!!!

Dear GB fans in Europe:
First of all, thank you so much for supporting Graham for a long time. We are pleased to announce that Graham will be doing a show with his old friend Don Airey in England! The date is Friday, July 27 at 7:30 pm, at Portsmouth Guildhall, Guildhall Square, Portsmouth, PO1 2AB, England. For the tickets and direction, www.portsmouthguildhall.co.uk/default.htm.
Graham is very much excited to see his fans in his home country after looooong time. It has been twenty one years since he did the legendary show with Rainbow at the Castle Donington back in 1980. For old fans as well as new fans, this will be a GREAT chance to see that Graham still ROCKS, so don't miss it!!!
The good news is that a few more dates, including earlier ones, will be posted here very soon. Please check back.
June 15th, 2001
We have received quite a few questions about whether Graham's 1st and 2nd solo albums have ever been released on CD or not. The truth is that the 1st solo album was released on CD, coupled with "Line Up", in 1987 only in Japan. But unfortunately it's out of print now. As for the 2nd solo album (No Bad Habit), it has never been released on CD in the past. However, some of these songs were included in a CD called "The Rock Singer's Anthology": Warm Ride, Is there A Way To Sing The Blues, Won't You Join Me. They might be found at a used CD site such as www.gemm.com, or eBay.
Keep on Rockin'!
