For a lot of female fronted melodic rock fans she belongs to the hottest rock ladies of the eighties... FIONA FLANAGAN.
Her first two albums are classics in the genre. She released her last album (‘Squeeze’) in 1992. After 20 years she’s back!! With her “forever young” look and a voice that still rocks she delivers an new album called ’Unbroken’. For that album she teamed up with Robin Beck, James Christian, Tommy Denander and a friend from the early days Bobby Messano. When I recently mailed her, I said "Come on Fiona ’Talk To Me’".

The German multi-musician Michael Bormann is well known as the ex-lead singer of Jaded Heart. He was also involved in several projects/bands during his career. The albums that has released with Rain, Redrum, Charade etc. are all fine examples of what this artist is capable of doing! He has a very charismatic voice and every single effort he is releasing is welcomed by his fans across the world!
As a solo artist he has released four very good efforts so far. In order to promote his latest album which is titled 'Different' Michael did some gigs in Spain and Germany. LazyRocker.com attended the show in his hometown Duisburg in a cosy venue called Das Parkhaus. A few hours before that gig we spoke to the vocalist about the past, now and the future…

Robin Beck, the voice of 'First Time' that peaked nr. 1 worldwide, visited Germany in 2009 and I got the chance to have an interview with her about the ‘Trouble Or Nothing’ re-release. Now with her new album ‘The Great Escape’ coming out soon our paths crossed again.
Great vocal performances, musicianship of the highest level and 11 fantastic songs straight from the heart justify an interview with “The One” & only Robin Beck.

At Firefest 2010 I finally was lucky to attend a show of a band whose 1990 same titled debut album still hits my CD-player very often. This band, called Beggars & Thieves and initially made up of lead vocalist Louie Merlino, guitarist Ron Mancuso, bassist Phil Soussan and drummer Bobby Borg, got a lot of airplay with their also same titled single. Since then B&T went through some personnel changes but also released two more albums, "Look What You Create" in 1997 and "The Grey Album" in 1999. At this moment the band is finishing their 4th studio album "We Are The BrokenHearted" which will be released in 2011. Frontman Louie Merlino also sang backing vocals on Alice Cooper's hit album "Trash" and on Fiona's albums "Fiona" and "Beyond The Pale". LazyRocker.com would meet the vocalist at Firefest, but unfortunately that didn't happen. Kindly Louie agreed to answer our burning questions by mail.
