Robin Beck
<p>Here we go... Talking about <strong>Robin Beck</strong> isn&#39;t something really easy. What to say about a singer who should have been as big as Lita Ford and Doro Pesch? What to say about an artist who&#39;s got a classic album as &quot;Trouble Or Nothing&quot;?</p> <p>Robin Beck has always been one of the greatest female voices of rock, other than being one of the nicest people I have ever met... This interview with her shows us her own view of her career, which started in the seventies and is still going strong. Robin&#39;s new album, <strong>&quot;Love Is Coming&quot;</strong> is out <strong>NOW</strong>!!! As good as it seems to be, one can expect another great, classic AOR release of a singer who proved long ago to be essential when we dare talking about melodic rock.</p> <p>Ladies and gentlemen, with you, the one and only <strong>Robin Beck</strong>!!!</p> <p><em>Criss Sexx</em></p>

By &rsquo;79 three albums had gone platinum in Canada and two charted in the States, receiving serious radio airplay. By &rsquo;81 Triumph was firmly established as one of the premier touring rock acts in North America, with generous FM radio airplay support and heavy rotation on the fledgling<strong>&nbsp;MTV</strong>&nbsp;cable channel. In the next seven years, the band released ten gold albums, with four turning platinum in Canada. In the U.S., two went gold.</p> <p>(previously posted on Palace of Rock, here is a short feature about&nbsp;the music scene of Toronto with Triumph guitarist Rik Emmett)</p>

Well, for those who don&#39;t, he was the guy who replaced original Britny Fox singer Dean Davidson, and whose incredible pipes and talent took the band to &quot;the next level&quot; with their 1991 &quot;Bite Down Hard&quot; album, which only got the recognition of its being the band&#39;s best album ever till this day. Here&#39;s a complete, down-to-earth interview with the man himself, who talks about his days with Britny Fox, his other past and present projects and, especially, about his brand new, very first solo album, the stellar &quot;Tommy Paris Band&quot;.<br /> <br /> <em>Criss Sexx</em></span></span><br />
